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.

Vista may not support it but you can try some things.

Are you installing from the SONY-supplied "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, or from a "generic" Vista DVD-ROM?

The SONY disks _should_ have the correct drivers for your notebook computer.

Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camcarder to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA 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. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

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.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you look on Pg 96 of the owners manual, Sony only provides you with a storage device driver not an imaging device driver. Using your camcorder as an imaging device is software dependent only on particular software programs. Since Sony only talks about the software that comes with the camcorder, that is the only one Sony will support.

If you are using another vendors software, you can check with them to see if it will work as an imaging device.

The only other option you have is to get a hold of a video capture card and play it back into the computer that way using the av cables. The video capture card will be the imaging device.

Some programs such as Pinnacle Studio will allow you to import the DVD directly into the hard drive as a storage device.

It is designed to work as an external storage device, which it is and Windows can't change that.

I am unable to connect my Panasonic PV GS150 handycam and Vista business edition running laptop using a USB cable. Do I need driver S/W?


You will need to install the USB driver from your software(disc) to your vista.

and make sure the computer is recognizing your camera, check under control panel and device managers list if your product is listed under imaging devices, but chances are you might be having compatibility issues since it doesnt have an updater for Vista, hope this help. pls dont forget to rate. Thanks!!

Sony Ericsson media manager software


What OS are you running? Does your system use USB 1.1 or USB 2.0? Try powering off your w910, wait a few seconds to make sure it completely cycles off, then connect your phone to your PC. It should turn on in USB (ie. 'Mass Storage') mode. If Windows attempts to Autoplay the device, Cancel the dialog. If Windows attempts to install any drivers for the device (or Vista prompts you to scan the device), Cancel the dialog(s). If you go into 'My Computer', is your phone recognized here (as a USB Mass Storage Device)? If not, the app is not going to recognize it either. Try disconnecting any other USB devices or memory card readers.
