Video transfer

If you're using a Windows Vista Operating System it'snot possible to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB connection. The videos from the tape camcorders cannot be transferred to Windows Vista Operating System as there is no USB Streaming ooption available on the Windows Vista Operating System. The Camcorder uses the USB Streaming function to transfer the videos to the Computer. You may wish to purchase a i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer in order to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.
There is an update for driver on the Sony website to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB cable.

You may also try installing the driver update for the Camcorder. The i.LINK cable gives a better video transfer qulaity than the USB transfer. The i.LINK cable used to connect the Camcorder to the computer depends on the number of pins available on the i.LINK/FIREWIRE port on the Computer. The i.LINK port on the Computer is a D shaped port which is labelled as i, DV, IEEE1394 and Firewire.

Can Not Transfer Video to Computer

The Samsung web site has a 32-bit Vista driver but no 64-bit driver. Come on, it's 2009 for God's sake!


For Vista (or any OS), first FINALIZE* the mini-disk using your Samsung camera. FINALIZING creates a DVD out of your mini-disk. You can put that in your computer and it will play just like any DVD. If you want to edit your movies, your mini-DVD has .vob (movie) files on it.

Movie Maker won't import a .vob file so you'll have to convert it to .avi using a third-party conversion tool. I use Need4Video for around $50. I think there's free ones out there too.

And that's how I spent my summer vacation.
