My Sony Handycam DCR-30 is not compatible with my windows 7, what can I do?

I'm assuming you have tried connecting it to your computer with the proper connector. It said something like no drivers for this. Then installing it (with CD or something) anyways and it said not compatible or something.

First, Windows 7 professional and Windows 7 Ultimate have a "Windows XP mode". So if you have one of those versions you could try this. Otherwise skip to the next part. It may work without it but if it doesn't, just use Windows XP mode. Which you can download here. The Microsoft Windows 7 compatability site also says the DCR-HC-30 is compatible.

Second, are you sure it is a "DCR-30?" I did a quick search on the Sony website, and the only thing I could find was a "DCR-HC30." There might be a "DCR-30" but you can try the DCR-HC30 drivers. Which does support Windows 7. It shouldn't mess up your computer installing this driver because it has to be the right hardware, otherwise it wouldn't be in use.

I hope this helps with your problem.

Hi, you can transfer the files to your computer, you just can't use the camera's VideoCam editing software. However, you can still view the movies and photos taken by the camera using standard Windows programs.

Did you install the HDMI Drivers for BOTH PC & Camera? Without those it will never work. I don't think that there will be any firewire drivers for it? Anyway thats what you need to do.

I need dirver Windows Vista 64 bits for Handycam TRV-740

This was taken from Sony's Website....
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.

Problems installing JVC USB drivers

The JVC USB driver was written before introduction of the Windows XP system. This warning is displayed with other manufacturer’s digital cameras, also, and is not strictly a JVC phenomenon. In order to use the USB interface between the camera and your computer, select the “CONTINUE anyway” option provided in this warning display. To JVC’s knowledge, there are no negative effects to using JVC driver with Windows XP.
