If you need a visual on it, there is a video on www.HandBookLive.com under Electronics. The example is Belkin IEEE 1394 cable (Firewire and I-Link compatable) and it connects digital camera to a laptop.

Hey .. no matter what the camcorder is .. u can use both the cables .. the USB or the firewire.. however ,just for ur info, firewire will take up a very huge space of 100-200 mb for just 2-3 minutes of video.. and for a sony , u need only the original sony firewire cable .. which is about 15-20$$ , other firewire cables won't work.. i also bought a firewire cable from ebay .. but it never works ..further research showed that only the original ones work.. USB cable is the recommended cable to be used...

pls rate ..

Convert analouge video into digital format


The analogue video format can be converted only with a conversion software/ harware installed into your PC. This might be expensive and is used by studios for conversion. The analogue video is processed and compressed before it is converted and written to a disc. On the other hand you can use the new camcorders to input the analogue to be written into the drive/hard disc/ which can be transferred to a PC in digital format. Hope you try this out. Good day

Hi, I am trying to find the right lead to attach my camcorder (sony handycam, CCD-TRV218E PAL) to my pc to record tape to disc. Can you tell me the name of the correct lead. Thank you


Yes I think you are going to need the normal Sony Firewire cable, available from all good camera shops, PC World and Maplin, you are looking at around £15.
All the best.

I can't transfer my video on pc from tape. my camera works ,i have conected it with the pc but it doesn't recognized. SONY CCD-TRV428E


to transfer video from your camcorder to your pc you will need a firewire cable (ieee 1394). only with this cable you will be able to transer video.
you will also need a firewire port on your pc.
if you don't have one then you can buy a firewire pci card.

Hello,
Sony handycam model starts with CCD-XXXX shows that its analog camcorder and its picture signal is analog. You can't connect directly camera with PC to transfer files. You need to install MPEG card or some thing like that in PC 1st and this card will digitize analog picture signal into compatible format.
