Physically, there is only one way to connect the Sony Handycam to your computer via the USB port
All you have to do is connect the cable, turn on the camcorder, and switch it to "Memory" or "Playback" mode (depending on the specific camcorder). Windows Vista or xp will automatically detect the camcorder and install the correct driver.

I cant transfer my videos from sony handycam dcrhc36 to my computer os window 7 evenafter downloading pmb from sony sitemy computer is not detecting the handycam


You don't say what type of connection you are trying to use. This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. The way it works on my computer, the camera is controlled by the computer software through the Firewire cable. Confusingly, Sony call Firewire "i.Link".

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card. If you have a MAC, you may already have a port.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other. My camera came with the correct lead.

I can't copy from sony handycam mini DV to my computer. it is like the usb cable is not registering as an import option, even though i did the hardware installation


Check the connections. The plugs should be fully inserted in the handycam or its stand. If you are using the stand, then the camera should fit properly on it and the USB streaming switch should be at ON position.

If these are OK, then check the USB cable.

Probably you are aware that you have to use a USB 2.0 port in the PC. If your PC is old and has lower USB ports, then the picture will freeze many times and the import will not be of acceptable quality.

I am having a sony hi 8 ccd trv 58 model handycam. i want a driver to transfer my videos to my personal computer. any free drivers available?


CCD-TRV58 is analog camcorder and can not be connected with computer directly as camcorder does not have USB or iLink/ DV ports.
Computer needs digital format movie data to store / edit files.
You need to hook camcorder audio-video out to DVD recorder and burn DVD of camcorder movie so you will get digital format of movie. Put that DVD in computer and copy files for further process.

DCR-TRV350 Sony Handycam won't load pictures to Vista


You need to purchase a video editing software program. If you have a usb or dv port on your computer you will need a firewire card on your computer or a spare usb port.

Pinnacle Studio will work with Vista. Once the software is installed and the camera is tuned on, A dialog box will appear asking to run Pinnacle Studio. Go into capture mode to copy the video to your hard drive.
