Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
I edited wmy video on the tape within the camcorder and put the edited video on the memory stick in hopes of transfering the edited video to the computer. It does not recognize the camcorder unless connected by the USB cable. The ilink cable alone does not work to transfer the video. The problem is unless I use the ilink, the quality is terrible. The only way to transfer the video to the nero software I am using is to transfer the video unedited, but I really want to edit it prior to transferring it to the computer. Any Ideas? I tried to capture the video by recording the video on the memory stick, but the bright blue screen around the video when in memory playback mode shows up on the captured video. Why can't you get a full screen (no blue)when playing back video on the camcorder memory stick. Until I figure out the video editing within Nero, which seems impossible, I have to edit within the camcorder. I can use some suggestions. Thank you!!!!!
Hello liag, Deactivate the USB streaming function on your camcorder by setting the USB ON/OFF switch (page 65 in your manual) on the Handycam Station to OFF. This will allow you to retrieve info off your memory stick. If you need the manual, it is here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DCRPC55&LOC=3 click on the download for "Operating Guide" Please let us know if you need any additional information.

SOURCE: Video transfer
If you're using a Windows Vista Operating System it'snot possible to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB connection. The videos from the tape camcorders cannot be transferred to Windows Vista Operating System as there is no USB Streaming ooption available on the Windows Vista Operating System. The Camcorder uses the USB Streaming function to transfer the videos to the Computer. You may wish to purchase a i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer in order to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.
There is an update for driver on the Sony website to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB cable.
You may also try installing the driver update for the Camcorder. The i.LINK cable gives a better video transfer qulaity than the USB transfer. The i.LINK cable used to connect the Camcorder to the computer depends on the number of pins available on the i.LINK/FIREWIRE port on the Computer. The i.LINK port on the Computer is a D shaped port which is labelled as i, DV, IEEE1394 and Firewire.

To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:-
1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability)
2. Appropriate software/application.
If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed.
Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.
