Vista Ultimate is supported per website, but only for the memory stick.

  • The drivers needed to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. With these drivers, you should be able to connect and transfer files to a computer.
    Note: If the your camera or camcorder is not recognized by the computer when connected, you may need an updated driver.
  • Detailed Windows Vista compatibility information is available for Sony Cameras and Camcorders.
  • The Windows Vista Starter edition and Windows XP 64-bit operating systems are not supported.

    If your system came with Vista pre-installed it is likely there are no XP or eariler drivers available for it, in which case you will have to stick with Vista or Windows 7.

    Win Vista Ult does not support driver for Sony video camera...

    Hi there
    There is no support for this camera on ANY version of Vista at the moment, however Sony are asking you to be patient because they are working on one.
    If you have access to a XP computer i suggest you use that until Sony releases one. Keep checking this page>>>>

    Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
