    Thanks for the comment, however I should have been more specfic, the cable that comes with the handycam is only a 9 pin plug (i think) and this cannot be connected to the laptop but after reading other forums i see I need a firewire cable and not a usb anyway, with my old PC the hadycam connects okay but the movie from the tape does not?

I used a DV cable to connect the PC 5 to Panasonic DVD writer for copying the video to DVD harddisk. The DVD writer complains that the DV format is not compatible. I thought all DV connection is 1394...


Yes you are right, the Firewire is standard, but even that is not always standard to be honest, neither is USB standard these days, as we have 3 types not one now.
Most problems are with the DVD because they are not standard, nether will they ever be.

Dcr pc5 camera to computer connection


Your PC5 should have FireWire as standard, but Sony use a smaller 4 pin connector which looks a little bit like the tiny USB connectors on modern phones and still cameras. The main difference between the 4 pin and the standard FW400 6 pin, is no power is supplied to the 4 pin, so the camera must be powered from the internal battery or an external supply
The original Imacs came with such a cable, but you can buy these from various suppliers. It's part number F3N401-06 from Belkin or M8706G from Apple
