    The cable you have - did it come with the camera?
    Check the Manual - if you have a software disk that came with the camera there is likely a bigger manual in PDF format.

Connect the camera to the Mac with the firewire cable.
Open iMovie and capture the required footage.
Send the iMovie project to iDVD and burn a disc.

I need to copy videos from my cannon mv700i camcorder and i have a 1394 cable port on my pc what cable do i need to transfer the videos from my cam to my pc/


You need a cable that is called by many names- Firewire, DV, IEEE 1394, and Sony call it i.Link. Many names for the same thing, but they are mostly just one type, with a small plug for the camera end and a larger one to fit the PC. The easiest way to get the right cable is to search Amazon for "canon mv700i firewire". I found a couple right away for less than $10.

How to transfer videos to my pc


I assume you mean videos you've recorded on the MV700i? You need a FireWire card for your PC.

But most computer shops will sell them. The camcorder - from memory - comes with a FireWire cable. The "small end" plugs into your camcorder - and the "big end" into your new FireWire PC port.
Then you just need Windows Movie Maker to do the job. You can download to the PC in AVI format if you wish - but for most purposes use "Other settings" -> "Video for local playback (2.1 Mbps)"

What cable is required to download the recorded video on tape?


To download from the tape (not the memory card) you need a firewire cable, and a computer that has firewire compatibility. Most laptops have this, but desktops may require a firewire card to be installed.

How do you put video from your camcorder to your computer?


With a Canon ZR70MC camcorder, you can record video onto miniDV tape, or onto the SDmemory card in Card Camera mode.

To access video on the miniDV tape, you will use the DV cable (IEEE 1394 aka FireWire). Connecting this cable to your windows computer will allow you to transfer high quality video using the software supplied on the digital video solutions disc, or just about any other windows video editing software.

To access videos stored on the SD memory card, remove the card and place it in a card reader connected to your computer, or attach a usb cord to the camera and the computer. Video stored on the memory card is limited to 10 second clips @ 320x240 resolution.

About transfering video from the tape into PC


Hi, You do need a firewire cable (which is normally provided with the camera) and a firewire port in your computer in order to get images off the tape which you have recorded onto.  The card however can be accessed via USB.  The card can store video as well as pictures although if it is the card that you bought the camera with it probably has very low memory. If I were you I would take one of these two solutions 
  • Buy a firewire cable and a firewire PSI card for your computer.  Use an editing software eg. Pinnacle or Windows movie maker to import video files from camera. 
  • On the camera above the power switch (camera, OFF, play), there will be a switch which at present is down indicating to video.  Switch it up to card.  This will then record video to your card which you can load to your computer same as the pictures.  You might need to buy a new SD card (located in compartment -Multi Media Card- next to lcd screen.) these can be quite cheap and 1 GB can hold more than an hour of footage.
Hope this helps- Any more questions just ask

Problem capturing footage from Canon MV700 DV camcorder to Windows XP


I use Pinnacle Studio versions 9 and 10 without any problems. The software sees the camera MV700i and controlls the playback etc. Have also used Ulead Movie Factory without any problems, but its a little harder when it comes to editing the output.

Saving Dv tape to computer? Getting computer to see camera?


The USB connection is for getting still images (photos) off the camcorder. To get moving images (video) off the camcorder, you must use a FireWire cable (IEEE 1394). The cable only costs about $15. But you need to have a FireWire port on your computer to plug it into -- if you don't have one, you'll have to install a FireWire card. Check someplace like TigerDirect computer parts supplier, they are only $15 to $60 now.

Or, if you don't want to open up your computer to install a FireWire card, you can buy a Pinnacle MovieBox for $120. It just sits next to your computer, not inside. It is very easy to use and comes with great video editing software. You plug the FireWire from your camcorder into the front of the MovieBox, then plug the back of the MovieBox into your computer with USB.

Plus, you can use the MovieBox to record from your VCR or DVD player into your computer! For that, you'll need the standard red/white/yellow cables.

In fact, if your camcorder has those cables, you can use them to go thru the MovieBox, and save yourself the cost of the FireWire cable. But I think FireWire will give better quality than the red/white/yellow cable.
