SOURCE: exporting video

ok, this is only a PC experience(via USB) but it may be the issue you face:

importing video has one catch with this camera---always have to remind myself:

you have to set the camera to playback mode (pretty normal, only use PC mode to get still photos off the SD card)

but before you hook up here's the catch:

go into the menu, setup screen on the camera itself. there you will find you have to choose between something like "act as webcam" or "DV playback". The camera can be a webcam, but it cannot do that and send video to the computer.

this is the setting I always forget---and I don;t even use it as a webcam that often.

hope this helps you too

USB streaming does not work for Windows Vista. Use the firewire/ilink connection instead.

SOURCE: can not connect mini dv camcorder to sony vaio laptop

there are many post on various sites that state the same as you ihave the same prob with a sony which i paid £999,00 for and it wont connect i have been researching this problem for months on and of and cannot get any further, what may help you is some information that i have discovered , there are diffrent vers of firwire difrent baud rates this could be one reason for non detection ms sp1 has a diffrent ver to sp2 it is not easy to reinstall sp1 1394 as you need to diable cabbinet files to stop the reloading of the deleted sp2 speed 1394,ther are a few hotfixes avilable from ms on xp not suer about vista also if you plug a faster 1394 device into your machine it could diasble the slower ones , and now for the the killer any manufactur that incorporates 1394 in ther package has to purchase an extremly expensive license and microsoft are heavy into the development of usb stuf and are not concentrating on 1394 hence very little or no support, the only thing you could try is download virtual pc free from ms download site and install the op sys that pertains to the age of the cam good luck

Unfortunately dv or also called mini firewire is a firewire cable. There is no mini to USB cable out there. On the other hand it is very inexpensive to add a firewire card to your computer if you have any available expansion ports. here's an example on Amazon but you can find them much cheaper if you look around;

How can I download video from a sony mini_dv camcorder to my laptop which does not have a firewire connection?


IEEE 1394 or firewire is the only reliable method.
If you just want to get the footage to a computer for playback only then:
There are USB converters on the market.
Most covert the files to non-editable codecs so if you wish to edit the footage:
You could transcode those file back to DV but this is a bad workflow.Having a computer with a firewire port and appropriate editing software is your best option.

I am trying to transfer some footage that's currently stored on tape to my MAC. Unfortunately my MAC is only picking up the footage that's stored on the memory of my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV325E. Any...


This type of camera downloads video with a Firewire (Sony call this i.Link) connection. Some mini-DV and D8 cameras have a USB connection which is used for stills ONLY.

There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading video to computer at THIS LINK You will need to select Macintosh as the operating system (and press the Transfer to Mac button), then Mini-DV as the camera type, then select the type of connection. You are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire).

Hi, I am trying to import from my Canon MV 600 ( Tape not digital ) into a mac pro. I got the DV to firewire lead but the computer doesnt seem to recognise the camera. Many thanks Billy


Hi in order to get footage off your camera through Firewire i.e DV you will have to use a software to capture the footage. You can use iMovie to capture the footage off the camera.
Open Apple System Profiler (it's in the Utilities folder) and check to see if your camera appears in the FireWire section.

If your camera is connected via FireWire and is turned on, follow one or more of these tips to re-establish the connection to the camera.
  • Turn the camera off and back on again.
  • Disconnect the FireWire cable from your computer and reconnect it. Do the same at the camera as well. If the camera is connected through a FireWire hub, try connecting the camera directly to the computer.
  • Some cameras need to be set to "VTR", "VCR", or "DV" mode in order to communicate with a computer. Check your camera's documentation for information on how to set your camera to this mode if needed
Hope this helps.

How do I transfer the footage I recorded to PC?


The USB cable is only to download still images recorded on the memory card, using the software that came with the camera. To download video, you need to connect to a computer with a Firewire cable, and have video editing software on your computer to communicate with the camera.

JVC camera software GR-D70 for windows vista


Like most I have searched the web for drivers, preferably free ones. I emailed JVC Australia who responded with tis solution.

The camera has a connection called DV. The DV connection is used with a cable called Firewire.
Firewire is a driver less cable and will allow you to stream you video footage across from the camera to your PC.

USB is used for data transfer and need drivers, you would use this mainly to transfer still images or data files off a HDD camera.
If you use firewire and the DV connection you will stream the footage across to the PC and the PC will capture the footage as it is playing.

The firewire is about $15 and can be purchase from stores such as **** Smith, Bing Lee, Harvey Normans and Tandy. I would suggest that you take a photo of the connections on your PC as there are two types of DV connections. (4pin - 6pin)

Laptop not recognizing USB connection from HC20


I'm not sure why the camcorder is giving you an error message... but you should know that this "Burn VCD" thing is a pretty nasty hack from Sony. 

This will only work in conjunction with the Sony "Picture Package" software.. you have to have that running and properly set up for the video transfer via USB to work. And if it does work, the quality will be horrible -- 1/4 the resolution of you DV images, and arguably worst than VHS tape.

For a real video transfer from any mini-DV camcorder, you need a Firewire connection (Sony calls this i.Link), and a video
capture utility (Windows Movie Maker will work, that's included with most versions of Windows these days). A good video package will allow you to convert the DV footage into DVD, which maintains the quality of the DV camcorder's native format.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB


I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.
