How to connect the Sony CCD-TRV318 to a PC with a 1394 data input

Is there an adapter available to transfer from the A/V connecting cable that comes with the handycam to a computer that does not have the yellow/black A/V connection, only a 1394 data input. I want to use my PC to burn the video to DVD.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. You can connect the USB connector on your PC to the USB Jack on your Camcorder using the USB cable supplied with it. The USB Jack is located at the bottom front left side of Camcorder which is covered with a flap and can be opened downwards. USB port on the PC is located in front and the back of the PC through which you can connect it with the Camcorder. You can also use Memory Stick.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

    the trv318 does not have a usb jack anywhere, much less on the front left side, which means there is no usb cable supplied with it, only av out cables that plug into the av out jack on the front left side behind the protective cover.

How to use pinnacle 14 studio with sony cam tvr-318


You will need to have an i-Link cable, also known as a IEEE 1394 cable, which is a four pin to four pin cable. That will hooked to the DV output from your camera to the DV input on your computer, if so equipped. Also there is a cable with a four pin i-Link to USB cable which I use my self on my system to import DV from my camera to the edit program.
Hope that this is helpful to you.

How do I connect my K7 to a 1394 socket


Hi,

Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:

Available Ports:

  • USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
  • Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
  • Printer interfaces: n/a

You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.

I hope this helps!

Hi, i want to no, what is 1394 on motherboard and if the usb cable in the front write 1394, i install it like a regular usb cable?????


It is Firewire port/ Interface. The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and real-time data transfer, frequently used by personal computers, as well as in digital audio, digital video applications etc. The interface is also known by the brand names of FireWire (Apple), i.LINK (Sony), and Lynx (Texas Instruments). This is not as widely used.It works just like USB but it is meant for connecting Firewire capable devices. If you have any firewire capable device (like video camera)and firewire cable, you can connect the device to your PC and use it for high speed data transfer.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I need my handicam trv285e conect to pc


According to the link below, you have USB and FireWire 1394 available and these are both common inputs on PCs with the US being the most common of the two. You would need the correct cable once you make your choice.

How can I get Windows 7 Movie Maker to recognise input from my Sony DCR TRV18E Handycam?


On page 230 of the user manual, it describes how to transfer movies from the camera to a computer using an i.Link (IEEE 1394) cable. You will need the 4 pin i.Link cable and an IEEE 1394 connector on your computer in order to do this. You cannot use the USB cable to transfer the video from this camcorder -- you can only transfer still images using the USB cable.
You will have to buy this i.Link cable and (if you don't have a IEEE 1394 port on your computer) a IEEE 1394 adapter card for you desktop computer. If your laptop computer doesn't have a IEEE 1394 adapter, then you're pretty much out of luck.
Once you have the i.Link and 1394 issues resolved, then Movie Maker should then recognize the camera.

Trying to find a cable for my sony hI8 model number ccd-trv68 to go from my camcorder to my computer?


This is an analog camcorder - not digital. Therefore, the only cables you can use are the RCA types for audio and composite video. The computer must have an adapter board or allow RCA inputs (analog).

Hi8 Video to DVD


CCD-TRV37 is analog video camcorder and can not be hooked directly with computer because camcorder video-audio out is analog and computer needs digital format.

You can hook camcorder with DVD Recorder and burn a DVD. Now you have data in digital format and can transfer in your computer.
