    Ok a mate mine has one of these camcorders. I can't connect it to the pc with USb, im trying to install the drivers & it not showing up in device manager.

    This is on windows xp ive gone through the manual. It only detects it when you turn the pc on with camcorder is on & then turn off the camcorder!!

    I searched on the net it's seem other people have problems with this camera, anyone slove this problem ?

    Why are you trying to connect by USB - do you have some stills you wish to transfer. If you are trying to transfer video you MUST use a FIREWIRE cable and card - you do not need drivers for that on XP

    Note to the Mods,
    How about setting up a function that new members have a mandatory view of FAQs, before being allowed to post? :devil:

    You don't need drivers on windows XP for a firewire card.

    To be able to use the USB connection for transfer of still images you will need to uninstall the camcorder from XP. Connecting via USB will cause XP to use its own drivers, and these need to be removed. Once that has been done install the USB drivers from the CD and then (and only then!!!!) connect the camcorder to PC via USB. The PC will detect the new hardware and use the new drivers you have installed off the CD. It should now work!
    As has already been mentioned to get the video onto the PC you will need a firewire (aka iLink, ieee1395, DV port) port on the PC. On a modern PC this may well be on the motherboard, but on an older PC you can add a PCI firewire card for around £10 that should also include the 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable. If you already have firewire port or the cable is not included then you can also buy these for under £10. Once the card is installed you can just boot the PC and the card will be detected and installed by XP. No drivers should be added by you for this. Then you can connect the cam to PC and capture the footage.

    Mark.

    Is the camera switched on and in the 'VCR' or 'Playback' mode (or whatever the mode is called which allows you to play your video direct to your TV)

    Check in Device manager and see if there are any errors reported for the firewire card.
