Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

Can not import video from camera to moviemaker

\015 We get a message saying a compatible device can not be found. What can we do?\015

Answers :

Hi there. You can't import the video because your camera records and puts out video in mpeg2 format. Windows Movie Maker will not read that format. But...good news! - Here are two things you can do to work around that problem.
\015\0121. Use the software that came with the camera to capture the video and import the resulting file into Movie Maker. OR
\015\0122. Connect your camera to your computer using an analog connection (like S-video cable) and capture the video using Movie Maker.
\015\012That will fix your problem. Thanks for coming to FixYa. Let me know if you have any other questions and if you're satisfied with my solution, don't forget to rate it a fixya.

I have a new Hitachi video recorder - DZ-GX5060SW which I bought after being reassured it would work happily with my video editing program (recently upgraded) to Pinnacle V.11 Ultimate. I can import photos no problem. Video however I am having no end of problem importing. I realise I can use Imagemaker3, but it seems limited, and I really do want to import either straight from the video camera, or at least from my DVD drive... can you please help??
