I am using an old sony dcr-dvd201 or a dcr-dvd300 camcorder and i am trying to hook it up to my computer via usb and it will not recognize either of them. I am running windows vista ultimate. Is there...


Hi - You have to install the USB driver for Windows BEFORE you attach the camera. If you attach the camera before you install the driver the driver will be broken and not work. If you did attach the camera before the driver installation you will have to remove the driver and then reinstall it then attach the camera via USB. It doesn't make a lot of sense but Sony is very emphatic about these directions.

Hopefully you have the drivers because they don't seem to be available from the Sony support website anymore.

Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Dont know how to transfer tape from digital vide recorder tape to computer.


If you use the Sony Digital Handycam DCR-TRV350 then you may want to download your videos you've captured to your computer. Is this what you mean with your problem right?



When you downloaded your video, you will be able to use the videos on your computer.. If you want to download the videos you need to use the USB cable and installation disc that came with your camera. This is how to do it:


    1. Insert the HandyCam software disc that came with your device. Select "HandyCam" then "USB Driver" when the wizard appears. Install the camcorder's drivers. Repeat this step with each piece of software on the disc. Each program needs to be installed separately.

    2. Connect your camcorder to your computer via USB. The driver configuration wizard will appear. Follow the on-screen instructions to finalize setup.

    3. Click "Start," then "My Computer." Double-click the camcorder from the list of peripherals. From here, you can download all available data on the camcorder to your computer.

I need to download video from DCR-TRV33 to windows. Cannot find software that is compatible. Plugging in a USB cable from the camera to the computer also isn't recognized.


Since you are using a USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer, it is required to install the USB Driver and the supplied Software to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.

The required USB Driver and the ImageMixer Software have to installed from the supplied Software CD.

The detailed information to install the USB Driver and the ImagerMixer Software from the supplied CD is mentioned on the page # 153 to 157.

Click on the link below to view the instructions to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB cable.

You can also transfer the videos to the Computer using an i.LINK cable.
The i.LINK cable is better than the USB as the former transfers the videos digitally and the latter in analog form. Hence, the video quality is good for the videos transferred using i.LINK.
You will not need any supplied Software to do this.
You need only the i.LINK cable and the video capture Software like Windows Movie Maker(Pre-installed) in Windows Xp Computer.

Click on the link below to view the instructions to transfer the videos using an i.LINK cable.

Using usb


Make sure the computer contains the drivers for the camera.
If you would be using FireWire (IEEE1394) it would be no problem.

Check the box the camera came with (or Online) and install the required software. If you have done all that and it still doesn't work try to change the port you connect to. If it still doesn't work you may have an incompatibility issue or a corrupt USB driver which is resolved by reinstalling your computer USB drivers and camera drivers.
Hope it helps.

Problems installing JVC USB drivers


The JVC USB driver was written before introduction of the Windows XP system. This warning is displayed with other manufacturer’s digital cameras, also, and is not strictly a JVC phenomenon. In order to use the USB interface between the camera and your computer, select the “CONTINUE anyway” option provided in this warning display. To JVC’s knowledge, there are no negative effects to using JVC driver with Windows XP.
