How do I get my IBM ThinkPad R50 to recognize my Canon Mini DV Camcorder ZR200?

Q: I have a Canon Mini DV Camcorder ZR200 and an IBM ThinkPad R50. I want to transfer my pics onto my laptop, but my laptop doesn’t recognize my camera. I was told I needed to download drivers, but I don’t know which ones or where to find them. Could you help me? thank you

    There shouldn’t be any drivers that I am aware of. You should just be able to connect your camera to your computer via USB and your computer should recognize it as an external storage device.

    You can view the Canon website for your product here http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/camcorders/minidv_camcorders/zr200#DriversAndSoftware and you will see they don’t list any drivers either.
