USB drivers for Vista

I'm wondering if anyone out there has been able to find a USB driver for PCs running Vista. I'd like to copy my tapes to a movie editing software to make some DVDs.

    Hej, jag har samma problem, väldigt irriterande! Panasonic borde väl fixa drivrutiner för alla Windows kan man tycka.

Panasonic only lists XP and older drivers and no mention of Vista. We have the same problem with a couple of our older cameras (HP) but they were up front and told us they weren?t going to develop drivers for older consumer items. You might want to consider just keeping a PC running XP (or setting up dual boot) for your camera until drivers are released or you give up waiting. Not the answer you wanted but I think its probably the most practical and gets you running now.

Same - I had to go do a dual boot and load XP again to run the camera.... no easy solutions here.

You do not need to have another xp pc or dual boot, you can run the driver in a compatibility mode! and would solve the issue

Looking for SONY DCR-HC35E drivers


I don't think it is drivers you need, if you are hoping to download videos to a computer (but see below).

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (Sony call this i.Link) connection. Some mini-DV and D8 cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can ONLY download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other. My camera came with the correct lead.

There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading at THIS LINK You will need to select Windows as the operating system, then Digital8 as the camera type, then select the type of connection. As you will see, the USB option warns that it won't work with many cameras, and you are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire). However, you can download USB drivers from a link in the USB connection section.

I am trying to connect my Sony DCR-TRV10E to my home computer via ilink-USB cable, but my computer does not recognize the Camcorder.... I guess this is due to missing drivers for Windows 7. Can anyone help...


USB and i.Link cables are not the same thing. What Sony call i.Link everyone else calls Firewire, DV or IEEE1394, and it is a different standard from USB with different connectors.

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. If you are trying to use a USB cable for video download, then it won't work for this camera. The driver is not the problem, this model is not on the Sony list of cameras that will download video over USB.

Whether this will work with Windows 7, I am not sure. My Mini-DV camera, using a Firewire cable, didn't need any camera driver loaded to the computer, just the movie editor that came with Windows XP.

Can't Install Video Codex? Why Not?


This sounds like a device-driver problem. The camcorder will never be recognized by your PC until you get the right driver and then the 'Mass Storage' msg will go away.
Vista is too new for the D363. Check the Samsung website for a Vista driver for USB.
