USB cann't make your video transfer. You can do it with a fireware cable only (other name - "i Link"). You have to buy it (4x4 type). I hope your laptop has a fireware port. USB will help you only with your still images, and about Sony software - forget it for your video capturing. Just for your stills. Browse the net (yahoo, google...) and download a free WinDV software. Easy to use and very fast capturing program.
