Hello, I connected my DCR-HC54 (minidv) to computer using USB cable (come with camcorder). latest PMB is installed on windows 7 64-bit home premium. It gives following message: Cannot find the Handycam (Tape). Check the i.LINK connection to the Handycam. What to do? If USB cable is not used, why sony gives it with camcorder?

I have a Sony DCR-HC28 and am trying to transfer information from a midi-DV tape to a laptop. What method would you recommend for the transfer? I originally looked at a firewire to USB adapter, but have not seen one that was reviewed as successful anywhere. So currently I am looking at the Dynex Firewire 800 ExpressCard Adapter with a standard 400-800 Firewire cable. This will cost about $60-70 for both parts. Is this the right method to use, and is there are cheaper or better method?

Hi - I recently bought an iMac OS X Leopard. iPhoto works really well with my Sony camera to USB port. However for iMovie I tried linking my Sony DigitalHandycam Model DCR-PC100E to Firewire socket and nothing happens at all. Camcorder works fine in isolation and with different leads works on my old Vaio PC and to television. Can I get a "converter" or do I need to buy a camcorder that appears on Apple website as compatible ? I hope you can help. Regards

Compatability? Hi, My new Sony DSC-W80 camera is not recognized by my computer (running Mac OX10.3.9).  The camera and cable are fine, since my PC has no problems.  The message on the camera reads "USB Mode Connecting...
