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

SOURCE: Camcorder Sony DCR-HC19E not connecting with USB

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

SOURCE: Connecting Sony Handycam DCR-HC14E to iMac

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).

I want to connect my HP pavilion notebook dv1000 by firewire


You should be able to get a firewire card to fit you computer. A standard pc card should fit a HP. There are two separate kinds of PC cards. There are the standard and the express versions. Make sure you get the standard version, because express is mostly for Dell. You may want to go to HP and confirm this by looking at the support section for your computer. As far as what type of firewire card, get what you think you will need. There isn't much difference between different brands.

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.

Jvc problem


I think you can by using the firewire cable, connect it to the the slot indicated by i (for iLink) DV on the camcorder and connect it ot the computer firwire port. A firewire slot is available if a Firewire card is isntalled on your computer. I am in the process of installing a Firewire Card (starting from $15.00 and upwards) hopefully everything works out.

New laptop


any laptop that has an iLink 1394 (firewire on apple computers) port and a DVD burner can do it. Any apple laptop with a superdrive (dvd burner) can do it with iMovie/iDVD, and any windows computer with the i.LINK port and Windows Movie Maker can do the job. I know most (if not all) sony, dell, acer and HP laptops come with the i.LINK port standard, just double check the model when you look at the specs. You'll want at least 1gb of ram (preferably 2GB, especially if you're running windows vista), and the firewire cable to connect the computer to the minidv camera (6 pin to 4 pin if you get an apple computer, 4-4 pin if it's a windows notebook)

Where is the firewire port?


Confirm that the laptop has a PCMCIA card slot. If so, you can get a Firewire PCMCIA card and communicate at near bus speeds on the laptop. That will be a lot faster than the USB port. Almost any Firewire PCMCIA will work. Just make sure that slot is in your chassis.

Firewire cards


Why do you need to use another firewire card? The firewire port located on the right of the machine between the card reader and USB ports should work fine with most devices. I use mine frequently with a Sony Firewire camcorder and have never had a problem.

You cannot connect a DV cable to a USB port. These are two incompatible standards. DV is also called Firewire, iLink or IEEE1394. You PC must have that kind of port for you to transfer your video from the ZR800 and you will need a DV (iLink/Firewire) cable. You cannot use USB cable they will not work. Check www.MyCableMart.com if you want an example. Most new PC come with 1 or 2 iLink/Firewire/1394 port. If you PC does not have an iLink/Firewire/1394 port then you will need to install a iLink/Firewire/1394 card (see http://www.usbfirewire.com/Parts/rr-fw-byt.html) for more information.
