Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Sony HC90 and Picture Package software

I have shot my first video, and have downloaded the Picture Package software on my computer; however, the software only seems to want to search the memory stick via the USB link. Consequently, I can't download/transfer my video from the MiniDV tape to my commputer hard drive, because the software doesn't seem to want to acknowledge the MiniDV tape. What am I doing wrong? I can play the video through the audio/video cables on the television, and I can see it play on the HC90 LCD screen. So I know I have captured the video, I just can't get it to my computer. FWIW, I have a Dell Latitude D600 laptop, with Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 1, Intel Pentium M processor 1300MHz, if that helps.

The software is picture software. You need to use firewire to transfer video to computer.

Ask "What is this Picture Package software?" And what does it do? Here's the gimme that you don't move video with this product: " Is Picture Package compatible with USB2.0? It is only compatible with USB1.1 not 2.0." From the Sony site. Look to other software and move to a Firewire connection.

How do i transfer the data from the camera to the computer


First, make sure you are using Windows XP, Vista, or Windows7. Drivers fro the camera are included with your operating system.

Next thing to do is to install the Picture Package software on your computer. If you do not have the CD, you can download it from:

Select your operating system from the drop-down menu.


Next, go to

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DCRTRV280

Download the Operation manual from the link provided. Save this to your computer for future use. Using the Picture Package software instructions begin on page 71.

Also note on the left side there is a link to Tutorials. When you click this there is a selection for using the Picture Package software.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya.
