If the sound is coming out on tv then the video cable has to be replaced. (You did not tell if the sound is coming out on tv)

    are you using the original sony cable? replacement cables mostly are not compatible with sony cause they have different connection.

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.

I have a sony handycam dcr hc36 and I also possess ppackage cd and which has been installed in my hp laptop -window vista when I am connecting my camera to laptop for streaming, there is no response,...

Connect your camera to your PC by means of FireWire cable,that is the solution.


-Stable,trouble free data transfer during video capture.
-Video transferred at its maximum resolution 720*576 pixels or something like that compared to 340*240 via USB transfer.
-100% supported by any video editing program,even the simplest Window Movie Maker.In other words,forget Sony's software - use something else that wouldn't run you.


Of course,those Firewire cable&card might be not very globally available like USB device.But still easy to find and relatively cheap to buy anyway.
