Hi All, I have DCR-TRV238E Digital 8 Handycam... I want to transfer the recorded video to my computer... Can you please tell me where i can download the software to upload the video on to my computer...


All of pre-HDD cam does have FireWire port somewhere in it (or at the docking station in case of SONY's)

In order to capture the footage from the cam to your PC,you need the Firewire card and the cable.Should be available at any computer hardware store.All you have to do is to install the card to your PC,connect your cam to your computer via the cable,then capture the video by your favorite video editing software.


Yes,that sounds a bit more difficult than drag-and-drop work in USB-connection camera,but not too difficult to understand,of course.

Sony PC110E video camera that is not recognised by PC


Buy a 4 to 4 pin or 4to 6 firewire cable (depending of Your PC model). Connect it to PC. In any case, the system must to recognize firewire device and capture the images. If PC don't want to see Your cam via direct firewire connection it means the firewire out is broken and needs to be repaired.

Unable to connect Sony DCR-PC3 handy cam to my pc


make sure that you are using the correct firewire plugs (4 pin on the camera and 4 or 6 pin on the computer depending on the computer). If you are sure you have all this correct, check your BIOS settings for a disabled media card or 1394 controller.

I have a problem with my windows vista not working with my new Sony Handycam Mini DV camcorder. What do I do to get the computer to find and install the needed hardware so I can edit the video?


Hi,
No extra softwares needed.
Check if cam has the firewire port. If so, you can get a 4 pin firewire cable and connect to the PC.
Switch on the Cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.


4 pin firewire would look like this:

You can use the Movie maker to burn it to the Disk

Sony DCR-TRV8 video transfer problems


The USB drive for Sony CAM you can download from Sony web but the USB will not allow you to transfer video from your CAM only for memory stick
However if you have firewire input on your Laptop, have you? normaly if you have firewire input on your laptop as soon as you connect your CAM it will detect automatic either with windown movies maker or with Nero
Sometime the firewire from CAM defect I repaired a few of them with this problem
Can you conect this CAM to another computer or try different cable ?
Or tell me exactly what input you have on your laptop such firewire input, PCMCIA slot
Cheers

My computers do not recognize sony dcr-hc28 camcorder


Hi, I'm from the Philippines. I have the same handycam model. The first time I connected it to my PC (Windows XP) via firewire, nothing happened. It cannot detect my handycam. I returned the firewire card to the shop where I bought it. They tested it and the firewire card is ok but the firewire cable is defective so they replaced it. When I got home, I tested it again but still the handycam cannot be detected by my PC. I went online to find a solution and I came upon a solution that you need to attach/connect your charger to the handycam before you connect your handycam to your PC. It said that the handycam needs a steady supply of power to be able to connect to the PC. It sounded weird but I tried it and BINGO! The handycam got detected. I was able to capture my videos.

I also have a TV Tuner & Capture Card but when I capture videos thru the RF cables, the videos losses quality and videos are blurred. Thats the reason I bought a firewire card.

Pcmcia card


i think you can connect the 2 using a firewire that can be connected thru the usb.

the camcorder has this with it. its a small cable which you connect from the cam into the laptops usb.

pcmcia port is usually for portable nics and extender slots. please do check with the firewire fisrt as this is the main route for transfering data from cam to laptop.
