Hi, You need not download any program. You can use Windows Movie Maker which comes with the Windows operating system.
Connect you cam to the Computer using Firewire cable (not USB cable). Switch it on.
Open Movie maker. Goto> Start> Programs> Accesorries> Entertainment> Movie Maker
On left click on Capture Video from device.
Rest are self explanatory.

I hope you are using windows ...

Camcorder on Computer


The USB cable is to download still images only. To download video, you need (1) a firewire cable, (2) a firewire port on the computer, and (3) a video editing software program used to download and edit the video.

Completly confused


You need a video recorder program. The SC-D23 is a MiniDV tape camcorder, not a hard drive based camcorder. So you can't just drag-and-drop, it doesn't show up as a drive.

And you must use the Firewire cable. The USB connection is only good for transferring from the memory card.

Windows Movie Maker is free and can transfer from a Firewire drive like this one. If you don't have it already, download WMM from Microsoft's website. The Help files should tell you all you need to know, if you need to know more about using WMM you can come back here and post in the appropriate area.

Whatever video recording program you use, it will run the camcorder as if it were a VCR that you were recording from.

BTW, it is very important that the camcorder be turned OFF when you plug in the Firewire cables. Turn it on only AFTER it is connected to the computer. Otherwise you may destroy the Firewire port on the camcorder.

My dxg-572v camcorder only plays the audio and no video on the laptop. however, when iplayback in th ecamera i see the video


The reason you can see the video on the camera but not on the computer is a simple fix. Whatever program your trying to play the video on needs an update to its drivers. Go to either your internet home page or any search engine and type "AVI CODEC DOWNLOAD" then the name of the program your trying to play the video with. Example; "avi codec download windows media player" and you should see options pop up (if it is Windows Media Player i recommend using the download from Microsoft.com but you get the idea). then download, install, and then just try to play it again and it should work fine. :)

Drivers,,controladores...


Drivers are already preloaded for your camcorder as long as you are using Windows XP or Vista. You will need a program to capture the video to your computer. Pinnacle Studio will work for your camcorder.

Once the firewire cable is installed and the camcorder is turned on, pinnacle studio will give you the option to load itself up.
