Control Cord Canon

Control Cord Canon
The computer does not recognize the camcorder. Please help!?

I have a Canon Optura 30 and I'm trying to connect so you can capture video Windows Movie Maker. I have a 4 to 4-pin FireWire cable, which fits correctly in the computer and camcorder. When the Video Camera connected to your computer (And put in VCR (playback) mode), "DV" keeps flashing on the small screen on the camcorder. The camcorder is not recognized in My Computer, Windows Movie Maker, or the control panel scanners and cameras. What I can do? I'm really frustrated, I've been trying to get it to work all day. Any help is appreciated. Note: When connected with USB cable, it worked perfectly, but USB is to do things in the memory card, but I need the tape.

firewire cable, <probably broke. Get another one from Radio Shack. Or get a USB expansion card and use it in the USB cable, the extra memory card for. 🙂
