I recently bought a Sony HandyCam and have trouble copying/transferring video
to my Dell Desktop. I am using the software that came with the camera and have
no problem transferring still shots off of the memory stick. However when I try
to viwe/transfer video I get a "Fatal Error " and my PC shuts down. I believe
that it may have to do with a conflict with Roxio, any advice?

Thx,

Gene

You didn't mention HOW you are interconnecting your camcorder
with your computer. Be aware that you likely can *NOT* use the
USB connection for full-motion video. Firewire is the most common
interconnection used for consumer video capture.

You might consider using FireWire, i.Link, IEEE 1394 (all the same). Your
PC will require FireWire capability if it doesn't already have it (it's
relatively cheap).
