Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder
The USB for my Sony DCR DVD 201is not recognized by my new laptop anymore.
Well lets just hope your new Laptop PC has NOT got win 7 on yes? why? well because no Sony camera drivers are built-in that is why, you are going to have to use Firewire cable to down load like all of us do now, USB wont work.

This problem has largely been answered by one of people posting the problem. Once the disk has been finalised in the camera remove it and insert it in the PC's DVD drive. If it "Autoruns" you will be asked what you want to do. If you have no third party video editing software on your machine select .....using Windows Movie Maker and "Import" the footage into that program. If the disk doesn't "Autorun" start WMM and import from your DVD drive (probably drive "D"). Use WMM's Help to find your way around.

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:
This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).
You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.
Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.
NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.
