Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD108 DVD Camcorder
Transfer video from my handycam sony 608E into my computer, to edit or save to my computer file
SOURCE: XP does'nt recognise Handycam
Hello Laura. You cannot transfer video from this camcorder with a USB cable. You will need a DV cable. This cable did not come with your camcorder. You will also need software for the transfer process. Windows Movie Maker can do this although I've never used it. I used a product called Scenalyzer. There is a free demo version at www.scenealyzer.com, but it will leave a watermark on your video if you don't pay for it. You might try Windows Movie Maker first if you already have it.
Once you have captured the video on your computer, you cannot just burn it to a DVD as a file if you want to play it in DVD players. This too requires special software.
I'm travelling for work right now, but when I get home in a few days I can be of more help. If you want to keep going on this, get a DV cable and see if you can capture the video with Windows Movie Maker and let me know.

first you need a driver for your camcorder to recognize the device what you plug. use USB for pluging it. upload your videos to any movie maker application such as ulead movie maker, nero movie maker, windows movie maker, etc.. save it with any various types of videos like avi, divx, vcd, dvd, etc.. and now its on your computer. heres the link and other instructions of installations. hope that helps!
just click the download bar

Installed macromedia flash player. After a short period of time, left plugged in and running, wizard detection of new program kicked in and went through series of setups. Screen stays small but does allow to download to computer.

The S-video on your computer is for output video (to connect to monitor or TV). Samething for your Cam. You need to have a device video input (USB or PCMCIA) to connect to your computer, and a software (driver that comes with the device) to CAPTURE the video from your Cam.
So you need a hardware and sofware for this. Price now is ~ US$ 40 to > US$100 depending on the brand and quality.
