You can use a card reader to transfer your file from your handycam to your computer. Remove the memory card in your camera and insert it to the card reader and insert it to your computer to transfer your recorded video.
Since Windows Vista doesn't support USB Streaming, it's not possible to transfer the videos to the Computer using the USB connection. However, you may transfer the videos to the Computer using an i.Link or an AV connection. The AV port is similar to the Composite port of the TV. i.LINK is the same as Fire-wire/IEEE1394. It is a D Shaped connector of either 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. However, it's required to have the Analog or the i.Link Capture Card installed on the Computer to stream Videos using the AV and the i.Link connection respectively. It's required to purchase either a 4 - pin to 4 - pin or a 4 - pin to 6 - pin i.LINK / Fire-wire cable depending on the number of pins on the i.LINK / Fire-wire port of your computer (since Camcorder will have only 4PIN i-LINK, while the Computer may have a 4PIN or 6 PIN i.LINK port). If your computer does not feature this port, you may contact your Computer retailer to install a separate i.LINK Capture card in your Computer. The software and driver to be used for video transfer will be supplied by the computer manufacturer (if the computer came with an i.LINK interface) or else by the i.LINK card manufacturer.

CCD-TRV58 is analog camcorder and can not be connected with computer directly as camcorder does not have USB or iLink/ DV ports. Computer needs digital format movie data to store / edit files. You need to hook camcorder audio-video out to DVD recorder and burn DVD of camcorder movie so you will get digital format of movie. Put that DVD in computer and copy files for further process.
Hi, If you are asking about CCD-TRV211 camcorder? CCD-TRV211 is analog Video-8 camcorder so its movie data is not digital and can not be connected directly with computer via USB port. Best and easiest was is to connect camera with DVD Recorder and burn DVD, this will convert analog movie file into digital data and you can copy it to hard disk of computer.
If model number is correct i.e CCD-TRV67, means its analog camera and can't not be connected directly ( USB ) with PC. Suggestion is to record movie on DVD by any DVD-Recorder to get analog signal in digital format. Now you can transfer it in PC.
Hope this info will help you and if you find it helpful, give vote as fixya.
I have a sony handycam ccd-trv 308 hi8 analog camcorder and I was trying to transfer videos from it to my computer. However, when I plug the S-video cable to the handycam and my computer, nothing happens. Does my computer require a driver to recognize the handycam because I cannot find any in the sites of sony for my handycam's model. Or am I using the wrong wire?
