If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorderdoes not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use ani.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port isalso called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shapedconnector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend onthe i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pini.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you mayhave to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

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.

NOTE:Asthe Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it isnot required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video tothe Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sonyto transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer usingthe i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Applicable for Windows XP Operating System:

If youare using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USBStreaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk withthe Computer.

Check this link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Using sony dcr-sr36 as a webcam


Unfortunately is not possible directly - Your cam do not support USB streaming... But You may use any cheap video capture device like Pinnacle Studio movie box or similar to connect Your camera via S-video cable because Your camera has an analog output. Only one requirement - the capture card must have an S-video input or simply RCA video input. It's easy - connect video out and audio out of Your cam to the capture device and then connect USB of capture device to Your computer.
Good luck!

How can i transfer videos from DCR-TRv 460E TOCOMPUTER


It is very simple. Install a Firewire (IEEE1394) card in PCI slot (if you don't have any video capture card) and connect DCR460E camcorder to PC through iLink cable. You need a video editing software like Ulead Video studio, Pinnacle studio or any other to be installed in your PC. Then go to capture mode of that programme and capture transfer video to PC hard disk. Windows movie maker is also do the same. For editing and better special effects you should use hihger versions of ulead or pinnacle. Thank you.

DCR-TRV350 Sony Handycam won't load pictures to Vista


You need to purchase a video editing software program. If you have a usb or dv port on your computer you will need a firewire card on your computer or a spare usb port.

Pinnacle Studio will work with Vista. Once the software is installed and the camera is tuned on, A dialog box will appear asking to run Pinnacle Studio. Go into capture mode to copy the video to your hard drive.
