Cant use DV Camcorder as PC mic anymore

Q: Cant use DV Camcorder as PC mic anymore

I have a Sony DCR-HC19E
I used to use this on my XP machine as a mic using USB connectivity. It was automatically configured to be used as a mic as soon as i plugged it in.

I need to do the same on my vista machine except now im using Firewire instead of USB.
When i plug it in i get no mic functionality or do not how to use it.

Can somebody please help me out ?

Thank you
Scott

Hi everyone,A few days ago, I suddenly couldn't update AVG anymore. It always gives me an error, telling me the connection with the server failed. I also noticed that I can't connect Limewire (P2P program) anymore and opening movie streams in Windows Media Player doesn't work anymore either.I searched some forums for a solution and I found someone with a similar problem, who also told he couldn't execute the "cmd" and "regedit" commands anymore. I tried it on my own computer and I can't run those things anymore either. When I try executing them, the explorer goes all weird and shuffles the program bars on the task bar.I've manually downloaded the latest updates for AVG, installed them and did a full scan, that didn't find a thing. I also ran AdAware, which said I had some malware, which I removed with it. Then I also ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, which found some more malware, so I removed it, rebooted my pc, but the problems still exist...I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem, because it's really anoying...Here's my HijackThis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 20:37:26, on 11/05/2009Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16827)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\At...

Hi,
I bought a camcorder Sony, DCR-SR47 and now I am trying to upload the videos into my computer. I installed the PMB software that came with the camera (which by the way, no opens up everytime I upload pictures from my camera and is very annoying).
The point is, that every time I try to connect the camcorder to the PC and choose the option USB CONNECT is showing me the following message
UNABLE TO RETRIEVE THE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION
I would like to know if anyone can help me, as I would love to send the videos to my friends.

Sincerely,
nanush27
 

A:Camcorder

Instead of using the Sony software, try importing it through Windows Movie Maker.

Plug your camcorder in, and if the Sony software loads, close it. Open Windows Movie Maker (it's in the Start menu, All Programs) and try a File -> Import, and see if Movie Maker can detect the camcorder. If it can, and if you can import the videos that way, then something is wrong with the Sony software (try reinstalling it?). If it cannot detect the camcorder, then maybe you have to enable a setting on the camcorder to get it to communicate with the computer, or maybe something is wrong with the cable (doubtful).

I brought my self a Panasonic HC-V750 Camcorder and my computer with now notice the camera with software and connection cable that came with it. I brought a card reader and used that to download the photos to my computer and it goes into the editing software that came with it. But when I played it, it played upside down and I can not find any way to rotate it. I copied it on to my computers Desktop that would not play using anything on my computer or upload to YouTube. My computer is a HP using Windows 7.

If you are talking about your pictures being upside down, you can just right click on the picture that is upside down and select either to rotate the picture clockwise or counter clockwise.

I am looking at buying a new digital camcorder, but I am a bit frazzled over which type. What is the best type of digital camcorder? It looks like Mini DV is the best. I would like one where I can edit the movies on my PC, and eventually burn them to DVD.

A:DV Camcorder To Pc

Windows Moviemaker. will allow you to caputre it---I assume your camcorder has a firewire port of a usb port or both--Use the firewire port if you have one, if not USB will be okay----go from your camera's firewire port to your computers firewire port (you need a cable). Turn the camera on. Open up Windows Moviemaker and find the capture command.

If you want to make a dvd from your captured video, you will need a program that can compress it to mpeg--------there are a ton of them out there.

You need to buy a firewire card and IEEE 1394 cable in order to capture your film from your camcorder to computer. Video editing software is required.

Hi
We recently backed up our camcorder tapes to the an external HD on our PC using Firewire.

We now need to copy back to the tape via the camcorder from the PC.
The Camcordr says it has DV In/Out but I can't seem to get the PC to output the file.

Reason for all this is that we've bought a DVD Recordr for the TV and it does a good job of making DVD's from the Camcorder quickly. Unfortunately one of the tapes got damaged but we've got the footage on our HD. Trouble is we can't get it to the DVD recorder unless we can get the footage back onto the camcorder.

Any help appreciated.

A:Camcorder Dvd

The easiest way without using software is to buy a standalone DVD recorder which has a firewire (IEEE 1394) input connector to accept the lead from your miniDV camcorder. If you're in the UK, the larger Tesco stores have one made by Liteon costing ?75 which I've just bought. Set your camcorder running on playback, pause it, set up your DVD recorder to the correct speed for the length of footage you wish to record, start recording and press 'play' on the camera.

To do it on a computer you'll need some video-editing software which can also create a DVD-video. Top dog at the moment seems to be 'Cyberlink PowerDirector' about ?50 (UK Pounds). You'll obviously need a DVD-writer in your PC as well, of course.

