    I have the same problem with Sony handycam DCR-PC9 Mini DV, I'm using a USB connector going to my iMac, the iMovie software doesn't recognise that it is connected like a harddrive. Do I need other special software or a camera software update?
    My Nikon digital camera shows up on my desktop just fine.
    Thanks, Pat

Make sure you have a DV cable also know as a firewire cable. You will need some software to capture the video from your camera to your hard drive. Pinnacle Studio is an inexpensive system for capturing, editing, and producting videos to DVD.

Make sure you have a firewire port in the back of your computer.

I have a DCR-HC42, when I connect it to my laptop thru Firewire (I have Vista). The size of the video is too high. How to download the video from the camcorder in a normal size.

Video downloaded from your camcorder is in .AVI format. One cassette size in AVI format is around 14 gb. Video cannot be downloaded in smaller size. After tranferring video to your computer, you can save or convert to any other format of smaller size eg mp4 or DivX or Xvid.

Hi Heart of Chr....

Here is the USB driver for your Sony Handycam DCR-HC52e:

The Firewire driver is already bundled with Windows XP.

Software for viewing, editing and transferring:
DCRHC52 is compatible with Windows Movie Maker & Apple iMovie,meaning you can usually begin editing your footage straight away usingthe software already installed on your PC.

Hope this helps :)
Season's Greetings!

Download moving images to computer for duplication to dvd.

You will need to have a firewire cable at the very least. Then if you have a more Windows XP (or higher) PC equipped with an ieee1394 hardware or an apple computer ... you're all set to capture video from PC9 to other format like youtube or DVD.
