This camcorder should not require a driver in order to capture the footage. Start up your capture software, power-up the camera in VCR mode and then connect the Firewire cable. It should then allow you to playback the tape and capture the contents. Here is the manual online: http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/94/LYT1353-001A.pdf If you need a simple program to capture the footage look to: http://www.virtualdub.org/
Your video-editing software (including Windows Movie Maker) should also capture the footage.
