Question about Sony DCR-HC30E MiniDV Camcorder

UNABLE TO DETECT VIDEO CAMERA

Dear Sir,
When I try to detect the video camera, I get this message:
"Unable to detect video camera.
Please confirm that your
Video camera is connected
under USB Streaming Mode.
For more details, please read
the User’s Manual."
I don't have the user's manual. So please instruct me as to what I should do. Thank you most sincere in advance.

    I have a SONY DCR-PC120E PAL, I can't get the video image off the camera onto my HP Compaq nx6120.

    I went to a site that informed me that I needed to downlod a driver for my SONY and I was then lured to another site and paid $30 USD which has up-dated my drivers and has done a cookie scan, but has not given me access to uad my video from my SONY to my HP laptop.

    tried using a USB cable that came with the to no avail.

    Short of having the feeling of wanting to throw the whole lot of a ten story building, I am left right back where I started from, and $30 USD poorer.



    Does any one have a suggestion?



    Any help would be most appreciated, kind regards - Peter - Melbourne, Australia, April 2009.

Hi,
You need to use firewire cable. USB wont work.

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:

Mionet unable to detect Lifecam 7000


A camera icon will show up at the bottom of your My Resources in MioNet. If the camera does not appear, then a manual scan is required. To scan for a new camera, go to the MioNet application, select File, then click "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" MioNet will report any changes in the computer configuration.

If the camera isn't detected and an icon is not available, then there may be two devices interfering with a scan:

1. Built-in webcam: MioNet does not support built-in webcams. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the onboard webcam can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

2. TV tuner card: MioNet also does not support TV tuner cards. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the TV tuner card can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

3. If the camera is being used by another program, MioNet will not be able to detect it. Please confirm no other program, including the camera view in Windows control panel, is not using the camera.
