first time trying to get dv transfer to pc
on Oct 9, 2003 at 3:44:01 pm

Hi, I am a complete novice, first time trying this. I have a Canon ZR-65 mc, and a Dell pc with movie maker, USB-2 ports and firewire. PC does not recognize video cam when using USB 2 cable unless cam is in card mode for stills only. How to transfer videos? Do I need to buy a firewire cable? Dell told me I can use the new USB-2 ports? Also, I have windows XP, and the Canon manual says something about installing drivers manually after loading the software and it must be done by logging in as an administrator to XP. Is this necessary or will icon appear when I hook up firewire? Please let me know how to get started so I can begin downloading footage and editing.
Thank you.

You need a 4-pin to 6-pin firewire cable. The procedure is explained in more detail in your manual.
