Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Problem with the firewire port on Canon XL2 camera, computer dose not recognize the camera, can not capture to computer, firewire cable dose not fix the port on the camera well, very loose, is there a fix.


Answers :

If that's the case it will be better if you can buy a firewire to USB converter cable to make that transfer work for you, but the easiest way to transfer file from a memory card of your camera to your computer is to use a memory card reader....
Check on camera you find usb ports on it.
Then connect your camera to computer with USB cable then you can use it in computer.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.
