How do I download to PC from Sony DCR-HC38 handycam?

by firey71 / July 16, 2007 5:27 PM PDT

I have just about made up my mind to buy the Sony 38 DVC handycam.
Don't need still photo as I have a Canon Digital SLR and a backup pocket digital camera, hence the 38 as opposed to the 48.
If anybody can suggest something better for around the same price it would be very much appreciated.
Also, I have been told by the shop that I can download to my PC using USB cable.
I had assumed I'd need firewire.
Could one of you far more knowledgeable people put me straight on this?

Firewire doesn't need any driver.

I can imagine those that look for it would be very frustrated.

to the DV port of the camcorder to the firewire port of the computer. If youor computer does not have a firewire port, install one. USB for stills; firewire for video.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
