Select the appropriate method to transfer video or still images using a MICROMV™ camcorder:
The computer must have standard Audio/Video (A/V) RCA input jacks
and compatible video capture software to complete this procedure.
Because there are many different video capture applications on the market and we cannot reasonably know which video capture software you are using, Sony is unable to provide specific instructions or support for software we do not manufacture.
However, many video capture applications have detailed help files, including specific instructions about capturing and importing video from a camcorder to a computer.
The help files should be available in the Help menu of the video capture software or in a separate file on the software disc. If you cannot find instructions in the help file or on the disc included with your software, consult the software manufacturer for more detailed support information.

Notes: Capturing stops if the MICROMV™ device is disconnected from your computer, its power turned off, or the videotape ejected from the MICROMV™ device.
Notes: If the MICROMV™ device is in Camera mode, steps 3 and 4 are not necessary.
You can automatically capture all images that have an index
contained on the videotape. The captured files are imported into the
Clip tray, and then are arranged on the Product tray as scenes
