Trying to connect to pc, (via rca connectors) and with Windows movie maker download video. get very erratic results. When connected get interference on screen like something blowing on the lens. However if you look thru the viewfinder all looks ok. I'm using XP Pro, on a HP Pavillion Media Center, also Windows Movie Maker ver 2.1.4

Losing your Handycam software is the best thing that could have happened to you all. It stinks. Firewire eliminates the need for the crummy camcorder software. Basically, you need to install, or have installed, a Firewire card in your PC, then buy a Firewire cable. Then WinDV software will work perfectly to import video. USB connections, and the USB cable, are ideal for downloading digital still images from cameras. Running footage requires a very large bandwidth, which basically is the throughput from camera to computer. Think of a funnel with a small opening. The small opening is USB. Make the opening 4 times as large and nothing backs up in the funnel. The large opening is Firewire. Anyways, by using a Firewire connection, you can bypass the camcorder software and use "real" video editing software.
There's an in-built movie titler that lets add you styles to text titles including ticker taps, zoom and even the scroll effect. And if you are feeling lazy, just hit the AutoMovie command to have the entire video produced for you with intervention.
your sony ccd-trv 108 will transfer videos(stream) to a computer using firewire connection. install the supplied software or use any program compatible for streaming like windows movie maker. use a firewire cable. check your computer for a firewire port(port with IEEE symbol) make sure that the tape is totally rewounded then press the record button on windows movie maker as the same time as you play the video from the camcorder. (its basically playing the entire video in order for windows movie maker to record it.
Your camera will not be recognized when you connect it via firewire. To transfer the video from your camera to your computer you will need a video editing program that is able to capture video from camcorders connected via firewire.
You can try Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7. Alternatively your can search through the internet to find a more advanced video editing software.
The USB drive for Sony CAM you can download from Sony web but the USB will not allow you to transfer video from your CAM only for memory stick
However if you have firewire input on your Laptop, have you? normaly if you have firewire input on your laptop as soon as you connect your CAM it will detect automatic either with windown movies maker or with Nero
Sometime the firewire from CAM defect I repaired a few of them with this problem
Can you conect this CAM to another computer or try different cable ?
Or tell me exactly what input you have on your laptop such firewire input, PCMCIA slot
i have an idea for that. try to use windows xp OS and download the driver that ill provide for you. after you download install it to your pc and plug your device i hope it recognize. if does, upload your video then use any movie maker such as ulead movie maker, nero movie maker, windows movie maker etc.. and save it as any video types that you like such as avi, divx, dvd, vcd, ect.. now you have your videos on your computer. hope that helps!
This depends on what kind of CD you wish to make. If you simply wish to put the videos on the CD as data to be viewed later on another computer, you can transfer the video into windows movie maker (most PC's come with this free program) with File > Import video from Digital Video Camera, and then your movie can be saved via File > Publish Movie. Select "This Computer" and click Next. Select a name for your movie and the directory in which you want to save the file and click Next. Then adjust any final settings and click Publish. Then you can burn that file onto a CD.
However if you wish to make a DVD, follow the same steps as above but instead of selecting "This Computer", select "DVD". NOTE This step only works if you also have Windows DVD Maker installed.
Both Windows Movie Maker and Windows DVD maker can be downloaded for free off the internet, if they are not already on your computer.
