I have just made the first film with my canon ZR830 and I want to show the film on my laptop. I have the USB cable hooked up per the instructions, but my laptop doesn't seem to be recognizing it. Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 2200 (about three years old) and runs Windows XP. I'm pretty new to sharing digital data between devices, so I may be missing something that is simply language based. I can't find in the manual where it refers to transferring data that's on tape. It only refers to transferring data from a memory card. Can I transfer the data from the tape onto a memory card? What are my options for showing this film on my Toshiba plasma screen? My TV only has ports for the red and white cables, non for the yellow...can someone set me straight?
Ultimately, I want to show it on the TV, went to the laptop as plan B. Thank you very much for your input, Digital Newbie (Kim Marie)
