USB will only transfer the still picture.
For video you require a firewire cable.
Please note the sockets on the computer as they can be 6 or 9 pin depending on make/model.
The camera will be 4 pin.

For Windows 7, Microsoft changed the game. They now require you to load new software to capture video from an older camcorder. Yes you do need to use the i.Link (Firewire) interface. I have had the best luck using the 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable.
Video capture is in the LIVE Photo Gallery part of Microsoft's suite of software. LIVE essentials

I am trying to connect my Sony DCR-TRV10E to my home computer via ilink-USB cable, but my computer does not recognize the Camcorder.... I guess this is due to missing drivers for Windows 7. Can anyone help...

USB and i.Link cables are not the same thing. What Sony call i.Link everyone else calls Firewire, DV or IEEE1394, and it is a different standard from USB with different connectors.

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. If you are trying to use a USB cable for video download, then it won't work for this camera. The driver is not the problem, this model is not on the Sony list of cameras that will download video over USB.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other. My camera came with the correct lead.

There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading at THIS LINK You will need to select Windows as the operating system, then Mini-DV as the camera type, then select the type of connection. As you will see, the USB option warns that it won't work with many Mini-DV cameras.

I am try to fix the cam with my pc pl tell us waht is required

You need a firewire cable and video editing software on your computer. Windows Moviemaker or Apple iMovie will edit the video, among others. There are two types of firewire ports, one is small and has 4 pins, and the other is larger and has 6 pins. Your camera has the 4 pin small plug and your computer will either have the 6 pin or the 4 pin, depending on the model and brand. Most desktops have the 6 pin, but some (particularly Sony) have the smaller 4 pin. Most laptops have the smaller 4 pin connector unless it is a Mac laptop it will have a 6 pin. So you will need a cable to fit both sides - 4 pin for the camera and either 4 or 6 pin for the computer.
Plug it in, put your camera in playback mode, start up your video software, and it should detect the camera and ask if you want to import the footage.

No one has given me a correct answer. I'm trying to get a video off my Sony Handycam and download it to my compuer. I have windows 7.


  • 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.
    1. Connect a Firewire cable to the DV port on the camcorder.
    2. Connect the other end of the i.LINK (firewire) 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.
    3. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
    4. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
    5. Turn on the computer. Your computer should recognize the camcorder and automatically install the driver it needs.
    6. Start the video capture software on the computer.
    7. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
    8. 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.
    Hope this helps you.

    Window 7 problem cannot detect my video cam

    After connecting the Camcorder to the Computer with the Firewire/i.LINK, turn ON the Camcorder.
    Keep the Camcorder in Playback mode.
    Start the Moviemaker Software which is pre-installed in the Windows.
    Check whether the Camcorder is recognized as the Video Device.

    If the Camcorder is not recognized, then check whether it works with other Computer or not.
    You may also try using a different i.LINK cable that is compatible with the Sony Camcorder.
    Sony Camcorder have 4 pin DV Interface and the Computers may have either 4pin or 6-pin i.LINK/Firewire port. So make sure that you are using the correct cable.

    Dear Sony camera user,
    Yes the Sony camera needs a driver in Windows PC's and no drivers are yet available for Win Vista or Win 7 PC user's.
    However if your camera has, and I am sure it has a Firewire cable (Plug marked with windmill marker) then you do not need a driver, just the cable to fit your camera to the Firewire port (Marked with windmill) on your PC.
    Your cable will be available from Sony, and Maplin Electrical, PC World and good camera shops at around £14.
    Good luck,
