Unfortunately, it's not exactly a trivial process. The basic steps are as follows:

1) connect the camcorder to the computer
2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer
3) optionally, edit the video file
4) upload the file from the computer to youtube.com

1) the camcorder has 4-pin 1394 (also called firewire or i-link) jack, and the computer (if equipped) either has 6-pin 1394 jack or 4-pin 1394 jack (on some notebooks). if your computer doesn't have a 1394 jack, you need to buy a 1394 adapter (eg. pricegrabber.com)

2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer hard drive using editing software or a software utility designed for doing just that. this software may come with the camcorder or the 1394 adapter.

3) optionally, use editing software to take an excerpt from the file, rearrange parts of the video, add titles, etc., and output a new file

4) upload the file to youtube.com. there are some guides on their website as well (eg. youtube.com)

I hope that helps.

i don't know if this a great solution. anytime i tried to port video from the camera to the computer(vista), i couldn't get it to work. i bought a dazzle, but sorry folks i think it's junk. take video, stills and DV to memory stick then read it from there. it works great. i spent alot of time trying diffrent ways and this way is the best. pull you're dvd's from there too. one more thing- lightscribe and label flash are extremely over rated.

How do i download my pictures from my handycam trv49e so that my tapes can be reused


Search Google and found this:
The Sony CCD-TRV49 camcorder doesn't have a digital output, so you have to capture and convert the analog composite video signal and audio signals. On the PC side you need an analog video capture board, a sound card to capture the audio and a video capture/editing software. You can also find on the market external USB devices that contains all these things.

The composite video is the yellow RCA connector that goes straight to your capture board.
The left audio is the white RCA connector and the right audio is the red RCA connector. These are mixed on a stereo jack plug that enters into soundcard input socket.

Pass through


Convert and/or record any analog PAL video source to digital video via the analog inputs. Analog PAL video can also be passed through the Digital Handycam® camcorder directly into a PC via the i.LINK® interface in real-time for easy PC editing of your analog footage

Can you connect the handycam directly to a tv to watch.


Analog Audio/Video Output(s) : Yes (Multi A/V) S-Video Output(s) : Yes (optional accessory)
you might have to buy the proper cables. Also the TV will have to have AV input capability or your stereo receiver.

Six years ago, I purchased my Sony Handycam CCD_TRV308 Hi-8. Now I want to download some old videos. Will this cam corder allow me to transfer videos to my computer?


You likely need a video capture card that will accept analog video (several makers like Pinnacle--not a recommend);
...alternatively, if you have a digital video camera, better ones have an analog video input jack by which you can use the digital camcorder as an interface (with analog to digital conversion), and thence to the computer via the firewire cable.
...This technique can also be used to transfer VHS from your old VHS player from its analog output, via the digital camcorder to the PC.
..This way you can transfer into a NLE (non-linear editor) like Adobe Premier, Final Cut, Sony Vegas, AVID, etc ; and edit your video now that it has been digitized. And the Hi8 as you know will have much better resolution potential than the VHS.

Need adaptor for older Sony analog camcorder - CCD-TRV70 DC 6V


You need to get a Digital to Analogue converter such as the Canopus ADVC110 A/D Converter. (circa $225). There may be cheaper alternatives. (you might also be able to use a digital camcorder that has a built in Analogue to digital converter):
 Canopus 77010150100 ADVC110 Converter

The Canopus comes with a 6-pin firewire cable. Since your Dell Studio has a 4 pin Firewire (actually called iLink) you will also need a 6-pin to 4-pin cable or an adapter:
 Firewire 6-PIN To 4-PIN Cable

 Cables To Go - 27028 - Firewire 6-Pin Female 4-Pin Male Adapter

You hook your Sony up to the A/D converter with audio and video cables (usually supplied with your camcorder) and hook the converter to you Dell with a firewire cable. Then you capture the video using some video capture software. I don't know what comes with windows these days.

I would like to convert a VHS tape to DVD. I have (1) the Sony Handycam Digital 8 DCR TRV310, (2) Panasonic VCR, and (3) Macbook Pro with iMovie. I don't know much about the digital camera's ability to...


I think you are expecting camera to covert VCR analog video-audio signal into digital so it can be record in Macbook?

Camcorder will not do this job and you need to hookup VCR with DVD Recorder to burn DVD of VHS tape.

How do I hook up a Sony Handycam Video 8 CCD-TRV41 NTSC to view on television?


the camera should have "a/v"out rca jacks.
yellow is video,other is audio,hook it to your tv or vcr.

YES,you can capture to your computer,but youll need a device with capturing/editing software.

dazzle,is an external adapter,and pinnicle used to sell a package,with an internal pci card,which is capable of importing "analog"(your old 8mm,or from vcr),OR digital(via firewire)if you decide to buy a newer camcorder.

BOTH products come with editing/dvd burning software(which you WILL need)and I can say from experience,pinnicle is easy to learn!!
