Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Canon XH-A1s camcorder that I want to synch with my Sikonic Light Meter (cine mode). I know how to do that in theory, but need to connect the camcorder to Final Cut Pro's color tables to get a decent grey card reading from the camdcorder. So, in effect, I need to stream a signal (via Firewire) from the camcorder into FCP, bypassing the log and capture window. I've tried all sorts of ways, but have given up. Please, someone, tell me what I'm missing. Thanks.

Do I need a driver for my sanyo vpc 5885 digital camera because it won't download pictures to my computer via USB anymore. It turns on and then as soon as I push "set" for the PC the lense goes in and it shuts off. My computer had to be fixed and maybe this is why it won't work anymore? Do I need to install or download a new driver? Is there a driver via online or was there a CD that came with the camera?

Samsung camcorder Hi, I have a samsung video camcorder model VP-D107i which has only been used several times. I needed to use it last week to video my husbands funeral service and after charging the battery the cam wouldn't turn on at all, won't eject the tape, won't do anything, it just ticks like a clock.

Battery charging I recieved the Jazz DV179 as a gift. The battery was already in the camera, but I was told that I would have to charge it. I plugged the Camcorder into the wall and left it for over 24 hrs to charge, but when I remove it from the plug it shuts off. If i plug it back into the wall it comes on so i know the camcorder works. I am not sure on how to proceed next. Is there something wrong with the battery?, does the battry need and external charger before you insert it into the camco
