Hi, I am trying to import from my Canon MV 600 ( Tape not digital ) into a mac pro. I got the DV to firewire lead but the computer doesnt seem to recognise the camera. Many thanks Billy


Hi in order to get footage off your camera through Firewire i.e DV you will have to use a software to capture the footage. You can use iMovie to capture the footage off the camera.
Open Apple System Profiler (it's in the Utilities folder) and check to see if your camera appears in the FireWire section.

If your camera is connected via FireWire and is turned on, follow one or more of these tips to re-establish the connection to the camera.
  • Turn the camera off and back on again.
  • Disconnect the FireWire cable from your computer and reconnect it. Do the same at the camera as well. If the camera is connected through a FireWire hub, try connecting the camera directly to the computer.
  • Some cameras need to be set to "VTR", "VCR", or "DV" mode in order to communicate with a computer. Check your camera's documentation for information on how to set your camera to this mode if needed
Hope this helps.

How to transfer my minidv video files to my PC. I don't have the dv cable, just the usb cable.


You first need an editing program like windows media, then open that program on your pc and look for the import or ingest or capture video menu. A window should pop up and should ask you to identify the device you want to connect to (your camera usb should be hooked up to the computer with the computer on but the camera off, then turn on the camera before you do the connect to device above) then follow the instructions to either hit play on your camera while clicking capture live on the editing program, or ask the help menu how to capture footage for the specific editing program you have.

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.

Can my camcorder work with imovie and if so how do i get my computer to get download my video?


Open iMovie and set it to capture DV. (Click the camera shaped icon opposed to the siscor scissor shape) When you see a blue screen that says (camera connected) and the image pops on screen of image from tape on camcorder set in play mode, you hit the import button and it begins to capture digital movie using DV compression of whatever you have on tape. You should be able to control your camcorder with the video controllers underneath the project window to make selections for the in and outpunts on the tape you wish to capture. Then switch to edit mode by clicking on the scissor button and import the movies you just captured or use them from the clips menu, etc. renedr movie back to tape, if you wish by clicking back and forth from edit mode (scissors) and capture mode (camera silo) and render to and from tape.
