How to Transfer Movies From a Sharp VL-NZ50 Mini DV to a Computer Via USB

Updated February 21, 2017

The Sharp VL-NZ50 digital video camera relies on a miniDV tape to capture and record audio and video signals. Once you have recorded the information onto the blank tape, you will need to upload the video onto a computer in order to edit it and/or burn it to DVD. You can connect the camera to your computer with a USB cable.

Plug the USB data cable into the USB connection port, located on the side of your Sharp VL-N250 digital video camera. Insert the other end of the cable into a USB port on the computer.

Power on the Sharp video camera, then set it to "View" mode.

Open Windows Movie Maker (located on the "Start" menu) and wait for the video editing program to load onto the screen.

Select the "Capture" option, then choose the connected Sharp VL-NZ50 as the camera you want to transfer video from. Click "Record" in the program and the video uploads directly to the computer. Click "Stop" at any time to stop the video upload process.
