Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC24E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Usually what you would do is buy a IEEE-1394 interface card and install it in your PC in an available slot on the motherboard. You can buy these for less than $20 and with a little tech knowledge about PCs many people can install the card themselves. The IEEE-1394 is called i.Link by Sony. If you are running Windows XP, or Vista, the drivers are already installed. Reboot PC and the new card should be recognized. Use the 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable to connect camcorder to PC. You will need software to capture your video which should have been supplied by Sony with your camera. For Windows 7, you need to install LIVE Photo Gallery. Your camcorder was setup to work with Windows XP so an alternative may be to just find a friend with an older PC with a firewire card already installed running Windows XP. I just did this very same thing on my PC and it worked. Got the firewire card from Amazon.com for $3.95 VIA brand from Taiwan. I used Windows Movie Maker to capture video. Sony also sells a stand-alone DVD recorder which connects to a camcorder and requires no computer to create DVDs of your video.
