    is it the black rubber piece? because underneath that one the chord doesn't fit in!

    and underneath the grey one where it says "OPEN" the chord does not fit in there either

    Unfortunately, the only way to upload from the DCR-SR42 to the PC is with the dock. quite Frustrating!!

    Except I've misplaced the "a/v out" cord. Now what? I can't copy to a dvd without it.

You can't connect the camcorder directly to the computer. You need the docking station. The camera sits on the docking station and on the back are the outputs to connect to the computer.
