Connecting sony dcr-ip5e to HP pavillion vista

Hello,

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

Regards

Jojo

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:
http://www.sony.co.uk/support/ShowExternalPage.action?product=DCR-HC14E&supportProductModelName=DCR-HC14E&linkType=manual&isRegistered=false&site=odw_en_GB&pageType=manualPopup&sectiontype=Support&externalUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpdf.crse.com%2Fmanuals%2F3089850112.pdf&externalLinkType=manual
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).

You need to install the card reader drivers.

Hello! I'm using a softwer : movie shaker 3.1. for Sony Handycam DCR-IP5E Micro MV Digital Camcorder and it is unable to scan longer clips then 2-3minutes,that is the maximum... Has anyboy idea for this...


Hi,
You need to use DV Port in camcorder to transfer movie files into computer that must has same DV Port.
USB port can not be used to transfer movie files as its just to provide still picture data.
DV Port is maybe labeled as iLink in your camcorder so hook camcorder with computer with DV cable.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

Problem with compatibilty between windows vista


since you're using vista you can connect camcorder to pc uding ilink or firewire cable. usb conection would not work. no dirvers or sofwtare needed, you can use windows movie maker to capture videos. check your computer for any ilink port. it is a different connection from usb. go to www.sonystyle.com and type this model number, vmcil4615, for you to have an idea what firewire cable looks like.

Download Update for Picture Motion Browser software at Sony Support.
You need iLINK cable to transfer movie data in to computer. iLINK cable is shown in below picture.
You can have more info HERE about iLINK connectivity if you are running Windows XP in your laptop.
