Here are some programs that might help you with your problem : DV Sub Maker (Freeware) from Mike Laba aka Krong makes DVD subtitles from DATECODE in SUB or SST format which can be used in Scenarist and ReelDVD. DV Date Time Changer can change the DATECODE. And the test version of Play DV shows the DATECODE when playing DV AVI files. See DV Date, (old name DVRecDate) a shareware Adobe Premiere plugin from Ilia Topolnitski stamps DATECODE in videos. A DVD Subtitler (also shareware) exists too! See

Pinnacle studio should work for this camera. It will be recognized in Windows XP or Vista with the correct data cable plugged into the computer without any additional drivers.

I don't know if Sony has free software available for this machine any more. You can and go to the link associated with the country that you bought your camcorder in.
