It sounds like your talking of a Firewire cable, the PC must have a firewire socket, it is like a USB but fatter, as for camera end no problem all you need is a converter to push onto the cable before you plug in camera.

Where i get cable to connect my dell vostro 1015 firewire port to sony dcr-trv22e handycam


You can get these cables at electronics stores like Radio Shack or online from sites like Amazon.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Firewire-Cable-IEEE-1394-1-8M/dp/B000747OIK/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1307019621&sr=8-4
Be sure to get the proper cable as they come in 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin. Check the ports on the dell for 4 or 6 pin.

I dnt hav usb cable for my handy cam DCR-HC52E ...


Product Summary
    4-pin to 4-pin IEEE 1394 iLink FireWire Cable dv out to laptop Connect and transfer home movie from your digital camcorder to Notebook computer.

    You will need a Firewire port on your computer, also known as a DV port or IEEE 1394, to use this cable. This is NOT a USB cable.

    This DV cable will connect your laptop (notebook)
    NOTE: for some models, becuase of no DV jack on the body, this cable connects to docking station/cradle instead of connecting directly to your camcorder.

I can not download sony DCR-HC54E mini DV to PC, please assist me in details.


You require a firewire cable to connect to the PC then use Movie Maker to capture the footage.
Cameras use a 4 pin socket and computers can use 4, 6, or 9 pin sockets.
Determine which socket is on the trget computer and buy the necessary cable.
FYI: Most Laptops use 4 pin and most Desktops use 6 pin. Avoid adapters if possible.

For example; if your Desktop computer has a 6 pin socket you buy a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable. Firewire is also called iLink or IEEE 1394.

Advice was given to me to buy firewire cable as my sony handycam DCR-TRV22E wont recognize by my mac OS X ver. 10.6.6? what type of firewire shld i buy?


I'm glad to provide the information about the required firewire cable.
All Sony Camcorders are having 4 pin firewire/i.LINK port.
You can purchase a Firewire cable depends upon the number of pins available on the firewire port on the Computer.
If you have 4 pin firewire port in the Computer, you can purchase a 4 to 4 pin Firewire cable.
If you have 6 pin Firewire port in your Computer, you can purchase 4 to 6 pin i.LINK cable.
In rare cases, it may also 4 to 9 pin.
Please refer the manual of your computer or contact apple to get the information about the number of pins available on the Computer.
You may also get back to me with the model # of the Computer so that I might be able to check the pin information.
Thanks for understanding.
If you need any further assistance, please let me know..

I connect the IEEE cable (4 pin to 4 pin) to the camera and the computer and turn the camera to "play". The camera is not recognized by the computer.


Check the cable first. It's easy - put another one. If it works - change the cable. If Not - check the PC input by connecting another similar camera. If it works with another camera, then Your IEEE camera port is broken and needs to be repaired. And the order of connection must be: 1. Power off camera. 2. Put IEEE cable on it. 3. Plug another connector of cable on computer. 4. Power on the camera. DON´T TRY TO CONNECT A CAMERA IN A PLAY MODE, it probably can destroy Your camera IEEE port. Sincerely.

I want to watch video from my camcorder on pc. My camcorder has a 4 pin ieee firewire port. How many pins does the compaq presario sr1420nx have for its ieee firewire port? Should I use 800mps cables


You are on the right track. The best way to hook your computer to your camcorder is the firewire connection. There are 4 pins on the small connection on your cam, but on the PC the firewire connection is bigger and has six pins on that end. You should get the best cable that you have access to, because speed is everything when you are dealing with video, I would get the 800mps. Just make sure to check your connections on the PC and the Cam to make sure you get the right cable.

Firewire problem


It should work. Laptops have a 4pin connection. There is a video on how to specifically connect digital cameras to laptops using 4pin to 4 pin IEEE 1394 cable. So it should work... The video is on www.HandBookLive.com under Electronics category. It doesn't cover the software because all softwares would be different, but you can see that it uses 4 pin to 4 pin. You can double check on this site though.

MY IEEE 1394 port does not recognise camcoder


Although this post is rather old, I can tell you that the mini 4-pin firewire port is the bane of my existence. The 6-pin port is made rather sturdy with heavily shielded cable. The 4-pin uses the same heavy cable, but does not have the strength to support the cable, if it happens to droop. This causes pins to get slightly bent out of alignment, and upon re-insertion, you can get crushed pins if you are not VERY careful. Examine both your cable end and the port on your camera/deck - you will probably find one or more of the pins have been pushed back. Pray that it's the cable that's dead, and not the port in your camera/deck. I have a Canon XL1 and a Sony DSR-40 with the same problem - crushed pin in the unit's port. I'll have to spend $$$ to get these ports replaced.
