I want to connect my viewcam VL-Z3 to my latop, but I dont have a driver to support it. Can you help?
I had this problem too.
I searched the web high and low. Even wasted 2.99 on what claimed was the driver but turned out to only be instalation directions.
From what I understand, Sharp no longer supports camcorders, so obtaining the dirver from them is out of the question.
Connecting your camcorder to your computer via USB is only used to transfer photos from your SD on your camcorder. You cannot transfer video via this method.
Here`s what I did to solve the problem of not having the driver.
I got a $10 SD card reader for my computer and this solved the problem.
To transfer video from your VL-Z3U to your computer, all you need is a firewire cable .
Assuming that you have a firewire port on your computer, simply connect your camcorder to your computer via firewire, power up your camcorder and your computer should automaticly recognize your device.
You can now transfer video to your computer using your normal video capture/editing software.
Hope this helps
