If you have firewire connector then you can do it otherwise you have to buy one and put in the pci slot.

What do I need to hookup my dcr-hc52 to my HP computer, running windows 7. My camera did not come with software to install anything on the computer. I have a cord with Dv in end and USB end on the...


Windows 7 does not support USB streaming for that camera (unfortunately). You will need to purchase an i-link (or firewire) cable to transfer video from your camcorder to you computer. NOTE: Be prepared to buy a firewire adapter for your computer (unless your PC already has a firewire input). You should be able to purchase both the cable (approx. $38.00) and the adapter (approx. $10.00) from your local "big box" electronics store.
I hope this solves your issue.. :)

I'm not able to install drivers for my sony mini DV DCR-TRV22E handycam on mac os.


Hi,

The DCR-TRV22E Camcorder can be connected to the Macintosh Computer with the i.LINK (Firewire) cable. The Software supplied with the Camcorder is not compatible with the Macintosh Computer. Instead you've to use the Firewire cable for connecting the Camcorder to the Computer. You can use the iMovie Software for transferring the videos. You do not require any drivers from Sony, to transfer the video via i.LINK.
You require to purchase either a 4 - pin to 4 - pin or a 4 - pin to 6 - pin i.LINK / Firewire cable depending on the number of pins on the i.LINK / Firewire port of your computer (since Camcorder will have only 4PIN i-LINK, while the Computer may have a 4PIN or 6 PIN i.LINK port).

Thanks for using FixYa.
We wish you a happy Christmas and NewYear!!

Recording onto a mini dv tape from Mac computer Via firewire


I have successfully recorded to a mini Dv tape from my computer however I connected my PC to the VX2100 using the RCA inputs. I have an adapter that I purchased from best buy that provides the RCA input/output. If your able to connect that make sure to...

1. Turn you VX2100 to Play/Edit mode (not camera mode)
2. Insure the program on your mac has an external output otherwise you won't be able to record.
3. See if your video editing software (if your using one) has an option for record to tape or to camera. I use Vegas Studio and it has an option for that.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

I want to watch video from my camcorder on pc. My camcorder has a 4 pin ieee firewire port. How many pins does the compaq presario sr1420nx have for its ieee firewire port? Should I use 800mps cables


You are on the right track. The best way to hook your computer to your camcorder is the firewire connection. There are 4 pins on the small connection on your cam, but on the PC the firewire connection is bigger and has six pins on that end. You should get the best cable that you have access to, because speed is everything when you are dealing with video, I would get the 800mps. Just make sure to check your connections on the PC and the Cam to make sure you get the right cable.

Cant detect camera on dv video recording transfers.


Hi, I hope the camera you are talking about is ZR200 Mini DV.
As per its specifications. It has a firewire/DV port.
Therefore, follow these steps. I assume you are using this cable. http://cdn.overstock.com/images/products/L10726964.jpg

I am not sure how you used the firewire cable before.
So, try this. Connect one end of the cable to computer and other to the camera. Switch on the camera and keep it in play/ edit mode (not in shooting mode).
When you connect the other end to the computer,  There should be a popup asking you what to do.
If there is no popup,  Open Windows Movie maker and import video from device. You should see the camera in it.
Hope it works.

Camcoder problem


The USB port on the camera is to download still pics from the Camera's SD Card to your computer. USB connector is not for video downloading.

For video downloading you have to use FireWire port. Your computer must have a FireWire port too. You will need some sort of video downloading software - like Microsoft's MovieMaker. There are some free software to download videos from mini dv camcorders to computer. It takes 1Hr to download 1Hr tape - you have to play it all to record it all. You will need video editing software to do different editing if you want. Otherwise, MovieMaker can make a good avi file. You can upload that to YouTube.

3yrs ago when I purchased this cam, I did not have FireWire port in my computer. I searched online a lot and found a way to download video using USB - it was tough, complicated. It was possible, but quality was too bad and too many dropped frames.

If you do not have firewire port, google for FireWire PCI Card, should be <$10. You have to install it inside your PC. Also search for FireWire cable ($10+/-) that will match BOTH camera and PC ports.

Thank you.

Vista and firewire 1394?


Firewire works fine under Vista, but it's quite possible your USB to Firewire bridge doesn't have proper Vista drivers. You wouldn't expect Vista to include these, they would be installed from a disc that came with your adaptor. USB to Firewire is a questionable option at best... there are often problems with it. You may be better off with a PC-Card or ExpressCard solution, if the laptop is your only computer.

Also, when the camera says "DV IN", it's expecting video from the PC to be sent to it, it's not in capture mode. Most camcorders must be in either "play" mode, or a special "link to PC" mode in order to even be recognized by Windows (any version) as a video input device.

However, until you resolve the issue of supporting your Firewire device in Vista, nothing the camcorder does will be an issue yet. You should check the documentation that came with your USB to Firewire device, the driver disc, etc. for information on Vista support.

Unable to tansfer video to computer using DV cable..


Pinnacle software will recognize the camera installed through a firewire cable once the camera is turned on. Windows movies software doesn't recognize DV cameras. You may be able to get capture to work if you go to Microsoft.com and download the Windows Media 9.0 Development Kit. I believe DV input is a capture option.

There has to be a 3rd party program installed to get it to recognize it.

Good luck on that.
