I have a sony dcr-sr42, but i don't have the original disk for communicating with my windows xp laptop. I tried downloading drivers from sony's website, but they are all upgrades and only work if i have the original software (which i don't have). where can i download the original software?

    Hi, thanks for trying however I could not find a firewire plug on the camera. I took the whole thing to Radio Shack and they couldn't find it either. Can you tell me where to plug the fire wire in? The only ports I could find are an "av" port and a power port.

Hi, The driver normally comes with the XP OS. Make sure you use firewire cable and not the USB cable.
To download the videos, - Connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable. - Switch on the cam. - Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.
