    The cable you have - did it come with the camera?
    Check the Manual - if you have a software disk that came with the camera there is likely a bigger manual in PDF format.

How do I connect my K7 to a 1394 socket


Hi,

Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:

Available Ports:

  • USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
  • Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
  • Printer interfaces: n/a

You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.

I hope this helps!

Because this is an older video camera it does not have an updated connector to connect to computer. I am wondering if I would be able to purchase some sort of adaptor or something like that to download...


Does it have a "Firewire" port?

If so you can buy a firewire card and connctor cable.

If it just has a micro jack 3.5 mm, you may be able to get a microjack-comm port cable, you'll need software. (Filehippo.com)

Finally, I wouldn't bother with a PC, I'd copy it to a DVD recorder with a hard disk drive. Edit the downloaded video there, then burn to DVD disk.

How can i download the contents of my mini tape onto the pc ?


you don't convert the files, you just downlod them via a firewire comnnection.

If you have a mini dv (cassette) camcorder....
Your dv camcorder needs a firewire connection (ieee 1394) in order to download video, your PC probably did not come with a firewire port, so you will have to buy one and install it, since most computers (except possibly brand new) don't come with a firewire port, your camcorder did not come with a firewire cord so you have to purchase a cord too. Your camcorder did come with a USB cord and that is used for downloading stills from your camcorder. Make sure your camera is in playback mode.
Open your editing program and choose the capture mode.

The fine print in your manual makes reference to firewire (ieee 1394) connection....


thanks.

I require a link to download the software for a Panasonic NV-GS25 video camera to be able to transfer from tape to DVD/PC


As you may know, the Panasonic website has only the update files for the MotionDV Studio LE software that came with the camcorder. However, this DV camcorder has a Firewire connector. You just need ANY video editing software, the right Firewire cable (4 or 6 pin, or 4+6 pin cable), and a Firewire port (add a card to your computer , if it doesn't already have Firewire, aka IEEE 1394A).
  • Apparently, Vista and Win7 on many newer PC's come with something like Movie Maker. Mac OS X has iMovie. Both support Firewire devices.
  • DVD burners and computers with DVD burners usually come with some kind of burner software. Sometimes, they have a basic (Lite) video editing package - examples include Nero, Roxio, and Ulead. Even at the "Lite Edition" level, these video editing packages work with Firewire camcorders.

Need to know how to transfer video from digital camera to computer


To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:- 1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability)
2. Appropriate software/application.
If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed.
Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.

I have a Sony DCR-260 and I have the operating manual but I lost the computer manual and the cable that came with it. How do I download videos to a PC?


hi there
based on your camcorder model number it is digital 8 based, so assuming you are using digital 8 tapes you will need a firewire lead (£5) ish. you will also need a firewire input on your p.c. if you havn't got one you can get a card for about £10 and fit it yourself. its not hard, honest !
if you are using ordinary 8mm tapes you will need an anologue video card, bit more expensive but easy to fit. video editing software will be needed, try pinnacle studio version 7/8/9/ on e bay, should be less than £20.

hope this helps

Movie Won't Transfer Over to My Computer


Well it took me over an hour to figure this one out. Loathingly I loaded the Canon software onto my computer. Then instead of using the card reader in my hard drive I used the USB cable that came with the camera. I downloaded the movie onto my hard drive through the USB cable and PRESTO, it played perfectly on my computer with no problem. Hope that helps.
