I have a laptop with e sata port, How can I transfer vedios from my DCR HC 40 to laptop through esata port?


You can't use the eSATA port for this purpose.

The good news is that this is one of the few Sony mini-DV cameras that can transfer video through the USB port. Most such cameras have to use Firewire (what Sony call i.Link) for this.

There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading video to computer at THIS LINK

You will need to select Windows or Macintosh as the operating system, then Mini-DV as the camera type, then select the type of connection. As you will see, the USB option warns that it won't work with many cameras, and you are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire), however, the DCR-HC40 is on Sony's list of cameras that WILL transfer via USB.

Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7


win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)
