    I have the same problem as well. Connected a firewire camera and that's fine, so must be a problem with the JVC's firewire port.

I cant download my DCR-TRV250 Digital 8 videos to my computer. I tryed on Win 7 and Win XP, with or without Sony drivers... But no computers recognize my cam. Also I looked for help on Sony eSupport, but...

From the Sony support page for this camera, it has the following:
  • Drivers:
    • The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
  • Not Supported:
    • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
    • The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.

The LCD screen has suddenly stopped working. The Handycam is a DCR-42,purchased in September 2005 and sparingly used. I have given it to Sony Service Center at Arabinda Sarani, Kolkata, India. How do I...

See this, it answers to most of your queries:

The CD that came with the camcorder is not compatible with Windows 7. You have to go to Sony's site and get an update. See if the following link is useful:

I think USB streaming is not supported in Windows 7, so probably iLink is the only option available to you, which anyway is better than USB in terms of less frame drops and capture of DVD quality. The camera has 4 pin ilink port. Check whether you have 6-pin port or 4-pin port or both type of ports on your computers. Laptops generally have one 4-pin port. Desktops can have more than one iLink ports and can have both 6-pin and 4-pin. 4-pin port would look exactly like the one you have on your camcorder. You can find a photo of 6-pin ports at

If your both the computers have at least one port with same number of pins, then you can use one cable for transferring to both.

You will need an ilink cable with 4-pin male to connect to camcorder and either 6-pin male ( 4-pin male ( to connect to the computer side.

Hi, forgive me if I'm telling you something you already know but if you shot video in DV mode then the iLink switch on the camera has to be set to DV. If you shot video in SD or HD mode then it must be set to MPEG2.

No driver for sony handycam trv30 using windows 7; can't find a driver that will work with firewire 1394

usb streaming is not supported by your new windows OS,reason usb driver is not available. for ilink or ieee1394 connection it should be a plug-and-play connection. no setting in the camera enables or disables ilink output and an ilink driver for the camera is not needed to support this connection (not unless you need to update or reinstall your ieee1394 device driver to get it to work). check this solution link:
hope you can get to establish connection.thanks:)

I have windows vista and i cant install the usb driver and pixela programs for this handycam please help me.

the usb driver and pixela application is not compatible with windows vista. usb streaming is not supported by windows vista and 7 OS. however it would still be possible to transfer videos from your dv camcorder using the dv interface (ieee1394 or ilink) connection. you would need to have an ilink (ieee1394) card installed in your computer. you can check by going to device manager window. if you don't, try checking with your PC manufacturer recommendations for an ieee1394 chipset or card.if you do, all you need is an ilink cable (btw, the cam uses 4pin jack).get the correct cable for use with the PC and camcorder, and use windows moviemaker for your video capturing software.hope this helps.thanks :)

also, here's the support site for your unit:

Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7

win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)

S video out on old sony to dv in on new sony?


If your computer comes with an S Video IN port you could use that. If not Im sure you could find a cable or a kit that would allow you to import video from your ILink-IN from an S Video OUT port. You may need to run select software to accomplush the S Vid to ILink, so it may not work directly from Camera to Camera.

Hope this helps :)
