Question about Canon ZR850 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi. I am trying to hook up my canon ZR850 to my laptop for the first time using a firewire cable. My laptop has a built in firewire port. I am using windows XP. But windows does not pick up the camcorder. Is there driver software that needs to be installed? I am trying to use it on Pinnacle 10, but not detected.
I did try the windows movie maker soluction but it still is saying no camera

I'm having the same problem Dave; it's not about not having software available to capture, it's that neither my laptop nor desktop recognize that there is a device plugged into the firewire port, although my still camera and jump drive are picked up fine. I left my Canon manual back East on a trip and am waiting for my cousin to mail back to me to see if it says there. Was thinking the camera must need to be on a certain setting, but it's not obvious. It's not the cable or port either, works fine on other devices. Please post if you find a solution somewhere - for us both!
