I'm trying to move video files to my pc using one of the USB RCA devices off Amazon. I had a ZR10 when recording the video back many years ago, how ever the eject decided to not work. I went and purchased a working device off of Ebay and for the life of me cannot figure out why I can't get the video to show up on my PC screen. I get audio which is horrible, but the video isn't showing at all.
I do have both in perfect condition on the camcorder itself. Is there a button on the remote I have to press to get video to play out? Should I try the S-Video cable instead of RCA?
Would appreciate any support.

Had so much fun with these little cameras. I think I had a ZR50.
MIni DV to Firewire is the best method for audio/video transfer. You have to have a desktop with a PCIe slot to use a firewire card.
This is a good one for about $18. Fits full size or half-height slot and comes with the correct cable:
RCA or S-video to USB capture cards can work, but they are more hit or miss. The firewire solution is a sure thing. Solid and reliable.
If you're serious, I recommend firewire.
