Question about Sony Handycam DCR-IP5E Micro MV Digital Camcorder
I have a new laptop hp pavilion dv4-1038tx which is operating on vista and does not have ilink port or card bus slot to put a firewire card.
I have a firewire cardbus which i use to connect my sony dcr-ip5e to my old laptop which used windows 2000nt. Unfortunately i no longer have this old laptop now.
I would like to know how i can connect to download data from my sony dcr-ip5e on my new laptop which dont have the connection port. I tried with ilink to usb2 cable but my computer doesnt recognize the camcorder
Pls help to point me the right hardware or driver or solution which can solve this problem. Thanks
hi I have the exact same camera,
i had problems connecting it with the firewire connection but not any of the other connections on the camera. I found that it was down to one of the pins on the DV/Ilink connection, one of them had been bent back. i just used a pin to bend it back into shape and it works again

There is a great manual here:
And in short the I.link is a 1394 port or firewire port
You should be good to go

Try a video card that supports current DirectX. Apparently it has an effect even if you capture without previewing the video. (worked for me, anyway).
