    Thank you from what I can see all the settings are the same, (rebooted) I had windows reinstalled, so everything was back to scratch, I even rang canon and they could not help.

    Thanks for that I do own a DVD recorder although we have never set it. I will get this going and see how I go, although I really would like to use movie maker, thanks again.

Movie maker is a great program. But since you re-booted(I'm not sure I know what you mean by that) you should go into the settings and see that the moviemaker settings are the same as they were before.

    OK...Try this. If you have- or know someone that does- own a stand alone DVD recorder. The type that can record TV shows on DVD. Ask to borrow, or use it to transfer, using video cables, to disk. That way you still save your tape to DVD, and then can use the DVD to edit/copy using movie maker or Nero or Roxio, or what ever duplicating program you have on your computer. It's real time, but if the tape was worth taping, the work-a-round is worth doing. If you go to www.3btech.com you can purchase a vhs/dvd recorder for 79 bucks. I did. It works well with all formats and disks. (no dual layer) But it really works best with DVD+RW, and you can even edit right in the machine. And with DVD+RW there is no need to finalise

    After you get it on DVD you CAN use movie maker to do the finished product.

Please tell me why didn't the audio on a video I shot today transfer with the file when I uploaded the video file to my computer? The video transfered but the audio is not working. I created a movie...


Check to see if all your drivers are updated. Check to see that your volume button is up, and not muted. Im sure this will help out. Good luck. Your removing some sort of memory stick to your computor? or tranfering from a RCA cable, Check you drivers.

How to Save a Movie From a Panasonic NV-GS11 Video Camera to a PC


I bought my Panasonic NV-GS11 video camera from eBay and for the cost, it seemed perfect. I liked the feel of the camera, it's simplicity of use, until I tried to transfer my movie to a PC and that's when the trouble started!
Normally, when you connect a camera using the USB connection, your PC recognises the device and you can use it straight away. I had no end of problems getting the PC to do this and I thought the driver was at fault.
The answer, in hindsight, is that in the menu there are 2 items for the USB Function, "web camera" and "DV Studio" - the software for acquiring still photos from the camera. Choose "web camera", connect your camera to the PC via the USB connection and switch on the camera using the Playback mode. Check "My Computer" and there should be a video camera icon with "USB Video Device" beside it. Double click onto this icon will open up a page, where if you start your movie from the camera, you can see the results on the PC screen. Unfortunately, there's nowhere on this page where you can save the movie itself.
I searched with Google and found the answer. Many people had the same issue but there didn't seem to any answers. Eventually, I found one reply on a forum way down the page which provided the solution.
Download Windows Movie Maker from the Microsoft page. This is for Windows XP:-
http://www.download.com/Windows-Movie-Maker-Windows-XP-/3000-13631_4-10165075.html
Open Movie Maker and you will see " Capture from video device" This allows you to save your movie into a directory of your choice and later burn the movie onto a CD using your favourite software.

We are trying to get some Hi8 footage onto our macintosh computer. We have both the VHS camera and the Elura 90. We have a firewire and have successfully transfered lots of digital video onto the computer,...


the procedure is the same ..for vhs...but you will need a firewire cable ..also ..and a program that will import from device...The issue is that Im not sure what program you need for MAC ..but if you have a windows computer available to do that ..things are getting simple..just follow this video..
http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876
So...if you have a movie maker in your Mac ..the procedure will be the same ,just playback in the camera ...be sure it is detected by the firewire cable...and record (import ) with the movie maker...
Please dont forget to rate if this helps...

How to download video from digital video camera to laptop


First, you need a program on your computer that searches for connected digital video devices. Like Windows Movie Maker! Look for Windows Movie Maker on your laptop. If found, bring it up and there should be a task panel on the left side. Near the top, there should be something that says "Capture from video device". (Or something close to that.) Click on it and Windows Movie Maker will search for connected video devices. It should find you camera and will show you what you need to do. (Make sure your camera is turned on play mode.) Windows Movie Maker is a very easy to use program and allows you to add music, transitions and all kinds of cool effects to your videos. If you have any questions, please ask.

Can't upload videos to computer


I had to install the software that came with the camera before it would properly work. Windows would recognize that some USB device had been plugged in but would not properly be able to tranfer data. Hope this helps.

DCV-TRV460 Tranfer to DVD


Converting analog video, like from Hi-8, 8mm, and VHS to digital video is not as simple as plugging in a cable. If you happen to have a DVD recorder deck, you can burn a disc from the footage directly. Otherwise, you'll need to get some sort of capture device that converts the analog information to digital, then burn a DVD. I use a Hauppauge TV capture card, it converts signals from coaxial cable to digital on my hard drive. There are small, USB-based video capture devices readily available, some come with editing software, but you can always use Windows Movie Maker on a PC, or iMovie on a Mac.
