You would get a USB cable (typically comes with your camcorder) or a firewire cable (Sony calls i.Link) but you need a lot more than a cable. Software on the computer is most important. Sony usually gives you a CD with the software you need to load videos from camcorder to computer. There are other solutions, particularly if you only want to create a DVD of your videos.

Hi there, i have a Panasonic NV-GS15 . just need to know if it is at all possible to copy from the Camcorder Video tape to your pc. So that a DVD can be made?

You will need a firewire cable (IEEE 1934) to connect your camcorder to you pc. Before you purchase the cable you should first check you pc for the proper connections. The firewire IEEE 1934 is available in 4 pin or six pin connection types (not the typical usb). If your computer is not compatible, you should be able to pick up a fire wire adapter at your local electronics retailer (I purchased a pc card style for my laptop, recently, from Best Buy for approx. $10.00) You will also need software to edit the video (many are available for free download, online)

My pc isn't recognizing my tv through my hdmi cable i used to but now it dosnt so its trying to run it with regular pnp monitor drivers instead of the tv's drivers

The problem may be with the video card driver software on your computer. If your video card came with your computer, visit the computer manufacturer's support website, type in your model number, and download and install the listed video drivers. If you purchased your video card separately or after you bought your computer, or if it is a custom build, go instead to the website of your video card's manufacturer and download and install the drivers specific to that card.

How can i translate a video from de camera to pc

You will need to purchase an interface cable to connect the camera to your PC. If you are running Vist or Windows 7, once you connect the cable, it will recognize the camera and tell you how to download the video as an .AVI file. You probably will need a FIREWIRE cable. Good Luck....

What do i need to purchase to connect my sony handycam cdd-trv68

You need to download your movies with a Firewire cable, you must make sure your PC or Laptop has this socket, the marking near this socket on your computer has a 3 bladed windmill picture.
Your cable will set you back about £10 at most good camera shops.

Inability to download video from Panasonic VDR-D150 camera


On this camera you need to go into the menu and select USB function and tell it to go into PC mode.

Otherwise the USB is in printer mode and the PC will not recognise it.

I am not sure if you got a manual with your camera so I have included this link for your convenience where you can download it.

The manual is not very clear on this instruction but see page 94 for a reference to what I mean.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.
