Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV8 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I purchase the TRV8 a number of years ago, I had a PC desktop with an installed video card and I was able to transfer my videos to my PC via a firewire cable. Now, I no longer have the desktop PC or the video card. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with MS XP. I have tried to connect the TRV8 with a USB cable but XP reports it can not find the USB driver. I have also tried to connect the TRV8 via the 4-pin 1394 cable. Still, applications such as Windows Movie Maker or Vegas Movie Studio do not recognize my camera. I can not add a specific video card for video transfer and editing, my laptop does not recognize my TRV8 is connected by any cable, I can not find any drivers so I am wondering what my options are for video transfer. Is there a solution out there for me? Thanks in advance for your attention to this issue.
The USB drive for Sony CAM you can download from Sony web but the USB will not allow you to transfer video from your CAM only for memory stick
However if you have firewire input on your Laptop, have you? normaly if you have firewire input on your laptop as soon as you connect your CAM it will detect automatic either with windown movies maker or with Nero
Sometime the firewire from CAM defect I repaired a few of them with this problem
Can you conect this CAM to another computer or try different cable ?
Or tell me exactly what input you have on your laptop such firewire input, PCMCIA slot
