Usually it's inside the access door on the side. It looks kind of like a usb cable connection.

Can you upload the video from the Sony Handycam DCR-TRV11 Mini DV Digital Camcorder to a laptop computer

Yes, there are ways of doing this. Your camcorder has the Sony iLink (Firewire) cable connection and a standard composite video and audio connection. Most laptops today have USB ports and not much else. So the process is not straightforward but it can be done with some extra effort. If you know somebody with a desktop computer that has a Firewire card, you could go directly from camcorder to computer, then copy the video to a USB thumb drive and then insert the thumb drive into the laptop and copy to the video to the laptop.

Another way is to buy a composite video to USB adapter with software. This way you use the RCA cable connection from the camcorder thru the USB connector to the laptop. There are many products like this. Make sure you get one compatible with your operating system.
Look around but here is one:

Install the software and drivers for your system and play tape on the camcorder to create video on the laptop. Many people have problems with this method but it should work if you do some research on the web about the process.

Camcoder Does not connect with Laptop thru USB

First, check to make sure you have (installed) a (device) driver (on your laptop/PC), for your laptop to recognize the camcorder when connected with a USB cable. When you first connect the camcorder to the laptop, the laptop should see a "new" device and attempt to install the driver (on your laptop). If your laptop doesn't locate the driver on your (laptop's) disk, you will need to insert the software CD that came with the camcorder - that's where the driver is provided.

How do I tranfer video from my camcorder to my computer?

Hello there...

There is another way to transfer video from you camcorder if you camcorder support USB streaming. I usually use this method with my Sony Camcorder because more simple and don't need additional hardware.

1) Install you camcorder driver to your PC/laptop.
2) Connect your camcorder to PC/laptop.
3) Open Windows Movie Maker.
4) Create a new project and select source input device to your camcorder.
5) Start record on your Windows Movie Maker application and press play on your camcorder.
6) Wait until camcorder finish playing and press stop in your WMM.
7) Save the file as WMV (later you can convert to another format using any video converter or even burn to CD)

PS: you can even edit the movie frame or add some opening text or end credit.

Hope this helps.... :D

I am trying to connect my camcoder with my laptop using firewire and windows movie maker does not recognize the device

Hi. You have to install the drivers for your camcorder in order to use it with your LapTop

Here are the steps in sequence to install the drivers.

1- Use the CD which came with your Camcorder to install the drivers. If you do not have the CD, Google search for your camcorder drivers download.

2- After installing the drivers, select play, connect your camcorder to your laptop and turn it on. Follow the screen and install the drivers. When it states ready, Your laptop would see your camcorder

Click start, then computer. You would see an icon with all of part of Panasonic PV-Dv910 Mini.... Double click on it, you would see one or more folders with your pictures and videos. Now you can download, copy delete them.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ILink cable and laptop

I would have to consult your manuals.

I think that you are saying you want to connect USB. Nearly all computer ports are the SAME. [USB A]. Devices, on the other hand have maybe 6 connections. A very popular one is like a mini-usb. Look in the manual for what it says it is, take the camcorder with you when you exchange the cable.
