There are number of softwares if you are doing normal editing which is not professional you can use Pinnacle studio 12 or Nero 9 or 10. Where you will be using a firewire cable called also by Sony by the name I-link or 1394 cable. Most camcorders come with thier on software to download the drivers for that camera for a particular operating system. Try this or otherwise tell me the details of what you have and what you are trying to do.
You need to buy a TV card which comes with audio /video composite sockets. these are female RCA or phono sockets which are also found on your camera.TV cards come with their own software to be able to capture pictures from your Hi 8 Camcorder using the av cables like the ones you use from your DVD to your TV set. There are other cards which carry the av sockets and come with video capture software. These cards are usually PCI cards which are fitted into your PCI slot in your PC motherboard. One other software that comes with such a card is Pinnacle Studio. Its called the Pinnacle AV/DV pci capture card. The one I use is just a DC 10 which works with Studios version 8. Please try any of these cards for your video capture
It is very simple. Install a Firewire (IEEE1394) card in PCI slot (if you don't have any video capture card) and connect DCR460E camcorder to PC through iLink cable. You need a video editing software like Ulead Video studio, Pinnacle studio or any other to be installed in your PC. Then go to capture mode of that programme and capture transfer video to PC hard disk. Windows movie maker is also do the same. For editing and better special effects you should use hihger versions of ulead or pinnacle. Thank you.

Windows Movie Maker is pretty limited. I think Microsoft gave up on software like that. Especially since it creates files in version 8 format. I think there up to 11 these days.
Pinnacle Studio is a good program to use. I have used it professionally for over 5 years now and have produced 100s of videos and DVDs with it covering everything from You Tube videos up to a wedding I shot for a client this last weekend.
Once you connect your camera to it and turn it on, it gives you the option to start it up.
Can't determine this one.
"What is the best and easier way to transfer "...
Sadly this one can't be answered since we'd have to create some list of software, install and connect with USB or Firewire and tabulate the results.
Usually, we have to just settle with others here sharing what works for them, but best is rarely found.
