The fact of the matter is that your vivitar comes with software that works with your computer. Supposing that you have the normal windows operating system, then you should be able to have your camcorder recognised. You must have the Snap and Share video pro and Video Express that comes with it. On connecting you camcorder the computer should recognise it if it does not then the cable you are using could be the problem if you already changed the cable then the usb socket on the camcorder could be damaged. If your cable and camcorder socket are ok then you could use a USB card reader to transfer your video to the computer.
This is the step-by-step for downloading from your camera as found on Sony's tutorial page:
Turn on the computer.
On the computer, install the USB driver for the digital camcorder.
Note: Only the USB driver included on the supplied
CDROM will properly enable the digital camcorder for USB streaming.
Alternatively, you can download the USB driver
Turn on the digital camcorder to the VTR, VCR or PLAYBACK mode.
Turn on the USB streaming feature of the digital camcorder.
Connect the USB cable to the digital camcorder.
Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer.
Cue the video to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
Start the video capture software on the computer.
Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
Begin importing the recorded video with the capture software.
mac doesn't support usb streaming so that leaves us with firewire. it should be a plug-and-play connection. no need to install any kind of driver for the camcorder (but try to check if there are any available driver updates for the firewire card).if possible try to check if your computer firewire port is working by using other devices.your imovie software should detect the camcorder once connected.if not, disconnect cam, open imovie, and connect again.if still doesnt,RESET camcorder.if still the same try restarting computer with cam connected and powered on.check if you have a dv in indicator on your screen.check if firewire cable connection is secured.try diff ilink cable if available.if still no go, try a diff computer. if everything fails might also be a service issue.hope this helps.tnx:)
