It;s undoubtably a driver issue. try installing & running in admin mode set for XP SP 2, this may help. Else I am afraid you may be stuck.

I am trying to download video from my Sony DCR hc22e camcorder to my Medion computor that only has USB ports (no Firewire Connection ports). Sony have suggested a firewire USB adaptor but Maplins and a...


The Sony DCR-HC20 Mini-DV is a 2004 model and has both USB and Firewire connectivity. You only need the USB since your computer has USB. The original camcorder was supplied with a proper USB cable having a standard computer connector at one end and a mini usb connector at the camcorder end.

You have to install software/drivers on the computer for your operating system (typically supplied by Sony on a CD with the camcorder) and connect the camcorder to the computer with the USB cable.

You also need DirectX9.0b installed on the computer which should already be there with Windows XP, Vista etc.

See the manual here:

If you need more help just ask.

Audio problem. computer speakers are working beeps etc, but radio and video no sound


In Windows XP, go to:

Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds & Audio Devices -> Audio
Ensure that your sound card, and not a USB device, is selected for audio output as the default device.

In Windows Vista/7:

Start -> Control Panel -> Sound
Ensure that 'speakers' is selected as the default device.

Alternatively, if the beeps are coming from the computer case itself, please clarify as such with a follow up response.

Hi there.
Try this:
Right-click the "My computer" icon > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > expand "USB controllers" > right-click "USB root hub" > Properties > Power management > uncheck the box for "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

My brother just got a new Dell computer and he has an old Lexmark Z24 (i believe) and he has Windows Vista..The connector is not usb..Can one purchase a new cord with usb connector to fit old printer to...


Try Maplins, they sell an adapter to convert from parallel to usb. Also check first whether Vista drivers are available for whichever model printer he has.

Problem printing from Dell Inspiron 1720 with Vista Home Premium to Epson Stylus Colour 1160 using Nikkai USB to Parallel Convertor. Cable supposed to be plug and play. Any pointers?


You pretty much said it when you mentioned "Other than buying the cable in the first place" I have never successfully used a USB to parallel converter cable on any system. My suggestion, asisde from getting a true USB printer, is a parallel port card

Need drivers for nikkai usb to serial converter rs232


I purchased the Nikkai USB to RS232 adapter from Maplin and could not get the device working. (Maplin staff not much help!) The lead uses the Prolific PL-2303 device but Prolific do not supply the drivers to end users.
However I found the drivers that appear to work at:

http://www.cooldrives.com/wividrforprc.html

This then recognises the lead as a COM port. So far everything seems to work OK.
(Null modem check and basic 9600 data transfer.)

I hope that helps everybody.
