Unfortunately, it's not exactly a trivial process. The basic steps are as follows:

1) connect the camcorder to the computer
2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer
3) optionally, edit the video file
4) upload the file from the computer to youtube.com

1) the camcorder has 4-pin 1394 (also called firewire or i-link) jack, and the computer (if equipped) either has 6-pin 1394 jack or 4-pin 1394 jack (on some notebooks). if your computer doesn't have a 1394 jack, you need to buy a 1394 adapter (eg. pricegrabber.com)

2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer hard drive using editing software or a software utility designed for doing just that. this software may come with the camcorder or the 1394 adapter.

3) optionally, use editing software to take an excerpt from the file, rearrange parts of the video, add titles, etc., and output a new file

4) upload the file to youtube.com. there are some guides on their website as well (eg. youtube.com)

I hope that helps.

SOURCE: Video capture problems

Sounds to me that the bit rate on your PC or capturing device is not as high as that now available through the firewire ports. Try increasing the bit rate in your settings and see if that helps. Or have you always used firewire?

SOURCE: Sony DCR-HC52E connected with Firewire not detected in moviemaker

The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a Panasonic NV GX7B and want to upload my movies on to my computer. I have a USB driver (VFF0155) disc which came with the camera and a VFA0363 cable to connect the camera to the computer, is this...


The USB VFA0363 is for transferring still photos, and cannot be used to transfer video. You need a 1394 cable (also called a "Firewire" cable). You also need a Firewire/1394 card in your computer. The 1394 cable can be purchased with either 4-pin or 6-pin connectors on either end. You will need a 4-pin connector on the end that plugs into the camera, and either a 6-pin or 4-pin connector on the other end depending on whether you have the large or small connector on your computer. The owners manual for your camcorder can be found here:

Where can you bay usb cable for panasonc ds 55 camcorder to connect to pc.


This camera downloads video over a Firewire (DV, IEEE1394) connection. Some mini-DV cameras have a USB connection but it is usually used only for stills. This camera doesn't have a USB connection at all.

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. However, while most PCs have a USB port, they seldom have a 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.

How to connect to a pc, which cable is needed


This type of camera usually downloads 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. 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.

I'm looking for the driver of sony handycam CDR-TRV22E so that i can transfer the video to my pc. thanx.


You can download drivers and manual for this camera from this page.

Advice on how to do the transfer is on this page. (You need to select Mini DV)

Sony recommend using Firewire instead of USB to transfer video from this type of camera.

This camera has both USB and Firewire (DV) connections. 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. The USB cable is less standard at the camera end, so search for one that is compatible with your camera.

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.

What kind of cable do i need to use from camcorder jvc gr-d33u to pc?


This camera cannot send video to most PCs. It doesn't have a USB connector. There is something called a DV connector, but it is very unlikely that your computer has this. This is also called a Firewire connector and can often be found on the Apple Mac.

You can get an add-on PC card to fit Firewire connections to a PC. If you do this, you will need software (supposed to have come with the computer or you can use third party software) to do the transfers, and a cable JVC VC-VDV206U. This is however just a normal Firewire cable- though you want to be sure that you get the kind with a small connector at one end for the camera and a larger connector at the other (six pin) for the computer.

The usb connector on my 500 gb seagate mseries is broken however i noticed that i can remove a plate on the bottom and replace the part my question is where can i get this part


There are 2 other solutions to this problem.
First way is to find someone that has the other module P/N 100452909 Dual FireWire 400 and use FireWire instead.
Second is to pry open the USB module and have the USB connector re-soldered or replaced. The connector is similar to many of the smart phones, so a cell phone repair shop could probably replace it. Heck you might even have the connector replaced with the newer Micro USB connector or ask them to solder the USB wire direct to the interface board.
