20 Most Recent Canon FS200 Flash Media Camcorder Questions & Answers


I have a Canon FS200 and a brand new SD 64 GB card. When I try to initialize the card, the camera says, Failed: Process Terminated with Error, but it doesn't tell me what the error is. Can you???

I cannot tell you what the error is, but perhaps I can give you some tips on how to solve the problem. First, try to read the SD card on your computer. Is it formatted? if not, format to FAT 32. Are there any file structures? If so, erase and format the SD card to FAT 32. If these activities do not work, then try with another SD or SDHC card (type 10 if possible) and see if the error is replicated. From there, recommend contacting Canon customer support for assistance.

How do i get sound through my tv

You will need a 3.5 to rca ( RED,WHITE,YELLOW) , then select the input source video, 1,2 or 3 pending what tv you have , if you have no rca inputs and just a screw in cable input , you can buy a converter for around 20 bucks , good luck

How do you change a file type on the canon fs200

I know it's probaly pointless in 2014 to post this, but all you need to do is rename the video file so that it has an ".AVI" extension (Google "show extension names on Mac" if you need to). The ".PGI" file is used only by the camera, and is not used for any type of decoding on other devices (meaning you don't need it, and should just delete them).

I put the memory card from my Canon FS200 video

You definitely have anti-virus installed in your system (Computer), As a result system prompted for SCAN & fix due to possible virus or worms found in your device (Canon), At the moment you click that "Do you want scan & fix canon", the system have cleared/deleted the virus or worm infected file, In the result you are unable to find the video files again or If it is there it will not run. I would recommend you to formate your Memory Card and then use it. There is no way to recover that video again.
Hope this will help,

I lost my cd instalations disks for my canon

Go here ...is teh official Canon support site ..select the operation system you use and download the original software again ...even if it will ask for the serial it will have to accept the one from your camera ..but it will not ..
another thing that you may do if this will give you trouble ...is to use the direct card to download the video s..Being a flash memory card ...all you need is a card reader that fits with the card ...and the computer will see the card ann all that it is on it directly ..from the card ...and you will be able to copy them just like from a memory stick ..

I have a Canon FS20 camcorder. I have recently switched to a mac; however I need the transfer utility software to download the pics from the camera to the iMac. I already have image mixer for mac.

Do you have iMovie? On mine, with any camcorder I've had, when I have iMovie running and plug the camcorder in it automatically changes to the Record mode. Click on the forward button and it will start the camcorder. Press the Record button when you get to the part you want to record. You can then edit the beginning or end of the section to use the portion(s) you want. The software controls the camcorder to go frontwards or backwards. Works very slick. Not sure what to suggest if you don't use iMovie.

On the bottom of the camers on the battery door there is a sticker with some letters and numbers. The serial number is the first 12 numbers that are listed on the first 3 rows. No letters at all.
