Capturing D-VHS thru firewire (1394)

I would like to know if anyone out there is capturing D-VHS thru the firewire port of their computer? Is there a software package that would allow video capture this way? Windows recognizes the device but fails to locate a driver for it. (JVC..30000) Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Capturing D-VHS thru firewire (1394)

Here's what you will end up doing. ANALOG CAPTURE. I could help if we knew more about the HOST PC/MACINTOSH machine. It's only my opinion that to get a FIREWIRE ANALOG VIDEO DIGITIZER is not a great idea.

Hello, trying to connect Panasonic NV-GS150 to Mac in order to download the movie I made. Have a firewire cable inserted into the computer and plugged in on the DV outlet. But when switched to playback...


Please follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection (IEEE 1394).


IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.

NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.

  1. Connect an i.LINK cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.


i.LINK Cable.

i.LINK port.




  1. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer.

NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.

  1. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  2. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  5. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  6. Begin importing the video with the capture software.
It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.

Your how can i load my footage to pc from sony DCR-HC52E via firewire


Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.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.

NOTE: You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.


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

Camcorder as above


Your dv camcorder needs a firewire connection (ieee 1394) in order to download video to your PC if your computer (PC) did not come with a firewire port, so you will have to buy one and install it, & if your camcorder did not come with a firewire cord so you have to purchase a cord too.

Your camcorder has only a USB cord and that is used for downloading stills from your camcorder, when capturing video just make sure your camera is in playback mode.

Hope this initial info helps you solve your problem...

Kindly rate my solution here (and also the one out there) if this one solve your problem.. Thank you

Problem in video capturing through firewire


Hi Sreeki,
You may have solved this problem already but I had the same problem some time ago, so the advice will be a little vague.

From memory the issue is something to do with corruption of a directx file so you could just try re-loading directx.

But the way I found a solution was to try and capture video using windows movie maker and you will find the video capture also fails using this software. However, windows returns an error message (which I cannot remember), and I did a search on Google or something for this error message and eventually found the solution.

It was related to directx and there was a small file that had to be run to repair it.

Hope this helps and I will continue searching for the problem I am now having with my camera not accepting a tape and returning the error message relating moisture......

Connecting to Computer


Look at the camera as though you were peering into the lens. On the front face of the camera in the lower left hand corner, there is a rubber plug labeled DV In/Out. Under that plug is an IEEE-1394 port (firewire). You will need to purchase a firewire cable and have a computer with the same port (some are four pin and others are six pin...I believe the four pin is more common, but the cable will need to match). When you plug the camera to the computer, it should be detected automatically similar to a USB device. You will also need to have the software for capturing and editing the video. My HP laptop came with a fairly decent program called Cyberlink Powerdirector. You can check out the videos I've done on youtube with my DCR-TRV103 at www.youtube.com/user/stu11926.

If your camcorder is a digital version, you should have a 1394 iLink Firewire cable which is needed to connect your camcorder to your PC. A Firewire is a higher transfer rate connection than USB 1.0 (but slower than USB 2.0), and it is intended for applications such as video editing. Some camers, e.g., Sony, require a Firewire connection to exploit certain features of a digital camcorder and editing software, and it's best to use one. If you do need the Firewire but your computer doesn't have a 1394 Firewire port built in, you can purchase a PCI card version for around $50 and install it separately very easily.

And if your computer doesn't have the 1394 port, but does have a USB 2.0 connector (all newer computers now do), then you can connect your camcorder to your PC via the USB 2.0 (note: NOT a USB 1.0!) to begin capturing video. If you're still having trouble, make sure you go to your camcorder manufacturer's website to download any relevant drivers then retry your connection. If your computer Finds New Hardware sucessfully, you're in. Good luck!
