Do you have a firewire cable? You should be able to use Windows Movie Maker to import footage as long as you have it connected via firewire.

Hope this helps!

Mini-DVD playback


http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900000562/DC210NIM-EN.pdf here is the manual look on page 62 for playback on a pc. you need a dvdrom drive. if you have one make sure you have software like windows media player 10 or 11, or powerdvd to play the movie. as for editing the video is a little bit more tricky. you are going to have to "rip" the video and then combine it in a program like windows movie maker with the other dvd that has been ripped too. when you are done editing in windows movie maker just choose avi or dvd type.

Capture video from Canon Vixia stopped working with iMovie


Video files come from Canon Vixia hg20 are in AVCHD format and this is a format which is difficult to be imported and edited by FCP and iMovie. So you have to convert AVCHD files to other easily edited video format, like FCP and iMovie preferred MOV format.

As for AVCHD Converter, have a try Aunsoft MTS Converter for Mac which is is a powerful video converter, player, editor for Mac and Windows. It can play many various movie files; it can encode movies to many formats, including iPod; it can cut, trim and join movies.

You can use this program to open and play most movie formats transport streams; edit them with crop and Trim;export them to QuickTime, AVI, DV and MPEG-4 files with more than professional quality, so you can easily import them in a DVD authoring tool, and use them with many other applications or devices.

Unable to import video to computer on sony handycam DCR-DVD703E


I have a Sony computer, Windows XP, and my camera records on tape, so the best I can do is give you some hints.

On my system, I first load a video editing program: Pinnacle Studio, Nero, or Windows Movie Maker and use that to pick up my video. I believe that Mac has at least one very good movie editing program. Load that first, and then use it to load your video file.

A Mac owner could probably give you more explicit directions.

Good Luck

EDITING HELP ME


Well, first, what kind of platform are you one? Mac? Windows? Both have decent editing programs that are available. If your using a Mac, plug in your camera to firewire or usb and fire up iMovie. A PC, plug in and try windows movie maker. They are fairly simple programs that make importing and editing pretty easy.
If you are looking for other options, check out Ulead's Video Studio FX, its about 150 bucks and claims to be user friendly.

Transfer Video From Camcorder to Computer


Here is what ya need to do, that is get the correct cable(s) to connect your Camcorder to your PC, usually USB or Firewire. Then install the software that will allow you to transfer the movie from the camera to your PC where you can then manipulate the files as ya wish with Movie Editing software. The "Other" way is to burn them to the small Camera Disk, place that disk in ya PC's CD/DVD then simply "Copy" the "Movie" to ya PC, and then once again ya can use Movie Making/Editing software to Join, Edit your movies. Another way is to connect the output A/V of your camera to your A/V input on your PC (if you have one).. using you Video software capture the Camera Video to the PC & Edit the resultant file, as B4. Windows Movie Maker works OK, but there are many Freeware programs that one can use.. have a "Google" for these programs .... AnyDVD, convertXtoDVD, Moive joining software, ShrinkDVD, I am sure you will have no trouble finding what ya need.

DV-PC recorder


DV-PC Recorder is a Windows XP only application that enables you to record images and sound on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by connecting a camcorder equipped with the DV CONTROL function to a computer using an IEEE1394 (DV) cable. DV-PC Recorder has the following features. 1. You can record movies simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape by pressing the start/stop button on the camcorder. 2. It enables long, continuous recordings, which you cannot achieve with the tape alone. (Approximately four and a half hour's worth of recording will fit on a 60GB hard disk.) 3. You can start editing the movies on the computer right after recording, as the images and sound are saved on the computer's hard disk. (Optional editing software is required to edit movies) 4. You can record movies on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by controlling the DV-PC Recorder from your computer.
