Did you check Sony's support website? What operating system? XP or Vista? here's a link to updated drivers for XP.

I WANT TO TRANSFER VEDIO INTO MY COMPUTER FROM DCR-TRV285E BUT ITS NOT TRANSFERING


If you're using USB interface to transfer with Windows 7 or Vista Operating System, it is not compatible. Unfortunately, the USB streaming the Camcorder is not compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7 Operating System. However, you can use either i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Vista and Windows 7 Computer. I have provided a link where you can view the steps to transfer videos using i.LINK interface:

I have provided another link where you can view the steps to transfer videos using A/V interface:

Please let me know if you're using any other operating System. fixya.com/users/shajanrs

Hello! I'm using a softwer : movie shaker 3.1. for Sony Handycam DCR-IP5E Micro MV Digital Camcorder and it is unable to scan longer clips then 2-3minutes,that is the maximum... Has anyboy idea for this...


Hi,
You need to use DV Port in camcorder to transfer movie files into computer that must has same DV Port.
USB port can not be used to transfer movie files as its just to provide still picture data.
DV Port is maybe labeled as iLink in your camcorder so hook camcorder with computer with DV cable.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

If you want to transfer video using a firewire you need a 1394 connection on your PC. The Sony DCR-HC21 will also allow you transfer video using a usb cable.

Can I send data from the Handycam DCR-DVD105 to my macbookpro???


Hi!
Unfortunately, your camera does not have a USB jack, and does not have any way to transfer digital data from the disc to your Macbook.
I'd suggest loading your disc to a computer with a non-slot loading dvd drive, download your footage there, and either burning the data to a regular-sized dvd or putting the data in a flash drive to transfer it to you Macbook.
Hope this helps!
