DCR-PC330E to MacBook Pro

Trying to get my 'old' tapes into my MacBook Pro (OSX.5.6) via a Sony Handycam DCR-PC330E through usb-cable, but my mac only recognizes the memory-stick. In iMovie (7.1.4) I cannot select the cam, it's just iSight. Please help!

Hi, I'm wondering if you can help, I have a Sony DCR-TRV340E camcorder and wish to take the video footage from one of the tapes and record/stream it onto my MacBook pro. I've tried using the USB cable...


*reason for not streaming the video: its because you're using the wrong type of cable to stream it to a macbook

*type of cable needed: you need a firewire cable to stream videos from your camcorder to your macbook.

*please make sure to check if your macbook has a firewire(IEEE) port on it and also make sure what type of firewire port it has( 4 pin or 6 pin firewire port)


*check your macbook specification for a firewire port and make sure to check how mny pinslot it has before buying a firewire cable.

* the other end of a firewire cable would surely fit the camcorder and the other end would depend on the firewire port available in your macbook.

* you would also be needing an application on your macbook that would record streamed videos.

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:)

Cannot connect to Computer


Turn off computer. Turn ON computer and immediately hold down Apple+option+p+r. after 4 chimes let go. You are going to be using the Firewire cable. once the camera is on and plugged into computer go to : apple> about this mac> more info click on Firewire. on the right hand side you should see your camera. Now if you don't its either the Firewire port on camera or the cable it self. to further isolate. Get your older computer. leave off. plug the firewire cable into both computers. Now the older computer that is turned off. TURN ON and immediately hold down the " T " on keyboard. ON the polder mac, your screen with have like a "Y" icon.. its a Firewire icon. Now look on the other computers desktop, do you see a yellow or blue hard drive on desktop. IF you do.. ITS your camera because we just tested your cable and both ports and they are working. Now try the USB cable and see if its detected by computer by going back to Apple system profiler and see if the computer is detecting it

Get video off Sony Handycam DCR-TRV118 Hi8 to PC or Mac


Hi There,

MisterSony is quite correct about the Capture card.

While most computers have the built-in ability to capture sound via the 'Line In' port, digitally recording the Video signal is a totally different aspect.

Certain TV Tuner cards also have Video Capture abilities (in addition to the tuner they have a VCR input). They often work in tandem with your Video Display card via the 'Feature' connector.

Both types allow the incoming signal to be displayed and recorded digitally at your choice of speeds, resolutions and formats.
My preferences in the past have been the VideoBlaster line by Creative Labs. There are many others.

I'll do a little research as to what's currently out there and post my findings directly.

Mike

This is not a monster you wanna open and play with as I've seen this puppy and its loaded with flex cables connecting all the differant pcb's together. You wanna take this or send out to a camcorder specialist please. You also need a special set of these cables to work on this unit as well as a few special service jigs. Good Luck
