If this computer is running Windows, go to the control panel, click on the "system" icon, then click on "device manager".

That will tell you in detail what you have.

It's easier to tell from looking at the case.

You'll know if you have USB. If you're looking for iLink, it will be called "firewire".

If you want to make sure you have USB 2.0, it's probably USB 2.0 if the PC is 2-3 years old or newer.

I assume you're asking for this because you want to see if you move video to it? If you want to use iLink/Firewire, you can probably add an expansion card. Same for USB 2.0.

Im trying to recovery my music in my hitachi tb, but usb doesnt recognize the device, help

If you PC does not see the drive (assuming the PC has all the required USB drivers), then, 1 check and or subsitute the USB cable. 2. check the power supply/wall wart for correct power. 3. check the USB plug on the PC, try a different one if equiped. 4. the USB interface card in the external case may be toast. You will need to check or sub the interface to ensure that's not the issue. 5. place the drive in a different case with a different USB interface.

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop

Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

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:

I get an error message that says

It means that the DVD Recorder thinks that the DV or Digital 8 camcorder is not connected to the iLink / Firewire connector. Check you have everything connected properly or if you want to record a different way there may be a memory option that allows you to change the way the unit is expecting to receive a signal. The DV/D8 just means DV or Digital8 which are 2 standards in video recording with different types of tape. The specific interface here is an iLink interface specific to Sony to allow control of the recording interface remotely. It is also possible that your iLink or firewire connected device is not compatible with this Sony model....

A sony dcr-trv 103 camcorder and I want to connect to computer

Yes, the brandnames Firewire (Apple) and iLink (Sony) are both IEEE 1394 interfaces.
Your cam should require a 4-pin to a 6-pin, both IEEE 1394. Hope this helps.
