Question about Sony DCR-HC26 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My cam.worked ok on vista.comp. crashed ,restored it to factory settings.now my firewire wont detect camcorder.
If you had it working before consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Vista is notorious for not recognizing firewire devices, especially camcorders. Try going to the Hardware Manager and updating the IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controller driver. When prompted, you can search in the WINDOWS\WINSXS directory and make sure the Subfolders box is checked. It may show that the driver is the incorrect one but continue to install it.
Afterward try plugging in your camcorder and see if it shows up.

Use USB data cable which u get with ur cam.Install the panasonic software also packed with cam.And get ur video copied to pc.But this is a slow process because of Movie copied while playing.
