I have a Sony DCR-HC27E Mini DV camcorder and a Windows XP computer that appears to only have old USB ports. Can anyone tell me what hardware/software I need to transfer to my computer and then edit (I have tried copying to DVD but cannot then download this to my computer). Any help appreciated.
I copied it to DVD using using a rewritable disc on my dvd player, finalized and then it plays on my computer but nothing more. I hope that helps.
If I open the file and send it to a folder it breaks down into several VOB, IFO & BUP files (no idea what they are).
Also, if I need some hardware suggested above, can anyone show me what the cable looks like at each end (I don't want to buy the hardware if the cable supplied won't connect my camcorder to the computer - I can't find a decent picture when searching). Thanks.
