My HP Pavilion 9000t cannot seem to detect my Canon ZR830 camcorder. Even though the Canon shows "DV IN" when I connect the firewire, after using system restor to roll back prior to Windows update, and after updating the IEEE driver in device manager, the computer can't find it. Annoyingly enough, I was previously able to "see" this camcorder on my computer. No help on the Canon site, and no help on the HP site either.
First check if other USB device is working in the USB slot on your computer. Disable the anti virus or firewall from the system and then connect cam corder . ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have an old Daveco TR-05-A tripod I inherited. It was bought for use with an old 8mm Sony Handycam, but I would like to simply use it for a still camera.

I have just bought a Panasonic SD700 camcorder. It is fantastic. But I am a novice and all I want to do is to transfer the files to my laptop and watch them. Media Player wouldn't play them so I downloaded Codecs which has partially solved the problem. Downloaded VLC Media Player which again has partially solved the problem. I can now see the home video clips but there is a significant amount of horizontal line distortion (best way I can describe it) when the camera or the subject moves.

The screen on my M380 does not show the image. The camera is fully charged and when I press the "on" button, the lens extends and opens. The screen is illuminated, but there is no image of what the picture will be.
