I'm brand new to the movie making world. I recently bought a 'Sony DCR - TRV265E'. Its a Digital 8 Handycam.
It came with a USB wire and some awful software to connect to. This led me to think the USB would suffice, but when I tried to capture the video in 'Adobe Premiere Pro' it said 'Capture Device Offline'. It took a while but I eventually realised that I may need more than just a USB (I told you I was new to all this!).
The manual only talks about USB connections with a very short reference to i.link. It doesn't mention Firewire at all. If anyone could let me know what it is I need I'd appreciate it. My budget is quite low right now so a good, cheap product will suit me perfectly.
Thanks in advance.