I have a Dell laptop, 2 port firewire card, Ulead, Media Now Cd & Burning, 200 blank dvd's.
I have spent 4 days trying to make dvd's and I'm about to go crazy and trade my laptop in for a new coach purse.
When Ulead 10 tries to capture my camcorder, it will play for a minute then it keeps getting stuck and stopping even though my camcorder is still playing fine, then I will get a your video/file is corrupt and will be deleted message.
I was able to make one dvd the other day and surprisingly it plays on my dvd player but the dvd gets stuck in places, just like when its downloading to the laptop.
Using Media Now I was able to burn directly to dvd but there was nothing on it when I played it back.
I also have roxio on my laptop and I get an error message from that aswell.
This project is starting to turn into a nightmare. I'm wondering if it would just be easier to buy a recordable dvd player and record my dvd's that way.

A:Camcorder

The cable you're speaking of connects to your camera and to a 9 pin COM port on your computer which will transfer data that is on tape. The method you want to use, your pc will have to have a IEEE 1394 (Firewire) port and have Windows XP or 2000 installed, I maybe wrong.

What kind of cable do you use to transfer your video onto your PC. If you use the standard cable that came with the camcorder then the quality won't be as good. If you use a firewire cable then the quality should be improoved.

A:Camcorder

Go to your favorite electronics department store (Best Buy, Circuit City, Office Max, etc. in USA) and be amazed (like I am) at the small size of camcorders these days.

Your major selection will be between cameras with tape, DVD, or internal hard drive storage. I think tape will be the smallest. I prefer tape myself. I'm ruling out the smallest cameras that only record on memory cards because they have the least recording time.

If it were my camera, I'd want (1) image stabilization, (2) autofocus, (3) LCD display, (4) optical viewfinder, (5) good low light capabilty (6) small size. Decent camera that meet my needs are only a couple hundred bucks in the US, so it's not a tragedy if I don't buy the best one. It's hard to go wrong with Canon, Sony, JVC....

Don't forget a spare battery, appropriate PC cables, and video edit software for your PC, assuming your PC can handle the software.

If it is not installed correctly, you will see a yellow exclamation point, and we will go from there.

Let me know how it goes!

Also, in your next post can you please provide some further information about your setup? I see you have "Vista Home 32bit" is this Home Premium or Home Basic? Also, what is the brand/model of your camcorder. Are you able to successfully connect other firewire devices with that port?

First of all, editing video from the same drive that the application sits on is always a problem. The best way to do it is to have the application sit on drive C and have a dedicated drive that just holds your video clips.

How much space do you have left on drive C and have you recently defragmented it? If not, do so and see if you can get it up to speed.

I'm thinking about buying a Panasonic SDR-H60 60 GB Hard Drive Camcorder with 50x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom for $325 that lists for $549. It's new.

Read one review that said the pic on his tv was horrible, and another that said he really liked the camera except that there was a little audio noise. Most reviews were positive, considering the price for the class. Anyone here have any ideas? Other camcorders?
I wanted the 60GB harddrive, so that I can put it on my computer without a lot of hassels. I already have a Sony HDV/DV switchable full HD 1080. My complaint is that it uses tapes which in the long run becomes expensive, and there's a bit of a hassle getting it on the computer.

A:Any comments on a Camcorder?

If you don't want tape, have you considered a Flash camcorder rather than a disk drive version. These record mainly to SD digital camera cards which make them even more versatile.

You can simply remove the card after shooting footage and place in a card reader and transfer video files to PC for editing. Some models you might consider are Panasonic SD9, Canon HF100 both are High Definition or perhaps the Panasonic S7 if you just want DVD quality.

This is the future and preferable to a fixed hard disk which could be troublesome if a fault develops. Anyway there are other Flash camcorder models worth investigating. Hope this helps

Hi - I know others have had a similar problem but I've not seen a solution that applies to me.

I'm in the UK and have recently bought a Canon MV800 camcorder. I've also installed a Firewire card; windows recognised it and it is listed in device manager with no exclamation marks. I've installed the Ulead software that came with the firewire card. However, when I connect, with the camera on, in playback mode it just isn't recognised by Windows Movie Maker or Ulead. Apparently XP should have the drivers. I know it's not the camera or cable at fault as I've tried on work's Powerbook and it worked first time.

The live video feed is there because when I click on the camcorder in "My Computer" the video image appears on the screen.

Please let me know if anyone has any thoughts.

A:camcorder to laptop

I could be wrong but it sounds like you have a channel missing. This suggest that if you play it back on a laptop the sound will be unavailable. I'm not entirely clear on the details yet.

