I have a Sony Handycam PC105E PAL. It can transfer video by USB or Firewire. I cannot do firewire as my laptop does not have a firewire port. I have just purchased the laptop and am trying to transfer video via USB but it will not load the driver as I am using Vista, I have searched to Sony website and it says that the driver should be installed already with Vista. I cant find it. I can transfer photo's from the memory stick using their software but that is all. Has anyone any ideas.
I have 2 VCR tapes full of a visit to New Zealand 5 years ago, since then I have learned to edit on a PC. I have began to transfer from the VCR to digital tape, I have connected my sony handycam DCR-HC42E and copied about 30 minutes,with no problems, after a break I went back to record more,but now keep getting the message that it cannot record due to copyright material, as far as I now I have not made any changes between the previous recording, any help would be appreciated.
I sorted the problem I had to alter the A/V D/V out setting in the camcoder and it is working fine, I recently changed editing software to Serif Movieplus 5, from Pure Motion Edit Studio, and I am happy with the change.......thanks
