I am using an old sony dcr-dvd201 or a dcr-dvd300 camcorder and i am trying to hook it up to my computer via usb and it will not recognize either of them. I am running windows vista ultimate. Is there...

Hi - You have to install the USB driver for Windows BEFORE you attach the camera. If you attach the camera before you install the driver the driver will be broken and not work. If you did attach the camera before the driver installation you will have to remove the driver and then reinstall it then attach the camera via USB. It doesn't make a lot of sense but Sony is very emphatic about these directions.

Hopefully you have the drivers because they don't seem to be available from the Sony support website anymore.

Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Sony handicam

I don't think you can use the unit for individual snapshots but you can take short segments of video then, download to your computer. After you have loaded segments of footage, you can then take individual snapshots from the footage. In a way this is better as you can select from many angles, positions ect.

Sony camcorder - USB mode

the usb mode is usually reserved for removing pictures from memory card through camcorder to computer-using camcorder as web cam-new models can stream lower quality video from camcorder to computer-for a dvd cam use a converter box ie pinnacle movie box to convert analog A/V connections to usb and that will stream the correct way-
