Thread: PC connect to camcorder

  1. #1

    Default PC connect to camcorder

    OK, I give up. I thought I was computer savvy, but this has me stumped. I cannot get my PC to recognize my Canon GL-2 camcorder as a new device. I have the new Sony Vesga 9 video software, running XP, downloaded the latest Microsoft DirectX 9.0, my 1394 card checks out OK, the Firewire cable is new.
    Nothing happens any suggestions???

    Hey Man,

    This could be way off but is your camera set to the play back mode for capturing onto your computer.

    If its in Camera mode, as in ready for shooting, the camera might not be sending the right signals to your computer for it to recognise it as an external device.
