Hi There, Your camera does have a firewire output to go to your computer. To send video to the computer, you need to have a large or seperate hard drive. You also need to have some editing software: and not the ones that come with your computer. Something like Pinnacle Studio, around $149.00 USD. This is the easiest software to use for non professional people like us.
Thanks, me cicmo

SOURCE: putting video footage on my computer

To get your footage into the computer from DV tape you need a four pin firewire (IEEE1493 or iLink) cable from the camera to a six pin cable into the computer. USB will not do a proper job, it's for downloding photos or as you already mentioned, Web caming.

I would like to connect a sony ccd-trv108 ntsc,to my computer.What cable will i need.


Your camera will not connect directly to a computer.
What is required is and A/D Converter box (analogue to digital).
You connect the camera to the box with RCA cables and from the box to the computer a firewire cable.
Play the camera manually and the computer converts on the fly.

I connect the IEEE cable (4 pin to 4 pin) to the camera and the computer and turn the camera to "play". The camera is not recognized by the computer.


Check the cable first. It's easy - put another one. If it works - change the cable. If Not - check the PC input by connecting another similar camera. If it works with another camera, then Your IEEE camera port is broken and needs to be repaired. And the order of connection must be: 1. Power off camera. 2. Put IEEE cable on it. 3. Plug another connector of cable on computer. 4. Power on the camera. DON´T TRY TO CONNECT A CAMERA IN A PLAY MODE, it probably can destroy Your camera IEEE port. Sincerely.

Cant detect camera on dv video recording transfers.


Hi, I hope the camera you are talking about is ZR200 Mini DV.
As per its specifications. It has a firewire/DV port.
Therefore, follow these steps. I assume you are using this cable. http://cdn.overstock.com/images/products/L10726964.jpg

I am not sure how you used the firewire cable before.
So, try this. Connect one end of the cable to computer and other to the camera. Switch on the camera and keep it in play/ edit mode (not in shooting mode).
When you connect the other end to the computer,  There should be a popup asking you what to do.
If there is no popup,  Open Windows Movie maker and import video from device. You should see the camera in it.
Hope it works.

How do I get video from my still camera into my computer?


If you have stored your video on the removable memory card and you have a computer with a card reader, just take the memory card out of the camera and plug it into the correct slot on your computer.

If you don't have a card reader or your video is stored on the camera's internal memory, you will need to connect your camera to your computer using a usb lead.

Before connecting the camera, you will need the drivers installed on your computer. This is on the cdrom that came with the camera. If you don't have the cdrom, download the drivers from the camera manufacturer's website.

Finally, you will need software on your computer to play .mov files or whatever the format is of your video recording. You may have sotware already, so try it first.
