No input for i-LINK cable for Sony Camcorder

I want to import videos to my 5100 but the Sony camcorder (HDR-HC9) requires an i-LINK cable (IEEE1394) hook-up. I have the cable with the camera but no where to plug in to my computer. What can I do?

If your computer does not have an i-Link port (also known as firewire) you would need to purchase a PCMCIA card in order to transfer video to your computer such as this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124014

are the connectors on the camera the same exact size, or is one bigger than the other? If they are NOT the same size go with the kind of card I mentioned above (it's a 6-pin firewire cable). If the connectors are the same size you need to get either a 6-4 pin firewire cable, or get a card that has a 4-pin connector

How to project an image from an external device from a Sony Camcorder HDR-PJ240E?


Simple solution. You connected an output to an output. The Camcorder 'outputs' image from it so you need to plug it into an input on your TV. You will then see image from the camcorder on your tv.

How to transfer sony dcr-hc26 videos to pc using usb cable thanks


The Sony HDR-HC26 is a miniDV tape based camcorder. No surprises if you can't get USB streaming working.

ALL miniDV tape based camcorders transfer DV-format video by conneting the DV port of the HD camcorder to the Firewire port of your computer. USB won't work. The "DV" in miniDV = Digital Video. It is as digital as the digital video from flash memory or hard disc drive or DVD based camcorders - only better because it is not compressed as much as the others.

Memory cards are not the only way to store digital video - and while not as good as miniDV tape, memory cards are not as bad as DVD based consumer camcorders...

Firewire IEEE1394, DV and i.LINK are all the same thing.

If your computer does not have a firewire port, hopefully it has an available expansion slot (PCI for desktops; PCMCIA or ExpressCard for laptops), so you can add one.

I have a Sony Handycam TRV325E. I've lost the


if your computer is running windows vista or 7.forget the software.if you have win xp i don't think it's economical to buy the disc.why don't you just download the usb driver from this website:
http://www.sonydigital-link.com/dime/camcorders/sd/d8/d8.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=DCR-TRV325E
with the driver installed you can get the PC communicate with the camcorder so you can get your pictures from a memory stick to import to your PC. now with videos, that would have to go a different route and you don't need the software for that.the video import would have to go through the dv (ilink or ieee1394) out jack from the camcorder to an ieee1394 port in your PC.your computer should have the required ieee1394 card installed and enabled.if you do it should then be a plug-and-play connection.all you would need is a compatible dv cable compatible with both cam and PC and a video capturing application like windows moviemaker to import your files of the tape.see p.209 of manual fig.59. hope this helps.thanks:)

I have a Sony HDR-SR1 with video on the hard drive. When I connect it to my iMac via as USB cable, I can see the camera on my desktop, but can't seem to import anything via IMovie. What am I doing...


It is a Hard Disk type Camcorder. Follow the steps as mentioned on the Link given below to transfer the video from the Camcorder to a Mac Computer.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C455202


NOTE: Movie player applications must support MPEG-2 for standard-definition video or AVCHD for high-definition video to open and play these files. Refer to the software manufacturer of the movie player application you are using for additional information and any available updates.

The Apple Macintosh Web site offers MPEG2 Works 4 Advanced 4.2 for download.

The Apple Macintosh Web site has an MPEG-2 Playback component for Quicktime 6 or 7 available for purchase.

Troubleshooting information about importing MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips with Apple iMovie software is available on the Apple Macintosh Web site.

For the Apple Mac OS X operating system, DVD authoring software (Capty DVD/VCD 2 ) and MPEG editing software (Capty MPEG Edit EX) is available for purchase from the PIXELA Web site. These applications are for standard-definition video only.



Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
