Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV19 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
After years of trouble-free capturing, suddenly, I have problems with both camcorders - a Sony Handycam and a new Panasonic (both MiniDV). Both connect via firewire. images record on the camera perfectly and play without problem via cable to the TV - but, when I 'capture' them via firewire to any of several programs, they are choppy and 'broken.' So, the problem appears to not be the cameras. I have also replaced the firewire cable - no change. Any help for me out there? Thanks. David
Sounds to me that the bit rate on your PC or capturing device is not as high as that now available through the firewire ports. Try increasing the bit rate in your settings and see if that helps. Or have you always used firewire?

The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available
for Windows Vista OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer
videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer
videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows Vista Operating System.
follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection
IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.
NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.
NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards
may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK
ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will
be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
It should now be possible to capture videos using a video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.
