Problem capturing footage from Canon MV700 DV camcorder to Windows XP

HI, I am having problems downloading from my Canon camcorder using a firewire cable into my windows xp Sp2 pc I have tried using various software, but although windows recognises the device,none of the software can initialise or analyse the data, it controls the camcorder and starts it playing but nothing records. i have recently had the CCD card changed by canon as it was faulty, not sure if this would cause a problem thanks

I use Pinnacle Studio versions 9 and 10 without any problems. The software sees the camera MV700i and controlls the playback etc. Have also used Ulead Movie Factory without any problems, but its a little harder when it comes to editing the output.

Hi

There is no reason why it shouldn't work. When you attach the camera via firewire the operating system will recognise and show an icon in the bottom right corner. Then whichever application you use to capture the video, when you select the option to capture video via DV it should bring up a little preview window with buttons for rewind,play,forward,pause,stop etc. using these onscreen buttons you can control the camera to set to the correct scene prior to capture. Also you might want to try not playing back a tape for capture but video directly through the viewfinder.

And yes its not that easy to edit DV video after capture. Though the quality is brilliant.

I WANTS SHARP MIN DV VL-DC5 DRIVER


Hi there
Okay so I have carried out some research on the problem you are having.
The VL-DC5 does not have drivers online to download because the drivers in windows XP support this model camcorder
The problem is that you are probably trying to connect the device to your computer using USB.
The drivers in windows XP are only compatible with this camcorder when using Firewire cables.
If you don't have a firewire cable then you will need to buy one and use this to connect your camcorder to your pc.
It should work fine after you have tried this.
Let me know how you get on!

Cannot download video, only Card pictures


I do not know MACs, but a standard 4-pin to 6-pin firewire (IEEE1394) is needed. On Windows XP, plug it in, run Windows Movemaker and you are good to go. By the way, a "DV cable" is a firewire cable.

If your MAC cannot "see" your camcorder, try another firewire device to see if your MAC is the culprit, or drag your camcorder and firewire cable to a friend's PC running Windows XP and see if it works.

After connecting,
Switch on the Cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.

Hi, Since videos are taped in DV format, you need a firewire card (IEEE-1394) and cable. These are cheap. May be your PC already has a firewire card. Just check. Windows XP recognises automatically the camcorder. Moreover, its integrated video capture/editing module, Windows Movie Maker, is very userfriendly. USB connection is only good for downloading still images (photos) to your PC. For more information, go to http://www.videohelp.com/. good luck
