Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Sony DCR-PC5 ntsc, I can't import to my computer the old videocassettes recorded by a Sony DCR-PC3E pal. The controller works, the timer on my mac goes on but the screen is totally blu. Is there something to do? (sorry for my terrible english, I'm Italian)



Answers :

First it is important of the cassettes plays on the camera ...Sometimes they do not want to play on another one ...after that you need to use a fire-wire port for to be able to import ..and of course the camera driver installed if it is needed..The procedure is not to import ..but record video ..and playback while doing it ...So you actually playback the video on the camera ..and record in imovie ..and save int a location ...When you click record..select the camera as device from the list ..

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012The DCR-PC5 Camcorder is recording the videos in MiniDV tapes. For transferring the videos to the Mac Computer, you've to use the i.LINK (Firewire/IEEE1394) cable.
\015\012I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable for transferring the video from the Camcorder to the computer, as the Mac/Vista/Windows 7 Computers are not compatible with the USB Streaming feature. The DV IN/OUT jack can be used to connect the 4-pin i.LINK cable from the Camcorder to the 4-pin or 6-pin i.LINK jack on the Computer.
\015\012You require to purchase either a 4 - pin to 4 - pin or a 4 - pin to 6 - pin i.LINK / Firewire cable depending on the number of pins on the i.LINK / Firewire port of your computer (since Camcorder will have only 4PIN i-LINK, while the Computer may have a 4PIN or 6 PIN i.LINK port).
\015\012To transfer the video using the i.LINK interface, you need to set the Power switch to VCR mode and use any video capturing software like iMovie (Mac) or Windows Movie Maker (Windows).
\015\012The video tapes recorded in PAL Camcorders are not Compatible for playing back in the NTSC Camcorders. If the DCR-PC3E PAL Camcorder is working then you can connect the DV OUT of the Camcorder to the DV IN port on the DCR-PC5 NTSC Camcorder and can record the videos to the tape in the Camcorder. This will help you in transferring the videos from PAL to NTSC. You can do this vice verse also.

\015\012This should resolve the issue.

My photos always upload to my MAC automatically when I plug the camera into the computer.
