How to download video tapes from sony handycam dcr 32 to desktop computer


Hi there,

You will need to connect the Handycam to the desktop computer using the cable that was supplied with the product when purchased. You will also need to install the software that came on a CD/DVD with the Handycam when purchased. This will allow you to "rip" the video from the tape to your hard drive on your desktop computer.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Best regards,

I want to copy video footage onto PC/Mac from Sonday Handycam


You will need a standard video/audio rca cable (has a video out connector and audio on left side of lens), and a tv tunner (check that it has the rca in) that you can get as either usb (better double check if you have a usb 2 port on computer as it might be needed for capturing the video) or as a pci card.
Ussually the tunner would have a software to "capture" the video to the computer. And you would need to put your cam on play mode and start "capturing" and stop both the software and cam when the video footage ends.
I recommend corel studio 12, as it is very easy to use. Basically with corel no know-how required. Simple choices. Another great sofware is dvdsanta.
This would be for the pc.
Best wishes!!

Trying to download mini dv tape onto video


for to import from the Sony handy-cam you need a firewire cable ..not a rca..this one will only help you see the video on a tv ...but you will not be able to import them into computer ...
just ask at the store..and take the camera with you ..
another thing the camera may support even a usb cable that may be available in the box that it came with (infact the iLink cable should be there too )
so ..this is a link to a video I use to explain in detail the procedure to import fom minitape of sony handycam.
.http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876
after have them into the windows movie maker..just drag them to the story board..(join them if you need) ..and save them by finishing movie...and save to computer ..in best for computer mode...after that just burn them to **** ..using Nero ..or if they are small enough to get into a cd ...use window feature for burning ..

Trying to transfer camcorder video to computer.


To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:-
1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability)
2. Appropriate software/application.
If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed.
Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.

Windows won't recognize my sony dcr-trv19


Need a 1394 firewire port and suitable software like Corel Videostudio. Then no problems. When no 1394 port thoes pci cards come cheap, $15 or so. Video studio retails about $100 I think, you can download a free limited 30 day trial from Corel. Please uninstaal that demo after 30 days with the same install programm otherwise deep ****.

If you can capture it on the computer using a capture software, you can then burn the footage onto a dvd burner using a dvd burning software.
