This is a Firewire cable, also known as DV or IEEE 1394. Sony call it i.Link. It is not compatible with USB and you cannot get a lead to connect it to a USB port. There are converter/adapters that are supposed to allow Firewire to connect to USB but many forum posts say they do NOT work for video transfer. Unfortunately, most Mini-DV cameras will not transfer video by USB cable, even when they have a USB connection (it is usually only used for still pictures).

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you had a desktop PC, you could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to the expansion bus. This will come with a driver for the card.

I have a Samsung Mini-DV, and do transfers with it to the one computer I have that has a Firewire port. It is the only thing I use that computer for, and the reason I haven't thrown it out.

I need picture package software


Forget those software.

Even windows movie maker can do as good job (if not better than) those pic.package thing.But you need to use Firewire cable&card to do the job.Firewire connection is also far superior than USB cable connection,too.



-Stable,trouble free data transfer during video capture.
-Video transferred at its maximum resolution 720*576 pixels or something like that compared to 340*240 via USB transfer.
-100% supported by any video editing program,even the simplest Window Movie Maker.In other words,forget Sony's software - use something else that wouldn't run you.


Of course,those Firewire cable&card might be not very globally available like USB device.But still easy to find and relatively cheap to buy anyway.

The supplied Picture Package software is not compatible with the Vista Operating System.

Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893


NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Laptop not recognizing USB connection from HC20


I'm not sure why the camcorder is giving you an error message... but you should know that this "Burn VCD" thing is a pretty nasty hack from Sony. 

This will only work in conjunction with the Sony "Picture Package" software.. you have to have that running and properly set up for the video transfer via USB to work. And if it does work, the quality will be horrible -- 1/4 the resolution of you DV images, and arguably worst than VHS tape.

For a real video transfer from any mini-DV camcorder, you need a Firewire connection (Sony calls this i.Link), and a video
capture utility (Windows Movie Maker will work, that's included with most versions of Windows these days). A good video package will allow you to convert the DV footage into DVD, which maintains the quality of the DV camcorder's native format.

Sony HC90 and Picture Package software


Ask "What is this Picture Package software?" And what does it do? Here's the gimme that you don't move video with this product: " Is Picture Package compatible with USB2.0? It is only compatible with USB1.1 not 2.0." From the Sony site. Look to other software and move to a Firewire connection.
