Hi DI PRO - We have the Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 camcorder and would like to transfer the recordings to our laptops. You indicated in a previous post that all camcorders have a 4 pin firewire connector, but our does not appear to have one. I'm guessing b/c of the age (i.e. was purchased in 2001/2002). Do they make an audio video (i.e. the standard 3 prong plug-in that has the red, white, and yellow cable) to 4 pin converters?

Re: Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37
Older 8mm cam's did not have a dv or firewire port-purchase a device from pinnacle-avail at best buy to convert your 3 wire a/v connects to usb-called Dazzle-and that will allow you to stream to usb port-the cheap oneabout 50-60 dollars has straight copy software- next one up includes editing software-good luck

Yes It Is Possible.
1. Cable options you can use S-video or RCA.
2. VHS payer that has a recording option. Make sure that it supports the Sony Handycam 8mm.
3. The procedure on how to transfer the 8mm to VHS is the same as how you view your video on the TV.
4. S-video or RCA should be connected on the Handycam and the other end is on the TV.
5. You can follow the instruction on page 27 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37)
6. You can also follow page 52 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 )
it is whats called moisture condensation. this happens when the camera goes from a cold to a hot environment very quickly, and vice versa. Simply leave the camera standing with the tape door open for about an hour, and then try again. If this does not fix it, then try cleaning the video heads, and make sure the camera is not in a humid environment, as this will also cause this to happen.
there is an eror code displayed on the upper corner of tle lcd. that code will tell what is the problem with the unit.pls post the code for more info. anyway this needs the intervention of somebody who has some experience with camcorder repairs.
