Any laptop that has an iLink 1394 (firewire on apple computers) port and a DVD burner can do it. Any apple laptop with a superdrive (dvd burner) can do it with iMovie/iDVD, and any windows computer with the i.LINK port and Windows Movie Maker can do the job. I know most (if not all) sony, dell, acer and HP laptops come with the i.LINK port standard, just double check the model when you look at the specs. You'll want at least 1gb of ram (preferably 2GB, especially if you're running windows vista), and the firewire cable to connect the computer to the minidv camera (6 pin to 4 pin if you get an apple computer, 4-4 pin if it's a windows notebook)

Problem is w aln & blootoot driver


Hi,
Please be informed that any hardware device needs a driver software to run within a PC, and the driver software depends on the Hardware Make/Model and the Operating System software you are using in your PC to operate it.You will get the Driver software of any hardware within the CD provided with the hardware part at the time of its purchase. The hardware may be an entire PC,Laptop,VGA card, sound card, LAN card,webcam,printers etc.


If you do not have the CD or misplaced it somewhere then you need to download the driver software to get going. Thus you need to know all the above information to get the exact software your PC needs. As you have not mentioned the Hardware Make/model and Operating System you are using, i am unable to give you the direct download link.
However you can download the same by visiting the 'software downloads' section of the website of the hardware brand you have purchased. You just need to Google the name of the brand and visit their website and search for the download section.


If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Thanks.

I want to download hp photosmart 4700 software to my dell inspiron mini.


Go and purchase the software get the disc and install it. That is all there is to it. It should have come with your printer you have. If you lost it or just want it for the coolness of it. Click Here if you cannot download it because of a Win 7 issue allow the software to finalize even if it says not certified go ahead and allow it to load.
Win 7 update may pick this up and install the upgrade for it. Be sure to be online when this is going on also check online to get driver updates as an option as well if it comes up. I hope that this assists you.

How can I connect my Sony handycam DCR-DVD710 to my MacBook computer to download movie footage? thanks


We used a Firewire to connect to the 1394 ports between the camera and computer, it is thicker than the usual wire that connects to the USB ports to download still images. You'll need software like File Maker to download the video. Good luck!

I have a canon powershot A700 digital camera. I just purchased a Dell mini laptop computer and can't find software to support the canon download. How do I download my pictures on my mini with windows 7...


The driver is included in the OS; see the Microsoft compatibility site at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Hardware&p=Canon%20PowerShot%20A700%206MP%20Digital%20Camera&v=Canon&uid=1100B001&l=en-US&pf=0&pi=0&s=powershot%20A700&os=64-bit for details.

The Canon site has the ZoomBrowser EX software for Win7 here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a700#ServiceAndSupport if you need it. Just select your version of Win7 (32- or 64-bit).

You should be able to use Paint to import pictures from your camera. (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint. Then File > Import from Camera or Scanner > From Camera )

The Microsoft Live Photo Gallery also will also provide this option if you download the package.

I hope this helps.

Can u brief me about drivers


Computer drivers are software programs. It helps a computer identify and run the hardware installed in it. For Example, without drivers the computer will not be able to distinguish between a sound card and a modem. Most devices on the computer need drivers to run. Computer accessories, such as printers, scanners and digital cameras also need drivers to function. All computer hardware and accessories that is purchased comes with drivers either in a floppy or a CD. The computer automatically loads the drivers when inserted in the drives. Drivers can also be downloaded from manufacturer's websites. You can download the most recent or updated drivers for a hardware.

Wish to activate webcam for a newly purchase HP dv-7 Pavilion PC


Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
