I have a SONY handycam DCR HC 46E. I am unable to transfer video from Mini DV cassettes to my PC(with windows 7 ultimate 32). I have also downloaded and installed PMB. With that I am able to transfer...


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring videos from the Camcorder to the Windows 7 Operating System. The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available for Windows 7 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 7 Operating System. If your computer does not have the i.LINK port, you may purchase an i.LINK capture card to resolve the issue.

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.

i.LINK Cable.

i.LINK port.

  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.


Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

I have sondy handycam hc-36e but while runing the picture package showing error " to run this application, you need to install macromedia flash player first"


If Macromedia Flash Player 8 is installed on a computer where no previous versions of the Macromedia Flash Player have been installed, then the Picture Package Menu option may be unable to start. To resolve this issue, download and install the Picture Package Menu update from the Picture Package Web site at: http://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/www/disoft/int/pixela/picpac/dl/dl_ppk_menu1x.html
The issue should be resolved.

Hi Heart of Chr....

Here is the USB driver for your Sony Handycam DCR-HC52e:

http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/Video%20Camera/Sony/Sony_DCR-HC21_xp_driver_needed.files.hidden/USBDRVEN.EXE

The Firewire driver is already bundled with Windows XP.

Software for viewing, editing and transferring:
DCRHC52 is compatible with Windows Movie Maker & Apple iMovie,meaning you can usually begin editing your footage straight away usingthe software already installed on your PC.

Hope this helps :)
Season's Greetings!
