The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available for Windows 7 OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows 7 Operating System.

Please follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection (IEEE 1394).

IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.

NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.

  1. Connect an i.LINK cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.

  1. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer.

NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.

  1. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  2. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  5. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  6. Begin importing the video with the capture software.

It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.

i.LINK Cable.

Window 7 problem cannot detect my video cam

After connecting the Camcorder to the Computer with the Firewire/i.LINK, turn ON the Camcorder.
Keep the Camcorder in Playback mode.
Start the Moviemaker Software which is pre-installed in the Windows.
Check whether the Camcorder is recognized as the Video Device.

If the Camcorder is not recognized, then check whether it works with other Computer or not.
You may also try using a different i.LINK cable that is compatible with the Sony Camcorder.
Sony Camcorder have 4 pin DV Interface and the Computers may have either 4pin or 6-pin i.LINK/Firewire port. So make sure that you are using the correct cable.

How can i transfer videos from DCR-TRv 460E TOCOMPUTER

It is very simple. Install a Firewire (IEEE1394) card in PCI slot (if you don't have any video capture card) and connect DCR460E camcorder to PC through iLink cable. You need a video editing software like Ulead Video studio, Pinnacle studio or any other to be installed in your PC. Then go to capture mode of that programme and capture transfer video to PC hard disk. Windows movie maker is also do the same. For editing and better special effects you should use hihger versions of ulead or pinnacle. Thank you.

Ok, found it..This is what I had posted:

It could be that your software disc is corrupt and you will need to download the software from the website.

Trythis: First uninstall the previous software installed. Restart thecomputer. Switch on your cam, and plug in via USB. Wait a while and seeif it is detected at all, without the software. If it isn't, you maywant to check this article:

Ifit is detected, then the issue is with the software, and as saidbefore, you will need to download it again. Try a clean install asoutlined here:

Have you gone through both links and tried them? Also make sure that you have downloaded the latest patches for your version of Pinnacle. Make sure you do not have any other conflicting software (similar video capture software). If so, uninstall them. Then try a clean boot. I see you have XP, so here's the link for XP:

Also, if you are trying to tranfer hi-res pics or video, make sure you use the FireWire connection instead of the USB. Most camcorders with USB interfaces use the USB only for still imagesand possibly low-rez video. Very few camcorders use the USB forfull-rez video and even fewer have a USB interface that would be usableby Studio. Studio recognizes and uses Digital 8 or MiniDV camcorders connected to the firewire (not USB) port. You could also try using a new FireWire cable and see if that helps..

Also, is the camera on and in the proper mode? Usually the camcorder must bein "VCR" or "VTR", but check the camcorder manual. Also, somecamcorders must be running from their AC adaptor for DV capture.

Please note that Studio will only work with type 2 avi files, mpeg1 or mpeg2 video, and not Mpeg 4 format. So ensure which format you are recording in as well..

Well, try that for now and let me know how it goes..If you found that you were able to solve the issue, I would greatly appreciate a Fixya (makes my time worthwhile :). I would also appreciate if you could "Accept" my solution here:

If you have any further questions, please feel free to post back. Cheers!

Canon L2 to Pinnacle Studio without 1394?

You can use RCA's coming out of the cam to a device like Dazzle which goes from your PC's USB port to RCAs. Works great. Hope this helps.
