I need a solution to transfer the image from my sony camcorder dcr trv 285e to my vista laptop


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.



Please follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection (IEEE 1394).


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.

  1. Connect an i.LINK cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.

  1. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer.

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.

  1. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  2. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  5. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  6. Begin importing the video with the capture software.

It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.

How to transfer video from camcorder to pc bcoz i have image mixer installed it is not happening dcrdvd201 it says usb driver does not support this version window vista home premium what do i do


Hi,
There is no need to hook camcorder with computer through USB, all is required to Finalize recorded DVD in camcorder and put that disc in computer to copy files for further editing etc.
Finalized disc in camcorder will be recognized in any other dvd player or dvd-rom.
Finalize disc option is available in camcorder menu.
Thanks.

I cant seem to be able to transfer my recordings to a DVD recorder on my computer The video recorder is a Sony DCR-TRV22E.My computer is PRYON. PRY-i922vp


If the Computer is having Windows Vista installed on it then it's required to use a compatible i.LINK or Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer.
Once the connection is established, you can use Windows Movie Maker to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the computer. Make sure that the Camcorder is set to the "VCR/VTR" or "Play/Edit" mode and the tape is playing in the camcorder before importing the videos to the Computer.

If you're having Windows XP on the Computer and using USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer then it's required to install the USB streaming driver and the USB driver for connection on the Computer before you can establish a successful connection between the Computer and the camcorder for transferring videos.

You can install the USB streaming driver using the supplied Software installation disc.

I have a sony dcr-trv 22e camcorder and i am not able to transfer the images to my laptop via usb,the images are not captured and the i get the cption that that device not detected.


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 using i.LINK cable.

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.

(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 recorded my movies on the dw 100 but now i can't grt them to play on my dvd player


The DW-100 records discs based on the format they were originally recorded.

If your camera is recording HiDef videos than the discs this unit creates will be viewable on a Blu-ray disc player.

If your camera is recording in Standard Definition (ie. NOT HD) then I believe that the discs will work in regular or upconverting DVD players.

My Canon camcorder does not record in Standard Def so can't quite vouch for that last comment though.

Sony DCR-TRV38 - cannot burn movie to DVD


I found the best way of editing the footage from these cameras is to put the DVD disc into your computer and copy the contents of the VIDEO_TS folder onto another folder on your hard drive. The uses a video editing application which is specifically designed for the MPEG format. I would highly recommend the low cost "Womble MPEG Video Wizard" which is available for a 30 day trial at www.womble.com.
