but it seems Dynex was just the wrong choice...
There are more, but you probably got the hint... Apparently ANYTHING but Dynex...
Hello, I am really hoping that someone can help me because I have spent hours upon hours trying to get this camcorder to connect to my computer. I have a Sony Handycam Digital8 DCR-TRV260 and have had this thing for about 4 years and have NEVER been able to get video to my computer. I've tried USB streaming and of course the quality is terrible. So, I think I finally figured it out and went to Best Buy yesterday and bought a Dynex PCI host adapter model DX-FC103 and a 6 pin/4 pin firewire cable. I got it installed in my computer and was pretty excited that I'd FINALLY be able to burn my video to DVD, but when I hook it up - my computer says that Sony DV camcorder is connected, and on the camcorder it says DV in, but when I try to capture video with Windows Movie Maker or NeroVision Express, there is no picture or sound. When I push play or anything else on the computer, it does it on the camcorder, so I know that there is SOME communication, but no picture or sound. No idea why though! For the heck of it I tried USB and that worked, but not the firewire. I've read that it could be the drivers or something, but I'm not really familiar with that. So, if anyone knows what might be wrong, I'd really appreciate the help. I am using Windows XP pro. Thanks!
