SOURCE: PC does not see camcorder when connected via firewire port

apparently I get wind from researching this issue that it's not the camera, it's not the cable, it's not your computers' hardware, that this is an issue with windows directly. I have the same camera and several other systems with 1394 (firewire) ports, and this camera used to work when I had windows xp service pack 1.

SOURCE: can not connect mini dv camcorder to sony vaio laptop

there are many post on various sites that state the same as you ihave the same prob with a sony which i paid £999,00 for and it wont connect i have been researching this problem for months on and of and cannot get any further, what may help you is some information that i have discovered , there are diffrent vers of firwire difrent baud rates this could be one reason for non detection ms sp1 has a diffrent ver to sp2 it is not easy to reinstall sp1 1394 as you need to diable cabbinet files to stop the reloading of the deleted sp2 speed 1394,ther are a few hotfixes avilable from ms on xp not suer about vista also if you plug a faster 1394 device into your machine it could diasble the slower ones , and now for the the killer any manufactur that incorporates 1394 in ther package has to purchase an extremly expensive license and microsoft are heavy into the development of usb stuf and are not concentrating on 1394 hence very little or no support, the only thing you could try is download virtual pc free from ms download site and install the op sys that pertains to the age of the cam good luck

Hi, I am having Sony DCR TRV22E Camcorder, and installing the driver given with it on Windows 7, but the driver given in the CD is not allowed to install on Windows 7 OS, what is the solution for this ?...

You don't need to install a driver. You should be able to connect the camcorder, using a Firewire/1394 cable, and Windows 7 should recognize it. All versions of Windows since Windows 98 can recognize DV video camcorders. I have a very similar (although USA version) Sony camcorder and I have connected it to over a dozen different Windows computers without ever installing a driver.

Now, while you don't need a driver, you DO need a capture program (an application) to actually do the video capture. Most versions of Windows include

Windows Movie Maker

and this can be used to do the capture. I also highly recommend the shareware program called:


which you can download and try for free.

Window 7 problem cannot detect my video cam

After connecting the Camcorder to the Computer with the Firewire/i.LINK, turn ON the Camcorder.
Keep the Camcorder in Playback mode.
Start the Moviemaker Software which is pre-installed in the Windows.
Check whether the Camcorder is recognized as the Video Device.

If the Camcorder is not recognized, then check whether it works with other Computer or not.
You may also try using a different i.LINK cable that is compatible with the Sony Camcorder.
Sony Camcorder have 4 pin DV Interface and the Computers may have either 4pin or 6-pin i.LINK/Firewire port. So make sure that you are using the correct cable.

I have sony trv33 and windows 7 using firewire 1394 port and cable computer does not recognise camcorder when turned on

Your camera will not be recognized when you connect it via firewire. To transfer the video from your camera to your computer you will need a video editing program that is able to capture video from camcorders connected via firewire.
You can try Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7. Alternatively your can search through the internet to find a more advanced video editing software.

DCR-TRV355E Sony Handy Cam not recognizes by Vista o my 32 bit HP lap top (New)

If you are using the USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer to transfer the videos to the Computer then:

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer.

The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video to the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

NOTE: You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Downloading images

Make sure you have a DV cable also know as a firewire cable. You will need some software to capture the video from your camera to your hard drive. Pinnacle Studio is an inexpensive system for capturing, editing, and producting videos to DVD.

Make sure you have a firewire port in the back of your computer.

Capturing video

I had to get a Firewire cable to make this cam work with Vista. I was told Firewire is faster (?) and much better video quality because it is made for loads of data. I can't tell any much of difference from USB, but it does work with Firewire. So, basically try a Firewire cable.

Video capture problems

Sounds to me that the bit rate on your PC or capturing device is not as high as that now available through the firewire ports. Try increasing the bit rate in your settings and see if that helps. Or have you always used firewire?
