Question about Sony Handycam HDR-XR520V Flash Media AVC Camcorder
Can you see the camcorder as an extra drive? If you can, you can probably open it up to the DCIM folder and manually copy or move the pics and videos to a folder on your computer. If your new computer is running Windows 7, there may be an incompatibility issue, or some other conflict that will be hard to reconcile, without concerted effort and a lot of time.
The PMB utility may be corrupt, or the hard drive could have a bad sector, it's hard to say but entirely possible.
I would just work around it, if you can, and use the drive folder in Computer to transfer the files to a folder, if that works.
You might check with Sony for a patch if there is some incompatability with the program and your new computer, here's their support site:
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.
