I have a HDR-HC3 and I had the same problem too... This model has ALOT of problems with transferring files and I need to pay $90 to get it repaired... Try it on a Mac, if iMovie cant pick it up it means you have a firewire problem.

I searched under HDR-HC3 firewire driver and got the above link.

It says the following:

Hi..

The problem was a missing MSDV.SYS file.

Thanks

Actually, on the Sony site it says that no additional drivers are required to connect the camera in Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

But, the user of this camera and firewire noted that he was having trouble convincing windows of this.

Connection to PC does not work

Hello, yes I am aware of that problem. Basically one should change the so called VC441 Board. Luckily PAL version has almost twice cheaper VC441 board then the US version. For my account about 300 Euro. So, in order to repair the camcorder above mentioned board has to be replaced. If you need more info please advice.
