Question about Video Cameras

1 Answer

Sharp VL Z400H T

The camera is working fine, but I can't download the tape any longer. I've taken it to a shop to check the firewire cable, but they said this isn't the problem.

The camera is more than 2 years old, but has hardly been used....I don't want to buy a new one!!!

Please help!!!!

I WANTS SHARP MIN DV VL-DC5 DRIVER


Hi there
Okay so I have carried out some research on the problem you are having.
The VL-DC5 does not have drivers online to download because the drivers in windows XP support this model camcorder
The problem is that you are probably trying to connect the device to your computer using USB.
The drivers in windows XP are only compatible with this camcorder when using Firewire cables.
If you don't have a firewire cable then you will need to buy one and use this to connect your camcorder to your pc.
It should work fine after you have tried this.
Let me know how you get on!

How do i load tape to computer?


The simplest solution is to use a FireWire cable connected between camera DV output and FireWire PC Input.
If your PC or laptop do not has a FireWire Input, you can use an USB capture device like EasyCap connected to your PC by USB interface and to your Camcorder by RCA connector or S-Video connector.

I need the part # that will allow me to connect my Sharp Viewcam Z VL-Z1 to my computer to download video. Please help.


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can usually be found on Amazon or eBay. Try a search on your camera model number. Most cameras need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.

I want to transfer my videos taken on my Sharp


Hi,
You will need a firewire cable and a firewire port on your computer. If you don't have such a port then you can buy a firewire pci card.

Sharp VL-E610


Get a firewire (IEEE-1394) cable insteaad of trying to use USB. Make sure that both camera and computer have firewire ports. Set camera to Tape/VCR or whatever setting you use when you playback your tape on your camcorder. Just leave it on that setting, don't hit "Play" or anything. Make sure that you have rewinded to the spot where you want it to start (a few seconds before, actually).

If you have WIndows Vista, you don't need drivers. The built-in Windows Photo Gallery will recognize it and will ask you if you want to transfer the tape. It will walk you through the whole process, if you want to transfer the whole tape or only parts of it. If you don't have Vista, you might try downloading Windows Live Photo Gallery but I don't know if it has the same functionality.

FIREWAIRE OR USB?


This camera appears to be firewire only, according to the comparison chart on sharp's website:
http://sharp-world.com/products/viewcam/compare2003.html
They call it iLink, which is Sony's term for iEE1394, Firewire is Apple's term for it.

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!
