How to connect the GL2 to the computer with a USB cable.


You can download still images from a memory card to a PC connected to the camcorder via the USB interface. By using the supplied software, you can organize, store and print out still images.

When printing still images, you can add titles and frames to them. Use the USB cable and the Canon Digital Video Solution Disk software supplied with the camcorder.

  1. Connect the USB cable from the port on the camera to a USB port on the computer.

    • Refer also to your PC manual.

  2. "PC CONNECT [USB]" appears to indicate that the camcorder is connected to the PC with an USB cable.


  • Do not disconnect the USB cable while data is being transferred (while the camcorder' s card access indicator is flashing). Doing so may damage the data on the memory.

  • The connection may not work properly depending on the specifications and settings of the software and PC.

  • The image files on your memory card and the image files you have stored (downloaded) to the hard disk drive of your computer are your valuable, original image files. If you wish to use image files on your computer, be sure to make copies of them first, and use the copied file, retaining the original.


  • While performing USB connection: the buttons, excluding the POWER switch and TAPE/CARD switch on the camcorder cannot be used.
