Vixia HF R62 - transferring to laptop VERY slow



I have a new laptop (HP Spectre, Windows 10) that only has a MICRO SD slot.


My camcorder, Vixia HF R62, currently has an SD card. According to the manual, I can only use SD cards. (It doesn't say it explicitly but it implies / and my first attempt shows that a MICRO SD card and adapter does not work).


So, it seems my options are 1) to transfer using a cord from camcorder to usb. 2) get an sd / usb adapter and use that.


Right now, I'm doing option 1 and it seems EXTREMELY slow.


This is a new laptop so is pretty stripped of software right now. Is there specific Canon/driver software that would speed this up? (let's face it, if software would fix it, i wouldn't care about a potential second option, above).


Thanks, in advance!

You download Transfer Utility LE  from website and use USB cable for transfer of video


If you have HDMI cable try if this work in Transfer Utility LE


Other method is wifi transfer to your laptop computer.
