My computer does not recognize the camcorder on the USB Drive Port.

I have installed two different programs, Nero & Sony's. I cannot get my PC to recognize my camcorder. I don't have a 1395 Port but the software states that I can import movies through my USB Port. Help...

Window 7 problem cannot detect my video cam


After connecting the Camcorder to the Computer with the Firewire/i.LINK, turn ON the Camcorder.
Keep the Camcorder in Playback mode.
Start the Moviemaker Software which is pre-installed in the Windows.
Check whether the Camcorder is recognized as the Video Device.

If the Camcorder is not recognized, then check whether it works with other Computer or not.
You may also try using a different i.LINK cable that is compatible with the Sony Camcorder.
Sony Camcorder have 4 pin DV Interface and the Computers may have either 4pin or 6-pin i.LINK/Firewire port. So make sure that you are using the correct cable.

Downloading video from Sony DCR-HC45 Camcorder using a 1394 Firewire. My PC is not recognising the connection. It did work at one stage without any problem but not any longer. What must I do


You have to go on Device Manager and delete the imaging device. Then uninstall old drivers and software used with the camcorder. With 32 bit OS (Win XP and Win 7 32 bit) install Nero 8 Essentails or any other video capture software. Do not plug in external device during install. After installation is complete, reboot your PC. Now you can connect your camcorder with firewire port and then open the nero software. Under video capture, it will detect your sony camcorder.

Windows Vista will not let Windows Movie Maker import/edit videos


I would look for a more recent driver on the Samsung support website specifically for  Vista; it apparently does not have the right (or any) driver to permit it to work with your DVD camcorder. I don't think any of your hardware, computer or camcorder is dysfunctional, Windows just has to know how to communicate with it.
What you might try first is to have the camcorder connected (USB I assume) and reboot your PC. If Win can see it at all, you should get a screen message that it has found new hardware.  If it has some basic driver on hand, the message might state 'installing software for your device.'

i will give you a step by step on your camcorder.

  • connect your camcorder using your USB cable to your computer and be sure it is ON

  • Install Ulead Power Producer or any editing movie that you have like Windows movie maker, nero movier maker etc.. i prefer to use Ulead because its so easy to use
  • after uploading and editing your videos using ULEAD save it on any various types of videos that you like. you should see it after you want to save it.
  • burn your videos on NERO software
Hope you understand my procedures. Good Luck!

Software for JVC Digital Camcorder


There website isn't much help for software. I found this at the bottome of their of support page:

http://www.jvc-victor.co.jp/english/download/vc31_vp20/index.html

Typically use should only need a USB cable and a video capture program such as Pinnacle Studio to get it to work. Once Studio is installed you plug your camera into the USB port and turn it on. Studio will recognize it.

I AHVE SONY HANDYCAM DCR-HC28E BUT ITS NOT CONNECTING WITH COMPUTER WHEN EVER I CANNECT MY CAM WIH pc IT SHOW A BUBBLE MSG UNKNOWN DEVICE AND YOUR CAM DOES RECOGNIZED PLEASE HELP ME OUT.


This solution is based on my assumption that you're using the iLink (Firewire/IEEE1394) port on the camcorder, and that you're using a PC running Windows 2000/XP/Vista.

Make sure the camcorder is plugged into its AC adapter, as sometimes people report problems when using battery power. If you're using a laptop PC, plug it into the mains also. Shutdown your PC completely (click the Start button, then choose Shutdown, then select "shutdown my pc" or "turn off") and turn it on again; then plug in the camcorder.

If that doesn't work, try a different port, if you have more than one. Other things to try are a different PC (might be a problem with your port, drivers, or the Windows installation) or a different cable (might be a broken wire inside the cable).

If you get the same problem when using a different PCs and different cables, you should take your camcorder in for servicing.

Camcorder connection to pc


Firstly ensure you are connecting it into the same USB port as last time, as it will look for drivers if in a different port. Also worth checking to see if another USB device is detected in the same USB port(eg usb pen,dongle, game controller etc),if so the port is ok. If still nothing remove camera and lead. If you still have the software and driver cd that you got with the camera, dig it out. If you have the installation cd, look in Start>Control Panel>Add & Remove Programmes and look for the Sony driver or software in the list. Click on the line and then on right hand side click remove. Insert the cd and re-install drivers or let it autorun, and only connect your camera when instructed to do so; or, after the installation has finished. Hope this works, as the connection between camera and pc is either a lead fault or camera input fault if none of above works.
