If u have sony handycam then u got data cable for transferring data.
Use it for that u donot need any type of drivers for using that.
Otherwise use memory card reader if it is.

SOURCE: GSV 15 issue, PC is not able to recognize the DV port, unable to transfer video to PC

I had this happen to one of my Panasonic cameras, fortunately i had another camera i used for the capture process.

BUT get a magnifying glass and look at the camera firewire socket. Most firewire connect problems comes from a
"bent pin" in that socket. Otherwise it is off to the repair guy I am afraid.

SOURCE: how can i transfer videos from DCR-TRV 460E TOCOMPUTER

It is very simple. Install a Firewire (IEEE1394) card in PCI slot (if you don't have any video capture card) and connect DCR460E camcorder to PC through iLink cable. You need a video editing software like Ulead Video studio, Pinnacle studio or any other to be installed in your PC. Then go to capture mode of that programme and capture transfer video to PC hard disk. Windows movie maker is also do the same. For editing and better special effects you should use hihger versions of ulead or pinnacle. Thank you.

I have a laptop with e sata port, How can I transfer vedios from my DCR HC 40 to laptop through esata port?


You can't use the eSATA port for this purpose.

The good news is that this is one of the few Sony mini-DV cameras that can transfer video through the USB port. Most such cameras have to use Firewire (what Sony call i.Link) for this.

There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading video to computer at THIS LINK

You will need to select Windows or Macintosh as the operating system, then Mini-DV as the camera type, then select the type of connection. As you will see, the USB option warns that it won't work with many cameras, and you are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire), however, the DCR-HC40 is on Sony's list of cameras that WILL transfer via USB.

I have a sony handycam dcr-hc19e. I am trying to transfer to my laptop which only has a usb connector and i have updated software still wont work - any ideas?


If you computer has Windows Vista or Windows 7 installed, then streaming over USB is not supported on those operating systems.
It is only supported on Windows XP.
At any rate, the quality of the video when streamed over USB is of considerably lower quality when compared to the video when transferred of IEEE 1394 connection.
If you don't have Windows XP, you'll have to find a computer with an IEEE 1394 connector and buy a Sony DV to IEEE 1394 cable. The DV port on the camera is right next to the USB port. Consult your local Sony retailer to find the proper cable for your camera.

I need drivers for DCR TRV19. I have Vista on my laptop. thx


If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

ThisCamcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA OperatingSystem. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. Thei.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is ablack D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be usedwill depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorderwill have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pini.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

You need "Picture Package" software supplied with Sony camera to transfer video files in to PC. If you have software CD, please install it and connect your camrea with USB port.
If you dont have CD, check following Sony official weblink to download USB Driver, though it will not give you proper control on file transfer procedure yet it do help you to connect camera with PC.
