20 Most Recent Sony Handycam DCR-TRV22 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Questions & Answers


after extensive searching I can't find a usb driver for windows 7 . Unfortunately the maker no longer supports later than windows 2000 for their driver. You might be able to run vmware and pretend to have an operating system that is an earlier version like windows 2000 or XP and run a driver in it for the pretend operating
system .

I do not think this camera has firewire
but it may have a memory stick
maybe you could look at if you can get a memory stick reader that suits its memory stick.

USB will connect the still photos from the memory stick.
To transfer the tapes you will require a firewire (Sony calls it iLink) cable for connection.

Are you trying to delete the manual from your computer or from the web?

If from your computer, bring up the file browser (Windows-E on a Windows machine, for example). Navigate to the folder the manual is in, right-click the file, and select "Delete." This has nothing to do with any web pages. You can do this just as well when you're not connected to the internet at all. This will also delete the entire manual, not just the first page.

If you need me to be more explicit, you'll have to be the same. What version of what operating system are you running on your computer? Have you tried to delete the manual as described? What happens when you do? Does it keep coming back? Have you tried emptying your trashcan or recycle bin?

Delete the file the same way you delete any other file on your computer. If you're using a file browser, try right-clicking the file.

Error code 31:22 indicates a problem in the cameras tape transport system. This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a defective clutch in the take-up spool or a faulty rotary mode switch. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

You should be able to connect with a firewire cable and use iMovie which will be on your Mac. No other software is necessary. Also you can use Final Cut if you have that loaded on your Mac.
