Question about Canon MV960 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My Canon MV960 will not connect to my PC, this is my second camera within 6 months. I have a firewire port installed on PC (Win xp)and all correct connectionn cables. PC has been checked by manufacturer and firewire port is working properly. Camera's did work initially as I have downloaded some video from camera. But now unable to connect. Can connect using USB ports and save video from multimedia card but quality very poor. Please, has anyone had this problem or is there an ongoing fault with this video camera's DV port?
apparently I get wind from researching this issue that it's not the camera, it's not the cable, it's not your computers' hardware, that this is an issue with windows directly. I have the same camera and several other systems with 1394 (firewire) ports, and this camera used to work when I had windows xp service pack 1.

make sure you are using 4 pin to 4pin firewire which looks like this:
Switch on the Cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.

Go to this link. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" and then click on the appropriate link (#4). Basically, once the firewire cable is connected, make sure that the camcorder is in the playback mode, is turned on, and you see "DV IN" on the LCD. If all that is happening, your computer/software should be able to "see" the camcorder and download the video.
