Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV19 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I am trying to import video from the DCR-TRV19 to an apple computer and can not get it to work. Is this camcorder compatible with an apple computer?
Unfortunately, the DCR-TRV19 is only compatible with windows - see the list of compatible versions at this address:
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:
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.
