Did the system come with a setup CD? If so, unplug the DVR from your system, insert and run the setup CD then plug in the DVR and it should recognized.

Hi there,
The thing your laptop is missing is the drivers for the DVR. You can download the driver which is with the .exe extension and install it in your Laptop. Restart your Laptop and connect your DVR.
The link for the driver is : http://www.swannsecurity.com/downloads/drivers/dvr4-1000/
Thanks

My camcorder won't charge, should I just replace the batteries or is it rechargeable because I found a USB cable, is it for charging? Or for transferring videos to a computer or laptop?


The USB cable is not for charging, only for transferring. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then you must recharge them using a separate battery charger.

When I connect My Samsung VP-D77i Camcorder to my Laptop I always get a message saying "cant open camera device". My Laptop does not have a fire wire port but only with USB ports. It has Windows 7 Pre


First, try attaching the camcorder via usb cable with the camera OFF, then turning it on. This may trigger Windows to activate the driver scanner and activate the driver. If you've been attaching with camcorder off, try attaching with it on, to see if that activates driver installation.

If that doesn't work, you may have a low-power usb plug; often the usb ports in the back of the computer put out more juice than the handy ones on the front. You may also need a shorter and more robust usb cable; I've found with various cameras and phones that certain usb cables work fine for recharging but won't necessarily provide adequate data transfer.

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the Windows 7 Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.The Firewire to USB cable won't work with your camcorder,you will always end up with this error.

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.
Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.
Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .

When i connect my phone by usb with my comp,on my phone screen comes a message 'charger not supported'..so i can't transfer any data..


Hello,

This could be a problem with the cable, or the phone itself. You can try a new cable or charger. I would also recommend you speak with the company you made the phone or visit a local phone store to have it serviced and repaired.

Can't upload to my laptop!


Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.


Your Camcorder does not supports a Wireless MIC. However, you can use a MIC with your Camcorder using the available Accessories Shoe port.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Getttin footage from dvr4 securanet


You can find the manual here:
http://tinyurl.com/o59bfx

The rather long full link is here, which is why I provided the tinyurl: ftp://ftp.swann.com.au/drivers/dvr_securanet/Securanet_English_Manual_080508.pdf

You probably just need to connect the USB port to your PC to transfer the video.  But you will need some DVD burning software as well as a DVD burner to be able to create a DVD of incidents.
You might also be able to save videos onto your PC through the network connection rather than using a USB cable, but I am not familiar enough with the product to know if it supports that.
