Unfortunately dv or also called mini firewire is a firewire cable. There is no mini to USB cable out there. On the other hand it is very inexpensive to add a firewire card to your computer if you have any available expansion ports. here's an example on Amazon but you can find them much cheaper if you look around;

This is a Firewire cable, also known as DV or IEEE 1394. Sony call it i.Link. It is not compatible with USB and you cannot get a lead to connect it to a USB port. There are converter/adapters that are supposed to allow Firewire to connect to USB but many forum posts say they do NOT work for video transfer. Unfortunately, most Mini-DV cameras will not transfer video by USB cable, even when they have a USB connection (it is usually only used for still pictures).

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you had a desktop PC, you could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to the expansion bus. This will come with a driver for the card.

I have a Samsung Mini-DV, and do transfers with it to the one computer I have that has a Firewire port. It is the only thing I use that computer for, and the reason I haven't thrown it out.

I have a Samsung DV-D381 MINI Camcorder. What


OK there are NO cables as such for that PC, as of normal, to get Video into this machine you will have to use either, a USB TV/Video card, and use the AV inputs. OR put a Video TV/Video Capture card into a PCI slot, and again use the AV inputs to connect via. The you will have to use the AV leads Yellow, Red & White, OR the SVHS port if available. You will also need software to record the video stream, If you camera has FireWire then you could install a FireWire Card into a PCI slot and hook you via that, you will still have to use software though. Sometimes the camera, has proprietary software to edit and work with the Video from the camera, usually via FireWire. To get said software go to the manufacturers web site, and download a copy.

How do i transfer from my vp-d381i to my pc in order to burn them onto a disc?


Connecting to a PC
If you want to transmit data to a PC, you must install an IEEE 1394 add-on card into the PC. (not supplied)
The frame rate for moving images is dependent on the capacity of the PC.

This is straight from manual

You can get the card here.

I want to copy video footage from the tape to the sd card.


Hi!
You cannot transfer the video from Mini-DV to SD card within your camera as your camcorder does not have this feature. If your purpose for finding this function is to transfer your footage to your computer, you may try using the firewire port in your camera to connect it to your pc.
If you need help with the firewire connection, feel free to post a follow up.
Hope this helps!

I am trying to find a way to transfer my video from samsung digital cam. sc-dc164 to my computer so i can edit and make dvds. .


Make sure you have a firewire port on your computer. If not, go out and buy a firewire card. Then purchase a firewire cord. plug your camera into the firewire port using the firewire cord, boot up your video editing software (I use Adobe Premiere, personally. Final Cut Pro is the best to use if you're running a Mac), and capture your footage. Edit your footage if you'd like and all that stuff, and then export the video to your desktop. You'll then have the same quality of what you shot in one file.
