Re: record button doesn't function
You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well.

First off I don't condone or advise hitting an electronic device but, from the advice of another post I did it and it worked. It shouldn't have but it did. I hit the bottom of the camcorder with the palm of my hand and it worked perfectly afterward.
I tried to look over the camera for 20 minues and could not find any slot to put the USB cable in. I looked over the camera just one last time before giving up and and i found a little pull tab on the front of the camera. I pulled the tab and it opened showing a circular insert (for hookup to a TV) and a USB slot!
Thanks Benimur. The first posted solution worked like a charm. I banged the bottom of the camera hard on a book 3 times (what did I have to loose?) and not only did it begin recording properly, but the things I recorded on the faulty setting played fine as well. Weird stuff, really............
I have an elura 65 and I believe this model does not let you download your movies onto the computer in full motion. you can only do it through quicktime or some other similar program using less frames. the higher models: elura 70 etc. are supposed to be capable of transferring full motion film. that's what I understood from the owners manual. hope this helps
