Hello, I have a sony DCR-PC103E and want to transfer my videos to DVD. I bought MAGIX video easy. I connected my camera via the I-link. I have chosen a new project, but I cannot see my camera or the images on the screen. Can you explain to me what to do. My heartfelt thanks
Video cannot be transferred over iLink to USB cable - the communication protocols used for iLink (FireWire) and USB are not compatible with each other.
For the DCR-PC103E the iLink - USB cable is for images only, to work with video through iLink you would need a FireWire card in the computer.
With your camera you should have a cable with 3 cinch (RCA) connectors Yellow, Red and White on one end and an iLink plug or S-Video plug on the other, use this to connect to the USB video grabber that came with Video Easy and capture from this.
I have now used a video grabber from Roxio and one from Silvercrest with the white, red and yellow plugs and connected to the usb. this doesn't work either. Magix's package didn't include a videograbber because I bought it online and was able to download it directly online
