    Does the camera power on okay, and are you powering it on when connecting?

Some times software get corrupted or damaged during the use. If it is the case with your cam, the computer will not recognize the device when it is connected. Try Reinstalling the software in to the lap top.

How do i get the video from my dcr-trv33 onto my computer


Connect to the PC with a firewire cable see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE1394
Your PC will recognise and install the camera when the camera is connected and turned on in playback mode. You can then use Windows Movie Maker ( part of the Windows XP operating system; find it in Start/All Programs) to capture video from the camera onto your PC. The camera can be controlled from your PC screen ( no need to press any buttons on the camera!)

I have sony trv33 and windows 7 using firewire 1394 port and cable computer does not recognise camcorder when turned on


Hi,
Your camera will not be recognized when you connect it via firewire. To transfer the video from your camera to your computer you will need a video editing program that is able to capture video from camcorders connected via firewire.
You can try Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7. Alternatively your can search through the internet to find a more advanced video editing software.

Can't import vob files into windows movie maker


To use Vob files with movie maker, they need to be converted first. This can take a little while, but there is no other way, as windows doesn support dvd playback by default, and whilst codecs will give you playback, movie maker will not accept them, even with the codecs. To convert your vob files to "avi" (the format needed for movie maker) yoou will need converting software. Most of this is very expensive, but thankfully, one of the best is actually free! It's name is "super" and it can be found at the following web address http://www.erightsoft.com/S6Kg1.html
By the way, the download link is at the bottom of the page.

Can not import video from camera to moviemaker


Hi there. You can't import the video because your camera records and puts out video in mpeg2 format. Windows Movie Maker will not read that format. But...good news! - Here are two things you can do to work around that problem.

1. Use the software that came with the camera to capture the video and import the resulting file into Movie Maker. OR
2. Connect your camera to your computer using an analog connection (like S-video cable) and capture the video using Movie Maker.

That will fix your problem. Thanks for coming to FixYa. Let me know if you have any other questions and if you're satisfied with my solution, don't forget to rate it a fixya.

How to download video from digital video camera to laptop


First, you need a program on your computer that searches for connected digital video devices. Like Windows Movie Maker! Look for Windows Movie Maker on your laptop. If found, bring it up and there should be a task panel on the left side. Near the top, there should be something that says "Capture from video device". (Or something close to that.) Click on it and Windows Movie Maker will search for connected video devices. It should find you camera and will show you what you need to do. (Make sure your camera is turned on play mode.) Windows Movie Maker is a very easy to use program and allows you to add music, transitions and all kinds of cool effects to your videos. If you have any questions, please ask.
