From the Sony support page for this camera, it has the following:

  • Drivers:
    • The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
  • Not Supported:
    • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
    • The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.

I have Sony DCR-TRV285E Digital-8 Digital Camcorder Driver for win.xp but i have the program for win.7


The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available for Windows 7 OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows 7 Operating System.


Please follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection (IEEE 1394).


IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.

NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.

  1. Connect an i.LINK cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.


i.LINK Cable.

i.LINK port.

  1. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer.

NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.

  1. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  2. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  5. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  6. Begin importing the video with the capture software.

It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.

Lost my disc for installition digital 8 tvr250 need help


if you lost the disc, there is no available download for the supplied software from the sony support site. you may need to purchase that from parts (18004887669) part# 307894306 $29.95+shipping and taxes. now if your using win xp, you can just download the driver from this site:
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=DCRTRV250&upd_id=1452&os_id=7

and proceed with installation.onve installed and pc rebooted, you can use windows moviemaker for your video capturing software.no need to pay for the software. if unfortunately you have win vista and win7, forget it the supplied software (pixela imagemixer 1.5) is not compatible.so it's just a waste of money. better to go this route, connect the camcorder to your computer using dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. of course you would need an ieee1394 card installed in your computer.so if you have it its should be a plug-and-play connection and you can use windows moviemaker for your video capturing application. hope this helps.thanks:)

Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7


win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)
