  • Windows Vista Starter edition is not supported.
  • The USB streaming feature is not supported with 64-bit Windows Vista operating systems.

  • The drivers required to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.
    In some instances, the camera or camcorder may not be recognized by the computer when connected. In this case, check to see if there is an updated driver available for your model.

    If the above link doesn't work, you can check to see if there is an updated driver at this address:

    Hope this has helped you.
