Question about Sony DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

I have a Sony DSR-PDX10 DV Camcorder. I am trying to get video off of it onto my laptop, which does not have a Firewire port. I purchased a USB to 4-pin Firewire converter, but lack the necessary drivers, or something like that. I can't find a USB driver for it anywhere.

SOURCE: Connecting Sony Handycam DCR-HC14E to iMac

There is a great manual here:
http://www.sony.co.uk/support/ShowExternalPage.action?product=DCR-HC14E&supportProductModelName=DCR-HC14E&linkType=manual&isRegistered=false&site=odw_en_GB&pageType=manualPopup&sectiontype=Support&externalUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpdf.crse.com%2Fmanuals%2F3089850112.pdf&externalLinkType=manual
And in short the I.link is a 1394 port or firewire port
You should be good to go

Unfortunately, it's not exactly a trivial process. The basic steps are as follows:

1) connect the camcorder to the computer
2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer
3) optionally, edit the video file
4) upload the file from the computer to youtube.com

1) the camcorder has 4-pin 1394 (also called firewire or i-link) jack, and the computer (if equipped) either has 6-pin 1394 jack or 4-pin 1394 jack (on some notebooks). if your computer doesn't have a 1394 jack, you need to buy a 1394 adapter (eg. pricegrabber.com)

2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer hard drive using editing software or a software utility designed for doing just that. this software may come with the camcorder or the 1394 adapter.

3) optionally, use editing software to take an excerpt from the file, rearrange parts of the video, add titles, etc., and output a new file

4) upload the file to youtube.com. there are some guides on their website as well (eg. youtube.com)

I hope that helps.

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the Windows 7 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.You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.The Firewire to USB cable won't work with your camcorder,you will always end up with this error.
Click the link below for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.
Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.
Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .

USB Driver for dsr pdx10 for mac


You do not need drivers to get the footage from tape to a Mac. You do require a firewire cable and use iMovie or Final Cut to capture.

I can't see any image of my tapes on the Sony DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder.


Try playing one of the tapes on another Sony DV/DVCAM device and make sure the tape is OK. Also, try running a cleaning tape through the camera for 8-14 seconds (no longer!) on playback. If this does not remedy the problem, then your camera needs repair.

I'm trying to capture video from my sony dvcam dsr-pd170 onto my laptop but can't a wire that will hook up the two devices together. What type of cable am I looking for?


Hi, you have a choice of USB (If you are on Win XP or older Windows) or Firewire cable if new Vista or Win 7 okay? or you can use the standard Red/Blue/Yellow connector cables, 3 in camera, 3 to the PC, mostly these sockets will be on rear of PC close to Speaker socket.
Take care,

Firewire is not working from the camera


Firewire port consists of physical socket and a pc board. Usally the when need to repair, technician replaces the whole assembly. So take it to your trusted repair shop and replace it. Since it requires some disassembly, it will be under a standard repair catagory. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Bad DV Out Port


There are settings like on pg 211 of your manual you might have to switch from analog out to DV out. I bet thats it. There are other options around pg 221 for USB output settings but I didn't see any conflict but it doesn't mean there won't be some.
Good Luck. Leave a comment if you need more info . Just in case here's where to get a copy of the manual: http://www.mannlib.cornell.edu/equipmentandrooms/upload/DSR-PDX10.pdf
