Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR42 Camcorder
I had kept the 'Preparing...' for a day & it still is the same! Anyslution guys? Sony people just tell you to get the updated PMB/Utility from their website but it is still the same....
I had this same problem. Make sure you have the correct cable. I was using another USB cable that fit perfectly, but it was not the correct one and just said "Preparing..." forever. Changed the cable and bingo - connected.

Once you connect the camera to the computer using USB cable and switch it ON, it shows you some options. I was chosing the option "computer" and it was showing preparing for ages. Later I selected, DISC BURN option and bingo, the camera appeared as a drive in my computers. Solution is to chose DISC BURN option.

Using a different USB cable solved my problems. I searched for a day. Thank you Francetich.
