Firewire cards are cheap. Sending it out through the AV cord will convert to analog and then the computer would have to convert it back to digital. And you still need hardware the hardware to input the AV signal to your computer. Just buy a Firewire card and life will be easier.

You need and AV capture card to do that if you dont have a firewire port.

Use the supplied AV cable that came with the camcorder, connect the audio (left/white, right/red and yellow/video) to the capture card AV inputs and start capturing. You can make the setting on the capture card, whether it should be captured in DVD or VCD format

Can I hook up to the DW 100 Canon burner with my ZR200 to burn mini tapes on DVD?


No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.) USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)

I have a jvc gr-d33 and am trying to transfer mini dv to dvd through my laptop toshiba satellite l355. on my jvc i have the 4 pin dv and know it has to transfer through firewire but on my toshiba i dont...


I'm afraid that there is chatter on the forums that these Firewire to USB convertors don't work properly with video cameras. That doesn't mean you can't try it, of course.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you have a Windows desktop PC, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card. No help on a laptop unfortunately.

How to convert mini DV to DVD via Computor


You should have a computer with either USB or firewire (also known as ilink or 1394) port and a cable to connect your camcorder to this port on computer. Using firewire would be better as you would not get good quality with USB (may be OK for VCD, but definitely not good for DVD). If you have Sony DCR-HC42 model, then place it on its stand and use the suitable port on its stand to connect to the computer via the cable. If it is some other camera, then see its manual to locate the port. Your camera should necessarily have one of these ports for conversion to DVD via computer. The computer should also have a DVD writer, apart from firewire port (or at least USB2 port for the poor quality).

Now, if you use Windows operating system and have this model of Sony, go to Sony's site and download the DVD making software from there. Connect your camcorder to computer and use this software for converting to DVD. The software is user friendly and you would be able to use it without problem. Do not use the software on CD that came with the camcorder as that can make only VCDs.

If you use linux, you can use dvgrab or kino software to capture the video on harddisk in raw (DV) or avi format. Afterwards, use mencoder or such software to convert and burn to DVD format.

I HAVE JVC GR-DX307 AS - how to save the video on my laptop or how to save it on dvd


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To save the video on a computer, a firewire connections must first be established from the JVC GR-DX307 AS to the appropriate firewire port of the laptop (assuming it has one or through a PCMCIA firewire adapter card if required). In the camera, the FireWire/DV port is located beneath the mode dial on the left side of the JVC GR-DX307’s body. To access the FireWire/DV port, the LCD monitor must be first opened.

Soon as that connection is established, you can use Windows Import Video (Vista) to capture / download the videos.

Alternately, the A / V port of the camera maybe used to connect to a DVD Recorder for direct, realtime copying & burning. For the disc to be playable in another machine, it must be finalized.

Good luck and thank yu for using FixYa.

I need a USB cable 4-pin Mini I-Link


Check your computer user’s manual, if your computer doesn’t have a Firewire port, you need to buy an IEEE1394 card to install in your computer and a firewire cable to connect your Mini DV. Check with your local computer store

Downloading images


Make sure you have a DV cable also know as a firewire cable. You will need some software to capture the video from your camera to your hard drive. Pinnacle Studio is an inexpensive system for capturing, editing, and producting videos to DVD.

Make sure you have a firewire port in the back of your computer.

Transferring from DV tape to DVD


Are you sure you aren't looking at a MiniFirewire connection? It looks similar to MiniUSB.

Normal size Firewire has 6 pins, mini Firewire has 4 pins. At first glance you may think it is MiniUSB, but MiniFirewire has a bump in the connector. It looks like this:

You'll just need to get a Firewire cable with the appropriate ends on it. Warning- MiniFirewire doesn't stay in well, so place the camcorder where it won't get bumped while transfering video.

Laptop not recognizing USB connection from HC20


I'm not sure why the camcorder is giving you an error message... but you should know that this "Burn VCD" thing is a pretty nasty hack from Sony. 

This will only work in conjunction with the Sony "Picture Package" software.. you have to have that running and properly set up for the video transfer via USB to work. And if it does work, the quality will be horrible -- 1/4 the resolution of you DV images, and arguably worst than VHS tape.

For a real video transfer from any mini-DV camcorder, you need a Firewire connection (Sony calls this i.Link), and a video
capture utility (Windows Movie Maker will work, that's included with most versions of Windows these days). A good video package will allow you to convert the DV footage into DVD, which maintains the quality of the DV camcorder's native format.

How to transfer mini dv tape to dvd or vcd


you should have a few choices with this model: usb, firewire, composite a/v..

this link will take you to canon's download page for your camera,

the dvmessenger app should let you view your camera on the comp, use it for videoconferencing, and view it online, as well as remotely control it, although it may not let you transfer much.

your camera should have come with an installation cd that included digital video software. if it did not, you will have to contact canon for a replacement cd.

i would recommend downloading the product manual from the above site and checking page 134

in addition you can use the memory card to transfer files via a memory card reader on the pc, these can be picked up inexpensively at most camera and computer stores. your camera however should be fine if you are using windows xp and the usb cable for your camera.

hope this helps,
trin
