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

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

ThisCamcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA OperatingSystem. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. Thei.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is ablack D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be usedwill depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorderwill have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pini.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 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 notrequired to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to theComputer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony totransfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using thei.LINK/Firewire interface.

Applicable for Windows XP Operating System:

Ifyou are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to installthe USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Softwaredisk with the Computer.

Check this link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
