I cannot seem to upload video from my sony handycam model DCR-HC36. My home operating system is Windows Vista basic 32 bit. I've tried downloading things but it never seems to locate the needed...


You should not need additional drivers if you have Windows Movie Maker on your machine, it's standard kit for Vista.
Connect with a firewire cable and open WMM and capture from the tape. Firewire is also known as iLink or IEEE1394a.

How can I get Windows 7 Movie Maker to recognise input from my Sony DCR TRV18E Handycam?


On page 230 of the user manual, it describes how to transfer movies from the camera to a computer using an i.Link (IEEE 1394) cable. You will need the 4 pin i.Link cable and an IEEE 1394 connector on your computer in order to do this. You cannot use the USB cable to transfer the video from this camcorder -- you can only transfer still images using the USB cable.
You will have to buy this i.Link cable and (if you don't have a IEEE 1394 port on your computer) a IEEE 1394 adapter card for you desktop computer. If your laptop computer doesn't have a IEEE 1394 adapter, then you're pretty much out of luck.
Once you have the i.Link and 1394 issues resolved, then Movie Maker should then recognize the camera.

How to save and download the video and picture in the pc


So, what did you use firewire or USB? If you want to use SUB you will have to install proper driver, by the way, I wouldn't even try USB, quality is horrible. Best way to capture video is firewire (IEEE1394). You will not need to install any drivers for firewire connection if your PC equipped with firewire card.

TRANSFER TO PC


Hook up camera let windows say find new hardware. FOllow the prompts. Acording to Sony Xp has the driver already unless it is a 64 bit. See Below:
  • The drivers needed to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. With these drivers, you should be able to connect and transfer files to a computer.
    Note: If the your camera or camcorder is not recognized by the computer when connected, you may need an updated driver.
  • Detailed Windows Vista compatibility information is available for Sony Cameras and Camcorders.
  • The Windows Vista Starter edition and Windows XP 64-bit operating systems are not supported.
