As far as I've been able to figure the answer is no... Sadly. I bought a DCR-SR40 from e-bay thinking I had a good deal, but missed the face there was no docking station with it, I've tried for a long time to look for a way around that and I have not found one yet, I've had this cam for like 2 or 3 years now. I looked into buying the station from Sony, but it's at some ungodly price.
If you find anything else post on here and let me know, that'd be awesome!

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in connecting the Camcorder to the Computer. Please follow the below steps carefully and check if you're getting the USB Select Screen on the LCD screen.
  1. Connect the Camcorder to the Computer.
  2. Power OFF the Camcorder and switch ON after 10 seconds.
  3. Check the LCD screen to see the USB Select screen.
If the issue persists, please disconnect the Camcorder from Computer. Reset it to default settings and then connect it again.
Perform Reset by following steps:

1. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD panel of the camcorder. 2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds. 3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Also try connecting to a different USB port on the Computer.
Thanks for understanding. Please get back to me with the exact Operating System that you're using if you require further assistance.

Please make sure of the Model #
Try transfering it using the A/V cables and capture it using any recording Software. (The Computer must have A/V input ports. i.e. A/V Capture card)
If you transfer it by USB, date and time won't be displayed.
