Hi there
based on your camcorder model number it is digital 8 based, so assuming you are using digital 8 tapes you will need a firewire lead (£5) ish. you will also need a firewire input on your p.c. if you havn't got one you can get a card for about £10 and fit it yourself. its not hard, honest !
if you are using ordinary 8mm tapes you will need an anologue video card, bit more expensive but easy to fit. video editing software will be needed, try pinnacle studio version 7/8/9/ on e bay, should be less than £20.

hope this helps

Use a firewire cab le to connect to the computer. Then open Windows Movie Maker to capture. With Digital-8 you may have to start the camera manually. eg. push the play button on the camera

I cant download my DCR-TRV250 Digital 8 videos to my computer. I tryed on Win 7 and Win XP, with or without Sony drivers... But no computers recognize my cam. Also I looked for help on Sony eSupport, but...


From the Sony support page for this camera, it has the following:
  • Drivers:
    • The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
  • Not Supported:
    • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
    • The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.

Can not locate the driver for the sonyL15a digital handycam dv


General Information:
I understand that you're trying to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB Cable.

The USB Streaming of this Camcorder is not compatible with the Vista and Windows 7 Operating Systems.

However, you can transfer the videos to the Computer using the i.LINK(Firewire) cable or A/V Cable.

Download moving images to computer for duplication to dvd.


You will need to have a firewire cable at the very least. Then if you have a more Windows XP (or higher) PC equipped with an ieee1394 hardware or an apple computer ... you're all set to capture video from PC9 to other format like youtube or DVD.
