No sound with pictures from my digital camcorder.

  [DELETED] 21:21 29 Dec 2003

I have recently built my own system using a Asus A7N8X Deluxe motherboard, AMD 2.8 CPU. running Windows XP Home. I have just bought a Sony DCR-TRV14E Digital Camcorder. The software that came with the camcorder was Imagemixer Ver 1.5 I have just bought Ulead DVD Moviefactory as recommended to me. I can download the Movie but no sound is transferred across. I then found I required an i-link cable which I then have purchased but after connecting the camcorder to my PC the camcorder is not detected. Am I doing something drastically wrong or am I missing something very basic. Please help it's driving me mental.

Would think that you may need a video editing card, ie- a pinnacle or matrox, are the general ones, just depends on the pocket?

I'm very new to video cameras and editing on my PC. I was under the impression that I just downloaded the images I had taken onto my PC and editied them with an editing package. Is this not the case? Do I also require a piece of hardware as you suggest or is this an option?

You need a firewire connection on both PC and Camcorder to transfer from DV tape to PC.

Thanks for your all your advice i finally sorted the problem out, after further investigation I double checked my firewire ports I received with the motherboard and I hadn't connected 1 of the two leads fully. (This wasn't covered in the manual)
