The camcorder has i.Link (FireWire) high-speed digital connection for transferring video in digital format to your computer or standalone DVD recorder in real time with no loss in quality. Also present are USB 1.1 (for picture download and video streaming) and A/V/S-Video outs.
So the way to do it ..its by firewire..and a proper software to manage it ...it came with the camera on a disk

I AM UNABLE TO COPY VIDEOS FROM TAPE TO PC


Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.

Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.

Hello there!
Wheather is a new laptop or used , you have to verify this,
1) If you dont have any program that is blocking video, or other program or antivirus, red alarm etc.
2) verify if camera working fine with the program it came and all drivers are installed.

4) Verify is the vide cam, are well connected inside ( any good tech can see if is working fine lines inside. )

Pci video card


If you have internal graphics, you need to enter the BIOS and change the vide setting to PCI-E, AGP,Etc.., save and exit the BioS, power off PC, then install video card, make sure all needed power connectors on vide caard are plugged in (some nes cards require a plug from the power supply to be used as well as the power provided from the PCI-E slot)

Sony DCR-TRV8 video transfer problems


The USB drive for Sony CAM you can download from Sony web but the USB will not allow you to transfer video from your CAM only for memory stick
However if you have firewire input on your Laptop, have you? normaly if you have firewire input on your laptop as soon as you connect your CAM it will detect automatic either with windown movies maker or with Nero
Sometime the firewire from CAM defect I repaired a few of them with this problem
Can you conect this CAM to another computer or try different cable ?
Or tell me exactly what input you have on your laptop such firewire input, PCMCIA slot
Cheers
