Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC101E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

I can't get Firewire to work on my Sony DCR-PC101e.

I have just downloaded the latest drivers for my XP machine (can't get any drivers for Vista) - the USB works, but my computer does not even see the Camera when using the Firewire connection - any suggestions?

I need drivers for my Sony DCR-HC24 for Windows Vista, Sony support Web don't have. Thank You Regards Jaume


Your Sony Camcorder was basically setup to work with Windows XP, in that timeframe, and making it work with Windows Vista could be problematic. However, you may be able to make everything work by using the i.Link connection on the camera to a i.Link card on a desktop PC. Sony says this might work in Vista if you upgrade your original software. As far as drivers for the IEEE-1394 card, they are mostly already built-in in Microsoft Windows XP, VISTA etc. and should be no problem. If you do not already have a firewire card, get one from Amazon online.

See this link for software information from Sony:

Good Day! How will i connect and manage my camera to computer.


For the DCR PC101E you need to use a firewire cable or 1394 cable or the i-Link cable which goes to your computer this is one and the same thing with different names. However if your computer does not have a connection for this you must go and buy a 1394 pci card that you have to connect inside your computer. These usually come with the software drivers for the 1394 card.
