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:

Unable to export video from camcorder to PC


Get a 4-pin Firewire cable. Plugs in just below power plug slot. What plug you need on the other end depends on your computer. You can get Firewires in 4 to 4 pin; 4 to 6 pin, and 4 pin to USB. My laptop is configured to take a 4 or 6 pin Firewire but my desktop only has USB. I transfered using 4 to 4 pin and it worked great. No drivers, no discs needed...at least with Vista. As soon as I plugged in the camera, I was asked to whether I wanted to transfer from biginning of tape or at currenty location. I chose from the beginning and the camera automatically rewound and strated to transfer to the PC. I don't know if it would work same way with 4-wire Firewire to USB but assume it would. Cables around $35 but I purchased at Circuit City for the going out of business discount. I also bought some SD cards so I can take snapshots and transfer them too for print.

Get a firewire and you should be fine.

Unable to tansfer video to computer using DV cable..


Pinnacle software will recognize the camera installed through a firewire cable once the camera is turned on. Windows movies software doesn't recognize DV cameras. You may be able to get capture to work if you go to Microsoft.com and download the Windows Media 9.0 Development Kit. I believe DV input is a capture option.

There has to be a 3rd party program installed to get it to recognize it.

Good luck on that.
