    I have the same problem! My computer won't read my camera, I've installed the software and plugged in the camera, tried different USB cords but that's not the problem, and when I try to go to "easy" mode on the camera it says there is a USB attached but still the computer doesn't read it.

I have Vista, in order to get it to recognize my handycam I had to download the driver for XP from . Sony than before installing the driver. I right clicked on the driver installer, clicked on compatibility, checked the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and selected "Windows Xp (service Pack 2)" and it worked just fine. Hope this helps everyone.

You have Vista, don't you.. That´s the problem. Microsoft neglected Sony making Vista. It doesn't support practically no Sony stuff.
