I cannot open it with windows movie maker i use xp and won't work. It say's "it is not a valid windows movie maker project"

windows movie maker doesn't recognize mpeg 4 files. you need to use the software that came with your camcorder, or you might try downloading another player by doing a search for mpeg 4 editing programs. one other option is Media Converter (also media converter pro) there you can convert the files to avi or wmv that win movie maker can use.

Hi sir. I thing i need drivers to my ccd-trv 108 e handycam to get my video int my pc. I have windows 7. And i want driver to my dcr-hc23 that posebul you can help me. ...

your sony ccd-trv 108 will transfer videos(stream) to a computer using firewire connection. install the supplied software or use any program compatible for streaming like windows movie maker. use a firewire cable. check your computer for a firewire port(port with IEEE symbol) make sure that the tape is totally rewounded then press the record button on windows movie maker as the same time as you play the video from the camcorder.

I can't download video from videocam to pc.

You should be able to connect your camcorder to IEEE1394 socket on a computer, by means of a firewire cable, and capture the video with Windows Movie Maker or other software. Windows Movie Maker is part of WindowsXP and is already instaleed on PCs.

This camcorder should not require a driver in order to capture the footage. Start up your capture software, power-up the camera in VCR mode and then connect the Firewire cable. It should then allow you to playback the tape and capture the contents.
Here is the manual online:
If you need a simple program to capture the footage look to:

Your video-editing software (including Windows Movie Maker) should also capture the footage.

Transfer Video From Camcorder to Computer

Here is what ya need to do, that is get the correct cable(s) to connect your Camcorder to your PC, usually USB or Firewire. Then install the software that will allow you to transfer the movie from the camera to your PC where you can then manipulate the files as ya wish with Movie Editing software. The "Other" way is to burn them to the small Camera Disk, place that disk in ya PC's CD/DVD then simply "Copy" the "Movie" to ya PC, and then once again ya can use Movie Making/Editing software to Join, Edit your movies. Another way is to connect the output A/V of your camera to your A/V input on your PC (if you have one).. using you Video software capture the Camera Video to the PC & Edit the resultant file, as B4. Windows Movie Maker works OK, but there are many Freeware programs that one can use.. have a "Google" for these programs .... AnyDVD, convertXtoDVD, Moive joining software, ShrinkDVD, I am sure you will have no trouble finding what ya need.
