That's because you cannot use a USB cable to transfer video from the camcorder to the laptop.

You already hit it on the head before with the fire wire.

you can't connect to what doesn't exist.

Buy a PCMCIA Firewire card.

^^^there's your answer.

You may want to invest in a firewire card if you are going to do a lot of video editing. You also need to increase your RAM to 2 gigs, minimum. A laptop is not conducive to video editing.

Hello you all, i saw this posts today and i hope somebody can help me.
I have a problem transfering video from a SONY DSR PD-100P camcorder, the device seems to not be recognized by the computer although it is connected through usb and the device is on, in "dv studio mode".
i have tried on windows movie maker and InterVideo WinDVD Creator but the problem persists.
i am running windows xp sp2 on a laptop.
The device is recognized by the computer and a proper drive is automatically installed, with no error messages.
many thanks in advance, please email me if possible <shahalammba@yahoo.com>

Read your manual, and install the software Sony gave you.

I highly doubt that Windows Movie Maker or InterVideo WinDVD knows what to do with the DVCAM videos from your Sony.

Hi,

My laptop already has a built-in firewire port and is also running on Windows Vista. But when I tried to connect JVC GR-D90U, the system cannot find the unit while in Video mode. Altho I was able to successfully transfer still pictures while on DCS mode.
