Question about Video Cameras
I am trying to download footage(on tape) from my sony handycam DCR-HC47 on to my Dell PC.
I have imported the sony software but when I try to import footage the software says it can not find the device and sugests that it is not pluged in and to check the i link cable
I am using the usb cable but also have a fire wire cable however there does not appear to be a place to plug the fire wire in on my tower.
I did manage to view the footage in another program called roxy but when I tried to capture it there was a unknown capture error and the saved file was blank ever time I tried it.
I bought this computer last month so that I could edit video and I am not happy that there is no fire wire/i cable plug.
I have to show my film at the tate moden on the 24.11.07 so time is deffinately a factor.
I am prepared to buy an editing program but want to make sure I get the right set up.
looking forward to some answers please help a frustrated artist!!!
Sony does not support older camcorders that worked with USB on XP but no longer work with either firewire or USB on Vista. The work around I've used on Vista is to only install the Sony driver which is available from http://support.sony-europe.com/dime/downloads/downloads.aspx?&f=usbdrven_vista&site=odw_en_GB You only need the Sony driver to use another programme to capture the video. FX Vidcap works well on Vista via USB. http://www.jhepple.com/video_capture_software.htm
