How do I transfer vide from my Sony Handycam DCR-HC30E to my Laptop?

Hi Guys,

I have an Acer Laptop (with Firewire capability), to which I would like to transfer video captured using my Sony Handycam DCR-HC30E.

Use a firewire cable to connect the camera to the PC. Open Windows Movie Maker on the PC.
Capture the required footage.

Cant use my sony dcr h30e because i'm using windows vista


Why do you need that **** software from Sony?If you have a firewire port on your computer and a firewire cable you can transfer your footage with Windows Movie Maker.In Movie Maker you can choose the DV-AVI option to preserve the full quality of your footage.Later you can use the DV-AVI in Virtual Dub/After Effects/Premiere for editing or encoding.

Hello, i have a problem with my handycam Sony DCR-HC-30E PAL, when i conect to computer with picture package to make a VCD, the software does not recognize drive to rec vcd. Sorry my English...


Hi, Check if it has the firewire port. If so, you can get a 4 pin firewire cable and connect to the PC and record/ download the videos using Windows Movie Maker.

4 pin firewire would look like this:

You can use the Movie maker to burn it to the Disk

Hi,
You need not have a CD.
Check if the cam has the firewire port. If so, you can get a 4 pin firewire cable and connect to the PC.
Switch on the Cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.
