Re: drivers!

I searched Sony's website and this is what came up with your camera model:

  • 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.
    Note: If the your camera or camcorder is not recognized by the computer when connected, you may need an updated driver. Check the Updates tab below to see if any updated driver is available.
  • Starter and 64-bit versions of the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems are not supported

  • Most versions of XP and Vista are not 64-bit but you might be one of the few "unluckies"

    Hope this helps you out a little.

    You can get the drivers from Sony's website IF you have the model number AND the serial number AND the code on the original CD. If you don't, then they won't help you. Talk about ridiculous amounts of authentication!
