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 come I can't play a video with AVCHD format on my laptop? My laptop is an HP Pavillion DV7


Each of the AVCHD camcorders ships with software designed to playback the files on your computer. Sony's HDR-SR1 and the newer HDR-SR5 both record video in the AVCHD format and ship with the Picture Motion Browser, which plays back AVCHD files on most computers. If you purchased one of the Panasonic AVCHD camcorders, the included HD Writer should allow you to playback video recorded with your camcorder.
  

While the bundled applications work, my personal preference, is Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra, which supports playback of the AVCHD files and a whole host of other high definition formats. In addition to playing back your HD camcorder files, PowerDVD Ultra plays back Blu-ray and HD-DVD disks (with the accompanying drives connected, of course). PowerDVD Ultra also makes it possible to expand your HD video editing options, by using the included codecs to render the AVCHD video in apps like VirtualDub.

Cyberlink PowerDVD ultra can be downloaded from here :

Camcoder ,PS3 or DVD player output to Laptop screen


I've had the same problem with two other unrelated HP input products in this area myself so I understand the pain. Media Center is not really well geared for nor is very friendly in the end user component input area. I'm assuming you've already tried playing a video file from your camcorder while setting up the Media Center input settings? Try a different software that will recognize your input card. Ideally, you should use any input software that came with the card itself from the manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer for a link to the original software bundle if you can't find it from their website or you may need to research your own replacement software solution for this product.

You cannot direclty hook it up, you will need a usb port, and a sandisk SD card reader. Then you can see photos. But for you to record videos, you need to play them on TV, because there are no ports that are like those of a camcorder. The camcorder gives the videos by tape, so you can only read them by tape.
Sorry

Firewire on Inspiron - Connecting Canon MD 120 camcorder


Browsing over the md120 specs, included should be a software disc for the usb connector, so it shouldn't matter whether you use an adapter or the 4 to 4 cable. This disc will have the drivers and software for using the camera in conjunction with your laptop. Have you tried this download for the camera.
http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010449.asp

Also check out this link. Towards the bottom under additional features it lists software, drivers and utilities, and at the bottom under supplied accessories it lists application software/usb driver. Go to the store you purchased this at or contact Cannon support and get the disc that was supposed to be included.

No firewire


Make sure your camera driver is up to date from ACER

Link to downloads for the Acer 5100 laptop

The only connectors on your camcorder are as follows:

1 x microphone
1 x headphones
1 x IEEE 1394 (FireWire/i.LINK)
1 x S-Video output
1 x composite video/audio output
1 x Control-L (LANC)
1 x DC power input

If you have an s-video on your laptop you can connect it with an s-video cable and audio cable (red and white one end, black the other end

I am looking at the computer on line and on the Left View, I see a 4 pin iDDD1394 port. You can use this to connect your camera,

Also, on the rear view you do have a s-video port.

You should have no problem connecting the computer and camcorder.

Importing video from dv camcorder


If your camcorder is using miniDV format(cassette) the best way is to connect it through the firewire IEEE 1394 cable and capture video on notebook. If your camcorder is ''trully'' digital and uses hard disk to store recordings then you really have no problems, just think of camcorder as a large memory-stick and connect it in that way to your notebook. Hope this helps.

Laptop to tv


Hi you don't have enough info to give a complete answer but maybe I can help. The modulator converts the video (and/or audio) output of a DVD player (or camcorder or video game or PC) into a channel 3/4 signal that is compatible with a TV's cable or antenna input. It makes it so the standard audio/video outputs and the cable input (even passed through a VCR) work simultaneously. So... The "S-Video to RCA" convertor plugs into the "Video In" on the modulator; this allows you to take your S-Video Signal OR your Composite Video to an "RF Coaxial Antenna" input signal. You should have 3 pcs. the S-video to 3-RCA cable and the coax cable and the modulator. Here is a link to a pic that should help http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/videoware_1965_3477147
