Computer not recognising USB driver

FIrstly I had to reinstall an updated version of Picture Manager software that is supplied which I have done. Before this, my PC had no problem recognising the USB. Since I have reinstalled the Picture Manager Software, the PC is no longer recognising the USB driver. I have followed the instructions in the manual, using the disc and reinstalled the disc driver. The PC is still not recognising the USB. Can someone help please? Perhaps with the upgraded version of Picture Manager (version 1.8), there is also an updated version of the device driver that I also need to install? Thanks in advance for any help you can supply!

I need to download software for handycam sony model dcr-hc1 (Picture Motion Browser versions 3.0) should have everything you need with download instructions for you individual handycam. Most cases it will automatically update your device if there is newer versions or firmware. I would bet that you can even plug your device into your computer and it will prompt you to look for updates.

Windows 7 will not recognise vdr-m70 dvd camcorder

Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.

There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.

Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.

I hope this helps.
