Option 1:

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

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.(An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type ofcable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. TheSony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer hasthe 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pini.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to 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.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

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.

NOTE: 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!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off I would buy a converter that allows you to plug your usb cord into it and then it plugs into an AC outlet. It will charge faster. Second, it sounds like when you PC is trying to recognize the hardware you have plugged into the usb port it isn't finding any software associated with the device and is for some reason restarting. If you received a software disc with your camcorder, try loading it on this PC and see if that fixes the problem.

USB connection will allow still photos ONLY to be capture to a computer. To capture the footage from the tape you will have to connect with a firewire cable, also called iLink or IEEE1394a. Windows Movie Maker will be one program that can capture the footage.

Then the video data files are larger than 100 GB, simple as that. Video uses a lot of GB's, so that doesn't surprise me one bit. 100GB is a tiny amount of storage compared to modern machines, mine has 500 GB's, my Desktop has 1 TB.

Hi,
To transfer video from your camcorder to your computer you will need a firewire cable (IEEE 1394). Only with this cable you will be able to transfer video.

Please note that you will also need a firewire port on your computer. if you don't have one then you can buy a firewire PCI card.

Please see the following link for more info and pictures.

Usually things are color coded but if not you should use the Fire Cable I'm not sure what color it is but Its usually a USB cable. (It might be called "Hard wire") Hope this helped. =)
