idea How to transfer video to the pc from a Sony HandyCam DCR-TRV285E?

How to transfer video to the pc from a Sony HandyCam DCR-TRV285E?

The Sony DCR-TRV285 is a Digital8 tape based camcorder.

ALL Digital8 tape based camcorders transfer video the same way... just like miniDV tape... Your computer needs a firewire port. If it does not have one, hopefully it has an expansion slot so you can add one. You also need a firewire cable.

Firewire400, IEEE1394a, DV and i.LINK are all the same thing. USB won't work (you already know this). USB-firewire adapter/converters won't work, either.

Connect the firewire cable to the DV port of the camcorder and the firewire port of the computer. Camcorder needs to be in "Play" or "VCR" mode. MovieMaker (included with Windows XP and higher) will capture the video.
