Transferring video to a pc

I have a samsung mini dv #d363. The instructions say that I need a IEEE 1394 add-on card to transfer video from camcorder to my pc. If I purchase one of those, do I need something else to hook it up or will it go directly into my desktop pc?

If your pc has a firewire port, then you won't need a card.

How can I get Windows 7 Movie Maker to recognise input from my Sony DCR TRV18E Handycam?


On page 230 of the user manual, it describes how to transfer movies from the camera to a computer using an i.Link (IEEE 1394) cable. You will need the 4 pin i.Link cable and an IEEE 1394 connector on your computer in order to do this. You cannot use the USB cable to transfer the video from this camcorder -- you can only transfer still images using the USB cable.
You will have to buy this i.Link cable and (if you don't have a IEEE 1394 port on your computer) a IEEE 1394 adapter card for you desktop computer. If your laptop computer doesn't have a IEEE 1394 adapter, then you're pretty much out of luck.
Once you have the i.Link and 1394 issues resolved, then Movie Maker should then recognize the camera.

WE HAVE NOT CONNECT TO PC MYSamsung VP-D371i MiniDV, Digital Camcorder


From the user manual, I've discovered that you have to use a IEEE 1394 cable (see the jacks display on page 11) to be able to download the movies from your camera. The camera does not come with a IEEE 1394 cable -- it only comes with a USB cable, so you will have to buy the cable.
Unfortunately, most PCs do not come with a IEEE 1394 connector and you have to buy an adapter card for a desktop computer. If you laptop does not have a IEEE 1394 port, then you are out of luck.
Once you have the cable and the port on the computer squared-away, check page 87 of the user manual for directions on how to retrieve the the video from the camera to the computer.

I want to copy video footage from the tape to the sd card.


Hi!
You cannot transfer the video from Mini-DV to SD card within your camera as your camcorder does not have this feature. If your purpose for finding this function is to transfer your footage to your computer, you may try using the firewire port in your camera to connect it to your pc.
If you need help with the firewire connection, feel free to post a follow up.
Hope this helps!

Don't have cds for SC-D363 to use with PC


I have a Sc-D365, which as I understand it, the same as the SC-D363 but has a couple more bells and whistles. You need to download the drivers and other software so it will talk to your computer. Go to : http://www.samsung.com/us/support/search/supportSearchResultView.do?group=&group_cd=&type=&type_cd=&subtype=&subtype_cd=&model_nm=SCD363&dType=D&vType=L&mType=&model_cd=&menu=&language= to download the stuff you need. The page will have a tab for each of: "Manual", "Drivers", "Software" and you ll have to select each tab to get the files you need in each category. You will also need to buy a Firewire cable (IEEE 1394) with a small male connector on one end (camera side) and a regular sized connector male on the other (computer side). If you don't already have a Firewire interface on your computer, you will need to get one. That's the only way you can get the video from the TAPE. You will also need to get a USB cable with standard USB male on one end (computer side) and mini on the other (camera side). Once you download the User's Manual, it lists the part numbers of the USB cable and the analog cable to connect it to the TV. The USB cable is used to transfere photos and video files stored on the Memory Stick PRo memory module (user-supplied) and to stream live video to your computer. I use my SC-D365 for webcam applications in video conferencing, it works rather well for that, too. Good luck!

Capture video not responding - driver issue


Are you using the USB cable that came with the camcorder? If so, then don't use it, because it doesn't work for loading from mini DV tapes to other devices. Instead, buy a IEEE 1394 "FireWire" cable (whether 4/6/ pin, whatever you need)in order to pass the videos from the camara to the computer. note: DO NOT buy a cable that has a USB on one side and a IEEE 1394 on the other side, thus it doesn't work. You must buy a cable that has both IEEE 1394 ports on both sides.

Samsung SC-D363 won't load to my computer


If you are trying to move video that is stored on TAPE, you need to get a Firewire cable. Using the USB cable, you can only transfer photos and video that is stored on the Memory Stick Pro memory card (user-supplied). The Firewire cable has a standard IEEE-1394 male connector on the computer end and a mini IEEE-1394 male connector on the camera end. If you don't have a Firewire interface on your computer, you will need to get one. Good luck.

Can I use Firewire to transfer video?


Your computer must be equipped with an IEEE 1394 (Firewire) interface and video capture software. Provided you have both of these, follow the directions below. To connect your digital camcorder to your computer using IEEE1394, follow these steps: 1. Connect the IEEE 1394 interface on your camcorder to the IEEE 1394 interface on your computer. 2. Turn on your computer. 3. Turn on your camcorder. 4. Start the video capture software on the computer. Image capture should begin provided the computer hardware and software are configured correctly. If image capture does not begin, you must consult the computer or capture card manufacturer for assistance. Note: If you don't have an IEEE 1394 interface on your computer, you can buy an IEEE 1394 pci card at your local computer store that will work with most current computers.
