It seams that this camcorder uses digital 8 media for storage ..and it does record digital ..so the transfer should not be a problem ..but it has no slot for any kind of external memory so the direct record to a external drive or flash is not possible ...but ..the way to upload the footage is simple and you just have to use a firewire cable ..and capture the footage on a video manager like windows movie maker.. The procedure is just like any other tape camcorder...just plug the cable ..let the computer see the camera ..and than use the video manager to import or capture the video while it is played back .. If your operation system does not have a movie maker ..use the one recommended by Sony on the support site ..or any other which has the capacity to capture from device .. The only way to capture directly to the computer's hdd is also with a video manager..but the camera needs to have the ability to stream ...To try it and see if it is able to ..just plug it with the wirefire...open the movie maker..and choose to capture from device and see if you have any image on the preview..If it does..it means it is capable to stream and capture in real time on the movie maker..than be saved as a video file on the hdd..

Did you mean you are recording video and audio using your Television set? I'm afraid that dazzle is not design to used if for capturing or even capturing using Windows Movie maker. Because dazzle device is design to used for Pinnacle Studio program and Instant DVD recorder program only, It is not supported to used for both of them. That is the reason why there is no Picture while recording.
How to Record Webcam Video with Earlier Versions of Windows Movie Maker
you're still using Windows XP, your Windows Movie Maker version might
still support capturing video from a webcam. To do this, go to your WMM
Movie Tasks and then select "Capture from Video Device". Select webcam
from the list of analog devices. You must also select the video input
line you want to use for capturing your webcam video. Then enter a name
for your captured video file and the location of the drive where you
want to save it. Select your video setting preferences for the video
you want to capture. To stop capturing, you can either
choose to stop anywhere during the recording session or indicate a specific time limit before the recording stops.
How to Record Video on Your Webcam with Newer Versions of Windows Movie Maker
we say newer versions, we are referring to Windows Movie Maker version
6 which comes pre-loaded with the Windows Vista system. Since Windows
Vista is a pretty advanced OS, we expected the latest version of the
WMM to support webcam video capture as well. It's very helpful and
economical since it comes packaged with Windows Vista, and you don't
have to pay the extra cost just to have that tool. So, the next
question now is, how can you record a webcam video using Windows Movie
Maker 6. Actually, like we said - you can't. You won't see the "Start
Capture" tool in the File Menu of your latest Windows Movie Maker. Your
best bet is to look for alternative and cheaper software that would
help you capture whatever you want to record from your webcam. Or,
better yet, use the software that comes with your webcam to capture
video and then import it into Windows Movie Maker for
editing and enhancements. If your webcam didn't come with video capture
software, you're in luck because there are free software appllications
available for you to download to do such tasks. You can find a good
list of webcam video capturing software from this list: http://www.sharewareconnection.com/titles/webcam-video.htm
you need to find a capture program ...in windows this may be done with movie maker ...or some other programs,. it also has a capture in the camera window...when you click to open from the program files...on the web cam window you will find a capture choice...you first have to make some adjustments ..and allocate space and place for saving from "file "..also have to choose the the other settings like the device...( cam driver hp..... never choose the sound driver cause it will record only sounds..) anyway ...a specialized program for capture will do those in a proper way ...and more accurate ..so you would not have to make choices you are not sure ...but remember ..the capture time depends on the space allocated...and the format you are setting to be saved ...( avi ...divx ...etc) so it virtually may work for days ...as long as it has space to store ...and power surply ..:P I hope it is inlightning for you ..
