Question about Sony DCR-HC19E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Transferring from a Sony DCR-HC19E to an Advent Laptop with Vista (no Firewire port)

Hi

I can't hook my camcorder up to my lap-top. Apparently I need new driver software as I am running Vista, but the Sony website says that I need to connect up with Firewire also.

My laptop doesn't have a Firewire connection. It's an Advent 7211. Are there any ways around my problem?

    Thanks, but that doesn't work. The Picture Package software update required for Vista doesn't allow streaming via USB. Would be great if it did, but I need another solution.

I hope you have Sony Picture Package Sofware CD in hand came with Camera. Pls install it and go to Sony Official website and download driver updates for Vista. Connect your handycam with your lap top and enjoy.

    1. Go to Camera Menu and enable USB Streaming function. Hope it would allow to transfer data in PC.

    2. Camera has iLink connection as well requires iLink port in PC / Lap Top too to transfer data in PC. Details are available on above said Sony Website.

How do I download my DV tapes from DCR - HC19E sony to my Dell window 7 os lap-top please. I've lost the original software.


Hi, I'd suggest getting a Pinnacle Dazzle, it comes with a part that the connection's from the camcorder plug into then it plugs into your USB and it comes with software for transferring the video as well as doing basic editing. You can have a look at it here: http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/Products/Consumer+Products/Dazzle/Dazzle+Video+Archiving/Dazzle+Video+Creator+Plus+HD.htm

When i connect my camcorder through the firewire


Hello my friend, yes had same problem, I had hair when it happened to me, now bald hi hi, but you need to go into the PC Control panal, go to System settings, look down a long list eg Sound, Drives, Mouse, etc look at Cameras, if your camera is in the list highlight it, and delete driver with clicking you mouse on it, come out of control panal on PC, REMOVE ALL camera cables from PC, turn off your PC in normal way.
Now when your PC is OFF plug your fire-wire cable in camera, then to the PC, turn camera on, and THEN turn your PC on (MUST BE LAST THING YOU DO) then once your PC is fully rebooted and you are in windows your camera is seen all done.
Take care, all the best.
