Hi, I hope someone can help me as Iím having terrible trouble uploading videos of the kids from my old Sony DCR TRV 110E camcorder to my PC. Iíve tried contacting Sonyís help desk, but they werenít much help.
Iíve solved lots of problems so far, such as:
∑ Installing a firewire portí
∑ Using a ďlegacyĒ driver,
∑ Working out the exact order that everything needs to be connected, including the baffling problem that if the a/c mains charger is plugged in, the computer wonít recognise the device!
After weeks of fiddling about, I have got as far as opening Windows Photogallery (which recognises the device) but no matter what I do, the video clip does not upload.
I plugged in my modern digital camera, with a test video clip and it uploaded straight away, absolutely no issues.
Iím running windows 7 (32 bit) and the version of photogallery is 16.4.3508.205.
Can anyone help please?

Does photogallery even recognize video? Sounds like you're hooked up in some sort of stills rather than video mode.
Use WinDV as braniac suggested and make sure your firewire cable and camera settings are correct. Plugging in a mains shouldn't disable the ability to transfer over firewire, but being in "camera" rather than "playback" mode very well might.
hi, WinDV is a digital video capture/transfer tool that you use to transfer your tape to your hdd via firewire.
once you have transferred it to your hdd, you can then edit the video and convert it to dvd format using whatever software you like.
this is a screenshot of how to set up WinDV to transfer your video.
