Although this post is rather old, I can tell you that the mini 4-pin firewire port is the bane of my existence. The 6-pin port is made rather sturdy with heavily shielded cable. The 4-pin uses the same heavy cable, but does not have the strength to support the cable, if it happens to droop. This causes pins to get slightly bent out of alignment, and upon re-insertion, you can get crushed pins if you are not VERY careful. Examine both your cable end and the port on your camera/deck - you will probably find one or more of the pins have been pushed back. Pray that it's the cable that's dead, and not the port in your camera/deck. I have a Canon XL1 and a Sony DSR-40 with the same problem - crushed pin in the unit's port. I'll have to spend $$$ to get these ports replaced.

How can i connect my camera to my pc because my windows is saying unknown device?


Most MiniDV camera have USB and Firewire port.
USB is used to transfer from SDCard to PC.
While FireWire (also called IEEE 1394) is used for video transfer into computer. All the drivers needed are part of windows OS (IEEE 1394).
Invariably today's laptops and yester-years desktops do NOT have firewire inbuilt. The only thing you are going to need is a cable and firewire card (IEEE 1394) If you computer does not have one.

Moreover, you will need a capture software. You have Windows movie maker, But its not going to do justice to the camera, better off getting a good editor, such as Adobe Premiere, or Sony Vegas, the software is about the best you can get but not easy to use, and takes some time to get to know, both offer 30 day trials.

How can I get Windows 7 Movie Maker to recognise input from my Sony DCR TRV18E Handycam?


On page 230 of the user manual, it describes how to transfer movies from the camera to a computer using an i.Link (IEEE 1394) cable. You will need the 4 pin i.Link cable and an IEEE 1394 connector on your computer in order to do this. You cannot use the USB cable to transfer the video from this camcorder -- you can only transfer still images using the USB cable.
You will have to buy this i.Link cable and (if you don't have a IEEE 1394 port on your computer) a IEEE 1394 adapter card for you desktop computer. If your laptop computer doesn't have a IEEE 1394 adapter, then you're pretty much out of luck.
Once you have the i.Link and 1394 issues resolved, then Movie Maker should then recognize the camera.

WE HAVE NOT CONNECT TO PC MYSamsung VP-D371i MiniDV, Digital Camcorder


From the user manual, I've discovered that you have to use a IEEE 1394 cable (see the jacks display on page 11) to be able to download the movies from your camera. The camera does not come with a IEEE 1394 cable -- it only comes with a USB cable, so you will have to buy the cable.
Unfortunately, most PCs do not come with a IEEE 1394 connector and you have to buy an adapter card for a desktop computer. If you laptop does not have a IEEE 1394 port, then you are out of luck.
Once you have the cable and the port on the computer squared-away, check page 87 of the user manual for directions on how to retrieve the the video from the camera to the computer.

How to connect panasonic nv-gs150 with dv to pc in 1394 port ?


You need to purchase a IEEE/1394 firewire. They run around $40-$55 for a 5 foot wire. The 1394 end goes into the computer and the other end goes to your AV/out port on the cam.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB


I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.
