You will use the DV (firewire) jack on your camcorder. It is located on the back of the camcorder under the door for the battery. Depending on what type of connector your computer has, you will need to get a firewire cable (also known as IEEE-1394a cable). The connector on your camcorder is a 4-pin connector. You will either have that same looking connector on your computer (some laptops now have the 4-pin connector) or a 6-pin connector (D shaped). how do i get video - 884068d.jpg This pic is of a 4-pin to 6-pin cable. These are available at many electronic stores and online. To be safe, have your camcorder powered off when connecting to the computer. Once you have connected the cables, turn your camcorder on and insert the tape that you would like to transfer. Your computer should recognize it and install the appropriate driver. Most computers have some sort of free video editing program (like Windows Movie Maker). Depending on the software, you may have the option to import the entire video tape or only parts.

Hope this has helped you.

    My Windows 7 doesn't recognize the camcorder using the firewire connection. And Sony tells me no updated driver for it. So, how do I get my computer to recognize the camcorder so I can upload video to the computer?

    The first thing that we would suggest doing is to try uploading on someone else's computer (that does not have Windows 7). You need to make sure that your firewire (DV jack) is actually working properly. As far as the updated driver information...not so sure what to tell you about that. Sometimes it will prohibit the camcorder from talking to your computer. We operate on Windows Vista and have had no problem with that.

Where can i get a sony vx1000 for around 5000 bucks in good condidtion


Is there a reason you want the vx1000? They have updated this model several times as this unit came out in 1995. I am sure you could find one for that price being as they aren't even worth that much anymore. You can purchase a much better more modern camera from sony for your 5000$. If you check out ebay there are a bunch of them you can get one for about 700$ give or take.

Hello, I'm about to buy VX1000 webcam, but I wonder if there will be any conflict with the build-in mic in my laptop (HP, XP Pro SP3) or not. Other makes have dedicated cable with 3,5mm jack to hook the...


Shouldn't be any problem. The VX1000 has a built-in mic and is accessed via the USB connection. When you use applications like MSN Messenger or Yahoo Messenger then you can specify which cam to use (if your laptop has a buit-in one), and also which mIc. So you could if you wanted use the laptop mic and VX1000 cam, or use the mic in the cam.
