You should have Software with your camcorder, plus you will need a Firewire Port on the PC to connect the camera.

Or a third party program like Pinnacle Studio.

PS - Sorry, ignore the bit above about Firewire, just noticed your camera uses the USB connection.

I have had a pretty thorough search for Vista compatible driver - I am afraid there does not appear to be a Vista driver available anywhere, for this camcorder!

You could hope that someone else might have more luck - but don't hold your breath! Sorry!

What happens if you connect the camera via USB, then switch it on?

Just wondering if you might see it in My Computer!

If you plug it in Vista might install it's own drivers to run it.

Sony do offer an upgrade but it appears you need the i.Link cable to download from tape: click here

I have just had a look at the connections available on your camcorder - apparently it does have Firewire, so if you have a Firewire port on your pc you could connect it that way, then use a third party software such as Pinnacle Studio. If you do not have built-in Firewire on your PC, it is easy to fit a PCI Firewire card with Firewire ports.

You could just use Windows movie maker if you have firewire to capture and do basic editing
