SOURCE: I am having trouble trying to install video stream

Windows XP has the stream uptake profile built right into it. You should not need a driver. Plug your cam into your computer and open movie maker (also built into XP) and it will ask you if you want to import. Click yes and then a drop down tab will apeer just choose your dv devise (cam)

I have windows vista and i cant install the usb driver and pixela programs for this handycam please help me.


the usb driver and pixela application is not compatible with windows vista. usb streaming is not supported by windows vista and 7 OS. however it would still be possible to transfer videos from your dv camcorder using the dv interface (ieee1394 or ilink) connection. you would need to have an ilink (ieee1394) card installed in your computer. you can check by going to device manager window. if you don't, try checking with your PC manufacturer recommendations for an ieee1394 chipset or card.if you do, all you need is an ilink cable (btw, the cam uses 4pin jack).get the correct cable for use with the PC and camcorder, and use windows moviemaker for your video capturing software.hope this helps.thanks :)

also, here's the support site for your unit:

Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7


win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)

My Sony Dvcam DCR-HC15E Mini DV Digital Camcorder is not being seen when I plug it into the USB port on my computer. I have downloaded a program called Driver Robot which is supposed to update my computer...


Go to camcorder Menu and enable USB Streaming option.
Computer / Windows will recognize camcorder and will install drivers automatically for further communications.
Thanks.

How do I get a video from my camcorder to PC?


In order to connect your camcorder to your computer, you have to install the drivers for your camcorder and windows Operating system before you connect your comcorder to your computer. Here are the steps in sequence to install the drivers.

1- Use the CD which came with your camcorder and install the drivers.
2- After installing the drivers, Connect your camcorder to your PC and turn the dial to play (Turn on the comcorder if not on).

Follow the screen until it says ready.

3- Now click start, then computer. You should see several icons with one of them having all or part of Sony DCR-HC39E Mini DV Camcorder. If you double click on that icon, you would see one or more folders with your stored pictures and videos. Now you can download, copy delete all of them.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I HAVE DCR-HC42E


You can try installing the XP drivers. See if that works. But you may have to downconvert back to XP in order to have that connectivity. Sometimes a new OS just plain breaks the connection.

If this doesn't work  The touch screen menu on the camera has a function near the bottom that turns USB Streaming on.Try this.

Another solution is to buy a firewire pci card (if it does not already have one) for your pc and a 4 pin cable to connect. 

Or else you can just download XP drivers from the sony's website  and install it.
