My Sony Camcorder HRD-XR350VE is not recognised by my laptop (Windows Vista). Can you help please? Thanks.


Vista is very fickle about what it can and cannot regconize, so i suggest going to the website of sony and see if theres a driver, also you might want to check the device to see if theres a button or switch to change the HDD mode.

if you keep getting unrecognize usb device, then maybe your usb drivers are screwed, might need to clean out your computer of bad drivers and usb drivers, see if theres an update for your motherboard check with you appropiate motherboard provider.
good luck

I have windows vista and i cant install the usb driver and pixela programs for this handycam please help me.


the usb driver and pixela application is not compatible with windows vista. usb streaming is not supported by windows vista and 7 OS. however it would still be possible to transfer videos from your dv camcorder using the dv interface (ieee1394 or ilink) connection. you would need to have an ilink (ieee1394) card installed in your computer. you can check by going to device manager window. if you don't, try checking with your PC manufacturer recommendations for an ieee1394 chipset or card.if you do, all you need is an ilink cable (btw, the cam uses 4pin jack).get the correct cable for use with the PC and camcorder, and use windows moviemaker for your video capturing software.hope this helps.thanks :)

also, here's the support site for your unit:

Problem with compatibilty between windows vista


since you're using vista you can connect camcorder to pc uding ilink or firewire cable. usb conection would not work. no dirvers or sofwtare needed, you can use windows movie maker to capture videos. check your computer for any ilink port. it is a different connection from usb. go to www.sonystyle.com and type this model number, vmcil4615, for you to have an idea what firewire cable looks like.

I need dirver Windows Vista 64 bits for Handycam TRV-740


This was taken from Sony's Website....
Driver information for Microsoft® Windows Vista® and Windows® XP
  • The drivers needed to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. With these drivers, you should be able to connect and transfer files to a computer.
  • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows Vista operating system.
  • Detailed Windows Vista compatibility information is available for Sony Cameras and Camcorders.
  • The Windows Vista Starter edition and Windows XP 64-bit operating systems are not supported.
So as you can see...the 64 bit OS is NOT supported.  The only luck you are going to have is either go to XP, Vista 32 bit...or see if there is a 3rd party driver someone made on the internet.  Try google....but I would have to say due to the complex nature of the drivers, it is highly unlikely that anyone has made a driver that is compatible.  It just has to do with how the 64 bit OS is made.  There might be a way to use 32 bit drivers, however you might run into some issues with processing and streaming.  To my knowledge of 64 bit systems, they are backwards compatible with 32 bit applications, so you can use wither 32 or 64 bit drivers....the only downside is by using 32 bit on a 64 bit machine, you are going to suffer a little bit of performance loss.  I hope this answers your questions.

Transfer of video to laptop or P.C


I have tried to transfer some home movies from my camcorder to my Windows Vista PC and it was unable to find the drivers. According to Microsoft the drivers for the device are already installed. However Sony states that the camcorder's USB streaming feature can not be used and the device does not even show up in My computer.

More information can be found at Sony's support website or at Microsoft's Windows Support website

On Microsoft's website the model is not even shown because it is certified for use in Windows Vista
