Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV238 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Vista Compatibility Hi, This camcorder is not compatible for use with a USB drive on Windows Vista. Sony have told me I need to use an IEEE1394 cable, but my computer doesn't have a port... I'm supposed to get my brother's wedding video edited and on to disc for him soon! Please could anybody suggest how I can fix this??

Its very simple. Buy the IEEE which Sony calls i-link card which is just like any other PC card and fix it to any available **** in your PC. Windows will automatically detect and install it for you.

After the installation, you can then connect the small cable which you get when you purchase the card.
The pins are not the same so check first from your camera and see if its 4 or 6 pin before you buy. After you have connected it will be detected and ready for use.

Regards

WHICH FIREWIRE CABLE DO I GET FOR THE SONY DCR-TRV22E DV


you would need a ieee1394 4pin cable for the camcorder. of course the other end of the cable would depend on the computer's ieee1394 jack you'll be connecting the cable to. there are 2 types of ilink cables: 4pin-to-4pin or a 4pin-to-6pin (firewire 400) cable. latest mac computers uses a firewire 800 port so if your using one you may need a Moshi 800 to 400 firewire adapter if your having compatibility issues. see: http://store.apple.com/us/product/TW748LL/A for more information. hope this helps. thanks:)

Cant instal drivers


usb streaming function is not readily supported by windows vista. this would depend on the software that came supplied with the camcorder. unfortunately, the software being incompatible and the funtion (usb streaming) not supported by driver included in the supplied cd-rom, usb connection will not work (although you can use it for still picture transfer). for tape transfer you would need to go another route which is ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) connection. it should be a plug-and-play connection. your computer should support and have a working ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) card installed. a compatible ilink cable for both devices and a video capturing software like windows moviemaker and having all the needed hardware and software then your good to go. hope this helps.thanks:)

I have a Sony Handycam TRV325E. I've lost the


if your computer is running windows vista or 7.forget the software.if you have win xp i don't think it's economical to buy the disc.why don't you just download the usb driver from this website:
http://www.sonydigital-link.com/dime/camcorders/sd/d8/d8.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=DCR-TRV325E
with the driver installed you can get the PC communicate with the camcorder so you can get your pictures from a memory stick to import to your PC. now with videos, that would have to go a different route and you don't need the software for that.the video import would have to go through the dv (ilink or ieee1394) out jack from the camcorder to an ieee1394 port in your PC.your computer should have the required ieee1394 card installed and enabled.if you do it should then be a plug-and-play connection.all you would need is a compatible dv cable compatible with both cam and PC and a video capturing application like windows moviemaker to import your files of the tape.see p.209 of manual fig.59. hope this helps.thanks:)

I have windows vista and i cant install the usb driver and pixela programs for this handycam please help me.


the usb driver and pixela application is not compatible with windows vista. usb streaming is not supported by windows vista and 7 OS. however it would still be possible to transfer videos from your dv camcorder using the dv interface (ieee1394 or ilink) connection. you would need to have an ilink (ieee1394) card installed in your computer. you can check by going to device manager window. if you don't, try checking with your PC manufacturer recommendations for an ieee1394 chipset or card.if you do, all you need is an ilink cable (btw, the cam uses 4pin jack).get the correct cable for use with the PC and camcorder, and use windows moviemaker for your video capturing software.hope this helps.thanks :)

also, here's the support site for your unit:

Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7


win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)

I want to transfer the film taken by DCR-CH52E to computer, is there any one knows the solution? if so please let me know. thank you in advance. regrads


your unit doesnt have usb streaming feature (reason it doesnt have a usb jack). connection would have to go thru ilink (ieee1394) connection. that's the dv interface located left side at the bottom of the battery. it's a plug-and-play connection.so basically you need an ieee1394 card installed in your computer to support connection (refer to computer manufacturer), an ieee1394 cable compatible for both your computer and camcorder (uses 4 pin cable), and a video capturing software like moviemaker (for windows) and imovie (for mac).if you have that then your good to go. hope this helps. thanks:)
