Question about Video Cameras

1 Answer

Shot video as always. But today cannot get camera and computer to link. When I plug in camera with fire wire, I hear the typical tones that mean something has been connected, but the camera does not go into download mode nor can I see the camera on the ''My Computer'' screen. Never had this issue before - need help figuring out what I'm doing wrong

The Camcorder will not listed in the My Computer window.

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.

How do I connect a camera to my pavilion n5430?


Follow these steps :
1

Identify the ports you have on your computer and video camera. Typically there will be a small door or flap at the rear or near the bottom that covers the ports. You computer may have ports in the front as well as the rear. You video camera may have more than one of these ports and may not have all of them.
2
Find the i.LINK port. i.LINK is
version of IEEE-1394 standard (aka) Firewire. It is commonly found on DV (Digital Video) varieties of camcorders. You may find the smaller 4 pin connector on your camera if it is a compact video camera. Typically the larger 6 pin variety is found on computers and larger camcorders. i.LINK transfers both video and audio. For more information click on "How i.LINK Works" in the Resources section.
3
Find the USB port. USB (Universal Serial Bus) is another connector like i.LINK for transferring digital video and audio. Typically a mini USB connector such as the "Mini-A" will be found on your camcorder than large flat "Type A" connector typically found on computers.
4
Locate the S-Video jack. The S-Video jack is a round 4 pin analog connector. S-Video is for only video transmission. You will need to connect the red and white audio RCA jacks or use a phono port to transfer the audio to your computer.
5
Find RCA Audio/Video Jacks. These round single pin ports usually are found in a set of three of different colors. Yellow is video, red is for right audio, and white is for left audio. On some Handycam's, there may be a mini-plug that is an all in one Audio/Video jack that you plug in a special cable (as seen in the photo) that connects your camera to standard yellow, red, and white RCA jacks on your computer.
6
Choose a matching pair of ports you have on both your computer and your camcorder.
7
Turn both your computer and camcorder off.
8
Connect your computer and camcorder with the appropriate cable. Turn on both your camcorder and your computer.

Can hdc-tm20 connect a firewire cable?


From what I have heard this camera has no firewire, but it has USB download to PC and AV sockets, I hear that a new version soon will carry the firewire mode as I like many other camera user's do find that the firewire to PC connection is the best, but saying that if you record on the flash mem mostly you can plug that card into the latest PC's anyway, if you can do that then it will be very high def movies indeed.
I would not like to use a USB download cable as you will find picture suffers badly.

I own a sony cybershot S650, After recording a video when i play it , i cannt hear any audio - after connecting it to the tv i can hear audio too. plz tell me how to enable audio on my camera.


Hello,
It seems to me that if you can hear audio on TV, that means the microphone is functioning correctly. As to hearing audio from the camera I am not sure whether you can do that. Does the camera have an ear-plug to connect an external headset?

Hope it helps.

There are pink tones in pictures Help!


Generally, if you get a pinkish tone with low contrast, it means that your sensor in the camera is shot and will either need to be fixed by a professional or replacement of the camera itself. You'll sometimes also see stripes in the images as well that can alternate dark and light.

Copy from camera to computer


Do you have a video/tuner card that can receive a video input? With ** av in, or firewire on your computer, you can't without purchasing additional hardware.

Usb cable


try to plug your wire at the back panel of your desktop (not in the front USB Port) and if it still doesn't work, the cable would be either of inferior quality or could be having manufacturing fault. please check with alternate cable as well.

How do I downloard pics from my Samsung SC-D6550 Camcorder?


Are you using a Video Camera? If so, you need a Fire Wire cable, not a USB cable. You can get Fire Wire Cables at Radio Shack or any store that sells electronics.
