First check to see if the Ieee 1934 port (iLink) is enabled in the computer ...in case the camera is not seen at all.. for that ..you have to go to BIOS (for pc) by pressing del on start for pc..and F2 for laptop ...(F10 for HP computers) ..and once in there ..choose the feature called optimal factory defaults ..confirm the choice ..and save the changes by pressing F10 and enter ..
If this was the only issue ..the IEEE port should be active now..and things working ..
Remember that usually for Sony the drivers are in the windows already ..but if you have a driver disk that came with the camera ..it is best to insert and run it anyway ..
To check that the port is ok ...go to device manager by right click on My computer ..than properties../hardware/device manager ..
with the camera on ...look for it into the list ...if you do not see it ..click right on the computer ..and choose scan for new hardware ..this should bring it in sight ...even if it has no driver .....in which case..will be unknown device in a ieee port ..and all you need is to insert the driver and install it ..
For mac..you probably need the driver for sure ..cause the Fire wire port on mac will not see it without ..
In the end ..from my knowledge ..if you are connecting it by a fire wire port you should not need a driver for Sony ..but ..even if you activate the port ..you might need a fire wire driver for the Fire-wire card itself..if itself ..so if it is a on board port ..look on the motherboard's driver CD for the port's driver ..

Here is what someone said in justanswers.com:
Connect a firewire cable to the camcorder's DV port and the Mac's firewire port.
They also added that the camera cannot be recognized through the usb port.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

I need to download the sony DV DSR-PD 150 P driver software


The camera doesn't need drivers, but it does need an application that will take DV input. If you have a Mac iMovie will do that, provided you have the FireWire cable for it.

Sony DSR-11 Will Not Recognize Timecode


I think you may have misconfigured something because the problem is not in your DSR-11 try connecting it to a monitor and you will see the time stamp and picture as proof of what I am saying. The problem I think is that your Mac is not processing the time stamp correctly. Try this link first it helped me: Remember follow the instructions ezactly: http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/35/856108

PD150 battery problems


Sony has had a few large scale recalls of Lithium Ion batteries in the past 3-4 years or so. I have a feeling that NPF960s may have been involved. Best idea would be to contact an authorised Sony service centre and quiz them about it. You may score a free replacement battery out of it, even if yours is out of warranty.
