    is it the black rubber piece? because underneath that one the chord doesn't fit in!

    and underneath the grey one where it says "OPEN" the chord does not fit in there either

    Unfortunately, the only way to upload from the DCR-SR42 to the PC is with the dock. quite Frustrating!!

    Except I've misplaced the "a/v out" cord. Now what? I can't copy to a dvd without it.

You can't connect the camcorder directly to the computer. You need the docking station. The camera sits on the docking station and on the back are the outputs to connect to the computer.

How do i download a video into my computer from the Sony Handycam DCR-HC21 Mini DV Digital Camcorder


There are two way to upload your picture's or video's to your pc:

  1. You can upload video to the use of your camcorder connector. Connect your USB cable to your camcorder and plug it to your computer. You need to turn on your camcorder so that it will be recognized by the computer.
  2. You can upload also your video's with the use of memory card reader. Remove your memory card from your camcorder and insert it to the card reader. Plug the card reader to the computer. The computer will recognized the card. Now you can upload your photo's or video's.

My SC-DC163 camcorder does nothing when I try to upload videos to my PC.


the way you can transfer your videos on your computer is by using USB cable and install the driver to your computer. You can upload your videos by saving it on ULEAD products. As far as i know you cant transfer videos from disc to your memory card unless it was been converted but you cant view or watch it on your camcorder itself only computer can play this because your camcorder is not able to play such converted files.

thank you for using fixya

Uploading video to Mac


You can't transfer videos through USB. You will need a Firewire 6-pin cord and use it to connect from your MAC to the Camcorder. Only then you can transfer videos.
