    Thanks but that does not help me. I do not have the MPB, nor the original disk when i first bought this camera. I called sony and they want to charge me for another MPB. Which is ridiculous. I have their camera, and i do not have their MPB in order to convert or burn. I have been looking on the web and i cannot find someone who has a copy of the MPB so i can download it. Its really aggravating...Can someone please help.

    I downloaded the file, and the minute i started to run it, it told me that there was no file of PMB on my PC. Even though i downloaded the PMB installer, it actually was a Updater that i was installing. This is driving me insane. Can you please help. I need any version of PMB. From there i can download the Updater.

    Please help.

    If i download it for VISTA, do you think it will work?

    IF you think about it, when buying a device from SONY, they do NOT have two CDS, one for XP and one for Vista..? Am i right? Please let me know.....

    With all due respect, did you follow the links? If you have XP, here is the download page:

    MPB is at the bottom of the page. There are 2 versions. Pick.

    These are large files, so I hope you have broadband.

    Feel free to change your rating. Thanks for Trying doesn't help me at all.

    Do you have Vista or XP?

    That's what I was afraid of. I found it for Vista on the Pacific Asian Sony Site.

    It sure looks like Sony has locked this down good. I'll keep looking.

    No guaratee, but here is a possible download site:

    You will need to pick a server and enter a security code.

    Not sure if they will require registration either.

    I would not try the Vista software.

    You DO have to register. What have you got to lose?
