Greetings csallal,

It would depend on the type of computer you have. A laptop is going to require a 4-pin to 4-pin cable, whereas a desktop is going to require a 4-pin to 6-pin cable.

Thank you,

Dort

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the Windows 7 Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.The Firewire to USB cable won't work with your camcorder,you will always end up with this error.
Click the link below for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.
Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.
Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .

Hi, I'm wondering if you can help, I have a Sony DCR-TRV340E camcorder and wish to take the video footage from one of the tapes and record/stream it onto my MacBook pro. I've tried using the USB cable...


*reason for not streaming the video: its because you're using the wrong type of cable to stream it to a macbook

*type of cable needed: you need a firewire cable to stream videos from your camcorder to your macbook.

*please make sure to check if your macbook has a firewire(IEEE) port on it and also make sure what type of firewire port it has( 4 pin or 6 pin firewire port)


*check your macbook specification for a firewire port and make sure to check how mny pinslot it has before buying a firewire cable.

* the other end of a firewire cable would surely fit the camcorder and the other end would depend on the firewire port available in your macbook.

* you would also be needing an application on your macbook that would record streamed videos.

WHICH FIREWIRE CABLE DO I GET FOR THE SONY DCR-TRV22E DV


you would need a ieee1394 4pin cable for the camcorder. of course the other end of the cable would depend on the computer's ieee1394 jack you'll be connecting the cable to. there are 2 types of ilink cables: 4pin-to-4pin or a 4pin-to-6pin (firewire 400) cable. latest mac computers uses a firewire 800 port so if your using one you may need a Moshi 800 to 400 firewire adapter if your having compatibility issues. see: http://store.apple.com/us/product/TW748LL/A for more information. hope this helps. thanks:)

Recording to pc from camera


If the laptop doesn't have a FireWire port (you are using the FireWire output on the cam, right?) you can buy an express card (or PCMCIA card if that's the port on your Packard Bell) with a FireWire port. They are not expensive, and that sould solve your problem.

Firewire Cable


Most electronic stores sell them. Make sure you get the right plug for your computer at the other end as there are several options.

FireWire i.Link which cable?


teedoff1980,

You can buy the FireWire kit at your local electronics store or department. Some kits come with a FireWire cable with USB connectors, as well as "ends" for that cable that come in both 4 and 6-pin configurations. Make sure you ask the store rep and read the package to ensure you have the right ends. You can also buy cables that are already appropriately "ended".

Most cables are 6 pin and connect to the 4 pin port (with a 4 pin end)

Hope this helps :)

Samsung SC-D363 won't load to my computer


If you are trying to move video that is stored on TAPE, you need to get a Firewire cable. Using the USB cable, you can only transfer photos and video that is stored on the Memory Stick Pro memory card (user-supplied). The Firewire cable has a standard IEEE-1394 male connector on the computer end and a mini IEEE-1394 male connector on the camera end. If you don't have a Firewire interface on your computer, you will need to get one. Good luck.
