This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the Windows 7 Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.The Firewire to USB cable won't work with your camcorder,you will always end up with this error.
Click the link below for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.
Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.
Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .

My PC is not Recognize this Device after Connecting USB cable


Did you download the software or install it from the disc for the camera? You need to do this before it will recognize the camera. Either that or your usb cable is bad.

Camcorder is not recognised by my computer.


If you have the disc that came with the camera install it on the computer. It should then be recognized. If not then click here and it will take you to the website to download the drivers.

Click on where it says software and drivers, then enter just the model of your camera (VL-Z5E). After that it should be all gravy.

Hello,
You must install the software that was shipped with you camcorder. It installs drivers that allow the computer to recognize it.
Install software, Then connect the camcorder. The hardware wizzard will install the drivers for you automatically.

Cannot get Sony Handycam to connect via USB to my laptop


Hi Ken,
I have a Sony Handycam DCR-DVD610 and I had a simular problem today when trying to download videos I took as a test. I downloaded the software, then connected the power cord from the wall to the camera, then the USB cord from the camera to the computer. The software was suppose to automatically open up and recognize that the camera was plugged into the computer, but it didn't. I could not get the videos to download. So I called the Sony company and they were so nice and helpful. The man stayed with me and walked me through entirely on how to do it. You see I didn't finalize the disk. I only had DVD-R discs and I didn't realize that it must be finalized. After we finalized the disc, then I was told to take the disc out of the camera and insert it into the computer disc drive and then he proceeded to show me how to get them downloaded. If you need more step by step instructions, please let me know. Good Luck
Helen

Pinnacle studio should work for this camera. It will be recognized in Windows XP or Vista with the correct data cable plugged into the computer without any additional drivers.

I don't know if Sony has free software available for this machine any more. You can Sony.com and go to the link associated with the country that you bought your camcorder in.

Neither Vista or XP will recognize the miniDVD's from my camcorder.


You have to finalize the disc in the camera before you can see it on your PC.
