Re: tring to connect a sony video camera to my Gateway...
Macromedia's Flash Player is commonly used within video handling packages as a utility to enable compatibility across systems and platforms. It is available as a free download from Macromedia via the Internet. Suggest you install it as instructed to enable you to complete your DVD write.

check your cd burner device if correctly connected to your pc. see and first boot if recognizable like seeing your ide's and first boot. see if your cd burner device is connected. use NERO as your burning software hope that helps!
you should be using a firewire cable to transfer video from cam to comp-cable comes 4 pin to 6 or 4 pin to 4 pin use 4 x4 for laptop and 4 x 6 for tower-make sure comp has port-not usb which is only for stills-once cam is connected or before open movie maker in vista and it should work or connect cam and computer should recognize it
I'm not sure why the camcorder is giving you an error message... but you should know that this "Burn VCD" thing is a pretty nasty hack from Sony.
This will only work in conjunction with the Sony "Picture Package" software.. you have to have that running and properly set up for the video transfer via USB to work. And if it does work, the quality will be horrible -- 1/4 the resolution of you DV images, and arguably worst than VHS tape.
For a real video transfer from any mini-DV camcorder, you need a Firewire connection (Sony calls this i.Link), and a video capture utility (Windows Movie Maker will work, that's included with most versions of Windows these days). A good video package will allow you to convert the DV footage into DVD, which maintains the quality of the DV camcorder's native format.
I am wrting in regards to my Sony Handycam DCR-HC36. I am having problems with the Picture Package software when I try to load my video. When I try to transfer my videos (from my Handycam) to my Pesonal Computer, the picture package(software) menu does not appear on my PC(The picture package software is already installed).
Everytime I try to click on the Picture Package Icon on my desktop, there is a pop-up that says I "must install Macromedia Flash Player for Application to continue".
I went ahead and installed the Adobe (Macromedia) Flash Player and it still doesn't work when I try to click on the Picture Package Icon. The pop-up still comes up. I also, re-installed some of the requirements for the for the camera to work such as Direct X and Windows Media Player.
The problem is most likely within my PC(maybe I'm missing another type of software???), what do you think are my options in resolving this matter?
