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

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System.

Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have 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 using i.LINK cable.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

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

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

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

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

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

If you are using an i.LINK cable then:

The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.

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

I HAVE A SONY DCR TRV25E AND AM UNABLE TO RECORD THERE IS NO PICTURE APPEARING ON THE LCD SCREEN OR VIEW FINDER BUT WHEN YOU PLAY BACK TAPE U STILL GET SOUND BUT NO PICTURE


Sounds like its fried, there is probably not a fix for the problem that will not cost more than the camcorder.It could be the power converter on the device, a voltage regulator or capacitor might have gone thus cutting power the certain parts of the device like the screen and CCD.

I want to transfer video from sony Digital Video Camera Recorder DCR/TRV25E to my Macbook Pro. The camcorder uses Mini DV and I have a USB connection between the camcorder & Mac. Please let me know...


Hi - It's pretty easy. You would use the I.Link (Sony calls it) connector which is actually fire wire. So you would need a fire wire cable (about five dollars or so) between the camera and Mac, load up the built in Imovie software and you'll be ready to go.
Here's a link to a good video tutorial demonstrating the process.

How can I convert the video from my DCR-TRV25E to my computer? Thank you!


Well you need a Video Input device, Software and AV cables. Install Video Capture card, (A TV card with external in are useful too) either PCI or USB, install the device and Drivers and Video Software, then using AV Camera to Video IN cables connect Camera to Video Audio IN, and then start Video Program on PC, Que up Camera for PLAY, press Record on Software, press Play on VCR. Then you will be able to save the stored Video for later playback. You will be able to save as many formats too and be able to burn to DVD. There is some good video software called Dscaler, & KMPLayer, both well worth downloading and using. links below. deinterlace.sourceforge.net/ -
