Hi everyone, I am new with Vixia HF R80 - and camcorders in general. I am trying to download my movies from my Vixia. I am connected to my laptop with usb cable supplied by canon. I do not use a hub port, i am connected to the main power. When I turn on camera my Windows 7 laptop tells me it is downloading device driver ... then says it can not. Then I see a window that asks me how I want to download my files - by Windows or by Camera Window? When I choose Windows it tells me there's an error on each file and they didn't download. So I try Camera Window and receive an error that says "Camera Window Cannot Detect Camera". Please help! I have slogged my way through with this camera for days and am so excited to see my first take!
