Files transfer to pc

Hi! i had lent my sony camcorder DCR-SR200 to one of my friends. apparantly he connected it to his pc to download his videos n pics. he did it successfully but eversince it has come back to me, it records new videos but when i tried to connect it to my pc then i got virus alert. i didnt have proper virus protection at that time. so i had to recover my system and the data was lost. but the data stayed in the camcorder and after installing proper antivirus again i tried to download my videos but this time it does not show any folder system that it used to show earlier. as in it used to show separate folders for pics and videos but now it shows nothing except some hidden folders. the thing is that i cant browse through its files. the data stays there as i can see the disk usage is about 17 gb. but no files are shown wherefrom i can download my data. i have even tried to fix errors on this drive using checkdisk function of windows but to no use. please help me as i have some very imp pics n videos stored in my camcorder but cant download them to my pc..

Re: files transfer to pc


I had the same problem, what I did is I executed AVG anti virus software and selected the camcorder drive, I was able to see all the folder names. My camcorder shows as E drive but when I open by double clicking it shows only hidden folder, so I entered in the address as follows E:\MP_ROOT\101PNV01 for videos and E:\DCIM\101MSDCF for photos and I was able copy all my data. Your folders may be different I don't know if there is any other way of knowing your folder names but if you want to download the anti virus software which I used go to link

Hope this helps!

You need "Picture Package" software supplied with Sony camera to transfer video files in to PC. If you have software CD, please install it and connect your camrea with USB port.
If you dont have CD, check following Sony official weblink to download USB Driver, though it will not give you proper control on file transfer procedure yet it do help you to connect camera with PC.
