HDMI will only support video & audio not data transfer. It is not like USB or firewire. The HDMI port on both you laptop and the camcorder allow you to connect these devices to a HD TV or monitor thats all I'm afraid

How to connect acer aspire 5315 to LG led tv

Acer Aspire 5315 doesn't come with an HDMI port. So, you have the following options:
1. Use a VGA Cable to connect the PC to TV if the TV has PC-Input facility
2. Use an S-Video cable to the TV's S-Video-in port if the TV has it

3. Use and S-Video to HDMI converter if the TV has HDMI port
for audio, you can use 3.5mm to RCA (Red/White) connector to connect to TV's audio-in port.

Will a sony HDR-SR10E camcorder support a firewire IEEE 1394 cable

No, sorry but this cam doesn't have FW port...
if it is for access to your records for editing, use USB
If it is for streaming, broadcasting or recording on a PC, use the HDMI output and HDMI capture card...
that's all...

What kind of parts connect to connector2?

For this laptop?

Right side of the laptop? 4th and 5th port back from the Front?
They are USB ports. A USB cable plugs into them.

Left side of the laptop? 2nd port back from the Front?
It is an HDMI port. An HDMI cable plugs into it,

Plug an HDMI cable into it, then to an HDMI port on an HDTV that has this port.
X-Box, PlayStation, and Wi uses an HDMI cable, and plugs to this port on the laptop.
Just some of the uses.

How to connect blu ray player hdmi to my laptop

1) Look at your laptop computer to see if you have an HDMI cable port. This port is roughly half an inch wide and provides both the HD audio and video signal. If you don't, you are going to use a DVI port on the laptop. This is the same port you use to connect monitors to your computer.

2) Plug the DVI-to-HDMI adapter into the DVI port on the laptop with the Blu-ray player. If you have an HDMI port on your laptop, you can skip this step.

3) Connect an HDMI cable to the HDMI end of the adapter. If you have an HDMI port, plug the cable directly into the HDMI port.

4) Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the HD television. Power on your television, press the "Input" button and select "HDMI." You can now see the contents from your Blu-ray player on the TV.

Thanks for rating

Good luck

Cant connect laptop to tv


If you're using a newer laptop look for either a HDMI (looks like elongated USB port) port or a DVI (a female port similar to a serial port but wider. Usually a white) port on the back/sides of your laptop.

If it's an older one, Look for an SD port (Resembles a PS/2 port which you plug the mouse in).

That being said, your TV must be able to pair with one of the above ports.

HDMI -> HDMI (using a HDMI cable)
SD cable usually splits into three, Red, Yellow and White pins. Two for the LEFT and RIGHT audio channel and the other is for the video.

You might also be able to find converters from one format to another.

Hope this helps.

How do I connect my laptop to tv to use as monitor

It depends on the laptop and the TV. If both have a VGA port, then use a VGA cable between them. Make sure the VGA port is enabled on the computer (possibly in the BIOS) and then set the monitor properties. You may need to reboot the computer to get the TV on.

If the TV has HDMI input and the laptop also has an HDMI port then you need to check the TV specs. Some HDMI ports can accept a signal from a computer (often labeled HDMI/DVI) and others don't. If the HDMI port is compatible with a computer source, then use an HDMI cable between the two. Again make sure the port is active. If TV's HDMI port is not compatible with the computer, you will need a converter.

If the TV doesn't have a VGA port (and the laptop doesn't have any video port other than VGA), then you will need a VGA to component video converter (or VGA to composite video) depending on the inputs of the TV. See for some converters.

Note: the converters are needed since computers output in a different format than the TV input understands. For analog, the computer is RGB and the component video is YPbPr.

A few media PCs might have a TV out port. This would eliminate the need for a converter. Check the specs for the cable you need.

I hope this helps.

Movie transfer

hey emron,

this usually happens if you dont have a driver for that cam in your laptop. as long as your laptop doesnt recognize you cam, try jumping from one usb port to another. when the new hardware wizard appears, this will help you to connect that to your system.
