I am trying to upload video from my sony handycam DCR-TRV17 to my computer. I have a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable and it is plugged into my computer and the camcorder. I am running Windows 7. What is...

For Windows 7, Microsoft changed the game. They now require you to load new software to capture video from an older camcorder. Yes you do need to use the i.Link (Firewire) interface. I have had the best luck using the 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable.
Video capture is in the LIVE Photo Gallery part of Microsoft's suite of software. LIVE essentials

Uploading video from sc-d353 camera to Mac

Final Cut may not sync with the Camcorder. I assume you're running firewire into the g4. Try capture as an analog device.

There are two way to upload your picture's or video's to your pc:

Yes you can. You may need to purchase a capture card though. So that your computer can capture video from the camera. You can get the capture cards for as little as 20$ Just google capture cards and start reading.

VHS to digital conversion the ghetto way

The Trv19 has i.LINK™ (DV IN/OUT). So it would be possible to capture your VHS on a PC/MAC and then upload it to the Trv19. I haven't done the upload step to this model, but I've used Dazzle's ( and Hauppaugge ( capture cards/devices to capture the NTSC/PAL video and audio. From there you upload via iLINK (aka FireWire) to the camera.
