Using USB with a miniDV camera will only allow still picture transfer.
You will have to use an appropriate Firewire cable to capture any video from the tape.

If you captured to MiniDV you do not need to install the Image Mixer software.
Hook your camera up to the computer via Firewire (not USB) and use video editing software to "capture" the video. The capture process basically plays back your video in real-time and sends it to your hard drive. You'll need a lot of hard drive space available for this, though. 1 hour of MiniDV video is equal to 13GBs of hard drive space. So you may want to also get a fast external hard drive.
For a free video editing program for your computer, download this:

My computers do not recognize sony dcr-hc28 camcorder

Hi, I'm from the Philippines. I have the same handycam model. The first time I connected it to my PC (Windows XP) via firewire, nothing happened. It cannot detect my handycam. I returned the firewire card to the shop where I bought it. They tested it and the firewire card is ok but the firewire cable is defective so they replaced it. When I got home, I tested it again but still the handycam cannot be detected by my PC. I went online to find a solution and I came upon a solution that you need to attach/connect your charger to the handycam before you connect your handycam to your PC. It said that the handycam needs a steady supply of power to be able to connect to the PC. It sounded weird but I tried it and BINGO! The handycam got detected. I was able to capture my videos.

I also have a TV Tuner & Capture Card but when I capture videos thru the RF cables, the videos losses quality and videos are blurred. Thats the reason I bought a firewire card.
