Problem with importing videos from sony handycam to computer. Can someone help?

I have a sony handycam. My objective is to import the videos in to the computer (Window XP). I installed the handycam software (Picture Package Menu). I updated the software to the latest version, and also updated Macromedia Flash Player. Both are working fine, and Picture Package Menu is running. THE PROBLEM IS PICTURE PACKAGE MENU ONLY DISPLAY PICTURE, NOT VIDEO, AND SO I CANNOT IMPORT IT IN TO THE COMPUTER. I use USB, because that's what Sony gave me. I understand that people suggested to use Firewire. First, I don't have one- not even the port in the back of my computer suitable for Firewire. Second, I don't want to waste anymore money, gas price is too high already. Why only pictures are displayed? Why not videos. Is it too heavy? What needed to be done, other than using Firewire? In fact I did try to use different computer (labtop), and it uploaded 1.4 GB videos in 15 minutes (good enough for me).
IS IT BECAUSE OF SOME CODEC OR DRIVER PROBLEMS? PLEASE HELP ME!

Which model your handycam is? Are you using one with Flash card or is it minidv? If it's flash card you can try using a card reader, and if it's a minidv, you should use a capture card to transfer the video.

Connecting to computer & importing images from HD of DCR SR 42


Mine does the same thing.After it says "connecting" on the LCD of the camcorder, there is nothing to actually do on the camcorder. With the Sony SR42 software installed (supposed to come with the camcorder on purchase-but maybe you can also find it for free online), the software called Sony Picture Utility (which is part of the big packge of software) opens up automatically and offers to either burn your photos/videos to directly to a compact disc, or to import them onto the computer's harddrive.
That's how it happens for me.I'm not-tech savy or anything. Hope this helps.
