Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
I have just uploaded into my new computer the Sony software so that I can transfer my tapes to a DVD. I'm following the instructions exactly as the booklet indicates. It asks me to insert into the DVD/CD burner drive a CD-R disc. I do that, but it keeps telling me to insert a disc. Why is it not recognizing that the disc is in and that everything is ready for the burning process? I have over 30 tapes that I want to convert into digital but I can't do it because of this problem. Any suggestions please?
A couple of quick observations: -If you have two or more optical drives you could be inserting the disk in the wrong one. -You may have just misspoke when you said *insert into the DVD/CD burner drive a CD-R disc* but just to make sure you need to be inserting a blank DVD disk and not a blank CD. No offence intended, especially since I?ve made both of these mistakes in the past myself :)

Tips for a great answer:
The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available
for Windows Vista OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer
videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer
videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows Vista Operating System.
follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection
IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.
NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.
NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards
may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK
ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will
be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
It should now be possible to copy the video using
the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured
You can also use Windows movie maker with i.LINK connection
