They cross-referenced it and found that the DCR-TRV19 camera used the same driver as the DCR-TRV280. I took the download off Sonys website and it worked perfectly.

DCR-TRV19 compatible with an apple computer?


Hi heather719,

Unfortunately, the DCR-TRV19 is only compatible with windows - see the list of compatible versions at this address:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=DCRTRV19

The only compatibility it has with Macs (and it doesn't always work) is to view still images via USB cable. In order to do this, you must manually install the required drivers from the software CD on your Mac. See the user's manual for instructions on how to do this:

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRTRV19.pdf

The reason the video playback is not compatible with Macs is that you have to use an iLink cable, which is Sony's version of an IEEE 1394 ("Firewire") cable, and the iLink is only compatible with PCs (since that's what Sony makes).

If you want to get content from the tape in your camera onto a Mac, you must either:
1) Load it onto a PC, save it to a portable memory device, and transfer it, or...
2) Connect a MiniDV deck to your Mac, take the tape out of your camera, and put in the deck (like a VCR).

I'm sorry I can't give you better news - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

Because of the fact that Microsoft thinks they're so smart and released Windows Vista as their newest piece of ****, this camera will not work with Vista. The drivers for Windows Vista are non-existent. I went to the site for Sony and could only find XP drivers and 98 and 2000. They do not make them for Vista. And of course Vista should have most common drivers preinstalled, yet they don't have this one. I haven't found a way around it yet. I tried to get the drivers for Windows XP and install them. No good! It cannot be used on "this current operating system." Good luck. Hope somebody else finds an answer.

Mini dv to apc


I'm working out the same problem! From the looks of things, it can be done with the i.LINK cable (which is optional, of course). I've got Vista on my new computer, which is incompatible with Sony's USB driver anyway, but it looks like I can transfer video successfully using an i.LINK cable and Microsoft® Windows Movie Maker (came with Vista). I just need to find the cable I need, as it's "optional" and didn't come with my camcorder. BTW, here's where I found my info: http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893