You currently have:

One 3.5mm jack plug in the cam itself with a lead that then splits (red and white/2 channels)

Any other ports on the camera itself?

Various options at the laptop end.

I'll have a poke around on the net later and see what I can come up with if no-one else has solved it by then. I had some nightmares getting my DV cam ported initially, it's a fairly standard problem tbh.

Ok I've got a camcorder that does'nt have firewire, so basically I hook it up to my dvd player, press play and record what I want onto a dvd.

Then I've got the dvd, but when I transfer the files to my computer they are like audio_ts and video_ts how do I convert them so I can watch my home movies?!?

Many Thanks! Max!
 

A:Camcorder to computer

These are the dvd files. Why are you transfering them to your PC??
You can play them on your pc from your DVD drive. If the disc is not finalized, double click on the Video_ts.ifo & your player software should open.

If you want to play the dvd just created on your TV be sure that the DVD has been FINALIZED after you do the copy to your recorder. Otherwise the disc will not play.

Hello,
I have a panasonic Nv DS15 cam corder, which , from what I understand has a DV OUT port, but no DV IN.
From what I understand DV in means you can record onto the digital camera and dv out means you can record FROM the camera ONTO a dvd, or your hard drive.

(if of course you have the firewire connection!)

what I am wondering, is
a) anybody out there using this camera and how have you managed with putting stuff on your computer? did it go well?

b) does anyone know if I could use the pc as a TV for playback only? Ie: film something and then just watch it on the pc monitor but not record it onto the pc.

I have an older sony analog camcorder so I know nothing about the new stuff out. I was wondering if this one was any good? It's the JVC GRD230US MiniDV Digital I think, will know for sure tomorrow. If not this model one close to it I think.

The gaming place up the street has been giving away the latest electronic gadgets and my friend won this. She is a senior citizen that doesn't even have a computer and has no use for this. Her TV is old and on the fritz and she could use a new TV more. Sunday I won a JVC 27 inch flat screen TV in the drawing. We have a 32 inch in the living room, a 27 in our bedroom and my son has a 27 all fairly new TV's so I am thinking of swapping prizes with my friend. We have to go to the electronics store tomorrow to pick these up and I think this is the TV they are going to give me.

This is stupid but do you put DVD's in this camcorder to record the footage or how does this thing work to record the video and get it into the computer and how many minutes of footage can you take? Have read the specs over and over and I am so confused. My computer is an HP 533W so will I be able to use it with what I have?
 

A:Mini DV camcorder

Thats a single chip DV camera that takes mini-DV tapes (about 4.95 for 60 minutes). I am not a big JVC fan, they aren't very reliable and you dont get alot of bang for the buck. I would look at theOptura series or Elura series. Sony also makes some nice cameras in that price range. You might also take a quick surf over to www.camcorderinfo.com--a very good resource for novice video people.

As far as your specifics go--the standard DV camera gives you an hour worth of recording time. What you do is make your movie, then download it to your computer via a firewire cable. Once you have it in your computer, you can edit it with one of the many NLE (non-linear editing) out there. After editing it, you can either print it to tape---or print it to DVD. Before printing it to DVD, you will have to convert it to mpeg. There are hundreds of software titles that will accomplish this. Last but not least, your computer should be able to handle basic editing--but if it has a Celeron chip, dont expect responsive editing. Its always nice to put your captured video on a seperate drive---and video eats up loads of drive space.

Lots depends on the quality of your camera---the number of sensors (three is good) the quality of the lens etc. The camera you are thinking of buying is a one chip camera. You will see some improvement, but if you really want to step up, look at a 3 chip camera.

I have just decited to take up ameture movie making, and just got my hands on a Canon XR80 Digital Camcorder. Shot some scenes, and I wanted to put them on my PC by Firewire. I have Firewire on my PC, and my PC picked it up and I saw output on my PC in Pinnacle Studio 8, so the setup DID WORK.

The next day, I was going to transfer all my footage from the DV Camcorder to my PC, and Pinnacle could not pick it up. Windows XP Pro didn't notice it either the second time. So I tried a system restore to yesterday when it worked (had shown a friend how to use System Restore with a self-made checkpoint after my Pinnacle Studio 8 experence with the DV Camcorder). This did not help, and now my PC isn't picking up anything from the Camcorder.

I have tried changing setting on the camcorder, and restarting Windows, turning the camcorder on/off and reinserting the Firewire cable. The FAQ on the Canon site did not help any, and all it says to do in the manual is to "plug it in".

I was thinking it was either the actual cable or the onboard firewire (have an Abit NF7-S V2 with MCP-T firewire).

This problem is really making a major problem in my life (this movie is for a school project) !!!

