Re: tony hawk helmet cam
Try opening the battery door and then holding the camera button while windows detects it. You can let it go when it says found mass storage device. The camera will be under Mass Storage Device in my computer.

FireWire connection to
computer keeps getting dropped. Check with manufacturer to make sure you have
the latest driver and firmware updates for your camera and computer. Always
turn the camera's power on before making a FireWire connection. Disconnect the
FireWire cable before turning the camera off. Use the camera's AC adapter when
making FireWire connections. Try a different FireWire cable and try connecting
the camera to a different computer. FireWire cables and ports sometimes fail.
there are 2 memory cards. 1 is SDHC, that won't work. It is not backward conpatible with legacy(old) products. You need a card that is SD only. Micro card with adapter that comes with the card is fine. I had the same problem and this fixed mine.
The software is not available for free download. However, you can skip that by following method :-
Ok so all you have to do is open the battery door so it wont turn on
and then hold the camera record button on the top until I say so. Plug
it into your comp and then wait. it should say found mass storage
device. Then you will see it under my computer. You can just drag and
drp copy and paste the vids and play them with windows media player.
(you can let go of the botten when windos detects it.)
If you're using windows XP, the camera will be automatically identified.
Anyhow, try the following:
1. Check the cable for any possible defects.
2. Switch off the computer.
3. Connect the cable to both the camcorder and the firewire card.
4. Switch on the computer.
5. Switch on the camcorder.
If the cable and the firewire card are both okay then it is possible
that the camcorder firewire interface is damaged.
The USB drive for Sony CAM you can download from Sony web but the USB will not allow you to transfer video from your CAM only for memory stick
However if you have firewire input on your Laptop, have you? normaly if you have firewire input on your laptop as soon as you connect your CAM it will detect automatic either with windown movies maker or with Nero
Sometime the firewire from CAM defect I repaired a few of them with this problem
Can you conect this CAM to another computer or try different cable ?
Or tell me exactly what input you have on your laptop such firewire input, PCMCIA slot

my computer recognises handycam when i connect via usb. but iam not able to connect via ieee1374 cable.in im ycom,devicemanager, there is no imaging device when i connect via iee1374 cable.do i need some drivers or in need to make some changes in cam settings.my comp is amd athlon 64 bit, 700mb ram, dvd ram drive,my 1374 port is with via chipset.
as far as the camera not being recognized when using firewire, you have to use a genuine, original Sony i-link/firewire cable.
for the longest time i couldn't figure out what was wrong with the camera. i tried two different cables and two different computers. finally i took it to a sony service center and had them check it out. when i went to pickup the camera they said there was no problem. i didn't believe them and asked to talk to the technician that worked on the camera.
I told him to show me it worked and was recognized. He did indeed, but using a sony cable. when i gave him my cable to try, it didn't work. luckily they were nice enough to let me go without paying the $80 minimum charge for any work, including the diagnostic "plugging in sony cable" check.
I then bought an overpriced sony firewire cable for $25 and everything works. Damn sony's proprietary **** (all the sony people i related this story to blamed the bad quality of the cables i had been using)
