I have a SONY handycam DCR HC 46E. I am unable to transfer video from Mini DV cassettes to my PC(with windows 7 ultimate 32). I have also downloaded and installed PMB. With that I am able to transfer...


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring videos from the Camcorder to the Windows 7 Operating System. 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. If your computer does not have the i.LINK port, you may purchase an i.LINK capture card to resolve the issue.

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.


Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Sony handycam ccd-trv35e how to video record on my laptop


Hi there.

The computer must have standard Audio/Video (A/V) RCA input jacks and compatible video capture software to complete this procedure. Because there are many different video capture applications on the market and we cannot reasonably know which video capture software you are using, Sony is unable to provide specific instructions or support for software we do not manufacture. However, many video capture applications have detailed help files, including specific instructions about capturing and importing video from a camcorder to a computer.

The help files should be available in the Help menu of the video capture software or in a separate file on the software disc. If you cannot find instructions in the help file or on the disc included with your software, consult the software manufacturer for more detailed support information.
  1. Connect an A/V cable to the A/V output jack of the camcorder:

    If your camcorder has standard A/V RCA output jacks, use standard A/V cables for the connection. avstnd.png
    If your camcorder has a mini A/V output jack, use an A/V cable with a mini connection on one end.

    av_mini.png
  2. Connect the other end of the A/V cable to the A/V input jack on the computer.
  3. Turn on the camcorder to the VCR, VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
  4. Cue the video in the camcorder to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
  5. Turn on the computer.
  6. Start the video capture software.
  7. Begin playing the video in the camcorder.
  8. Begin importing the video with the video capture software.
Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

How do I hook up a Sony Handycam Video 8 CCD-TRV41 NTSC to view on television?


the camera should have "a/v"out rca jacks.
yellow is video,other is audio,hook it to your tv or vcr.

YES,you can capture to your computer,but youll need a device with capturing/editing software.

dazzle,is an external adapter,and pinnicle used to sell a package,with an internal pci card,which is capable of importing "analog"(your old 8mm,or from vcr),OR digital(via firewire)if you decide to buy a newer camcorder.

BOTH products come with editing/dvd burning software(which you WILL need)and I can say from experience,pinnicle is easy to learn!!

How to save videos from sony handycam to my home pc


If I understand the user guide correctly, you can set the capture format in Preferences and have the captured video saved as MPEG1, there may be other options depending on what that version offers. If this is the only software you have to edit video, you must capture it first to have it saved to a folder of your choosing (usually set up in preferences). After that you should be able to use Windows Media Player or Quicktime to play back the file you captured. You can convert the MPEG1 files to another format if you want by using free software such as AVS Video Converter or other software.

No sound when capturing video from Handycam to computer


There is no sound carrier on an S video connection. It's Video only. use the AV left and right cables for the sound. It is normal not to monitor audio when capturing.

DOWNLOADING FROM CAMERA TO COMPUTER


Digital Video (DV) camcorders use a small port, usually located underneath the LCD flip-out screen, or behind a small plastic cover on the camera's body. My Canon has it on the front under the microphone. A special cable is required to plug into this port, and then into either the computer's USB or Firewire port. The camera is turned on, plugged in and Windows XP/Vista will offer to import the footage.
Analog (8MM, Hi-8, VHS-C) use a cable that has a headphone type plug on one end and audio/video RCA plugs on the other. These camcorders require you to equip the computer with a video capture device.
Without knowing the model of the camcorder, it is impossible to give any additional information. The operating system you are using would also be helpful information.

I have no sound on my sony handycam


Sony got back to me with the answer, so I will post it here for future reference.
If there is no audio when USB streaming with PIXELA ImageMixer version 1.5 software on the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, change the USB capture device setting for sound to USB Audio Device. In the Image Mixer Tool settings, confirm the USB Capture Device settings are set for an available USB Audio Device. This setting is not defaulted to the USB streaming mode.

This would be the icon of an open end wrench in the top right hand corner of the capture environment screen.

Follow this procedure to change the USB capture device setting for sound in the Pixela ImageMixer 1.5 software.

1. In the ImageMixer window, click the USB Device Capture icon.

2. Click the Preferences icon.

3. In the Capturing/Recording Preferences window, in the USB Capture Device Setting section, click the down arrow to select the desired sound device.

4. Click the OK button.

For any request for processing or editing assistance you may visit the PIXELA help file. You may also contact them at the following website:
