    given that, my only other solution would be to make your connections as clean as possible, with high quality wires. good luck, John

Plz tell me how to download a latest video editing software for my sony handycam


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.

As for the video editing software
You can use Sonys movie studio http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/moviestudiohd
Or
Windows Movie Maker - The best video editing tool for Windows that's free and chances are you already have it installed on your computer as part of XP SP2. Microsoft Movie Maker has all the basic video editing tools plus a good collection of transitions and video effects.

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.

I have sony trv33 and windows 7 using firewire 1394 port and cable computer does not recognise camcorder when turned on


Hi,
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.

Trying to transfer video from Sony Dig 8 to PC


Hi,
Videos cant be held on memory stick. They are of huge size to fit into memory sticks.

Check if camera 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.


4 pin firewire would look like this:

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

How to convert mini dv into cd. Does it require data cable or some special software to do so.


smartjanivj,

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.

Hope this helps :)
