Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR40 Camcorder

2 Answers

Can I get the video off of my Sony Handycam DCR-40 without the docking station? It broke, so I want to know if I can connect it to the computer directly? I'm not willing to lose the video we've taken, so any advice is appreciated.

I bought my DCR-SR40 used (just camera) and I have the same problem. Downloaded the instruction manual from sony and discovered the only way to connect to a computer is through the
Sony Camcorder Docking Station
#DCRA-C162
and a Special USB Cable!

It is actually a 'Handycam Station' - it is a docking station for charging the battery. Your best bet is to try Ebay.
