You can but it requires a capture program to do it. You can't use it for chat sessions or IM programs such as Windows Live. Pinnacle Studio will allow you to record to hard drive directly through the firewire cable.

I WANTS SHARP MIN DV VL-DC5 DRIVER


Hi there
Okay so I have carried out some research on the problem you are having.
The VL-DC5 does not have drivers online to download because the drivers in windows XP support this model camcorder
The problem is that you are probably trying to connect the device to your computer using USB.
The drivers in windows XP are only compatible with this camcorder when using Firewire cables.
If you don't have a firewire cable then you will need to buy one and use this to connect your camcorder to your pc.
It should work fine after you have tried this.
Let me know how you get on!

I cannot transfer video from my Sharp VL-NZ50 to my PC


I had the same problem with the VL-NZ50. It wasn't the camera, it was the IEEE 1394 interface on the laptop(s) -
I tried two different ones, one XP, the other W7 64; both were HPs with on-board (OHCI compliant) TI
IEEE-1394 chipsets.

Then I tried a Gateway desktop (Vista) with an on-board Ricoh
IEEE 1394 interface: the VL-NZ50 was recongnized instantly, controlled by the PC and transferring video flawlessly.

If you want it to work with your laptop , try an Adaptec PCMCIA card (I've heard they work with this camera), they can be had for under $10.

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!

You should have the driver on the cdrom that came with the cam, as it may well be hidden within the software if you have'nt installed it. But if the problem continues, uninstal the current drivers in add/remove programmes and re install and add your cam to a different usb port than before, although i would of thought firewire connection would be more suitable for speedier transfers.
