Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV720 Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-TRV720 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder. How can I transfer the video from these tapes to DVD? The cabling seems too old school to link up to my computer in order to burn a DVD.

This model has iLink: IEEE 1394 firewire port. If you don't have a firewire card, you can probably find one pretty cheap on the internet (try ebay).
Windows has movie maker, which when the camera is connected, will allow you to capture the video from the camera on the comptuer, although there is no DVD burner software at least on the XP version (not sure about Vista). I use Nero for the whole process: capture, edit, burn to DVD.

Do you have another video camera that will hook up to your computer? In the past, I've connected my old Hi-8 to my Mini DV, recorded the footage from the Hi-8 to the Mini DV and then digitized on the computer from the Mini DV.

Sony handycam digita8 iwant to use memory chip replase memory tep?


Here is Sony's page for the product: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=DCRTRV280&template_id=1&region_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab
I don't see where it has support for any memory card format. If you can find any slots built into the machine, upload a picture and we could probably tell you what they are, but from what I've read, you're either using the digital 8 tape, or you're streaming over USB to a computer.

I don't know about the PAL version, but the NTSC version does. It automatically detects the type of tape and adjusts.
