My camcorder won't work with our apple mac g5-cs3 computer


The problem is not with the camcorder. The problem is with the capture settings.
You can capture video via firewire or USB. Imovie has a capture mode that syncs with nearly any camcorder. Roxio Toast will also sync with a camcorder. Be sure the camcorder is connected and that the computer recognizes it. It may take a few on-off cycles to sync itt.

Hi, I am having Sony DCR TRV22E Camcorder, and installing the driver given with it on Windows 7, but the driver given in the CD is not allowed to install on Windows 7 OS, what is the solution for this ?...


You don't need to install a driver. You should be able to connect the camcorder, using a Firewire/1394 cable, and Windows 7 should recognize it. All versions of Windows since Windows 98 can recognize DV video camcorders. I have a very similar (although USA version) Sony camcorder and I have connected it to over a dozen different Windows computers without ever installing a driver.

Now, while you don't need a driver, you DO need a capture program (an application) to actually do the video capture. Most versions of Windows include

Windows Movie Maker

and this can be used to do the capture. I also highly recommend the shareware program called:

Scenalyzer

which you can download and try for free.

I have a Canon 7.4V video camera and want to connect my camera to the computer. How do I do that?


Instructions:
  1. Connect an i.LINK (firewire) cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.
  2. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer. NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
  3. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  4. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  5. Turn on the computer. Your computer should recognize your camcorder and automatically install the needed driver.
  6. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  7. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  8. Begin importing the video with the capture software. It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.
Hope this has helped you.

How do I transfer recordings from tape to dvd?


If this is a Dig8 camcorder, it should have a DV jack. From this, you can use an iLink cable (firewire cable) to plug it directly into your computer. If you have a DVD burner on your computer, this should work for you.

Instructions:
  1. Connect an i.LINK (firewire) cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.
  2. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer. NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
  3. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  4. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  5. Turn on the computer. Your computer should recognize your camcorder and automatically install the needed driver.
  6. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  7. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  8. Begin importing the video with the capture software. It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.

    Canon hv30 is't being recognized on my vista computer


    You may have used a different USB port on the computer. Try a different one.
    Generally, any USB port would work, except that some devices create a "Virtual USB" connection that is configured with a specific USB port.
