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

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

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.

Drivers Handycam DCR TRV22e


The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available for Windows Vista OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows Vista Operating System.



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.

  2. i.LINK Cable.
  3. clip_image001.jpg

    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.

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.

How can I get Windows 7 Movie Maker to recognise input from my Sony DCR TRV18E Handycam?


On page 230 of the user manual, it describes how to transfer movies from the camera to a computer using an i.Link (IEEE 1394) cable. You will need the 4 pin i.Link cable and an IEEE 1394 connector on your computer in order to do this. You cannot use the USB cable to transfer the video from this camcorder -- you can only transfer still images using the USB cable.
You will have to buy this i.Link cable and (if you don't have a IEEE 1394 port on your computer) a IEEE 1394 adapter card for you desktop computer. If your laptop computer doesn't have a IEEE 1394 adapter, then you're pretty much out of luck.
Once you have the i.Link and 1394 issues resolved, then Movie Maker should then recognize the camera.

I cannot transfer video from my Sharp VL-NZ50 to my PC


I had the same problem with the VL-NZ50. It wasn't the camera, it was the IEEE 1394 interface on the laptop(s) -
I tried two different ones, one XP, the other W7 64; both were HPs with on-board (OHCI compliant) TI
IEEE-1394 chipsets.

Then I tried a Gateway desktop (Vista) with an on-board Ricoh
IEEE 1394 interface: the VL-NZ50 was recongnized instantly, controlled by the PC and transferring video flawlessly.

If you want it to work with your laptop , try an Adaptec PCMCIA card (I've heard they work with this camera), they can be had for under $10.

Hi a firewire input is different from an 1394 port. For the laptop you can buy an firewire interface.

Can I use Firewire to transfer video?


Your computer must be equipped with an IEEE 1394 (Firewire) interface and video capture software. Provided you have both of these, follow the directions below. To connect your digital camcorder to your computer using IEEE1394, follow these steps: 1. Connect the IEEE 1394 interface on your camcorder to the IEEE 1394 interface on your computer. 2. Turn on your computer. 3. Turn on your camcorder. 4. Start the video capture software on the computer. Image capture should begin provided the computer hardware and software are configured correctly. If image capture does not begin, you must consult the computer or capture card manufacturer for assistance. Note: If you don't have an IEEE 1394 interface on your computer, you can buy an IEEE 1394 pci card at your local computer store that will work with most current computers.
