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.
YOU NEED TO PURCHASE A DEVISE CALLED CAPTURE CARD AND CAPTURE CABLE ONCE INSTALLED IN YOUR COMPUTER YOU NEED PROGRAMME LIKE PINNACLE STUDIO TO CAPTURE EDIT AND MAKE CD FOR MAKING DVD YOU NEED NERO 7 OR ABOVE
I have searched all over the web for a price on this camera and it was hard. I finally found a site that had it listed. Here is a link:
You should have the driver on the cdrom that came with the cam, as it may well be hidden within the software if you have'nt installed it.
But if the problem continues, uninstal the current drivers in add/remove programmes and re install and add your cam to a different usb port than before, although i would of thought firewire connection would be more suitable for speedier transfers.
