Plug & Burn Doesn't Recognize Camcorder

Question

Just installed EMC 10 and I am able to capture video and edit it with Videowave but when I try to use the Plug & Burn feature, my Canon HV20 does not show up in the drop-down. Is there a setting that I missed? Thanks.

Plug n Burn should only work with HV20 when you record in standard definition. I don't think it supports HDV in that mode.

How do you like that camcorder? I'm looking at the HV-30 and would like to get real feedback on the HV 20/30 product line.

I thought that might be the case too but Plug & Burn doesn't recognize my Canon HV20 even if I have a non-HD recording. It's strange that the Capture Video feature sees my camcorder w/no problem but Plug & Burn can't.

Actually, it's a very nice camcorder. The high-def is quite remarkable. Going from my previous camcorder to this is like watching VHS vs Blu-ray.

I'm not familiar with the Canon HV30, but I had the Sony HC7 which is also HDV. I had to MANUALLY set teh camcorder to standard definition for it to work. Yes, teh camcorder could automatically sense the tape, but always defaulted to HD which Plug n Burn will not recognize.

 

What worked for me with the Sony:

Manually set the camcorder to SD

Make sure it was in VCR/Playback mode

Plugin the FIREWIRE (not USB) to camcorder and computer

WAIT for Windows to recognize the camcorder. You should see a little camcoder in the systray.

Then launch MyDVD and run Plug n Burn.

It actually doesn't recognize the camcorder even when I have a regular tape in. Strange.

More than welcome. Glad you let us know it worked.

 

The Sony had a feature where it could automatically down convert HD to SD through firewire. I never tested that feature though. I believe that also was a manual setting.
