Re: How do I transfer video to my computer?

I dont think you need a software for that and since it is a mac, you can find setting sin your cam to make it a storage mediem and plug it directly.

when it does open, just copy the videos and whallaaa~!

hope this helps.

I have sony dcr-hc30e -handi cam, am not able to copy the pictures/video from my cassette in to PC , please help me if any software to download thanks in advance regards raju

If you need to transfer your files from this handycam to your computer, the first thing you will need is the usb data cable. This will let you transfer the files.

But in order for the computer to recognize your handycam it will need a special software or driver. This driver can be download from this site.
(to download: enter the verification code in the box and click Download. Wait for a few seconds to start downloading, if fails click the link)

Once completely downloaded install this driver to your computer.

You may need this user guide or manual for this. (In order to view this manual you will need and Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your system)

Connect the Handycam to the computer via usb data cable and let the computer read and found new hardware. Once a message appears " Your New Hardware Installed and Ready To Use appear" browse your explorer and look for the icon of the Handycam. Double click the icon and then you are ready for transfer.

Good luck.
Please comeback and give me some good ratings. Thank you for using Fixya.

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

XP does'nt recognise Handycam

You will need a DV cable. This cable did not come with your camcorder. You will also need software for the transfer process. Windows Movie Maker can do this There is a free demo version at, but it will leave a watermark on your video if you don't pay for it. You might try Windows Movie Maker first if you already have it.

Once you have captured the video on your computer, you cannot just burn it to a DVD as a file if you want to play it in DVD players. This too requires special software.

Video transfer from sony handycam ccd-trv 308 hi8 to a computer

I have a sony handycam ccd-trv 308 hi8 analog camcorder and I was trying to transfer videos from it to my computer. However, when I plug the S-video cable to the handycam and my computer, nothing happens. Does my computer require a driver to recognize the handycam because I cannot find any in the sites of sony for my handycam's model. Or am I using the wrong wire?
