Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV250 Digital Camcorder
I had to get a Firewire cable to make this cam work with Vista. I was told Firewire is faster (?) and much better video quality because it is made for loads of data. I can't tell any much of difference from USB, but it does work with Firewire. So, basically try a Firewire cable.

The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available
for Windows Vista OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer
videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer
videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows Vista Operating System.
follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection
IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.
NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.
NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards
may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK
ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will
be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
It should now be possible to copy the video using
the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured
You can also use Windows movie maker with i.LINK connection
