You cannot use USB to transfer video, the USB is used to take pictures on/off among other inserts. You have to use the firewire to transfer any and all video.

How to connect canon gl-2 camcorder to computer


Are you using the proper Firewire cable to connect? Also, the GL2 has had issue with the Firewire port going bad. Try a different cable and see if that helps. It can't be a USB-Firewire cable either.

No DV output from Canon GL2. Using a firewire cable from DV port on camera to firewire port on Mac Pro tower. Attempting to import the camera live to Final Cut Pro. Previously worked just fine.


Was the tape your trying to import recorded on the camera you are trying to import from? I've noticed that sometimes the tape I recorded on my old Panasonic won't show up on my GL2. It's like it's a blank tape, but I know it's not, as I have it labeled. Stick it back into the panasonic and it plays fine.

Yes, it can be connected to your PC via USB, I guess you have its USB data cable and required manual and drivers CD with you, If not please follow the below link to download manual and drivers for your camera to connect with your PC.

Using GL2 as a webcam


Using the firewire/IEEE cord attach the camera to your computer.  If you are using a Mac it should instantly recognize the external camera when you open iSight or what ever utility you are using to communicate.  If you are using a Windows based computer open MS Moviemaker and it will recognize the camera as well by selecting capture -- once the camera is recognized you should be able to broadcast with it.  If you are using uStream.com sometimes your video capture interferes with the ability to broadcast.  In that case hook up the camera using firewire, connect to uStream -- grant uStream permission to capture using the camera then you can see the video in your browser window.

Canon gl2 camcorder, how do i download my film to vista


I'm having the same problem. I don't have the disks with the camcorder and Vista is not recognizing nor seeing the camcorder. I'm going to try to download Zoombrowser and see if that makes it work.

Connection


A digital video camera may be connected to a computer using an optional OHCI compatible, digital video capture kit available commercially. These kits must be capable of using the IEEE1394 (FireWire) interface to enable you to import digital video signal and still images into your computer. For those models equipped with a separate USB port, the camcorder may also be connected to a computer via its mini-B USB port, for downloading still images recorded on the SD/MMC card.
