Well you need to buy the Fire Wire Card from PC World, the card pushes into the side slot and then at the back of your PC you will see the Fire Wire port you now have, you will need a standard Firewire cable and then your all set.

Panasonic IEEE 1284


Not sure what the question is. IEEE 1284 is a parallel cable interface, standard on most computers up until Windows XP for sure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_1284. This interface was substantially replaced by USB. If you have an older printer with this interface you can still connect this to a newer computer without the parallel interface by installing an interface card (into a desktop computer) or connecting via a Parallel to USB adapter.

I dnt hav usb cable for my handy cam DCR-HC52E ...


Product Summary
    4-pin to 4-pin IEEE 1394 iLink FireWire Cable dv out to laptop Connect and transfer home movie from your digital camcorder to Notebook computer.

    You will need a Firewire port on your computer, also known as a DV port or IEEE 1394, to use this cable. This is NOT a USB cable.

    This DV cable will connect your laptop (notebook)
    NOTE: for some models, becuase of no DV jack on the body, this cable connects to docking station/cradle instead of connecting directly to your camcorder.

Advice was given to me to buy firewire cable as my sony handycam DCR-TRV22E wont recognize by my mac OS X ver. 10.6.6? what type of firewire shld i buy?


I'm glad to provide the information about the required firewire cable.
All Sony Camcorders are having 4 pin firewire/i.LINK port.
You can purchase a Firewire cable depends upon the number of pins available on the firewire port on the Computer.
If you have 4 pin firewire port in the Computer, you can purchase a 4 to 4 pin Firewire cable.
If you have 6 pin Firewire port in your Computer, you can purchase 4 to 6 pin i.LINK cable.
In rare cases, it may also 4 to 9 pin.
Please refer the manual of your computer or contact apple to get the information about the number of pins available on the Computer.
You may also get back to me with the model # of the Computer so that I might be able to check the pin information.
Thanks for understanding.
If you need any further assistance, please let me know..

I cant download my DCR-TRV250 Digital 8 videos to my computer. I tryed on Win 7 and Win XP, with or without Sony drivers... But no computers recognize my cam. Also I looked for help on Sony eSupport, but...


From the Sony support page for this camera, it has the following:
  • Drivers:
    • The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
  • Not Supported:
    • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
    • The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.

See this, it answers to most of your queries:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t5921707-convert_mini_dv

The CD that came with the camcorder is not compatible with Windows 7. You have to go to Sony's site and get an update. See if the following link is useful:

http://www.sony-asia.com/support/download/415262

I think USB streaming is not supported in Windows 7, so probably iLink is the only option available to you, which anyway is better than USB in terms of less frame drops and capture of DVD quality. The camera has 4 pin ilink port. Check whether you have 6-pin port or 4-pin port or both type of ports on your computers. Laptops generally have one 4-pin port. Desktops can have more than one iLink ports and can have both 6-pin and 4-pin. 4-pin port would look exactly like the one you have on your camcorder. You can find a photo of 6-pin ports at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IEEE_1394_Firewire_PCI_Expansion_Card_Digon3.jpg

If your both the computers have at least one port with same number of pins, then you can use one cable for transferring to both.

You will need an ilink cable with 4-pin male to connect to camcorder and either 6-pin male (http://cgi.ebay.in/4-Pin-6-Pin-DV-iLink-Cable-/400180203017?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash=item5d2c994e09)or 4-pin male (http://cgi.ebay.in/4-Pin-4-Pin-Firewire-IEEE1394-DV-iLink-Cable-/400180205113?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash=item5d2c995639) to connect to the computer side.

How do I transfer recordings from tape to dvd?


If this is a Dig8 camcorder, it should have a DV jack. From this, you can use an iLink cable (firewire cable) to plug it directly into your computer. If you have a DVD burner on your computer, this should work for you.

Instructions:
  1. Connect an i.LINK (firewire) cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.
  2. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer. NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
  3. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  4. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  5. Turn on the computer. Your computer should recognize your camcorder and automatically install the needed driver.
  6. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  7. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  8. Begin importing the video with the capture software. It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.
Hope this helps you.

A sony dcr-trv 103 camcorder and I want to connect to computer


Yes, the brandnames Firewire (Apple) and iLink (Sony) are both IEEE 1394 interfaces.
Your cam should require a 4-pin to a 6-pin, both IEEE 1394. Hope this helps.

Can not find USB in the menu setting


Try you "firewire" cable. If you do not have a IEEE 1394 port on you computer add one on the PCI bus, or you will have to get some unit to convert the analog output(A/V cable-port) of the camera to digital via the USB. [Turtle Beach-Dazzle- etc] Unless your camera's OEM editing/ingest program is made to connect through USB, the camera will ship only stills via USB. The audio and video transport via "firewire"/ IEEE 1394 ports. Edit with what ever you want, but I suggest "Scenalyzer" to ingest to you computer from your camera. http://scenalyzer.com

Canon ZR800 MimiDV Camcorder


You cannot connect a DV cable to a USB port. These are two incompatible standards. DV is also called Firewire, iLink or IEEE1394. You PC must have that kind of port for you to transfer your video from the ZR800 and you will need a DV (iLink/Firewire) cable. You cannot use USB cable they will not work. Check www.MyCableMart.com if you want an example. Most new PC come with 1 or 2 iLink/Firewire/1394 port. If you PC does not have an iLink/Firewire/1394 port then you will need to install a iLink/Firewire/1394 card (see http://www.usbfirewire.com/Parts/rr-fw-byt.html) for more information.
