Video transfer from sony handycam ccd-trv 308 hi8 to a computer

I have a sony handycam ccd-trv 308 hi8 analog camcorder and I was trying to transfer videos from it to my computer. However, when I plug the S-video cable to the handycam and my computer, nothing happens. Does my computer require a driver to recognize the handycam because I cannot find any in the sites of sony for my handycam's model. Or am I using the wrong wire?

The S-video on your computer is for output video (to connect to monitor or TV). Samething for your Cam. You need to have a device video input (USB or PCMCIA) to connect to your computer, and a software (driver that comes with the device) to CAPTURE the video from your Cam.
So you need a hardware and sofware for this. Price now is ~ US$ 40 to > US$100 depending on the brand and quality.

Trying to find a cable for my sony hI8 model number ccd-trv68 to go from my camcorder to my computer?


This is an analog camcorder - not digital. Therefore, the only cables you can use are the RCA types for audio and composite video. The computer must have an adapter board or allow RCA inputs (analog).

I have sony ccd-trv76e handycam ,i want to transfer all movies i have recorded to my pc how can i do this.


Dear Freind ,
I am also using a good & nice product of Sony TRV 76E analog camcorder .I had converted all my hi8 videos to MPEG 4 format .
I am using a PC with Murcury TV capture card .In camera one AV out jack is available which is connected to murcury TV capture card .First it will recored in AVI format then you have to use one good video editing tool to edit & desird video format . I think your problem has resolved.

Thanks

all I found its a driver for hi8 camcorders but it seams that is for windows 2000 ...anyway some drivers work on xp just fine even if they were build for 2K ...its worth a try ...if not ..you can get a alder cheap computer and keep it with 2000 ( if we dont find the xp driver ) ...just for downloading and operating this camcorder...

Six years ago, I purchased my Sony Handycam CCD_TRV308 Hi-8. Now I want to download some old videos. Will this cam corder allow me to transfer videos to my computer?


You likely need a video capture card that will accept analog video (several makers like Pinnacle--not a recommend);
...alternatively, if you have a digital video camera, better ones have an analog video input jack by which you can use the digital camcorder as an interface (with analog to digital conversion), and thence to the computer via the firewire cable.
...This technique can also be used to transfer VHS from your old VHS player from its analog output, via the digital camcorder to the PC.
..This way you can transfer into a NLE (non-linear editor) like Adobe Premier, Final Cut, Sony Vegas, AVID, etc ; and edit your video now that it has been digitized. And the Hi8 as you know will have much better resolution potential than the VHS.

I am having a sony hi 8 ccd trv 58 model handycam. i want a driver to transfer my videos to my personal computer. any free drivers available?


CCD-TRV58 is analog camcorder and can not be connected with computer directly as camcorder does not have USB or iLink/ DV ports.
Computer needs digital format movie data to store / edit files.
You need to hook camcorder audio-video out to DVD recorder and burn DVD of camcorder movie so you will get digital format of movie. Put that DVD in computer and copy files for further process.

Hi8 Video to DVD


CCD-TRV37 is analog video camcorder and can not be hooked directly with computer because camcorder video-audio out is analog and computer needs digital format.

You can hook camcorder with DVD Recorder and burn a DVD. Now you have data in digital format and can transfer in your computer.

How can I transfer video onto a PC


Your camera is Analog model, can't connected directly with PC. You need to install some sort of "Analog-to-Digital video convertor card" in PC to digitize its audio-video output.

Hello,
Sony handycam model starts with CCD-XXXX shows that its analog camcorder and its picture signal is analog. You can't connect directly camera with PC to transfer files. You need to install MPEG card or some thing like that in PC 1st and this card will digitize analog picture signal into compatible format.
