PC won't detect camera via firewire

I've had my Sony TRV22 for a while now and it's worked just fine. I've been able to transfer video over the iLink/Firewire/IEEE 1394 just fine and do the analog passthrough as well. Then, all of a sudden, my PC stopped detecting my camera. I'll plug the camera in, turn the power on (or the opposite way) and it won't detect it. The camera viewfinder in VCR mode shows "DV-IN" but nothing pops up on the PC and my video capture software doesn't show the camera. The Firewire port on the PC is fine because I transferred video from another camera to it without trouble. Any ideas? Could it be that the port on my camcorder went bad? Any settings that might have inadvertantly gotten switched?

The industry is cheating us by not putting up such information on the web sites. I found your answer. You need other software...

SOURCE: Does the Sony DCR-SR47 Camcorder has IEEE 1394

DCR-SR47 does not have IEEE1394/ DV link port, since its HardDiskDrive camera so utilize USB port to transfer movie clips files.

Sony DCR-TRV8 video transfer problems


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
Cheers

a software called Showbiz DVD2 was able to detect my camera and allow me to control the Camera options via the firewire cable to transfer the full video to my hard drive. You can also use a video program like Pinnacle or Roxio Media. Hope this helps you out.

Sony DCR PC105E I-link failure; any advice? (Please!)


Ideas.. 1. Is the camera set the same as before during capture? 2. Does the camera work on another PC or Mac? 3. Look up WinDV on google.com and see if that works. (It's free.)

Sony TRV22 as webcam?


It?s supposed to be very easy. You should connect you camera through the USB port, turn it on, and then you have a new webcam. Maybe the cable or the connection is busted. Daniel

Just below, they noted you don't put a tape in the TRV... Otherwise it outsmarts you.
