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?

It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.

Windows xp home edition reinstall

If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.

ILink cable and laptop

I would have to consult your manuals.

I think that you are saying you want to connect USB. Nearly all computer ports are the SAME. [USB A]. Devices, on the other hand have maybe 6 connections. A very popular one is like a mini-usb. Look in the manual for what it says it is, take the camcorder with you when you exchange the cable.

I have acer aspire laptop computer model 3692WLM1 windows media center edition I wish to purchase a HP DESKJET D4200 series printer will this be compatable for my laptop

Hey doodee,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this model HP printer requires Windows 2000, Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional in order to function. Apart from the obvious cosmetic changes and some extra added functionality, Windows XP Media Center Edition may be treated as basic Windows XP in many instances. As such, this printer should be compatible with your computer. Please keep in mind however, that you may need to perform driver and software updates in order to guarantee functionality.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

What is in my comp usb 2.0? Ilink? usb interface? /

If this computer is running Windows, go to the control panel, click on the "system" icon, then click on "device manager".

That will tell you in detail what you have.

It's easier to tell from looking at the case.

You'll know if you have USB. If you're looking for iLink, it will be called "firewire".

If you want to make sure you have USB 2.0, it's probably USB 2.0 if the PC is 2-3 years old or newer.

I assume you're asking for this because you want to see if you move video to it? If you want to use iLink/Firewire, you can probably add an expansion card. Same for USB 2.0.
