The drivers for this camera are already included in both the XP and Vista operating systems. Are you using one of these operating systems?

According to the Sony website this camera uses the Sony I.Link cable which is just a standard Firewire (also called DV or 1394 cable). It should just be a matter of plugging this cable into the camera and into a Firewire port on you computer and turning on the camera.

You cannot transfer video with the included USB cable and Sony does not include the Firewire cable.

Here's a link that will give you some troubleshooting tips if you're still having problems:

and here's the link that says the drivers are already in the OS:

Lastly, I really appreciate it when you let everybody know if this helps. This way others might be able to solve their problem from your post.

Installing software for my Sony Handycam DCR-HC96

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 of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.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 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 not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk 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.

Or you can purchase the software disk from this link:

NOTE: Since the original supplied software is not available for free download now.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sony handycam and pc transfer

Sony CCD-TRV218E is analog PAL camcorder and can not be hooked with PC directly.
Computer (PC) requires digital format files to store on HDD and your camcorder has no digital file format to directly transfer in to computer.

You can hook your camcorder with DVD recorder to burn a DVD. Now you have digital files on DVD and can be transferred in PC.

Mini dv to apc

I'm working out the same problem! From the looks of things, it can be done with the i.LINK cable (which is optional, of course). I've got Vista on my new computer, which is incompatible with Sony's USB driver anyway, but it looks like I can transfer video successfully using an i.LINK cable and Microsoft® Windows Movie Maker (came with Vista). I just need to find the cable I need, as it's "optional" and didn't come with my camcorder. BTW, here's where I found my info:
