    Where is the USB connector on the Sony DCR-DVD105?

  • raadik Jan 09, 2009

    In the online manual page 20 it says USB cable is for models 305 and 755 I am having the same issue and trying to get Sony to resolve

    As I understand the DVD-105: it does not have USB or Firewire connections. You get your video from your camera to your computer via the mini DVD removed from your camera and installed into your computer. Since there is no USB or Firewire connection, you cannot use this unit as a camcorder either. With what I know now, I would not have bought this unit.

    same issue, no way to connect to a computer. I have had some problems with some DVD-R reading on any computer or DVD drive and have no other way to get the information off the disc. Guess I should have bought the more expensive model.

This problem has largely been answered by one of people posting the problem. Once the disk has been finalised in the camera remove it and insert it in the PC's DVD drive. If it "Autoruns" you will be asked what you want to do. If you have no third party video editing software on your machine select .....using Windows Movie Maker and "Import" the footage into that program. If the disk doesn't "Autorun" start WMM and import from your DVD drive (probably drive "D"). Use WMM's Help to find your way around.

How to load Mini DVD to Mac
  • Though Mini DVD can not be played back in Mac slot loading player, we have other ways to load Mini DVD to Mac.
  • Method 1 If Mini DVD camcorder has FireWire or USB; just connect the Mini DVD camcorder to Mac using FireWire, or USB to load Mini DVD to Mac.
  • Method 2 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB; just shop for external mini-DVD drive that uses either a USB or Firewire connector cable, and then connect the external mini-DVD drive to your Mac and install any extra software that came with it. Insert the mini-DVD into the external drive, and then access the files on the mini-DVD as you normally would to load Mini DVD to Mac.
  • Method 3 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB; buy an adapter that converts a mini-DVD to a normal DVD by adding on a circular plastic piece that emulates the full size of a regular DVD. Attach the adapter to the mini-DVD and load it into the Mac's DVD drive to access the files. (Check the specifications of the adapter before purchasing, as several on the market do not work in vertical-loading drives like those found on the MacBook Pro.)
  • Method 4 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB and you don't want to buy a separate external drive or full-size adapter either, but you do have access to a PC, you can transfer the files on the mini-DVD onto the PC, then put them onto a USB flash drive, which will work on your Mac.

How to connect a macbook pro and a handycam DCR-DVD105.


If your cam has a firewire connection, you could plug it into the macbook and use iMovie to transfer the videos over. You can also get an external DVD drive to put those tiny DVDs into to transfer it over.

Can I send data from the Handycam DCR-DVD105 to my macbookpro???


Hi!
Unfortunately, your camera does not have a USB jack, and does not have any way to transfer digital data from the disc to your Macbook.
I'd suggest loading your disc to a computer with a non-slot loading dvd drive, download your footage there, and either burning the data to a regular-sized dvd or putting the data in a flash drive to transfer it to you Macbook.
Hope this helps!

Looks like you can get one from amazon.com for about $20:

Cam Corder Connection To PC


Your PC must have DV port for DV signal.
You can connect your camera with PC through USB port only.
Try to find DV card for PC in local computer market.
