Sony Handycam dcr-hc96

I have no idea wear the handycam station is. I looked online to buy another one but cant find anywhere that sells it. I have no way of transfering my videos without that right? How do I get another one? This really stinks because I have not even transfered 1 tape yet! I really dont have to buy a completely new camera right? Someone please help me!!!!

Thank You

Get a firewire cable and connect your camcorder to your computer and capture the video using video editing software.

firewire ans software

In reply to: Firewire

Thank you. I tried for hours to put the video onto my computer and could not figure it out. Is there anything I will need other than the firewire? Does just about anywhere sell the firewire (like walmart ot kmart)? What type of editing software is good?

Thank You!

you have a problem without the station

In reply to: Sony Handycam dcr-hc96

As you know, with your camera, all your cables - including firewire and USB and power - connect to your docking station and the the camera connects to the docking station. The Sony web site does not appear to sell it standalone, either. If you can find a Sony authorized dealer or repair place, they *might* be able to get it as a "repair" part for you... or try eBay.
