Could that be you don't played the tape. When capturing the cam should be playing.

Trying to download mini dv tape onto video


for to import from the Sony handy-cam you need a firewire cable ..not a rca..this one will only help you see the video on a tv ...but you will not be able to import them into computer ...
just ask at the store..and take the camera with you ..
another thing the camera may support even a usb cable that may be available in the box that it came with (infact the iLink cable should be there too )
so ..this is a link to a video I use to explain in detail the procedure to import fom minitape of sony handycam.
.http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876
after have them into the windows movie maker..just drag them to the story board..(join them if you need) ..and save them by finishing movie...and save to computer ..in best for computer mode...after that just burn them to **** ..using Nero ..or if they are small enough to get into a cd ...use window feature for burning ..

Transfer to Pc not transferring sound


Hi,
try using Windows Movie Maker.

You can use an option called Import Video from Device.

It will not ask you for any options.
and its easy to use.

But you need to use 4pin to 4pin Firewire cable.

Trouble transferring video onto PC


First thing to try is updating the picture package software(assuming you have windows XP); http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=DCRDVD403&UpdateType=Everything&SelectOS=7 Probably worth uninstalling and reinstalling the program before applying the update. The update doesn't claim to fix your issue, but try it anyway, there are sometimes additional parts to these updates. Here is the link for the user manual if you need it; http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DCRDVD403®ion_id=1 Check page 100 - USB speed setting - see if that makes a difference. Check page 86, it has contact links for pixela, who support the software. If you record a movie, then finalise the disc before trying to transfer the video, this should stop any recording over information without formatting the disc first. then put the disk into your pc dvd drive instead of using the cable link. You should then be able to view the movies using most media player programs. Try a dvd on which there are only movie files, no still images - see if you get the same problem. Hope this helps, please ask again if you still have a problem :)
