Can transfer the data from dcr HC28 (mini dv) to a computer. If yes how.


You can transfer mini dv movie files through DV Link (iLink) on camcorder, plug DV / IEEE1394 cable in camcorder and computer to import camera movie files in computer. It is necessary that your computer should have IEEE1394 port.
Thanks

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV30E driver


Well Windows 7 has no camera drivers at all built-in, Sony are developing them I am told, if you use a Firewall cable to PC then no drivers are needed.

I have windows vista and i cant install the usb driver and pixela programs for this handycam please help me.


the usb driver and pixela application is not compatible with windows vista. usb streaming is not supported by windows vista and 7 OS. however it would still be possible to transfer videos from your dv camcorder using the dv interface (ieee1394 or ilink) connection. you would need to have an ilink (ieee1394) card installed in your computer. you can check by going to device manager window. if you don't, try checking with your PC manufacturer recommendations for an ieee1394 chipset or card.if you do, all you need is an ilink cable (btw, the cam uses 4pin jack).get the correct cable for use with the PC and camcorder, and use windows moviemaker for your video capturing software.hope this helps.thanks :)

also, here's the support site for your unit:

Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7


win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)

Get a capture card( IEEE1394) or if your laptop has a firewire inlet you already have a built in capture card. Connect your camcorder via a firewire cable to your laptop. Nero, Windows xp has the step by step procedure making your own dvd copy.
