If your pc has firewire IEEE 1394 ports then it does not need them added, if it does not then it needs them added,
firewire, IEEE 19394 cables have a pc end that is flat D shaped and a device end that is rectangular with one side bent in.
if you have a socket on the backplane of the pc that looks like the ones in the background

Hi, I 've got a Handycam Digital 8 (DCR-TRV270E) and Windows Vista Home Basic and have lost the software for my camera and my PC doesn't recognize the device when it's imported to usb port. How can I...


Are you connecting using USB or Firewire? Unfortunately there are no USB Windows Vista drivers for your particular camcorder but using a Firewire(i.link) Cable should work. For further reference here is the support site for your camera. Camcorder Support Site

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.

Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

CANNOT CONNECT DCR-TRV285E PAL ON MY COMPUTER WITH OS- VISTA


Dear Sony camera user,
Yes the Sony camera needs a driver in Windows PC's and no drivers are yet available for Win Vista or Win 7 PC user's.
However if your camera has, and I am sure it has a Firewire cable (Plug marked with windmill marker) then you do not need a driver, just the cable to fit your camera to the Firewire port (Marked with windmill) on your PC.
Your cable will be available from Sony, and Maplin Electrical, PC World and good camera shops at around £14.
Good luck,
from
David

Unable to transfer video information onto PC ACER ASPIRE using windows Vista for editing by windows movie maker. Interface on PC is via USB. If software driver for firewire or 1394 interface is available...


If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893


NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.


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

Vista Driver for Sony TRV330


No driver required. Plug the supplied cable into the computer firewire port and the Sony "i-Link" port on the TRV-330 and turn on the TRV-330 in VCR mode. Works in XP and Vista out of the box.
