Hi

most camcoders do have a USB connectivity cable and using this connect the camcoder to the PC

once connected u will need to install the required drivers for the Camcoder to be recognised by the PC (this is a one time process)

then the firmware with the Camcoder will also provide u with some basic recording software u may install that too and then go to the starting of the tape (rewind on camcoder) and play and at that point in time click on the record button on the software installed on the PC

hope this helps
Cheers

Video tape will not load to PC when I connect USB from camera to PC only memory will load not video please help. I need to complete editing for Film and Television assignment. My PC is a Mac Pro Thanks...


You don't say what make/model your camera is. Most tape based camcorders (mini-dv) usually download better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB.

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.

How do you load from movie camera so you can take sceens out before downloading to disc. I have filmed straight to disc and have to put all the tape on the disc. Want to be able to edit sceens I dont want...


Hello,

You can try downloading the video directly on your PC by using the USB plug supplied when you bought your digital camera. Most of this now are plug and play so you don't have to install any driver.

If you need more information, please do not hesitate to comment back.

Cannot film


  Dear carooooo, You are dealing with tape not film. Your problem might be in your tape.   Try running your tape on record the full length. Keep your lens cap on. Color balance and use new tape that's for your Sony.         jameskeyboar.
