Shitty Video Camera.

Recommended Posts

Long story so bear with me. Just before he died my brother in law bought a cheap camcorder, it's a cheap thing out of some backstreet sweatshop in god knows where. My sister recorded some footage of her husband on it and doesnt want to lose the video of him now he's gone. The only problem is they never installed the software on their P.C. and they've lost the bloody disc that came with it, this means I cant get the video of the camera as the memory kind is like none i've seen. Does anybody know where I can get the drivers for a Maxim MX30-7000?(Yeah, I know it's a shit camera but I really need the footage off it.) Thanks for any help guys.

That might be a last resort, buy another one just to get hold of the software disc that comes with it. I dont think he would have bought it if he hadnt been so unwell, he was very vague towards the end.

 

Oh yeah, I spit on Eurovision!!!! :lol:

No luck here either. Did you read that thread that went up in flames?...very funny...they all wanted to meet up for a scrap...

 

I usually put my camcorder through the dvd recorder and record on that rather than the pc...

 

I have 2 sd readers one on the pc & one on the printer...can video go from the printer to the pc then?...

jack you tried connecting the usb to pc yeah and because you had no driver it got no further.

 

you tried using a Sony usb driver as in specify the hardware at driver install and pick from device and manufacturer.

I think I'd follow Volvo's suggestion and spring for one of those cheap readers. :yes:

Would they work tho ? My concern is that the pc doesn't currently recognise the contents of the card, I don't know enough about the readers to guess if they would allow Jack to read off the files :(

A card reader will work, as i see it jack cannot get the usb of the cam to be recognised by PC, the SD card will be readable in card reader or Linux if the worst comes to the worst.

 

Sorry jack ebayer did not respond as of yet anyways.

Thanks guys, I probably will get a card reader. I wanted to get it working on my sisters P.C. so that they could use it if they wanted as well as getting the footage off the card. I will check out the link chris, thanks mate.

 

 

Thanks to all that responded. :thumbup:
