    thanks for your help!

    Unfortunately i´ve already search at sony website,

    and they don´t have drivers updates for vista home premium only an uninstall tool:



    Uninstall Tool for Picture Package® and ImageMixer™ Version 1.5 Software



    The driver it suppose to come with vista but it doesn´t install automatically…

    Do you know if there’s a way to install it manually?



    Thanks again

    Rod.

Can't find Driver for Windows Vista Home Premium


heres a driver for your camcorder to your vista os. if aint working using vista then get back to windows xp and it will work using that driver.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=DCRTRV25&LOC=3

according to this it is supported with windows vista but im not so sure. just use it on your own risk.

Transfer video to computer (sony dcr-trv38)


I had a same issue but now I found one way using the fireware that comes with the DCR-TRV38. I tried on my windows XP service pack 2.
1. hook up the fireware cable both in sony and the computer. If your computer does not have fireware card, you need one.
2. switch the camera button from "off" to "camera"
3. after few seconds you will see new hardware found and will ready for use. you may also see pop up window to capture the video if you have Microsoft Windows Movie Maker (WMM).
4. open the editing s/w and capture the video. I used the WMM which gives many option to capture the video (ie:DV-AVI, high quality format and many more)

hope this helps.

Sony DCR TRV38


Good Day, you need to supply 4.5V DC regulated to the loading motor, however you should disconnect the connector from main board to loading motor, in order not to damage the driver IC. If your technically inclined, and you have the equipment, do it, if your not sure, just refer it to the nearest svc ctr. thanks
