Re: Sony Handycam DCR-HC19-E connecting to Vista

Same has happened to me... but when u close the window after it has told u it cant download, it pops up a new window where it stands that Windows thinks the download didnt work as it should, and if u want to download it with "default settings" or something.. tell them that u want to, and then it works! at least it worked for me =)
