Dear Sony camera user, Yes the Sony camera needs a driver in Windows PC's and no drivers are yet available for Win Vista or Win 7 PC user's. However if your camera has, and I am sure it has a Firewire cable (Plug marked with windmill marker) then you do not need a driver, just the cable to fit your camera to the Firewire port (Marked with windmill) on your PC. Your cable will be available from Sony, and Maplin Electrical, PC World and good camera shops at around £14. Good luck, from David
You may not be useing a firewire cable, note a USB cable connection will not download movies, the firewire will cost around £10 from Maplins, Currys, PC World type shops okay, good luck with the movie making.
You need to purchase a video editing software program. If you have a usb or dv port on your computer you will need a firewire card on your computer or a spare usb port.
Pinnacle Studio will work with Vista. Once the software is installed and the camera is tuned on, A dialog box will appear asking to run Pinnacle Studio. Go into capture mode to copy the video to your hard drive.
Windows doesn't allow you to save to your PC. You need to get a hold of your third party program such as Pinnacle Studio to capture video to your hard drive.
In the early days of Windows XP they released Windows MoviedMaker in 2002. That program was discontinued a year or two later probably to satisify anti trust issues but it never had the ability to capture video as well.
