I purchased a Pinnacle Dazzle to connect my Sony DCR-HC38 to my computer. I do not know how to connect the camcorder to the Dazzle device.

Sony DCR-HC38E should have an interface called 1394, or the firewire. so you need to use a FireWire cable to connect it to your computer's firewire interface, some laptops have it built-in, If you don't have one on your computer, you can either purchase a IEEE1394/FireWire adapter, which should be under 100 or even $50.
Connector Type1.0 x Composite video/audio output , 1.0 x S-Video output , 1.0 x USB , IEEE 1394 (FireWire/i.LINK)

Price vx2100

The Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100 costs around $1,500-$3,000 depending on where you manage to purchase it. There are some resellers who are selling the camera for around $2,800 (including shipping and taxes) while at the same time, you can buy a brand new one from Amazon for $4,000. There's a seller on Amazon that is selling one for $1,200. The price varies greatly because of the camera model is a few years old.

I want to transfer the film taken by DCR-CH52E to computer, is there any one knows the solution? if so please let me know. thank you in advance. regrads

your unit doesnt have usb streaming feature (reason it doesnt have a usb jack). connection would have to go thru ilink (ieee1394) connection. that's the dv interface located left side at the bottom of the battery. it's a plug-and-play basically you need an ieee1394 card installed in your computer to support connection (refer to computer manufacturer), an ieee1394 cable compatible for both your computer and camcorder (uses 4 pin cable), and a video capturing software like moviemaker (for windows) and imovie (for mac).if you have that then your good to go. hope this helps. thanks:)

Recording onto a mini dv tape from Mac computer Via firewire

I have successfully recorded to a mini Dv tape from my computer however I connected my PC to the VX2100 using the RCA inputs. I have an adapter that I purchased from best buy that provides the RCA input/output. If your able to connect that make sure to...

1. Turn you VX2100 to Play/Edit mode (not camera mode)
2. Insure the program on your mac has an external output otherwise you won't be able to record.
3. See if your video editing software (if your using one) has an option for record to tape or to camera. I use Vegas Studio and it has an option for that.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!
