Camcorder on Computer

The USB cable is to download still images only. To download video, you need (1) a firewire cable, (2) a firewire port on the computer, and (3) a video editing software program used to download and edit the video.

Go to this site for your manual.- > http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=326&modelid=8765
Copy this address into a new widow. Check the lower bracket as you open the side to see if it is hung on the tape door, causing the tape cartridge, to rise up and keep the carrier from opening.
