Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Sony Handycam DCRHC20... From tape to computer?

Hello everyone, I'm kinda new to the wonderful world of camcorders, and I bought a Sony Handycam DCRHC20 to start out. But I already have a problem, heh. You have to understand that I'm a total newbie to this :D. So here's my problem and question : With the camcorder, I got a CD called Picture Package, but with that prog, I can only burn my videos to a CD, or transfer them to my computer... but already edited! It automaticly adds a music, edits my videos, cut them... That's not really what I wanted... I'd like to transfer them directly to my comp, and edit them with a third-party prog. So, I'd like to transfer my intact videos to my computer.. I hope it is possible? I've heard some things about a fireware card, but like I said, I'm a total newbie and I don't want to burn money on this if it can't help me ;). Thanks for your answers.

You need a firewire interface, Firewire on the computer, and a video editing program. Windows XP has the moviemaker, which will do. A more elegant way is a Mac which will have everything you need included.

My Sony HandyCam DCR-DVD105 suddenly started shutting itself off after about 20 seconds. I have recharged the battery, and that has not helped the issue. the camera also will not open its disc access, even...


No problems, at last Sony have listened to camera users and heard that the models that use DVD are no good, so Sony along with most others have dropped the DVD models, they simply never were reliable enough.
Grab a Digital 8 tape camera from Sony if you feel you prefer no hasstle in movie making, most already have.
