I'm assuming you have tried connecting it to your computer with the proper connector. It said something like no drivers for this. Then installing it (with CD or something) anyways and it said not compatible or something.
First, Windows 7 professional and Windows 7 Ultimate have a "Windows XP mode". So if you have one of those versions you could try this. Otherwise skip to the next part. It may work without it but if it doesn't, just use Windows XP mode. Which you can download here. The Microsoft Windows 7 compatability site also says the DCR-HC-30 is compatible.
Second, are you sure it is a "DCR-30?" I did a quick search on the Sony website, and the only
thing I could find was a "DCR-HC30." There might be a "DCR-30" but
you can try the DCR-HC30 drivers. Which does support Windows 7. It shouldn't mess up your computer installing this driver because it has to be the right hardware, otherwise it wouldn't be in use.
If your Sony camera DCR-HC30 doesn't show live view to record and playback previous recordings good then its problem of bad CCD Imager and this part will be replaced. Sony will repair your camera free of cost and you will pay shipping charges only. Click Sony CCD Support for details. Thank you.
i have an idea for that. try to use windows xp OS and download the driver that ill provide for you. after you download install it to your pc and plug your device i hope it recognize. if does, upload your video then use any movie maker such as ulead movie maker, nero movie maker, windows movie maker etc.. and save it as any video types that you like such as avi, divx, dvd, vcd, ect.. now you have your videos on your computer. hope that helps!
