OK ...I looked for a driver on the suport site but there isnt any ..so I guess it do not need one ..but just a manager to stream from ...
In your case if it do not see the device at all it means that the firewire port is not activated...so ...you have to restart and go to bios by pressing F2 and there look for the feature called optimal factory defaults ...activate it ...and than confirm ..and to save changes press F10..and when you confirm it will restart ...in this moment the port should be activated and you will be able to see the device in device manager ...
use a import from device feature...(probably will work into windows movie maker too ..I used it to stream from a vhs camera ..and I dont see why shouldn't work with a mini dv ..
or ..., just use any program you may have or came with the camer a..
Good luck !

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the Windows 7 Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.The Firewire to USB cable won't work with your camcorder,you will always end up with this error.
Click the link below for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.
Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.
Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .

Hello, I have a Sony EVI-D100 (ptz), I can connect the camera to my laptop, but only by the VISCA cable, used to control remotely the camera via PC, therefore I can control the camera but none video is...


Visca cable is only for camera control, it does not transmit video signal. You will need a USB video capture device and a s-video or composite video cable. Make sure the device you choose has the drivers for your version of Windows.

How do I tranfer video from my camcorder to my computer?


Hello there...

There is another way to transfer video from you camcorder if you camcorder support USB streaming. I usually use this method with my Sony Camcorder because more simple and don't need additional hardware.

Steps:
1) Install you camcorder driver to your PC/laptop.
2) Connect your camcorder to PC/laptop.
3) Open Windows Movie Maker.
4) Create a new project and select source input device to your camcorder.
5) Start record on your Windows Movie Maker application and press play on your camcorder.
6) Wait until camcorder finish playing and press stop in your WMM.
7) Save the file as WMV (later you can convert to another format using any video converter or even burn to CD)

PS: you can even edit the movie frame or add some opening text or end credit.

Hope this helps.... :D

Movie transfer


hey emron,

this usually happens if you dont have a driver for that cam in your laptop. as long as your laptop doesnt recognize you cam, try jumping from one usb port to another. when the new hardware wizard appears, this will help you to connect that to your system.
