Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.
Hi, I dubbed secondary sound track on minidivi which had movie along with original (primary) sound.
When I transfer the movie using USB on my PC and play back, I can hear both primary and secondary (dubbed) audios .
but When I do the same transfer using Firewire (IEEE-1394), i can't hear secondary dubbded sound in the playback.
I am using sony TRV-33 camcorder.
USB is using USB sound card and firewire should be using IEEE-1394 sound card (I guess !!)
Is it something wrong with firewire cable or something else ?

Audio Dubbing on DV:
Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output.
Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings.
Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.

Why do you need that **** software from Sony?If you have a firewire port on your computer and a firewire cable you can transfer your footage with Windows Movie Maker.In Movie Maker you can choose the DV-AVI option to preserve the full quality of your footage.Later you can use the DV-AVI in Virtual Dub/After Effects/Premiere for editing or encoding.
I have converted home videos on my PC this way. I have a Sony camcorder whose output connects to my firewire card in the PC. I also use windows Movie maker. While it is recording, I don't hear the audio. After saving the file and playing it back, I hear the audio, along with seeing the movie. Windows movie maker allows me to stop, start, and record the movie. It has complete control over the Sony camcorder by using the firewire port on the PC.
In audio 12 bit selection, you can add audio (audio dub) without deleting or damaging original sound track. Like narrating some introduction in your voice and keeping background / original sound as well. 4 bit difference is used to add additional sound in same sound file without deleting previous audio data. 16 bit audio selection will not give you this option and audio-dub option will be disabled. If you want to add more audio, you have to over write complete sound track in movie file. I'm not sure that I conveyed it to you correctly. Need further info, let me know.
Is this only on some movies? Look to see in your options is you have and decoder settings. What audio format do you prefer, DTS or Dolby? Sometimes you may get a unit in which the decoder is faulty. If you have warranty options, first use those to get you a new unit.
