Does anyone know the name of the cable I need to connect my Sony Camcorder to my laptop? Obviously one end is a USB connector but does the actual cable have a name. I'm hoping I can go to Maplins and sound like I know what I'm talking about!
usually something like this:-
...but there are a few different types of usb connections out there :/
ah well thats the question really!Originally Posted by beccaberry, post: 27386
Some corders have JUST firewire, some have JUST usb, some have both.
Definitely needs checking. Sony was a huge firewire fan so :/
Looks more like firewire (iLink) to me although it does have usb too.Originally Posted by Claire, post: 27490
Here's a section from a sony forum:-
"USB cannot be used to capture full quality video to the PC. You will need to get (if not already on your PC) firewire. "
Now the question is, where are you capturing your video to? desktop/laptop and does THAT have a firewire port?
