Question about Sony DCRSX63 Camcorder

Open Question

I have a sony DCR Sx63 handycam One month new, about 1 hr total recording time Pictures on camera flip screen seem clear, fine. When I upload to my computer (windows xp) they are rather dull and blurry. I use a tripod, so shaking is not an issue. I upload video clips from my son's cheapo $80 camcorder and those pictures are fine, so I think my computer is fine. I haven't had this blurring problem in any other context. I upload the video clips using the sony PMB software that comes with the camera. Process is quick and easy, no troubles or error messages. Also, I've worked on some of the video clips with windows movie maker, and get the same blurry results. I posed this question at another repair site, and one tech said I had a problem with RESOLUTION, but gave no clue how to adjust, analyze or fix resolution. Can someone help me out here? I would appreciate very much.

SOURCE: i cant transfer my videos

You don't say what type of connection you are trying to use. This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. The way it works on my computer, the camera is controlled by the computer software through the Firewire cable. Confusingly, Sony call Firewire "i.Link".

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card. If you have a MAC, you may already have a port.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other. My camera came with the correct lead.
