Hi,
Here's the USB driver for your camera:

Click download (middle of page) . Run this driver . After that connect your handycam. Now your pc will recognize your handycam and be ready to use.

Good luck !

    Well what video capture software are you using to view and edit video files? No one can give you any advice if you aren't more specific..
    What operating system? PC model? Are you using a usb2.0 port? Adobe Premiere? Kino? Details.. Details!
    Also, did you install the driver properly? Was it a zipfile? Did you unzip it to a folder? You would have plugged in the camera, fully charged, and waited for the PC to detect the device. Then it would not have been able to install the driver properly. Then you would have gone to Control Panel, then System, then Device Manager, and looked for a device in the list with a yellow exclamation mark next to it, double clicked it and pressed Install Driver, then you would have chosen the 'Let me choose the driver myself' type option, and navigated to the folder you unzipped the driver to, and clicked on it, pressed enter, waited a little and then rebooted.
    Then you would have opened the video program you are using and captured some video from it to confirm that the operating system has support for your videocamera.
    Post some details and I'll be able to tell you why you haven't been able to edit your videos yet.
    Always get to the stage where all details have been posted, before flagging any Solution as inappropriate, as this is a free service and the volunteers want to build a good Solutions database.

    Cheers

I have a Sony Digital Handycam DCR-TRV 140 NTSC from many years ago. It is my fathers and he would like me to back the videos up on the computer, however he does not have any of the software that came with...


Easiest was is to hook camcorder with dvd recorder and burn dvds, make sure to finalize each dvd so it can be playback on any dvd player.
Put dvd in computer and transfer movie files for further editing, if required.
Good luck.

Nothing happens when I turn on the camera - message C:31:23


This error usually comes when there is some mechanical fault instead of the electronic one. Maybe the gears are jammed. Try it at your own risk:
I found this on another discussion forum. Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times. Surprisingly it worked for me..

No image in either viewfinder or lcd


CCD Imager in your camera id bad and needs to be replaced. Follow the Sony web link for details.

Sony offers various models repair with CCD Imager issue free of cost but I couldn't find your model in that list. Contact nearest Sony Service Center for guide lines.
