I have sony trv33 and windows 7 using firewire 1394 port and cable computer does not recognise camcorder when turned on

Your camera will not be recognized when you connect it via firewire. To transfer the video from your camera to your computer you will need a video editing program that is able to capture video from camcorders connected via firewire.
You can try Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7. Alternatively your can search through the internet to find a more advanced video editing software.

PC won't recognise camera.

sir, before you proceed with connecting your device be sure you installed the cd driver camed with your camcorder. this driver will recognise your camcorder to your pc and can use it with your video editing software. By the way i have a camcorder too and im using Ulead video studio or any Ulead software. Why am i using that? because its very easy to use and its not that complicated on editing. Windows Movie maker is also good but i really prefer on using Ulead. Hope that helps you and thank you for rating my suggestion.

Thank you for using fixya

Laptop does not recognize my mini dv camcorder

You need a video editing program to see it. Pinnacle studio works with your camcorder.

Software Go to this site for your manual. Look up video editing in the menu. You need a firewire connection to get digital video (DV) out and into a computer. If you are using XP with service pack 2 upgrade, you need to go to microsoft support and download 885222, a fix for the fact that SP2 screwed up camcorder recognition on firewire. and if that doesn't work, you can download 322756 and read how to install a registry fix manually. And if that doesn't work, I would forget about video editing and take up surfboarding Dr. dixie

Camcorders problems

It seems you've tried some of the steps I would suggest already. However, to avoid any confusion I'll mention them anyway:

-When you connect a camcorder using DV cables, you have to use the playback mode rather than the PC Connect mode. The firewire connection is a p2p interface for streaming.

-The camcorder sometimes does not show up under "My Computer" when using DV connections as no removable drive needs to be installed. In this case, the camcorder may still be recognized and you should use the "capture" feature of whichever software you prefer.

-Most camcorders require that the AC adapter cable be used during capture operations for various reasons. If you are not connected to AC power, this could halt some functionality.

-Generally camcorders require a cable and IEEE1394 card that are OHCI compliant. Very rare you would find any that aren't, but it may be worth checking into if you're still having issues.

-Obviously, as you've mentioned, checking the device manager and BIOS configurations to ensure your hardware is operating properly was a good call.
