Driver information for Microsoft® Windows Vista® and Windows® XP

  • 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.
  • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows Vista operating system.
  • 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.
So as you can see...the 64 bit OS is NOT supported.  The only luck you are going to have is either go to XP, Vista 32 bit...or see if there is a 3rd party driver someone made on the internet.  Try google....but I would have to say due to the complex nature of the drivers, it is highly unlikely that anyone has made a driver that is compatible.  It just has to do with how the 64 bit OS is made.  There might be a way to use 32 bit drivers, however you might run into some issues with processing and streaming.  To my knowledge of 64 bit systems, they are backwards compatible with 32 bit applications, so you can use wither 32 or 64 bit drivers....the only downside is by using 32 bit on a 64 bit machine, you are going to suffer a little bit of performance loss.  I hope this answers your questions.

    Vista Driver for Sony TRV330


    No driver required. Plug the supplied cable into the computer firewire port and the Sony "i-Link" port on the TRV-330 and turn on the TRV-330 in VCR mode. Works in XP and Vista out of the box.

    Drivers!


    I searched Sony's website and this is what came up with your camera model:

  • 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. Check the Updates tab below to see if any updated driver is available.
  • Starter and 64-bit versions of the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems are not supported

  • Most versions of XP and Vista are not 64-bit but you might be one of the few "unluckies"

    Hope this helps you out a little.
