Question about Canon Elura 60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

DV In Message Won't let me output from DV

Hi, My Elura 60 won't transfer video through firewire to a computer or DVR. When I plug in the cable, the bottom right of the screen say's "DV IN" and to video comes through the connection. I've done this type of transfer a million times and I can't figure out what is wrong. I have made sure that the AV-DV OUT is turned off. Heck, I've actually tried it both ways. I've tried turning the camera on and off, plugging the DV cable in at different times. Please help, Chuck Temple [email protected]

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.
Click the link below for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

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.
Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .

Why cant i just use a usb cable to put my videos on a computer instead of the DV cable that didnt come with thecamcorder

Simply because it won't wrok.
USB will only transfer stills from a cardn not video from the tape.
Use an appropriate firewire cable, also called iLink or IEEE1394.

How to transfer sony dcr-hc26 videos to pc using usb cable thanks

The Sony HDR-HC26 is a miniDV tape based camcorder. No surprises if you can't get USB streaming working.

ALL miniDV tape based camcorders transfer DV-format video by conneting the DV port of the HD camcorder to the Firewire port of your computer. USB won't work. The "DV" in miniDV = Digital Video. It is as digital as the digital video from flash memory or hard disc drive or DVD based camcorders - only better because it is not compressed as much as the others.

Memory cards are not the only way to store digital video - and while not as good as miniDV tape, memory cards are not as bad as DVD based consumer camcorders...

Firewire IEEE1394, DV and i.LINK are all the same thing.

If your computer does not have a firewire port, hopefully it has an available expansion slot (PCI for desktops; PCMCIA or ExpressCard for laptops), so you can add one.

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..

Can't download my video from my elura 40mc to new hp vista laptop

Go to canon's website navigate to its download page for camcorders, then plug in information about your operating system and download the new driver for Vista. Restart your computer, plug in cable and camcorder. Should work.

Additionally if you want clean up your registry, use free Eusing registry fixer to fix most problems. It is a stable product.
