You should be able to transfer files to the hard drive. The camera will be assigned a letter in my computer. Divx software is good to convert them onto a disk and it's reasonably priced.

I can not tranfer video files from JVC GR-DVX 400EG to pc.


If you have a DVD recorder/player with DV in put, you can buy a FireWire 4 pin male cable from a good audio/video shop which can connect to the DV socket on the camcorder. I got mine from Maplins only last week and at last I am saving the tapes to DVD.
Follow the DVD recorder booklet instructions and note every time you stop recording it will be saved as a separate file.

How to transfer sony dcr-hc26 videos to pc using usb cable thanks


The Sony HDR-HC26 is a miniDV tape based camcorder. No surprises if you can't get USB streaming working.

ALL miniDV tape based camcorders transfer DV-format video by conneting the DV port of the HD camcorder to the Firewire port of your computer. USB won't work. The "DV" in miniDV = Digital Video. It is as digital as the digital video from flash memory or hard disc drive or DVD based camcorders - only better because it is not compressed as much as the others.

Memory cards are not the only way to store digital video - and while not as good as miniDV tape, memory cards are not as bad as DVD based consumer camcorders...

Firewire IEEE1394, DV and i.LINK are all the same thing.

If your computer does not have a firewire port, hopefully it has an available expansion slot (PCI for desktops; PCMCIA or ExpressCard for laptops), so you can add one.

How to transfer record to my laptopeduard


needs drivers to install camera to laptop. or In order to place taped videos to the PC, you need a Fire Wire port on your computer, a 6pin to 4pin fire wire cable, and a lot of hard drive space. One hour is about 14 gigs when transfered 100% uncompressed. After editing and compression though the file size is very manageable.

**For every minute you record it takes one minute to transfer to the PC*


or you need a usb videop capture to transfer video to your laptop

First make sure to finalize recorded disc in camcorder, finalization option is available in camcorder menu and will be enable by powering camcorder with AC charger/ adapter.
Now you can transfer movie files in computer or put recorded disc in computer dvd rom and copy files.

Transfer from pz card shot on HD to mini DV tape


you can transfer to DV tape only by using software like Edius 6 or a similar one.
First you download the p2 card on the hard drive and then you use this program to convert the video file to DV and use the camcorder as recorder connecting to pc via firewire .

Hi am wanting to put some footage from panasonic sdr h40 onto computer


Your Panasonic camera has a USB port on it as associated by the accompanying cable that plugs into it and has a USB end on the other cable. Note that if your videos are on the SD card, you can take it out and put in your computer via a SD adaptor to USB. The hard drive files though are a little more tricky... you have to have the camera being fed by the AC adaptor instead of the battery.. (it looks like the battery and plugs into its hole on the bottom with a cable hangiong out that plugs into the battery charger.. You will not be able to transfer the files unless you have this power configuration.. this is to keep the transfer from being disrupted by running out of battery power. The files are MOD files which are MPEG2 files just renemed. You can rename them to MPG instead of MOD once you copy to the computer. The USB connection forces the PC to make a drive letter for the hard drive in the camera. I hope that helps out

Than ks!

Completly confused


You need a video recorder program. The SC-D23 is a MiniDV tape camcorder, not a hard drive based camcorder. So you can't just drag-and-drop, it doesn't show up as a drive.

And you must use the Firewire cable. The USB connection is only good for transferring from the memory card.

Windows Movie Maker is free and can transfer from a Firewire drive like this one. If you don't have it already, download WMM from Microsoft's website. The Help files should tell you all you need to know, if you need to know more about using WMM you can come back here and post in the appropriate area.

Whatever video recording program you use, it will run the camcorder as if it were a VCR that you were recording from.

BTW, it is very important that the camcorder be turned OFF when you plug in the Firewire cables. Turn it on only AFTER it is connected to the computer. Otherwise you may destroy the Firewire port on the camcorder.

How to convert dv tape from Canon ZR20 to MY COMPUTER hard drive?


To transfer video off your minidv cassettes from your camcorder you would need to have a firewire connection to your PC. Either a 4 to 4 pin connection (laptop) or a 4 to 6 pin (desk top computer). USB is used only for picture still transfer. Here are the steps;

1. Plug your mini Dv camcorder into an outlet
2. Plug in you firewire connection into your computer, then plug the other end into your camcorder.
3. Turn on your camcorder and switch your camcorder to Play/VCR
4. Select the software that you want use to do the transfer. Windows Movie Maker is the most assessable software since you have XP on your computer
5. Name your file
6. Select capture from video device (automatically will allow you to save the entire tape and manually would allow you to capture parts of the tape).

Those are the basic steps in some detail. You can save your file from there or you can go on to edit.

Transfering from a hard drive camcorder to a mini dv


Yes. Using a DV or firewire cable and the right software you can record to DV tape. I know Pinnacle Studio software is capable of doing this and will even control the recording of the taping as well through the sofware.

Transfer my minidv camcorder film onto DVD


You need to download the movie to a computer and store it in a video file. Then you should be able to use a software program to burn it to a DVD. I use a TIVO for watching and burning my videos. You don't need a computer. You save the video by recording it to the TIVO's hard drive then after it is on the drive you DUB it to an empty DVD-R disc.
