I have a Canon HF M30 we bought in Dec 2010 and my husband attempted to plug in the cable into the USB port of the camera and discovered it would not 'connect' to the computer. In other words it wasn't recognizing it (we've used it many times before w/no issue) so he unplugged from camera and looked inside USB port on Camera and there was a plastic piece that was broken and just hanging in there. We sent to Canon since it was still under 1 yr warranty and they want to charge us $282 to repair it

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red.
