Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV260 Digital Camcorder

Getting video onto computer

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! :)

    Confused. I have a usb cord, that fits into the usb port on my computer. So I have to find a differnet wire? if so, then i don't have the port on my computer.

  • vedevold Sep 13, 2008

    I don't know how to find that out.

  • vedevold Sep 14, 2008

    No, it has the letters DV above it, and the USB symbol below it.

  • vedevold Sep 15, 2008

    So I have this other cord that has the four pin spots. but I can not connect it to my computer.



    So frustrated!! I am ready to trash this camera!!

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 camcorder has a firewire cable port.  Thats what I-link is.  You will have to get a USB interface for your computer to get it to work.

    Drivers aren't needed for Vista but you will need a new program  Pinnacle Studio 12 will work with your camcorder.  It is available at pinnaclesys.com.

    You need a usb cable with a 4 pin D shaped and on it.  They are available at most computer stores.

    Can you show me a picture of the cord that you are using.


    I'll look up the model number on line to see if I can find the manual for it.

Sony model camcorder DCR-HC40E


well if you were to burn them via windows vista, I'm sure you could do that directly from your computer, if not I'd just talk to a real person (custumer service line, a shop etc.)

Trying to download mini dv tape onto video


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-link malfunction


That software doesn't work with Vista anymore.

Your going to have to purchase a program such as Pinnacle Studio to do the job:

That will work with Vista as well as your firewire (I-link) connection.

Burning video from Sony Handycam DCR-DVD105?


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

Downloading Video


Hi,

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.

Can anyone help please?

Macromedia flash player and sony dcr-hc19e


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!

Sony HC90 and Picture Package software


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.
