    I've just received a free Sony DCR-H14e with a new Sony laptop, and i'm trying to figure out how to download the full quality video to the PC.

    Windows movie maker allows you to make poor quality wmv files, but I want to get hold of the full quality video. Anybody know what program I need to do this??

    Ta :)

    To get full quality video onto a PC/laptop you need to connect them together by firewire. As long as you do this then you wil get the best quality capture possible, just set Movie Maker 2 to capture as DV/AVI. No other software is required to get you started.

    Hi, maybe I'm stating the obvious here, but you'll also need a Firewire card in your PC - if it's relatively new, it may already have one fitted, otherwise you'll need to buy and fit. www.dabs.co.uk have them at very reasonable prices, as well as the cable.

    Cheers.
