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 :)

I think you are using Windows Vista and facing problem to connect Sony DCR-HC53
Download Update for Picture Motion Browser software at Sony Support.
You need iLINK cable to transfer movie data in to computer. iLINK cable is shown in below picture.
You can have more info HERE about iLINK connectivity if you are running Windows XP in your laptop.

Can't use my Sony TRV22 miniDV camcorder to pass through and record Hi8 analog signal to my PC

Just below, they noted you don't put a tape in the TRV... Otherwise it outsmarts you.
