Sony HDR-SR5 Colours reversed on pc

I recently brought a Sony HDR-SR5 which works great, but when I uploaded the videos to my PC the colours were reversed, I copyed the same video to my laptop which runs on vista and it was fine, I also ran it off my TV and the picture was fine. The only differnce is that I installed the Sony HDR veiwing software on my pc but not on my laptop.

Hi There,

MisterSony is quite correct about the Capture card.

While most computers have the built-in ability to capture sound via the 'Line In' port, digitally recording the Video signal is a totally different aspect.

Certain TV Tuner cards also have Video Capture abilities (in addition to the tuner they have a VCR input). They often work in tandem with your Video Display card via the 'Feature' connector.

Both types allow the incoming signal to be displayed and recorded digitally at your choice of speeds, resolutions and formats.
My preferences in the past have been the VideoBlaster line by Creative Labs. There are many others.

I'll do a little research as to what's currently out there and post my findings directly.

Which software package are you using? My brother was able to solve the HD capture problem by using Adobe After Effects.

I searched under HDR-HC3 firewire driver and got the above link.

It says the following:


The problem was a missing MSDV.SYS file.

Actually, on the Sony site it says that no additional drivers are required to connect the camera in Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

But, the user of this camera and firewire noted that he was having trouble convincing windows of this.
Another link that talks about the firewire problem follows:
You can find more links by searching under 'HDR-HC3 firewire driver' or related searches to find the solution to your problem.

I hope this helps.
