Actually, I've had it for a while, just haven't bothered trying to use it with my computer until now. It's a Sony Handycam DCR-HC20. It came with software, which I installed, and it's called Picture Package. Seems like cool software, you can stream the video from the camera, you can set it to automatically add music and fades between shots and edit the video for you, you can save the video footage to a VCD or CD-R, hell you can do almost anything...EXCEPT just save the raw video footage to your hard drive. I have no idea why, but there's just no way to get the plain, unedited footage onto my computer without saving it to a CD first. Sony never fails to amaze me with their lack of common sense. I refuse to waste a CD-R every time I want a video on my computer when I already have to buy mini tapes for the camera. So what I'm asking is, does anybody know some kind of software that can just record video straight from a digital camera to the hard drive via USB?
