Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV318 Camcorder
Exactly what wires do I need to import video from my cam to pinnacle dazzle video creator plus HD --
You will need to have an i-Link cable, also known as a IEEE 1394 cable, which is a four pin to four pin cable. That will hooked to the DV output from your camera to the DV input on your computer, if so equipped. Also there is a cable with a four pin i-Link to USB cable which I use my self on my system to import DV from my camera to the edit program.
Hope that this is helpful to you.

Which model your handycam is? Are you using one with Flash card or is it minidv? If it's flash card you can try using a card reader, and if it's a minidv, you should use a capture card to transfer the video.

You don't. According to Sony, your camera will not stream video via the USB port. You can only do this using the i.Link connection (what everyone but Sony calls Firewire). The list of camera models that will stream via USB, and the method to do it, is on THIS LINK Your camera is not in the list.
Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card. Or maybe you have a Mac. You haven't said.
Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other. My camera came with the correct lead.
There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading video to computer at THIS LINK You will need to select your operating system, then Mini-DV as the camera type, then select the type of connection. As you will see, the USB option warns that it won't work with many cameras, and you are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire).

Sounds like time code breaks.
If you stripe the tape (record in one continuous run with the lens cap on and audio off) this will assist greatly.

Sony DCR-HC38E should have an interface called 1394, or the firewire.
so you need to use a FireWire cable to connect it to your computer's firewire interface,
some laptops have it built-in,
If you don't have one on your computer, you can either purchase a IEEE1394/FireWire adapter, which should be under 100 or even $50.
