Go here for the camera's operating guide download:  http://esupport.sony.com/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DCRHC40   Click here for the guide in PDF:  http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRHC40.pdf
Before connecting your camcorder to another device like a computer with a USB or I.LINK cable, make sure to insert the connector plug in the proper direction.  If you insert it forcibly in the wrong direction, the terminal may be damaged or it may cause a malfunction.
If you have inserted it correctly, then your computer should recognize the new device and automatically install the camera driver.  If it does not, then you will have to use the disk the camera came with or go to the manufacturer's website to download the drive.  Connect your camera to your computer again.  A window should pop up giving you the option to transfer the video to your computer.  I recommend choosing your desktop.  Any number of players should play the video.  If your movie is .avi, I would suggest downloading  DivX (http://www.divx.com/) to play your video from your computer.

I AM UNABLE TO COPY VIDEOS FROM TAPE TO PC


Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE cable.

Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.



Thank you for using FixYa!

Conversion vhs to dvd


I can only offer you 1 option for this case.
In converting the VHS video tape to DVD you can use computer. All you need to have is the VHS player with RCA audio video cables. Then a computer that has video capture card or USB capture card. This will take time but you can just transfer all the copyrighted videos to DVD and to computer data (post to internet)

*Needs realtime transfer VHS to Computer with the prefered resolution option.
*Burn to DVD, it will depends on your DVD drive speed.

Transfer video from tape to computer


mjtlj:

You will need a firewire cable to successfully transfer video from your tape to your computer. It also greatly helps to have a firewire port on your computer. Once you have connected your firewire port on your camera to the firewire port on your computer, you can use windows movie maker to transfer video to your computer. (File > Import for Digital Video Camera)

If this has helped you, please report this problem as fixed :)

Transfering video to Mac


Digital video on the ZR400 is transferred to a computer only via the DV out port, which will connect to a firewire port on a PC or a Mac. USB will not transfer video, only images to and from the card.
