Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV140 Digital Camcorder
You will use the DV (firewire) jack on your camcorder. This is located under your A/V out jack (towards the front of the camcorder under the light). 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).
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 (playback mode) 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 helps you.
