Transferring Video Recordings to and from a Computer Optura Xi

You can transfer recordings to and from a computer equipped with a IEEE1394 (DV) terminal or IEEE1394 capture board. Use the editing software supplied with the computer/capture board to transfer video recording from tape to computer. Windows Movie Maker (Windows ME and XP) and I Movie (Mac OS) are good examples of video capture and editing programs that are typically bundled with the computer's operating system. Additional 3rd party video capture and editing may be purchased from your dealer.

  • Operation may not work correctly depending on the software and the specifications/settings of your computer.
  • Do not disconnect the DV cable, open the memory card cover, remove the memory card, change the position of the POWER switch or turn off the camcorder and computer while data is being transferred to the computer (while the camcorder's card access indicator is flashing). Doing so may damage the memory card's data.
  • If the computer freezes while you have connected the camcorder, disconnect and reconnect the DV cable. If the problem persists, disconnect the interface cable, turn off camcorder and computer, turn camcorder and computer back on and reconnect them.
  • Before connecting the camcorder to the computer using a DV cable, make sure that camcorder and computer are not connected with a USB cable, and that no other 1394 device is connected to the computer.
  • We recommend powering the camcorder from a household power source while it is connected to the computer.
  • Refer also to the instruction manual of the computer.
  • Optional software is required for transferring recordings from the tape to a computer. Refer to the instruction manual of the software.
