If you have already tried the Firewire and have problems, you might try a different Firewire.
I have had similar problems and found this to be the problem-even though the cable was fine before.
Also, like the other fellow said, you will need a program like Final Cut, Premier, or Movie Maker.

SOURCE: canon gl2 camcorder, how do i download my film to vista

I have a feeling he was talking about the PHOTO option of the GL2 (flash memory). I couldnt get my camera to work with Vista - would not recognize the camera connected with a usb cable (to transfer photos). Went to Canons site and found they do NOT have drivers for Vista. I took a gamble and downloaded and installed the drivers (XPDVSTr111EN.exe) for XP on my Vista box - and this fixed the issue. I can see and edit the photos on teh flash memory of the GL2 fine now. Hope that helps.

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.

How do I get a canon gl2 to work in skype?


Connect your Canon camcorder to your computer using the firewire cable.

2

Allow your computer to recognize the device and automatically set the appropriate configurations. If your operating system does not automatically install the drivers for the camcorder, then you must install them manually, using the CD that came with your camcorder.

3

Open Skype and navigate to the "Preferences" menu under "File" or "Skype" -- depending on which operating system your computer uses.

4

Select "Video" from the preferences menu and click on the drop-down menu next to "Camera."

5

Select your Canon camcorder device name from the list of available options in the "Camera" drop-down menu.

6

Close the preferences menu to save the new camera settings and begin using your Canon camcorder as the video source.

I have a Cannon GL2 and cannot download the driver to my computer off of the software provided. I use a Vista Home Premium operating system and am totaly confounded by the stupidity I have encountered. I...


The driver is incompadible with Windows 7
Lexmark, Sony, & many others have the same problem
Why Windows 7 has this problem? A new programming causes this and it started with the Vista operating sytem before hand
What did Microsoft tell you? Wait for updates from Canon? That is the most likely answer they give everyone I understand

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.
