I found an old digital video camera ( Canon ZR500) together with its' power cable and ieee1394 cable. When I charged it & then opened it, I found a tape in it. It is a small DV tape. The video goes back about six years and I would like to copy it to my computer.
The pc I have that has a IEEE1394 card in it is an old Dell4550 desktop running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2.
When I plugged the cable into the card, the message on the screen said it was looking for Pinnacle which is no longer on the machine or anywhere to be found.
Is there freeware software that I can download that will copy the tape onto my harddrive?
