Question about Samsung SC-D27 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I was having difficulty imprting the DV footage from the camcorder to my PC. I had used a Macintosh in the past to import and had no issues. I am using a 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable to my Gateway laptop. When using to editing programs, neither would recognized the camcorder being connected. I tried Nero Vision and a program called "Video DVD Maker" that has an DV import function as well. Am I missing something on the PC side to "turn on" or install? I thought a driver would not be needed but I am unsure. Any ideas/help wouldbe appreciated!

second my problem to many USB conected so virtual memory problem :):). . I used program PowerDVD after that no more problem and im hapy i hope you will try. CIAO

you may want to try to use firewire cable(if your pc does have port for this)
you can use ulead,roxio,nero or any other 3rd party burning programs

Unfortunately dv or also called mini firewire is a firewire cable. There is no mini to USB cable out there. On the other hand it is very inexpensive to add a firewire card to your computer if you have any available expansion ports. here's an example on Amazon but you can find them much cheaper if you look around;

OK there are NO cables as such for that PC, as of normal, to get Video into this machine you will have to use either, a USB TV/Video card, and use the AV inputs. OR put a Video TV/Video Capture card into a PCI slot, and again use the AV inputs to connect via. The you will have to use the AV leads Yellow, Red & White, OR the SVHS port if available. You will also need software to record the video stream, If you camera has FireWire then you could install a FireWire Card into a PCI slot and hook you via that, you will still have to use software though. Sometimes the camera, has proprietary software to edit and work with the Video from the camera, usually via FireWire. To get said software go to the manufacturers web site, and download a copy.

This is a Firewire cable, also known as DV or IEEE 1394. Sony call it i.Link. It is not compatible with USB and you cannot get a lead to connect it to a USB port. There are converter/adapters that are supposed to allow Firewire to connect to USB but many forum posts say they do NOT work for video transfer. Unfortunately, most Mini-DV cameras will not transfer video by USB cable, even when they have a USB connection (it is usually only used for still pictures).
Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you had a desktop PC, you could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to the expansion bus. This will come with a driver for the card.
I have a Samsung Mini-DV, and do transfers with it to the one computer I have that has a Firewire port. It is the only thing I use that computer for, and the reason I haven't thrown it out.
