First off thanks for choosing fixya.com
Since not all cables are made the same way it would be best to check the manual, or online documentation for your camera. The manufacturer probably makes a cable specifically for that camera. If the camera has a removable card such as SD or MMC you can purchase a generic card reader for your computer and simple transfer data using the card reader, In some cases this is cheaper due to the high cost of some USB/Firewire cables. Only use cables recommended by the manufacturer. This will not only ensure your warranty stays in tact but also makes sure you do not damage your camera or computer by using a wrong cable.

Hope this helps you.

Jei.

I'm not able to install drivers for my sony mini DV DCR-TRV22E handycam on mac os.


Hi,

The DCR-TRV22E Camcorder can be connected to the Macintosh Computer with the i.LINK (Firewire) cable. The Software supplied with the Camcorder is not compatible with the Macintosh Computer. Instead you've to use the Firewire cable for connecting the Camcorder to the Computer. You can use the iMovie Software for transferring the videos. You do not require any drivers from Sony, to transfer the video via i.LINK.
You require to purchase either a 4 - pin to 4 - pin or a 4 - pin to 6 - pin i.LINK / Firewire cable depending on the number of pins on the i.LINK / Firewire port of your computer (since Camcorder will have only 4PIN i-LINK, while the Computer may have a 4PIN or 6 PIN i.LINK port).

Thanks for using FixYa.
We wish you a happy Christmas and NewYear!!

PC with Windows XP will not recognize DCR-HC96 Handycam, and I don't have the software disk that came with the camera. Help


Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

As you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

As you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.

An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The i.LINK cable is an optional accessory for the Camcorder. You require to purchase either a 4 - pin to 4 - pin or a 4 - pin to 6 - pin i.LINK / Firewire cable depending on the number of pins on the i.LINK / Firewire port of your Computer (since Camcorder will have only 4PIN i-LINK, while the Computer may have a 4PIN or 6 PIN i.LINK port).

You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

My sony camcorder DCR TRV19cannot be detected on my vista computer


The videos from the tape camcorders cannot be transferred to Windows Vista Operating System as there is no USB Streaming ooption available on the Windows Vista Operating System.
The Camcorder uses the USB Streaming function to transfer the videos to the Computer.

You may wish to purchase a i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer in order to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.

The i.LINK cable is a D shaped port labeled as i, DV, IEEE1394. Please refer to your Computer manual to check whether there is an i.LINK port on the Computer.

Sony Camcorders contains 4-pin i.LINK port on it.
If your Computer has a 4-pin i.LINK port, then you can use a 4-pin to 4-pin i.LINK cable to connect the Camcorder to the Vista Computer.

If you're Computer has a 6-pin i.LINK port on it, then you can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.

Driver for DCR-HC28


It's not possible to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Vista running Computer using a USB connection.
The Camcorder uses the USB STREAMING function to transfer the videos to the Computer. The Vista doesn't support the USB STREAMING function.
However, you may transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using an i.LINK/FIREWIRE cable.

If your Computer has an i.LINK/FIREWIRE port on it you can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/FIREWIRE cable.

The i.LINK port is a D shaped port labelled as DV, i, IEEE1394, Firewire.

If the i.LINK port on the Computer has 4 pins on it, then you can use a 4-pin to 4-pin i.LINK cable.
If the i.LINK port on the Computer has 6 pins on it, then you can use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
The i.LINK port on the Sony Camcorder is a 4-pin i.LINK port.

I will forward a link to a page where you can get the steps to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK connection.
