Dear HiHiBaby,
Please got to Menu of your camera and enable USB Stream function.
Install driver software from Sony camcorder cd provided with camera package.
If you are using Windows XP, drivers will be installed automatically and you will see recorded movie in PC.

I cant download my DCR-TRV250 Digital 8 videos to my computer. I tryed on Win 7 and Win XP, with or without Sony drivers... But no computers recognize my cam. Also I looked for help on Sony eSupport, but...

From the Sony support page for this camera, it has the following:
  • Drivers:
    • The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
  • Not Supported:
    • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
    • The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.

Your DCR-TRV250 uses a Digital 8 system to record and playback information on its cassette whereas the older Analog 8mm machines used the analog system. Unfortunately the two are incompatible.

Download to PC

you will be able to find a data cable and installation disc that came along with your product. install the software from the disc to your pc. one end of the data cable will be in USB type, connect it to the pc and the other end to the cam. you can refer the instruction manual to connect it(manual also present in the disc as soft copy). now after you connected the cam to the pc, switch it on and you will be able to see an icon on the mycomputer screen. enter into that icon's window and you will be able to see the images or videos, which you can copy and paste in the pc.the software is used as an additional works such as organizing, adding music to photo collection etc. so this works even if the software is not installed.
