    I have a sony DCR-TRV310 that I got in order to transfer VHS tapes into the computer. However the camera video input turns off when the ilink is recognized by the computer. It seems that the ilink is being seen as a an input rather than an output. Do you know if there's a way to fix this?
    Thanks.

    There should be an input/output setting on the camera... if it allows for this, otherwise try setting your software to preview record and see if the camera 'fixes' itself.

    It sounds like the 310 does not have pass thru. That's why the video input turns off when the firewire is active!!
    Your only option with "non passthru" cameras is to record the VHS signal onto a MiniDV tape with the camera and then capture the DV contents via Firewire to your computer. It take longer but it does work!!
