I have replaced a Windows XP PC with a new PC running Windows 7 Home Premium and I have not been able to connect my DCR-HC26 Sony Handycam digital tape camera to the new PC. I'm using an I-link (firewire)...


Mostly with these cameras you do not need driver (unless you use a USB cable) but like me you have firewire okay? so you should unplug your camera, turn your PC off for a min or two, plug camera in THEN yes THEN put your PC on, and the Win 7 will see your camera and loads setting it needs auto ok.

Capture video not responding - driver issue


Hi All,

This problem is sorted out, upon checking the handycam the USB streaming was not enabled, the same was enabled and my computer could recognise the device.

Thanx

Hi Heart of Chr....

Here is the USB driver for your Sony Handycam DCR-HC52e:

http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/Video%20Camera/Sony/Sony_DCR-HC21_xp_driver_needed.files.hidden/USBDRVEN.EXE

The Firewire driver is already bundled with Windows XP.

Software for viewing, editing and transferring:
DCRHC52 is compatible with Windows Movie Maker & Apple iMovie,meaning you can usually begin editing your footage straight away usingthe software already installed on your PC.

Hope this helps :)
Season's Greetings!

XP does'nt recognise Handycam


You will need a DV cable. This cable did not come with your camcorder. You will also need software for the transfer process. Windows Movie Maker can do this There is a free demo version at www.scenealyzer.com, but it will leave a watermark on your video if you don't pay for it. You might try Windows Movie Maker first if you already have it.

Once you have captured the video on your computer, you cannot just burn it to a DVD as a file if you want to play it in DVD players. This too requires special software.

Hello Laura. You cannot transfer video from this camcorder with a USB cable. You will need a DV cable. This cable did not come with your camcorder. You will also need software for the transfer process. Windows Movie Maker can do this although I've never used it. I used a product called Scenalyzer. There is a free demo version at www.scenealyzer.com, but it will leave a watermark on your video if you don't pay for it. You might try Windows Movie Maker first if you already have it.

Once you have captured the video on your computer, you cannot just burn it to a DVD as a file if you want to play it in DVD players. This too requires special software.

I'm travelling for work right now, but when I get home in a few days I can be of more help. If you want to keep going on this, get a DV cable and see if you can capture the video with Windows Movie Maker and let me know.
