Hi,
i have the same problem, sony camera which using mini dv tape and hp dv6000 laptop. dv slot in camera but not in laptop. after lots of search i found an halfway solution. you need a card called PCMCIA which you should connect it to laptops remote control slot. and it has a slot for dv (digital video) like camcorder.
now i am busy with searching that: is there one type of MCMACIA card with same slots or we need a special PCMCIA card which has dv slot?

Use a firewire cable. Your camera has a 4pin on it (DV port). Your HP laptop may have a 4 pin DV port in the back of it as well.

What model laptop is it?

What cable do I use to connect my Canon ZR800 to my MacBook Pro 13" to download the video? Thank you.


It is your USB cable you will use to transfer your videos from your camera. Connect your camera to your computer. Play the video. As the video begins to play you will select “capture” from the menu (depending on the application you are using to playback the video). Adobe Premiere and Ulead Visual Studio are very good for capturing/downloading videos from camera. The fact is video editing applications are perfect for capturing. Please note Downloading videos from camera is always achievable only by “capturing” and to capture a video you must play it back. You cannot download videos like mp3s by simply copying.

Macbook not recognizing camcorder


I had this problem when first plugging in my Canon zr80 to my Mac. What I did first was (if you have it) open up the program Imovie in you're applications menu. Then plug the firewire cable into both the camera and computer. Turn the camcorder on and set it to play(VCR). Once this happens you should see a "DV in" on the camcorders screen, followed by a blue window on you're computer. The rest should be easy.

Canon ZR800 - transfering video to DVD recorder


Just want to make sure you are talking about a four-pin firewire cable (small and flat) as opposed to a 4-pin s-video cable (round).

If you are talking about the latter, there is no control signal in an s-video cable so there is no "recognition" possible. Make sure that you have your DVD recorder set to S-video in and then hit play on the camcorder. You will need audio cables too if you want sound transferred. You should see video after you have manually pressed "play" on the camcorder.

How can I view the movie


No, they do not fit in a VCR. First, you need to have a TV that has the three input ports on either front or back of the TV. If you do, then you will need to take the cable that comes with the camcorder, plug one end into the A/V port on the side of the camcorder plug the yellow, red and white cables into your TV. Lastly, use your TV remote to select Input or something like that.

You cannot connect a DV cable to a USB port. These are two incompatible standards. DV is also called Firewire, iLink or IEEE1394. You PC must have that kind of port for you to transfer your video from the ZR800 and you will need a DV (iLink/Firewire) cable. You cannot use USB cable they will not work. Check www.MyCableMart.com if you want an example. Most new PC come with 1 or 2 iLink/Firewire/1394 port. If you PC does not have an iLink/Firewire/1394 port then you will need to install a iLink/Firewire/1394 card (see http://www.usbfirewire.com/Parts/rr-fw-byt.html) for more information.
