There seems to be a few of you guys here who know alot about pc's, and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about copying video from a camcorder?
I have a Sony DCR-TRV255 handycam, plus the software to go with it. So far I have managed to make an original video, using clips from video footage and adding music, and I can copy video and burn it straight onto CD. But what I can't seem to do is copy the original footage that I've shot, straight onto the hard drive. When it copies to CD it's in DAT file, not mpeg or anything similar. I have spent the day searching the internet and have only come up with 'iLink' which is a cable used to copy from camcorders. I haven't got anywhere to plug the other end of the iLink cable into my pc, so that's not an option for me. Is there any software that converts DAT files to mpegs? Am I making any sense? :lol:
I have Sony's cust care number and will ring them 2moro, see if they can help me. Otherwise it looks like I will end up having to buy a different camcorder (which I don't really want to do as mine is only 2mths old)
Any help and info would be greatly appreciated :)
