There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading video to computer at THIS LINK
You will need to select Windows as the operating system, then your camera type, then select the type of connection.You are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire).
There is Sony software called Picture Motion Browser that you can download (you will need the number from your original CD).
If none of that helps, perhaps the driver for the Firewire (IEEE 1394) port on the computer needs to be reinstalled. You can view this driver (if it is installed) by opening the control panel\system\hardware\device manager and looking for IEEE 1394. It should say if there is a problem or if it is working. You can force it to reinstall at this point.
Provided u got a Windows XP or higher operating system in your computer, u may :-
1. directly connect the digicam to the computer's USB port (s). the Windows XP or higher operating system in your computer ll automatically recognize the digicam as a separtate storage device - copy all the contents then paste them in a folder at your hard disk,
2. Bring out the sd card - put it into a card reader (Rs. 100/- apice), the Windows XP or higher operating system in your computer ll automatically recognize the digicam as a separtate storage device - copy all the contents then paste them in a folder at your hard disk,
Hook up camera let windows say find new hardware. FOllow the prompts. Acording to Sony Xp has the driver already unless it is a 64 bit. See Below:
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. Note: If the your camera or camcorder is not recognized by the computer when connected, you may need an updated driver.
Driver information for Microsoft® Windows Vista® and Windows® XP

Windows 98 is not capable of recornizing the mass storage devices, but windows 2000 and XP, vista has the capability to automatically recognize the USB mass storage devices.
Thats why your Windows 98 is not recognizing. So, to use the mass-storage device like your pen drive you have to install device driver to your windows 98 system for your pendrive.
If you don't have the driver, then goto pendrive manufacturer site, there you can found the driver for your pen-drive for windows 98, download it, and install on your windows 98 system..... n njoy,,... :))
I could be wrong, but I don't believe that it can be - though I have never tried - this is only a guess.
Most cameras today, rather than being recognized as imaging devices by windows - are simply recognized as a mass storage device - the same as a pen drive or external hard drive. This has many advantages - but one disadvantage is the one that you mention.
Are you using the Sony Software? Perhaps a driver installed from their imaging software will allow the computer to recognize the camera as an imaging device? Other than that, I can't think of anything else.
