Transferring movie from Mini DV to laptop

I borrowed this camera for a graduation and have no manual. There's about 20 minutes' worth of movie on a mini DV tape. How do I transfer this movie to my laptop (which has a CD/DVD burner in it)? Thank you.

You will require a firewire cable.
Usually a 4 pin to 6 pin cable. 4 pin to camera 6 pin to computer, assuming you PC has a fireiwre socket.
PC computer have Movie Maker as part of the OS.
Connect with the above cable and you should be good to go.

I've lost the installation disc and want to transfer mini dv films from my canon mv930 to my computer


According to page 80 of the user manual for this camera (click here for manual), the installation disk will not help you with transferring movies from your camera to your computer.

The instructions state that you will need a computer with a 4 or 6 pin DV (firewire) interface adapter, a 4 to 4 pin or 4 to 6 pin DV interface cable, and the movie software that came with your computer. According to the user manual, drivers for this DV interface are built-in to Windows 98 and later versions of Windows.

Assuming you have a Windows computer, I would suggest using Windows Movie Maker to import and edit your movies from your camera. If you have a Mac, then iMovie will be able to handle this very nicely.

The 4 to 4 DV interface cable is available here: (click here)

The 4 to 6 DV interface cable is available here: (click here)

Your computer will have to have a 4 or 6 pin firewire adapter either built-in to it or provided by an add-on card of some sort.

If you provide the make, model number, and operating system of your computer, I may be able to suggest some sources for the firewire adapter if available.

Thanks for using FixYa. If this solution was helpful, please choose either 3 or 4 thumbs-up to show that it helped you.

Can transfer the data from dcr HC28 (mini dv) to a computer. If yes how.


You can transfer mini dv movie files through DV Link (iLink) on camcorder, plug DV / IEEE1394 cable in camcorder and computer to import camera movie files in computer. It is necessary that your computer should have IEEE1394 port.

I cant import my movies from my panasonic nv_gs15


A DV cable is required only if your camera is having a DV port, without which it is not possible to transfer the movies. only way is getting it done from outside professionals.
