Hi there
Vista does not support that camera, you will have to use an XP machine to copy to, this is because there are many hardware and driver issues with Vista.

Thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Did your camera come with a software or driver disc for installation in XP. If it did then install the disc in Vista and then go to the Sony website and check for an update or patch to the driver software for your particular model and apply it. I have a DVD camcorder and and solved the problem in the same way. Else the only way is to capture video through the firewire port if your camera has one. This is not going to need any drivers at all.
