My Sony camera TR517 has an audio/video out cord by no firewire connection on it, what do I need to do to plug it in to my computer. I have a HP Pavilion a1700n? Do I have to have a firewire connection on my camcorder to do it?

I understand that you wish to transfer recordings from the Camcorder to the a computer. Since the CCD TR517 is an analog Camcorder, driver and software from the manufacturer is not required to transfer videos. You can connect the A/V output of the Camcorder to the A/V input on the Computer and use the Windows Movie Maker software available with the Windows Operating System to capture the videos. Please let me know if you require more details about doing that.
Sony have made Digital-8 cameras in the past so aquiring a second hand unit is the most likely option.
You can use an A/D (analogueto digital) Converter to get the video into a PC.
Many mini DV cameras can also act as an A/D Converter if the camera has analogue inputs.
you can do that with EASYCAP usb2, a camcorder video capture card card "

, on ebay from wanghaostore. 10$. works perfectly, useful to digitalize VHS tapes too.
Most likely it will need a zoom switch block assembly if it's located on the top of the unit the part number is 1-418-760-21 and has a list cost of $38.40 Andrews Electronics has these. call : 1-800-289-0300
Hi there. You need to transfer your videos to your computer and then burn them to DVD using a program like Record Now, or Nero. You should be able to get this from Best Buy, or you can get it online from their websites. If you have any other questions, let me know with a comment. Thanks for coming to FixYa.
