Question about Sony DCR-HC19E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Compatibility of Sony DCR-HC19E with Windows Vista

My sony camcorder is not being detected as new hardware on a Windows Vista operated system. I've used it previously on Windows XP and it worked fine. I was able to download footage, edit and burn to dvd. The sony website says that no drivers are required for this model. I've been told that I need a firewire connection. Is this correct? What should I do to solve this problem? Pls help.

You can connect other firewire devices - to each other - without even using your computer ; also , usb can slow down video transfers , if other processes are going on at the same time ;

My computer does not recognize the camera and needs to install a driver where do i get it/what do i do?


Mini DV Camcorders requires driver from supplied CD to connect it to the Computer. This is the case when you're using XP or previous Operating System.
If you're using a Operating System which is higher than XP like Vista or Windows 7, the usb streaming driver is not available from Sony at this point and may not be available at a later point also..
In that case, you can use either A/V interface or i.LINK interface to transfer videos.
Please let me know if you require any further assistance with these two interfaces or any other questions.
Thanks.

I have picture package 1.5 but when i want to convert the tape to cd, i can not select the source and target is there a patch for this ? This for DCR-HC32 E Also i have now bought a new laptop which has...


The supplied Picture Package software is not compatible with the Vista Operating System.

Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893


NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need dirver Windows Vista 64 bits for Handycam TRV-740


This was taken from Sony's Website....
Driver information for Microsoft® Windows Vista® and Windows® XP
  • The drivers needed to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. With these drivers, you should be able to connect and transfer files to a computer.
  • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows Vista operating system.
  • Detailed Windows Vista compatibility information is available for Sony Cameras and Camcorders.
  • The Windows Vista Starter edition and Windows XP 64-bit operating systems are not supported.
So as you can see...the 64 bit OS is NOT supported.  The only luck you are going to have is either go to XP, Vista 32 bit...or see if there is a 3rd party driver someone made on the internet.  Try google....but I would have to say due to the complex nature of the drivers, it is highly unlikely that anyone has made a driver that is compatible.  It just has to do with how the 64 bit OS is made.  There might be a way to use 32 bit drivers, however you might run into some issues with processing and streaming.  To my knowledge of 64 bit systems, they are backwards compatible with 32 bit applications, so you can use wither 32 or 64 bit drivers....the only downside is by using 32 bit on a 64 bit machine, you are going to suffer a little bit of performance loss.  I hope this answers your questions.
