I am having a sony hi 8 ccd trv 58 model handycam. i want a driver to transfer my videos to my personal computer. any free drivers available?

CCD-TRV58 is analog camcorder and can not be connected with computer directly as camcorder does not have USB or iLink/ DV ports.
Computer needs digital format movie data to store / edit files.
You need to hook camcorder audio-video out to DVD recorder and burn DVD of camcorder movie so you will get digital format of movie. Put that DVD in computer and copy files for further process.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD TRV211.

If you are asking about CCD-TRV211 camcorder?
CCD-TRV211 is analog Video-8 camcorder so its movie data is not digital and can not be connected directly with computer via USB port.
Best and easiest was is to connect camera with DVD Recorder and burn DVD, this will convert analog movie file into digital data and you can copy it to hard disk of computer.

I need a Hi8 camera to transfer old movies to DVD. I found a Sony ccd TR3000 second hand, but I have no idea how much to buy it for.

This camera had the ability to write and re-write T.C. (time code). It origenally sold for approx $2,000.00 circa 1995. However now outdated, analog, no viewing screen, obsolete or expensive parts I would expect to offer (in clean and working condition) around $150.00 to 200.00 Can.
It did (in Canada only) come with a docking station allowing the camera to be used for editing.
Good Luck ... Dave

Connection Handycam to PC for vedeo editing

That is an analog camera. You need to buy a third-party device to convert analog to digital. You are lopoking for a little box with analog inputs (S-video, RCA audio) and a digital output (Firewire is best but USB versions are cheaper with lower quality)

Fuzzy unclear movie

This can be a defective CCD which senses the images.
Random moving lines and color patches are the symptoms.
We can provide this in 3 to 4 weeks from Sony.
