I have had a Sony Handycam for about two years now. The usb and importing software worked fine for a while.
I moved to Korea in September, however, and have since that time been able to transfer any video from the camera to the computer.
When I try and stream it I get audio, but either no video, or a screen that has no reconginzable picture - just big, random colored blocks.
I don't have my software discs with me so i can't reinstall the software and try that. Any suggestions?

After camera is on dock and usb is plugged in, turn on the camera. You can open the door to see the status of the connection as an option. This should do it. If the camera is off, nothing will happen when you run the imagemixer software

If you look on Pg 96 of the owners manual, Sony only provides you with a storage device driver not an imaging device driver. Using your camcorder as an imaging device is software dependent only on particular software programs. Since Sony only talks about the software that comes with the camcorder, that is the only one Sony will support.
If you are using another vendors software, you can check with them to see if it will work as an imaging device.
The only other option you have is to get a hold of a video capture card and play it back into the computer that way using the av cables. The video capture card will be the imaging device.
Some programs such as Pinnacle Studio will allow you to import the DVD directly into the hard drive as a storage device.
It is designed to work as an external storage device, which it is and Windows can't change that.
let me tell you about importing movie in PC problem. set camera unit on Player mode and select USB straming ON position in camera menu. picture-package will start imorting movie files.
2nd thing is that file size will be realy big. dont know the reason but its fact.
