No sound when capturing video from Handycam to computer

Hi, when I transfer video from my handycam to my PC (using Imagemixer) the video produces no sound. The video is fine, I have my speakers turned on and all other audio/video files on the computer work, even within the same program. I noticed that when the video is playing in capture mode the only sound comes from the handycam and not in the computer (while the actual video is in both), although I don't know if this is normal. I tried changing some menu settings such as AV/DV out but that didn't work. Please help! I am transferring video from a canon camcorder to DVD using a Sony mc5 dvdirect. I get picture, but no sound. I am using an s cable to transfer the video.

There is no sound carrier on an S video connection. It's Video only. use the AV left and right cables for the sound. It is normal not to monitor audio when capturing.

We want softwear to capturing the vedio from sony700x handycam to my laptop


By using a video camera, you can capture life's important events in all its movement, color and sound. Sony's entry into this recording arena is with the Handycam series, which started with tape storage before progressing to hard disk and Mini DV formats. One hallmark of this device is the ability to quickly transfer recordings from camera to PC using the PC operating system and without the need of an external capture program. Instructions
  1. Turn off the camcorder before connecting it to the PC using the included USB.
  2. Turn on the camcorder and open the flip-out screen. The USB Select screen appears. Tap Computer on the screen.
  3. Double-click the My Computer icon on your PC desktop. The My Computer window opens to reveal the camcorder as a new storage device. If the camcorder is not appearing as an icon, try turning it on and off and selecting Computer on the flip-out screen once more.
  4. Double-click the Camcorder icon to open it. A list of stored videos appears. Click to select the video that you want to transfer.
  5. Press the Ctrl and C keys to copy the video.
  6. Use My Computer on your PC to browse to the folder in which you want to store the copy. (If needed, create a new folder.) Double-click the folder to open it.
  7. Press the Ctrl and V keys to paste the copied video into the folder. If needed, right-click the video and choose Rename to give the video a more meaningful name.

Hi All, I have DCR-TRV238E Digital 8 Handycam... I want to transfer the recorded video to my computer... Can you please tell me where i can download the software to upload the video on to my computer...

All of pre-HDD cam does have FireWire port somewhere in it (or at the docking station in case of SONY's)

In order to capture the footage from the cam to your PC,you need the Firewire card and the cable.Should be available at any computer hardware store.All you have to do is to install the card to your PC,connect your cam to your computer via the cable,then capture the video by your favorite video editing software.

Yes,that sounds a bit more difficult than drag-and-drop work in USB-connection camera,but not too difficult to understand,of course.

Filming transfer

Several steps are involved. You will need a firewire or USB cord to connect your camera to your computer. You will need a video capture application on your PC. Macs come with this program, I-Movie. Once captured, the movies can be edited. Your PC will need a combination drive to burn a DVD from the captured material. An easier way: Take your camera output and feed it directly into a DVD recorder. No editing, but it is a one-step process. I use both methods.

Computer mode

hi follow this steps: Make sure that you have installed the USB driver for the handycam. You can download the drivers from this link: Sony Asia Pacific Support Website--Download Page for HC40E USB Driver for Windows. Connect the handycam to the AC adaptor (the same as putting it on charge). Set the handycam to USB stream mode. (Press P-menu, press MENU, Press EDIT/PLAY, Press USB MODE, Press USB Stream.) Set the tape at the point from where you want to start capturing in PC. Connect the handycam and the PC with the USB cable. (USB-Mode appears on the handycam LCD / viewfinder.) Start Windows Movie Maker. Click on the 'Capture..' link to start the wizard. Select the Sony Digital Imaging Device. Click Next. Specify the file name and path for the capture video. Click Next. Select the desired capture format and Click Next. (Leave it to recommended setting if you are not sure.) The dialog box now displays the Start Capture and End Capture buttons on the left and preview window on the right. Play the tape on the handycam. The video from handycam should appear in the preview window of WMM. Click the Start Capture button to start capturing the video. Click End Capture to pause or stop recording. Click the Finish button. The .wmv file will be saved in the path specified in step 7.

I have no sound on my sony handycam

Sony got back to me with the answer, so I will post it here for future reference.
If there is no audio when USB streaming with PIXELA ImageMixer version 1.5 software on the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, change the USB capture device setting for sound to USB Audio Device. In the Image Mixer Tool settings, confirm the USB Capture Device settings are set for an available USB Audio Device. This setting is not defaulted to the USB streaming mode.

This would be the icon of an open end wrench in the top right hand corner of the capture environment screen.

Follow this procedure to change the USB capture device setting for sound in the Pixela ImageMixer 1.5 software.

1. In the ImageMixer window, click the USB Device Capture icon.

2. Click the Preferences icon.

3. In the Capturing/Recording Preferences window, in the USB Capture Device Setting section, click the down arrow to select the desired sound device.

4. Click the OK button.

For any request for processing or editing assistance you may visit the PIXELA help file. You may also contact them at the following website:
