The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.
From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.
usb streaming function is not readily supported by windows vista. this would depend on the software that came supplied with the camcorder. unfortunately, the software being incompatible and the funtion (usb streaming) not supported by driver included in the supplied cd-rom, usb connection will not work (although you can use it for still picture transfer). for tape transfer you would need to go another route which is ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) connection. it should be a plug-and-play connection. your computer should support and have a working ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) card installed. a compatible ilink cable for both devices and a video capturing software like windows moviemaker and having all the needed hardware and software then your good to go. hope this helps.thanks:)
if your computer is running windows vista or 7.forget the software.if you have win xp i don't think it's economical to buy the disc.why don't you just download the usb driver from this website: http://www.sonydigital-link.com/dime/camcorders/sd/d8/d8.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=DCR-TRV325E
with the driver installed you can get the PC communicate with the camcorder so you can get your pictures from a memory stick to import to your PC. now with videos, that would have to go a different route and you don't need the software for that.the video import would have to go through the dv (ilink or ieee1394) out jack from the camcorder to an ieee1394 port in your PC.your computer should have the required ieee1394 card installed and enabled.if you do it should then be a plug-and-play connection.all you would need is a compatible dv cable compatible with both cam and PC and a video capturing application like windows moviemaker to import your files of the tape.see p.209 of manual fig.59. hope this helps.thanks:)
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: http://support.sony-europe.com/dime/camcorders/dv/dv.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=DCR-PC101E
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 :)
You need iLink (firewire/ IEEE1394/ DV) cable to transfer movei files from DCR-TRV265E to PC and PC should have DV port to plug-in.
USB cable will not give you such facility.
You can see iLINK cable here.
I think you are using Windows Vista and facing problem to connect Sony DCR-HC53 Download Update for Picture Motion Browser software at Sony Support. You need iLINK cable to transfer movie data in to computer. iLINK cable is shown in below picture. You can have more info HERE about iLINK connectivity if you are running Windows XP in your laptop.
