You will need a firewire card in your PC and firewire cable to connect your camera to the PC. you will also need a software like Windows movie maker which can help you to transfer videos from your camera to the PC.

The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!
*I fixed mine (twice) this way*
Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.
The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!
A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!
Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!

OMG, took me forever to find the driver, contacted the support centre who told me I had to pay $25 just to get it on CD
Finally found it by doing a 'round-a-bout' search
navigate to support and downloads then type in "NVMX" and select 'software driver' scroll down the page till you come to NVMX50. Should be two downloads there, one the driver the other the audio update.
After installing this on my new dell pc, it was able to identify the camera and webcam... HOWEVER although I can get webcam to work via messenger, my mic is no longer working??? even after the audio update so go figure??? I use to be able to use the mic on skype before downloading this... what a pain
