Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
From reviewing other posts and from the comments of jcrobso (and his web site) and kiddpeat, I assume I can't record from analog tapes in my Sony DCR-TRV460 directly to DVD without buying a firewire card and a firewire cable. I bought the camera for this very reason and my DVD burner is on my laptop (Win XP Pro). Being a novice at this, I don't think I can install a firewire card in a laptop, right? My desktop PC (Win 98 SE) only has a CD burner and no firewire card. I have Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 and Sonic RecordNow! on my laptop (which I also purchased to create DVD's from my analog home movies), but neither of them recognize my camera when I have it plugged in using the small USB outlet (marked DV) on my camera and the regular USB outlet on my laptop and the camera is currently playing in Play/Edit mode. I have even tried selecting the A/V->DV mode in the camera menu to no avail. There is another outlet on my camera marked A/V that a guy at Office Depot told me was the firewire outlet. But again, I don't have the firewire input spot on my laptop. Any suggestions?

That is an enclosure for an internal hard drive. You use that to make the internal drive- external. You need a firewire card adapter. Check circuit city or best buy. Do a search for "firewire card for laptop" You should be able to figure it out.

You're going to have to use firewire.