Yes. You must first convert them from analog to digital-----You can use a decoder box or a video card that supports analog to digital conversion. If you let us know what your budget is I can make a more specific recommendation. There is one other option. If you borrow a DV camera that supports passthrough---then you go from your VHS-C player to the DV camera and the DV camera into your Pc via firewire.

Hello guys

I hope someone can help me because I am not making any progress with this.

I've recorded on my (analogue) camcorder some of my mates playing a football match recently. I used the cables with it to burn it onto a DVD via my DVD Recorder. The first time I tried it, my computer seemed to play the DVD but did not show any files.

I've tried to copy again from the camcorder to the DVD Recorder and now files do appear on the disc when put on the computer, but there are several files and none of them seem to play individually.

Basically, I want to do some copies of this game for my friends, but I don't know whether I have to convert them into one file. The DVD does play on the computer though. I'm not sure if I need some specialised software to do this, although I've burned CDs before with no problem.

Could someone please tell me what the best, easiest, cheapest method of getting this DVD I already have done copied? I don't really want to go through the whole process with the camcorder again if I can help it, and likewise I don't know if the disc I have already done would actually play on someone else's DVD player.

Hope someone can help me. Here is a list of some of the files that were listed on the DVD:
 

A:Camcorder to DVD then copying help

I've been successful copying dvd's with Nero in the past. However you can also use DVD Shrink to do this. It's really meant to do a straight copy but it will do it. DVD Shrink is meant to take a full size dvd (eg. store purchased - burned at dual layer being 8GB) and shrink it to fit on a generic DVD/R with a size of 4.7GB. You should be able to use this process to make those copies I would imagine tho. It's a free program, just search it in google and you should be able to find it.

A:windows not seeing my camcorder

Does windoze recognize your firewire card and is it set up correctly? Set it up per the directions that came with the card and the camera should pop up as being added as soon as you connect it.

Hi Everyone,
Please forgive me if Im posting this in the wrong category, new to the site, and have been searching the answer to my questions to no avail!
Im looking to buy either a Cannon Legeria G25 or Panasonic X920 Full HD Camcorder. My confusion is this. How do they connect to a computer. Do they come with a wire as do older fashioned camcorders and if so do they solely connect to Mac, or do they connect directly to PC too? I've had years of problems with the older minidv camcorders and actually being able to connect them to download.
As you can tell Im not a techie person, but a photographer who gets a bit lost when moving over to video..
Thanks in advance Emma

I'm thinking about the idea of getting a new camcorder. Now, this isn't something that will happen in the immediate time frame. This is just research. I have used camcorders ranging from when they first came out in the 80s, to broadcast cameras (my dad worked in sports for a time), to more modern home camcorders. I now know what I want in a camcorder:
- manual control of the focus/zoom/iris with the option of switching to auto control
- storage in the form of an HDD, SSD, or flash (I added flash because the SSD wiki page differentiates the two)
- does not need to be HD (I'm not neccessarily looking to do high quality recordings, I just like having a camcorder that I have more control over and can go straight to digital)
From what I can find, the starting price will be $1k. Feel free to add any input.
 

A:Camcorder with more control

I have This Remote on the Tripod handle for my Sony Camcorder ...
Fingertip Start - Stop and Zoom without touching the camera is very handy.
Is something like this what you're asking about ??

I have a Samsung VP-D55 camcorder. I havn't used it in about a year. I played a tape on it today and at first it played in colour, now it will only play in BW, even when connected to the TV. When I'm in record mode it's only showing in BW on the little screen. I'm not a bit technical but in a panic as I want to capture my kids doing a Sky Dive tomorrow, can anyone help me please?

If you are in the UK, make sure the camera is set to record in PAL and not NTSC.

Mini-Dv is the current standard, even $50-60 thousand dollar cams use mini dv. The end of the tape era is near but not quite yet. Stay away for cams that record direct to disc or HD. They record in MPEG, DV by comparison has about 3 times the data rate. Quiality is realy dependant on the cam checkout www.camcorderinfo.com

Any tips on a semi-professional camcorder buy?

I have around
1500 to 2000 to get one, within the UK.
that's around $2300 to $4000 (according to xe.com)

I'm utterly bewildered by the array of choices and options and just wondering if anyone out there has a recommendation, got something already or simple tips what to look for around this price range.

Any help much appreciated.

The camcorder connects to the computer using a Mini-USB to USB 2.0 cable. When connected and turned on the camcorder should show as a DVD-RW.

If one did not come with your camcorder, you will need to buy one.

If you have a data cable for you cell phone, it might work.

This is what one looks like.

Or if you hav e a USB cable.

You can probably find something cheaper on-line at Newegg or E-bay.

Couldn't find anything at Best Buy, Walmart, or Target.

Did find this suprisingly at Walgreens.
