I successfully downloaded the upgraded free softwear package from the Sony site in order to burn DVDs from tape from my older model DCR-TRV260 Handycam, I think. I also downloaded a WinDV program. I have a USB cord, I believe. What is an I-link cable? I am not getting anything on my computer. I am not sure how i can get it into my dvd burner on my computer. I do NOT have vista. please help! :)

Re: getting video onto computer
An I link cable is a firewire cable. If your computer doesn't have a USB port on it you will have to get a Firewire cable with a small connector on one end and the standard connector on the other side.

You can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using A/V interface to transfer the recordings to Computer.
Once you transfer the recordings from tape to computer, you can use any burning software to burn the recordings to DVDs.
In order to capture the analog videos, you can use the Windows Movie Maker available in the Computer.

for to import from the Sony handy-cam you need a firewire cable ..not a rca..this one will only help you see the video on a tv ...but you will not be able to import them into computer ... just ask at the store..and take the camera with you .. another thing the camera may support even a usb cable that may be available in the box that it came with (infact the iLink cable should be there too ) so ..this is a link to a video I use to explain in detail the procedure to import fom minitape of sony handycam. .http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876 after have them into the windows movie maker..just drag them to the story board..(join them if you need) ..and save them by finishing movie...and save to computer ..in best for computer mode...after that just burn them to **** ..using Nero ..or if they are small enough to get into a cd ...use window feature for burning ..
i dont think that you can keep the menus from each mini dvd. but you can create your own dvd video with menu and at the same time you can merge all of your mini dvds. After you upload the mini dvd videos to your computer then use Nero 8 or 9 Software. On Nero look for dvd editable and browse your dvd videos then do as the instructions says to you. you should burn that with one DVD disc with menus of your own choice
In order to burn a DVD you need to use the 1394 interface. If you use the USB interface then you have the option to only burn VCD. However, i could not even burn the VCD using the USB interface. It refuses to recognize that there is a new CD-R in the PC.
Have found the solution to the problem. If you cannot access Picture Package because it says Macromedia Flash needs to be downloaded, and you have already downloaded Flash successfully then the problem is with Picture Package, and it needs to be updated. Go to http://www.ppackage.com/e/index.html and download the most recent update for your version of Picture Package. This solved the problem for me and hopefully will do the same for you!
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.
