Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder
I'm unable to install Sony DDX-A1010 USB driver using Vista. Computer does not recognize the Sony camcorder. The Sony USB device does not appear under the folder DVD/CD Rom drives. Is there any solution?
I had this same problem and found a fix. I do not know if how my system was broken fits your case but it could be worth a try. Looking at the user manual to the camcorder, it said to look in the Device Manager to make sure the driver was installed. It is supposed to appear in the DVD/CD-ROM drives. It did appear there, but with a yellow flag next to it. I have also been having a problem with my DVD/CD drive. Its driver has had a yellow flag next to it for quite some time. Then I realized I was getting the same error message on my camcorder as I had gotten with my DVD/CD driver "Hardware not found (Error 41)." (Please excuse if I am misquoting these error messages, now that the problem is fixed, I do not know exactly what they said. So, I am doing this from memory.) So, I did a google search on "dvd/cd code 41." It took me to a Microsoft website http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314060. Apparently, if you install iTunes, Nero, Roxio Creator, or Zune, it can mess up your registry. This Microsoft website has a "Microsoft Fix it" icon you can click on, and it straightens everything out (it might mess up your installation of iTunes, Nero, Roxio or Zune though). Now, not only does my camcorder work, but my DVD/CD drive is fixed too.
