Hi Heart of Chr....

Here is the USB driver for your Sony Handycam DCR-HC52e:

The Firewire driver is already bundled with Windows XP.

Software for viewing, editing and transferring:
DCRHC52 is compatible with Windows Movie Maker & Apple iMovie,meaning you can usually begin editing your footage straight away usingthe software already installed on your PC.

Hope this helps :)
Season's Greetings!

How can i get my images off of my camera if i don't have a cd

You don't need a CD -- You need a computer and a burner
Attach your camera to a computer via a download cable and save them to your hard drive until such a time that you have a CD/DVD burner and a CD or DVD disk then transfer them all to a CD/DVD

Need drivers for ge x500 camera

On newer operating system I think this one gets recognized but if it doesn't for you you may have to run the setup cd you should have got with the camera.
That will install any files or drivers needed as well as the image editing software.

The main page for it is here:

And the support page is here (where all the file downloads are):

Just go there and click on what you want along the left side of the screen. Make sure it is showing the x500.

If my links won't work then you need to go to

Click on our cameras then the picture of your camera. For support stuff just click on the support link and chose the picture again. That will get you to the same pages as the first links. The software should detect when the camera is plugged into the usb. I do have one canon that refuses the play nice and won't do this so I just use a card reader to transfer the pictures right off of the cards.On the same page is contact information for support don't be afraid to call them and ask them anything.

Download photos to computer

If you used a SD card in your camera then just pull that card out (when camera is off) and plug it in your laptop or use USB SD card reader and then you can copy all the images in the SD card in your computer hard drive.

If you used camera internal memory then you need to install a software called Kodak EasyShare provided with the camera in a CD. If you don't have the CD, you can download this software from kodak website. Now install this software and then connect the camera with your computer using the USB cable provided with the camera. Make sure you have batteries in the camera. When you have plugged the camera, turn on the camera and kodak easyshare software will detect the camera and let you browse the photos in the camera memory.

Do I need to install software to copy the files from camera to my pc?

Cameras come along with software cd which will help you acquire the images from camera onto pc.
The software installation is easy and just a 1 time process. Next time onwards, you can just connect your camera through a USB cable and start the camera, the software gets started automatically recognising the camera and uploading pictures and videos to your pc.
Picasa from Google can do the same task if you don't find the software cd which came along with your camera.

How to download videos from my camera to my computer

Dear Dcarres,
To start with, please install the software that came along with the camera.. ones the installation is successfully completed, Connect the camera to the computer using the USB cable provided along with the camera and the computer should automatically detect the camera and launch the software.
Even if the computer doesn't launch the software.. you can go to "My computer" and you should be able to find a new drive letter along with your C,D and CD drive..
Double click on the new drive letter and go through the folders, you should be able to find the images in there.. Copy those images from that drive and paste them in "My Documents --> My pictures" or to any other location.
Once copy is done, left click on the green arrow icon in the system trey, next to time and select option "Safely remove the device" .. now you can unplug the camera.

Please let me know if that helps.
