Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Microphone does not work with MS Messnger and Canon GL2

Hi,

 

I have the latest version of MS messenger with Video conferencing enabled running on Windows XP on a media PC.

 

I connected my Canon GL2 using firewire and downloaded Canon's DV Messenger from the Canon website.

 

The image works fine and tested with a friend but the microphone does not work.  I cannot get microphone signal on the Messenger setup wizard.  When using video editing software everything works fine.  I noticed that Messenger does not recognize 'Canon DV camera' while other software does.

 

Any help will be highly appreciated.

 

Oded

This should a simple fix to enable Messenger if you have your XP disk handy.

Go to "Add/Remove programs"

You will see an add/remove windows components, or something similar.

If the Windows Messenger box is already ticked, untick it and OK it then exit out and go back to this.

Now Tick the box. It may ask you to insert your CD.

Once done, OK it again and restart your PC.

DONE.

If this still causes issues, try downloading Windows Live Messenger (about 175MB) and run it directly from the website. Saving to yourPC has issues and often does not work.

I'm not really clued up with Xbox and other game boxes, so all I have done here is to activate Messenger in one format or another on you PC.

You may have downloaded a version which does not support this feature or you are cross chatting between programs ( Yahoo Messenger to Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Mail for example ) and the option will be grayed out or missing signifying it is not available.
