The DCRTRV27 can connect to a PC by using either a USB or firewire cable. If you want the best video use the firewire 4 to 6 pin cable. You can output the video as raw, then convert the video to any number of mpeg formats by using either Microsoft's Movie Maker 2.0, it's free, or the software that came with your camera. The video can be burned to CD, but this is not a very good choice since even the most modest video can easly exceed a gig in size.

Please help

yES, YOU CAN. yOU NEED THE cord from Sony that goes to your computer usb port or a firewire connection.There was also a cd that you got with that camcorder, but iIwould try this without using that first, it may not be necessary.
With camcorder off, atttach the cord from the camcorder to the computer. Depending on your set up, the connection may turn on your camcorder automatically. If not, turn it on. The computer should recognize the camcorder, you'll get an icon in your system tray, lower right part of screen . Click on this and you should get all kinds of help to go further.
