Hi,

Bought a Canon ZR45MC Digital Camcorder which comes with a DV/IEEE 1394 port which can output Digital Video.  The PC software software though is not included in the CD.  Do you know of a software [preferrably downloadable] that I can install on Win XP to receive the DV, save to disk and play ?  My Dell Inspiron 8100 comes with 1394 port.  Thanks.

I find it hard to believe that a digital camera from Canon would not come with something to enable downloads.
I would double check the CD.

Also search google for
Free Digital editing programs.

I hope this helps !

Sysexpert,

They did give us a software --- for downloading the still images.  This is a camcorder that records DV into a tape, and stills into a compaflash card.  I did not know that the software will be for stills only, not the DV.  Well, Live and learn.

That still sounds very strange.

Check the Canon site and see what is supposed to be included with the package, or look for a revire of your camera ( cnet.com, zdnet.com etc ).

I hope this helps !

Ahh...WinXP includes the Windows Movie Maker (or something to that effect) that should let you import video from miniDV automatically.  Its no Adobe Premiere, but it will do the job to copy the family videos onto the PC.

Did you try XP's built-in DV support?
