SONY CAMCORDER DCR-TRV19 DOESN'T WORK ON WINDOWS


The Windows 7 Operating System is not compatible with the USB Streaming feature of the Camcorder.

You can transfer the videos to the Windows 7 Computer using an i.LINK (Firewire) Cable.

You can use the Windows Movie Maker Software to transfer the videos from the Camcorder.

Please follow the steps mentioned in the below link to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer

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.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

NOTE:As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is notrequired to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to theComputer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony totransfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using thei.LINK/Firewire interface.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Transfer video to computer


I would like to know more about this USB adapter cable you bought. The camera has a IEEE-1394 (commonly refered to as Firewire or i-Link) connection that is inherently incompatible with USB. I don't see how one cable could do the trick unless it had some kind of conversion hardware built into it. Does it have a little box on the cable or is it just a straight cable?
CNet.com says that your laptop has a four pin Firewire port on it. I would go to BestBuy and tell them you need a Firewire cable with a four pin connector on both ends. If they give you a weird look tell them that is the small Firewire plug, not the big one. If they are still confused, get somebody else to help you. Then use that cable to plug your camera into your computer. Windows should recogonize it automatically. If it doesn't there may be a problem with you camera.

DCR-TRV19 compatible with an apple computer?


Hi heather719,

Unfortunately, the DCR-TRV19 is only compatible with windows - see the list of compatible versions at this address:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=DCRTRV19

The only compatibility it has with Macs (and it doesn't always work) is to view still images via USB cable. In order to do this, you must manually install the required drivers from the software CD on your Mac. See the user's manual for instructions on how to do this:

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRTRV19.pdf

The reason the video playback is not compatible with Macs is that you have to use an iLink cable, which is Sony's version of an IEEE 1394 ("Firewire") cable, and the iLink is only compatible with PCs (since that's what Sony makes).

If you want to get content from the tape in your camera onto a Mac, you must either:
1) Load it onto a PC, save it to a portable memory device, and transfer it, or...
2) Connect a MiniDV deck to your Mac, take the tape out of your camera, and put in the deck (like a VCR).

I'm sorry I can't give you better news - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

Mini dv to apc


I'm working out the same problem! From the looks of things, it can be done with the i.LINK cable (which is optional, of course). I've got Vista on my new computer, which is incompatible with Sony's USB driver anyway, but it looks like I can transfer video successfully using an i.LINK cable and Microsoft® Windows Movie Maker (came with Vista). I just need to find the cable I need, as it's "optional" and didn't come with my camcorder. BTW, here's where I found my info: http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

Pcmcia card


i think you can connect the 2 using a firewire that can be connected thru the usb.

the camcorder has this with it. its a small cable which you connect from the cam into the laptops usb.

pcmcia port is usually for portable nics and extender slots. please do check with the firewire fisrt as this is the main route for transfering data from cam to laptop.
