Sony TRV460 recording to DVD using USB

From reviewing other posts and from the comments of jcrobso (and his web site) and kiddpeat, I assume I can't record from analog tapes in my Sony DCR-TRV460 directly to DVD without buying a firewire card and a firewire cable. I bought the camera for this very reason and my DVD burner is on my laptop (Win XP Pro). Being a novice at this, I don't think I can install a firewire card in a laptop, right? My desktop PC (Win 98 SE) only has a CD burner and no firewire card. I have Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 and Sonic RecordNow! on my laptop (which I also purchased to create DVD's from my analog home movies), but neither of them recognize my camera when I have it plugged in using the small USB outlet (marked DV) on my camera and the regular USB outlet on my laptop and the camera is currently playing in Play/Edit mode. I have even tried selecting the A/V->DV mode in the camera menu to no avail. There is another outlet on my camera marked A/V that a guy at Office Depot told me was the firewire outlet. But again, I don't have the firewire input spot on my laptop. Any suggestions?

That is an enclosure for an internal hard drive. You use that to make the internal drive- external. You need a firewire card adapter. Check circuit city or best buy. Do a search for "firewire card for laptop" You should be able to figure it out.

You're going to have to use firewire.

Sony have a page offering information and support, including downloads (Picture Motion Browser) for this camera at THIS LINK

This type of camera transfers video to computer with a Firewire (Sony call this i.Link) connection. Some mini-DV and D8 cameras have a USB connection which is used for stills ONLY. There is a tutorial for downloading videos to computer linked from the above site.

Finalize DVD


Some Camcorders need you to plug the charger to enable you to finalize it. This is to avoid your disc or data be destroyed or corrupted should your camcorder ran out of battery.

Camera will not record


Contact Sony at 1-800-222-7669.  Mine was doing the same thing and it is a weak link in the DCR-TRV460 and DCR-TRV260.  They are sending me a shipping label and say they will fix it for free.
