How can I download video from a sony mini_dv camcorder to my laptop which does not have a firewire connection?


IEEE 1394 or firewire is the only reliable method.
If you just want to get the footage to a computer for playback only then:
There are USB converters on the market.
Most covert the files to non-editable codecs so if you wish to edit the footage:
You could transcode those file back to DV but this is a bad workflow.Having a computer with a firewire port and appropriate editing software is your best option.

How to edit picture?


I you refer to video;
First thing is to establish what type of footage the camera shoots.
Then capture the footage to a computer with an editing application that is compatible with the footage.

Without specific information it's only a guesswork.

How can I transfer my 8mm tape to my computer? I need to have the film on a flash drive or dvd.


Assuming that you want to do your video work later (editing,DVD burning)in your PC.


1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on).
2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device.
3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV.
4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture.
5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode.
6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam.
7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture.
8.Start your editing work.
9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.



For beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but effective enough for home-movie work.Once your project is completed,save your movie in original .avi format for later burning to DVD,etc.



BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.

How do you record without sound



Hi there,

There does not appear to be any provision on the camcorder menu, to mute the audio.

As an alternative, I would recommend you connect the camcorder to your computer or laptop (via firewire if possible) and transfer the footage onto your computer's hard drive.

You can then use your computer's Movie Maker application to edit the footage - here you can either remove the audio track, or overlay your new audio soundtrack.

Good luck !

How Do I Edit the Film?


Look for the output jacks on your camera, hook them to your computer's audio/video input. Try accessing the recording utility on the computer then upload footage through NTSC format. You can then edit the footage. If your camera and computer utilize S-video, use them for best resolution

Transfer footage from DVD to Computer for editing


I use ISO Buster to read the AVCHD footage into my computer and then edit with Pinnacle Studio. With ISO Buster, you place the 3" AVCHD DVD into your regular DVD Rom drive on your computer and it will rip the raw files directly from the disk. You cannot transfer the movies from the DX1 to Pinnacle or any other editor using the USB cable.

I am trying to find a way to transfer my video from samsung digital cam. sc-dc164 to my computer so i can edit and make dvds. .


Make sure you have a firewire port on your computer. If not, go out and buy a firewire card. Then purchase a firewire cord. plug your camera into the firewire port using the firewire cord, boot up your video editing software (I use Adobe Premiere, personally. Final Cut Pro is the best to use if you're running a Mac), and capture your footage. Edit your footage if you'd like and all that stuff, and then export the video to your desktop. You'll then have the same quality of what you shot in one file.
