How do I get my computer (using Windows XP) to recognize my Canon Z85 camcorder? I want to record from the camcorder to a dvd (my computer has a dvd burner). Is that possible? Please help me in plain, simple English - I am not very computer literate. Thank you so much!
There should be a cable included in with the camera when you bought it, either firewire or USB. With a camcorder, its better to get firewire (aka IEEE 1394). This one transfers faster. This one is for hooking it to the computer. They should have also included a CD with the necessary drivers and software for editing and whatever else. If this wasnt included, the manufacturer should have it available for sale.
