[size=7]I have a Sony DCR-TVR250 camcorder which connects with a USB cable to my computer. the software supplied with the camera controls the camera just fine, but this Easy CD & DVD burner software will not. It acts like my camera is an analog camera.
I have logged a trouble ticket with roxio but have not rcvd a reply from them yet and also can not seem to find out where on their web site to see if anything has been answered there...
ayone know what i can do if anything?
Thanks

In general, USB connected cameras can't be captured by any of the Roxio programs (even EMC9 can't do it)

Your best bet is to capture using either the camera s/w or Windows Movie Maker and import the .avi file into ECD6 and render from there
If it ain't broke, fiddle with it until it breaks, then fiddle with it until you get it fixed

Well, I saw where Roxio does not cover creator 6, " 1) We have a product called Easy CD & DVD Creator 6
:) 2) We have a different product called Easy CD & DVD Burning (in a red box). :huh:
3) The included software is actually very similar.

Item one was discontinued years ago and now support has ended (current content will remain in place on the web).  :D Item 2 is still sold as a bargain product and is still supported. :D
but they do Burner (in the red box) that is what i have...... and i have no problem in capturing the video with it, but it is suposed to also control the camera but it doesn't. In the help, it states that it will not control an analog camera, but it will a digital.... my camera is a digital...

Again, while I'm not sure if V.6 worked with FireWire, none of the Roxio programs accept digital video via USB.  You need either FireWire, or an alternate program for capturing, then burn with Roxio.  Bear in mind that, whether called Creator or Burning, there has been no software update since 2003, and won't be.  The current Version is EMC 9, but before considering the Trial Version of that, CHECK YOUR COMPUTER SPECS.  It demands an awful lot of computer.

Version 6 is a very basic Video editor.

I have already done 8 different captures and 3 different movies using my USB. The only problem I have encountered with the software is the control of the camera.

Like I said, The program works just great for what i need except for it NOT controlling the functions of the camera. I have to manually control the camera and hit the capture button provided by the program. just an annoyance but i hate when things don't work the way they are suposed to.

This is a basic function - no Roxio suite will control ANY camera that is connected via USB. In fact they even have problems with capture.

This is down to the camera and computer combination and nothing can alter that.

Camera control will ONLY work if the connection is Firewire (and even then may need a more recent program to get it to function correctly.

If your camera does have Firewire connection capability, you could try using a PCMCIA Firewire adaptor - but I can't guarantee that will work with v6

Ok... i got the firewire after a lot of searching in my area. My laptop only has a 4 wire connector and so does the camera, but after about 6 different stores i got one, and that works. Everything now works properly. no errors doing anything except the "direct to DVD" function which it is because my camera isn't a DVD camera i am guessing.
Thanks everyone and i hope each and everyone who is having some sort of trbl with this gets their's working also  :)

Thanks for the feedback and glad it's working for you - have a great time taking those happy snappies and don't forget to shout 'CUT' then the subject is about to step backwards into the pool :)
