Question about Video Cameras

Connecting to computer

Hi, I have a Sony Digital 8 HandyCam which I bought in 2001/2. My husband lost the instruction book. I'd like to connect it to my Mac G5 to transfer movies to CD's. Can I do this with a usb cable? Will I need any translation software or should iMovie be able to read it? Pam

    I have exactly the same problem, I need to download from the tape of the Sony DCR-HC24E as my husband has lost the instruction manual. I used to put them onto VHS tape but I would like to put them onto DVD if at all possible.

You both need to use a firewirecable to download video-not usb-the camcorders always have a 4 pin connection and you will need a 6 pin on other end for mac or a 4 pin for window laptops-also use 6 pin for most desktops-when buying cable ask for 4 to 4 or 4 to 6 pin firewirecable-imovie should be fine in windows use movie maker which is in windows already under program menu-says dv on cam to connect-make sure you have firewire port on computer also-if not add a card to include one

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-TRV720 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder. How can I transfer the video from these tapes to DVD? The cabling seems too old school to link up to my computer in order to burn a DVD.


This model has iLink: IEEE 1394 firewire port. If you don't have a firewire card, you can probably find one pretty cheap on the internet (try ebay).
Windows has movie maker, which when the camera is connected, will allow you to capture the video from the camera on the comptuer, although there is no DVD burner software at least on the XP version (not sure about Vista). I use Nero for the whole process: capture, edit, burn to DVD.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD TRV211.


Hi,
If you are asking about CCD-TRV211 camcorder?
CCD-TRV211 is analog Video-8 camcorder so its movie data is not digital and can not be connected directly with computer via USB port.
Best and easiest was is to connect camera with DVD Recorder and burn DVD, this will convert analog movie file into digital data and you can copy it to hard disk of computer.
