Ilink problems on hp pavillion

I am using Windows XP Home Edition and the iLINK software to connect my Sony Digital Handycam (model no. DCR-TRV310) to my HP computer. Using the Windows Movie Maker 2 software, I have been able to download digital video from my camcorder to the computer in the past, but I am trying to do it now and it does not work.
I open Windows Movie Maker and go File>Capture Video and a window pops up saying: "A video capture device was not detected. Verify that a device is turned on and connected properly, and then try again." I connected the iLINK cable properly, and I have bought another iLINK cable to ensure that the cable is not faulty. I have all the necessary drivers that came with my computer to upload digital video to it, but it does not work.
Can someone please help me?

Does your PC have a firewire (also called iLink or IEEE1394a) connection and a firewire cable to connect to the PC?
You also require an editing application such a Windows Movie Maker.

I cant download my DCR-TRV250 Digital 8 videos to my computer. I tryed on Win 7 and Win XP, with or without Sony drivers... But no computers recognize my cam. Also I looked for help on Sony eSupport, but...


From the Sony support page for this camera, it has the following:
  • Drivers:
    • The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
  • Not Supported:
    • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
    • The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.

Cant instal drivers


usb streaming function is not readily supported by windows vista. this would depend on the software that came supplied with the camcorder. unfortunately, the software being incompatible and the funtion (usb streaming) not supported by driver included in the supplied cd-rom, usb connection will not work (although you can use it for still picture transfer). for tape transfer you would need to go another route which is ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) connection. it should be a plug-and-play connection. your computer should support and have a working ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) card installed. a compatible ilink cable for both devices and a video capturing software like windows moviemaker and having all the needed hardware and software then your good to go. hope this helps.thanks:)

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 :)

I think you are using Windows Vista and facing problem to connect Sony DCR-HC53
Download Update for Picture Motion Browser software at Sony Support.
You need iLINK cable to transfer movie data in to computer. iLINK cable is shown in below picture.
You can have more info HERE about iLINK connectivity if you are running Windows XP in your laptop.

Sony DCR TRV310


Spent and afternoon online with the tech....the best they could come up with was that I wasn't using an authentic Sony iLink cable. $40 later it still didn't work. (BTW it was previously working on standard firewire cables just fine) We tried it on different computers, different cables, etc.
I strongly suspect that the firmware has changed in the camera. No one seems to know of a way to reset or re-flash it. Looks like I'll have to replace or repair it.

I hope your luck is better.

USB streaming does not work for Windows Vista. Use the firewire/ilink connection instead.
