I need drivers for my Sony DCR-HC24 for Windows Vista, Sony support Web don't have. Thank You Regards Jaume


Your Sony Camcorder was basically setup to work with Windows XP, in that timeframe, and making it work with Windows Vista could be problematic. However, you may be able to make everything work by using the i.Link connection on the camera to a i.Link card on a desktop PC. Sony says this might work in Vista if you upgrade your original software. As far as drivers for the IEEE-1394 card, they are mostly already built-in in Microsoft Windows XP, VISTA etc. and should be no problem. If you do not already have a firewire card, get one from Amazon online.

FULL VERSION OF XP PRO TO DOWNLOAD ?


At the moment, the only method of getting Windows XP install media is by purchasing the disc or ordering install media directly from Microsoft. The other way is if you're a MSDN subscriber, you can usually download software images from Microsoft and use your own key.

The other way to do this is by finding a friend who has a Windows XP cd of your version [for example, Windows XP Home OEM, OEM meaning that the disc came with a manufacturer such as Dell or HP, or Windows XP Home Retail, meaning that the disc came in a Windows XP Home box someone purchased]. If you can borrow thier disc, you can use your key off of your COA [Certificate of Authenticity] which is a sticker on your computer showing your 25 digit license key. This will install Windows XP legally on your system again.

If you own an OEM computer like Compaq, HP, Dell, etc, you can also try contacting support for that PC manufacturer and seeing if you can order recovery media for your computer model. This will install the operating system, all drivers, and software that originally came with your computer back to default when you bought your PC. You may also have recovery software installed on your computer. Look under your start menu and see if you have a suite of software from your PC manufacturer, including recovery software or system restore software.

Best of luck!

Transferring video from tape to PC


Hi. I do know how to do that. You need some software that's capable of controlling the camera such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut, or something like that. I believe Microsoft Movie Maker will do it and so will Roxio Media Creator which is the package they sell that burns CDs and DVDs as well. It's a whole media center.

The camera has the capability of being controlled through the firewire port on the front. You get a cable for the firewire port on the camera (firewire mini 4 pin) that goes to the computer (firewire 4 pin standard size). If you have an older computer with no firewire and it does have a PCMCIA card slot sometimes called a PC slot, or express card slot ... you can buy cards that will give it firewire ports.
You MUST have firewire to do this. The newer machines like the Acer Aspire One or any of the netbooks don't have any way to add firewire although the CPU is fast enough for video work. I capture on my old computer with firewire, and save the video to an external hard drive and edit on the netbook. Anyhow, I'm getting sidetracked!

Open your editing program and have it do a movie capture. The capture window will have buttons that look like the ones on the camera for fast forward, reverse, play, stop, etc. plus a couple for single frame reverse and forward which is useful for editing. It will also have a record button on the software. Play the tape and just as you start it, hit record. It should capture and you'll see a little data window on some software showing the frames captured and dropped during capture. That's about all there is to it. Editing is a bit trickier and I'm still learning alot of it. You can get older copies of Premiere online from a number of different sites. It's my personal favorite. It does more ... but the movie making software Microsoft provides with Windows XP and above will perform the capture perfectly well. Good luck with it.

If you have trouble, I'll be happy to get online in a chat session and talk you through it if that would help. I'm on AOL and my email is ljmagnuson@aol.com.
