D770 Mini Plug to IEEE 1394 Interface

I am looking to hook up my D770 to my Sony Laptop (PCG-F450) to capture stills; I have to caputure 1,000s of product images and want to set up a good production setup. In other words, after I make the setup, I just want to have my assistant change out the subject (small items) and I want to capture the image directly on to my laptop. Thanks! Paul

Re: D770 Mini Plug to IEEE 1394 Interface

There's no IEEE 1394 in the D770 Model, but Sony released the almost identical - DKC-FP3, slightly darker coloured and _WITH_ the IEEE 1394 interface under the side flap. More info on: http://www.dpreview.com/news/9907/99071902sonyd770_2.asp

Re: D770 Mini Plug to IEEE 1394 Interface

Hi Paul, Sorry, but there is no firewire setup on the D770. There is a video output jack on the camera only. You will have to use big ATA or PCMCIA cards and plug them into the PCMCIA card slot. You can also use PCMCIA card adapters for MemoryStick, SmartMedia, and CompactFlash cards(CF). Those are your only options of media for the laptop or PC. The camera comes with a parallel port PCMCIA cardreader. It is reccommended to be used on your PC. Hope this info helps you out.

How can i download the contents of my mini tape onto the pc ?


you don't convert the files, you just downlod them via a firewire comnnection.

If you have a mini dv (cassette) camcorder....
Your dv camcorder needs a firewire connection (ieee 1394) in order to download video, your PC probably did not come with a firewire port, so you will have to buy one and install it, since most computers (except possibly brand new) don't come with a firewire port, your camcorder did not come with a firewire cord so you have to purchase a cord too. Your camcorder did come with a USB cord and that is used for downloading stills from your camcorder. Make sure your camera is in playback mode.
Open your editing program and choose the capture mode.

The fine print in your manual makes reference to firewire (ieee 1394) connection....


thanks.

Hello, I connected my DCR-HC54 (minidv) to computer using USB cable (come with camcorder). latest PMB is installed on windows 7 64-bit home premium. It gives following message: Cannot find the Handycam...


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Sony call this "i.Link". Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. According to a list on the Sony site, your particular model is not one that can use USB for video transfers to computer.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.

I have a Samsung SC-D381 Digital Video Camcorder that I would like to tansfer recorded video from to a PC. I bought the IEEE 1394 PC card with the FireWire 6/4 pin cable. I don't know what to do next. ...


You'll need a software able to capture and edit video. Your footage is on tape, right? First, you must have a firewire port on your pc, with the cam properly connected to. Then, all you have to do is make use of a program like Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, or even the Windows Movie Makes, and find the capture window/mode/whatever, which will show you a console with play-pause-stop-rew-ff-rec buttons and a little monitor, to see where on the tape you are. Once on the capture console, you'll rewind the tape to the beginning of your footage and press rec ON THE CONSOLE, not on the camera. The software should ask you for a place to save the file and that's all.

Cant download driver for mini dv camcorder mv901


The only way to get your Recorded videos from your canon MV901 is to get a cable called Firewire IEEE 1394 cable (buy it on Ebay, original cable coast 25 punds)however there is one big problem with that cable, most of computers dosent have the port for it, so first check your Pc if it has the right port for that cable before buying it!

There is another cable for Mv901 called USB, al of the Pc's have the port for it and it coast less that the Firewire IEEE 1394 cable, but again there is one issue, My pc cant find the correct driver for it and i cannot download a propper driver from anywhere... So i suggest the USb is kind of useless because you cant get a friver for it.

Im trying to import videos from my mini dv tape on my digital Video camera JVC GR-290u i plugged in a usb cord from my camera to the computer but nothing came up. when i switch from video mode to memory...


As it's a DV (Digital Video) camera you should use the IEEE 1394 Firewire socket if it has one. Then use a DV capture program.
If you dont have a Firewire port on your PC you can buy a card like this one which will connect you Camera to your PC.
