Transferring Video Recordings to a Computer
Transferring Using a DV Cable
You can transfer recordings to a computer equipped with a IEEE1394 (DV) terminal or
IEEE1394 capture board. Use the editing software supplied with your
computer/capture board to transfer video recording from tape to computer. Refer to
the instruction manual of the software. A driver is preinstalled on Windows operating
systems later than Windows 98 Second Edition and Mac operating systems later than
Mac OS 9, and will be installed automatically.
❍ Operation may not work correctly depending on the software and the
specifications/settings of your computer.
❍ If the computer freezes while you have connected the camcorder, disconnect
and reconnect the DV cable. If the problem persists, disconnect the interface
cable, turn off camcorder and computer, turn camcorder and computer back
on and reconnect them.
❍ Make sure that camcorder and computer are not connected with a USB cable
before connecting the camcorder to the computer using the DV cable.
Otherwise, the computer may not operate properly.
❍ We recommend powering the camcorder from a household power source
while it is connected to the computer.
❍ Refer also to the instruction manual of the computer.
