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.

My laptop (HP with Vista) does not recognize my dcr-sx40 camcoder. USB mode on camera doesn't start, says "preparing". Please help


Yes I know, Sony are getting 1000's of complaints about the Hard-Drive cameras and the DVD, the problem is that Windows Vista & Win 7 have no camera drivers, they are working on it honest.

Hello mogly20,

The amp probably won't know if it's you or the homeless guy, so try smashing a glass bottle on it like he did. If that doesn't work, I'd recommend you locate another homeless guy and buy another amp.

Hope this helps.

My 2002 Hyundai Elantra Gt (2.0L)engine runs rough during low speed acceleration, but runs fine at highway speeds. I have changed fuel filter and spark plugs, but after engine is warm it still misfires...


The Hyundai online shop manual and my newly arrived Hyundai shop manual kept pointing to the coil as a possible problem. While preparing to check coil continuity I discovered the pigtail connected to the bottom of one of the coils was loose and the contacts were burned. This is the coil that supplies spark to plugs 1 & 4, the same ones that kept showing up each time the check engine light illuminated. After cleaning the contacts and making sure the pigtail was securely attached to the base of the coil I have had no further problems.

Hi guys i am seeking your help right now.two days ago the upper part of my jailbreak iphone stop responding when i touch it.i restore and i jailbreak it again and it is still not responding i reset by hold...


Restore your phone and take it back to the apple store for service. There is nothing that a fresh jailbreak does that will cause any part of your screen to stop responding. Sadly, It sounds like your phone may be defective.

Sony TRV38 HandyCam - Blank LCD problem


i think i have a solution, still experimentinh on it. i have a drv model of sony handycam. it was showing a blank screen for quite few days. Sony service centre asked for 16,000 rupees to replace major parts.i declined and kept experimenting at home. i played the video and kept accessing the memory stick through lens and lcd screen simultaneously and switch off and on giving time gaps. day 1- it was still blank. day 2- ther was flickering when i switched on the cam. but i kept repeating this process of playinf video and turn it off wen it was getting very hot. day 3- camera started showing images very wide. day 4- it started capturing images properly. Voila! but the images were dark and grainy. this is the current status now. i hope it becums better. i wish this works for your camcorders too. All the best!
