Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.

Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.

How to transfer from tape to laptop?

As the camera uses miniDv for video capturing , it need to be converted in to digital format through a "firewire card". a Fire wire card is a PCI Card for data transfer. Check whether your system is having the same. If not, you have to buy one. In addtion to that you need a video captutirng software like "Sony Vegas" or "Pinnacle Studio."

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

Sc-d353 video transfer from Mini dv to computer

In order to transfer the taped video, the software that came with the camera, has to be installed. Once this is done, plug your camera into the computer, using the USB cord, and it should be recognized, and the software program should kick in and you can then transfer the files. Sometimes you will have to go to the actual drive itself and copy the images over to your folder of choice.

Transfer video from tape to computer


You will need a firewire cable to successfully transfer video from your tape to your computer. It also greatly helps to have a firewire port on your computer. Once you have connected your firewire port on your camera to the firewire port on your computer, you can use windows movie maker to transfer video to your computer. (File > Import for Digital Video Camera)

If this has helped you, please report this problem as fixed :)
