    Tried downloading from the Sony Support Site but it wont install the File. It says, that the driver cant be installed on this version of Windows (Vista)!
    Anyone got a clue how to get a working driver or do I have to install XP on my computer?

well if you were to burn them via windows vista, I'm sure you could do that directly from your computer, if not I'd just talk to a real person (custumer service line, a shop etc.)

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:

Driver for sony dcr-pc101e


Hi,
Check Sony Support Europe web page and see downloads.
I'm afraid Vista 64 bit has no support for DCR-PC101E yet.
