All brands are different but look either under your camera or open up the screen viewer. you should be able to see a small hole that says reset. get a thumb tack or paperclip and push the button in for a couple of seconds. that should do it for you.
let me know if you find it . good luck.

Firstly resetting your camera will not delete your recording.Try re-installing your software then try capturing. Secondly play the tape on your camera then engage the capture button on your computer

How play the recorded video?

The controls for playback are on the touch screen once the camera is switched from record mode to playback mode, if the camcorder isnt playing back then you might ned to have the unit serviced, could be a bad video head assy. I hope this helps.
