Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

How do I find my camcorder on my computer?

Hello, I am a low tech nursing student just trying to figure out how to download the video of my daughters lead performance in the school play so I can make copies on CD to send to family. I have a Sony DCR-TRV 330 camera and the cable that connects it to a USB port on my computer. I have Power DVD software that came loaded on my eMachine and use WIndows XP Home Edition OS. I have figured out how to get the AV-DV OUT turned on the camera, and have found the button on the DVD software that asks for the source. However, I can't find the camcorder even though it is plugged into the D drive USB slot. Wouldn't it be considered a portable media device? I see all the other drives when I look for it, and when I use the same D drive for my digital camera and my jump drive for school work, it shows up. What am I doing wrong?

That's when I try it with a FIREWIRE connection.

I can't figure out how to download video from my JVC GR-D90U Camcorder to my computer through it's usb cable. It is a mini DV camcorder that uses mini video tapes.


From the JVC manual "This camcorder can transfer still images to a PC via USB". There is no mention of video transfer via USB so it seems it is not supported.

I cant figure out how to delete the videos off my camcorder now that I have downloaded them to my computer. I have some on the hard drive and some on the sd card.


Please make sure all video files have been transferred in computer then use Format option to delete all movie files in hard drive of camcorder, apply same procedure to sd card in camcorder.
Format option would be available in settings/ set up menu of camcorder.
Thanks.

Transfer video to computer (sony dcr-trv38)


I had a same issue but now I found one way using the fireware that comes with the DCR-TRV38. I tried on my windows XP service pack 2.
1. hook up the fireware cable both in sony and the computer. If your computer does not have fireware card, you need one.
2. switch the camera button from "off" to "camera"
3. after few seconds you will see new hardware found and will ready for use. you may also see pop up window to capture the video if you have Microsoft Windows Movie Maker (WMM).
4. open the editing s/w and capture the video. I used the WMM which gives many option to capture the video (ie:DV-AVI, high quality format and many more)

hope this helps.

yes, I found the manual downloads on Canon's webpage. I wish I could figure out how to transfer my tape videos to a computer. I bought the $50,00 DV-1394 cord and nothing happens--computer doesn't recognize the camera.

Watching recorded video on computer


What I use is a PCI TV card. Just pipe the video to the analog connection and run it full screen.
