Sir when I canect my dv camcorder pc via fire wire ...but not capture video..and erorr show code 1021 ...there are no free reusorses in computer...how to solve problum...help me....thanks..


see this topic and contact the supplier .God bless you

FireWire connection to computer keeps getting dropped. Check with manufacturer to make sure you have the latest driver and firmware updates for your camera and computer. Always turn the camera's power on before making a FireWire connection. Disconnect the FireWire cable before turning the camera off. Use the camera's AC adapter when making FireWire connections. Try a different FireWire cable and try connecting the camera to a different computer. FireWire cables and ports sometimes fail.

I am trying to upload video from my sony handycam DCR-TRV17 to my computer. I have a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable and it is plugged into my computer and the camcorder. I am running Windows 7. What is...


For Windows 7, Microsoft changed the game. They now require you to load new software to capture video from an older camcorder. Yes you do need to use the i.Link (Firewire) interface. I have had the best luck using the 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable.

Video capture is in the LIVE Photo Gallery part of Microsoft's suite of software. LIVE essentials

Window 7 problem cannot detect my video cam


After connecting the Camcorder to the Computer with the Firewire/i.LINK, turn ON the Camcorder.
Keep the Camcorder in Playback mode.
Start the Moviemaker Software which is pre-installed in the Windows.
Check whether the Camcorder is recognized as the Video Device.

If the Camcorder is not recognized, then check whether it works with other Computer or not.
You may also try using a different i.LINK cable that is compatible with the Sony Camcorder.
Sony Camcorder have 4 pin DV Interface and the Computers may have either 4pin or 6-pin i.LINK/Firewire port. So make sure that you are using the correct cable.

I cant conect in pc my web cam sony dcr hc21e handycam i have windows 7


Right, well your problem is very common, it is due to Windows 7 (I have it) not having very many drivers built-into it for cameras, and my own Sony camera driver is not in 7 either ok. So you are going to have to download your films from camera to PC with a cable called Firewire because USB cable wont work without windows drivers, firewire will.
Lets just hope your PC if it is not old has a Firewire socket at rear, as older PC wont have one.

Try the followings.

1. Shut down the computer.
2. Start again.
3. Turn off the camera.
4. Unplug the firewire cable.
5. Open the camera.
6. Plug the firewire cable.
7. Try to use the software now.

I think it will work

I cannot transfer video from my Sharp VL-NZ50 to my PC


I had the same problem with the VL-NZ50. It wasn't the camera, it was the IEEE 1394 interface on the laptop(s) -
I tried two different ones, one XP, the other W7 64; both were HPs with on-board (OHCI compliant) TI
IEEE-1394 chipsets.

Then I tried a Gateway desktop (Vista) with an on-board Ricoh
IEEE 1394 interface: the VL-NZ50 was recongnized instantly, controlled by the PC and transferring video flawlessly.

If you want it to work with your laptop , try an Adaptec PCMCIA card (I've heard they work with this camera), they can be had for under $10.

My Compaq Presario X1000 doesn't recongize my camcorder via firewire port.


It may be the problem with driver. Your OS may not contain the proper driver.Like in windows service pack 1 do not recognise some camcorders. either upgarde to service pack 2 or download proper driver from manufacturers site

XL 1s playback has a lot of digital noise.


if you are capturein through the fire wire port, it could be either the port is bad or the cable ha abad connection in it. try using a different cablr first, if that does not fix it, then it must be the firewire port. just to make sure, see if you can get ahold of a "Blue Box" one of those analog to firewire converter boxes, and see if it comes out clear then. if it does then I am 100% sure that it is the firewire port.
