    plug it in to your comp, then reboot....... if you have XP, it should recognize there being new hardware, if you dont have XP, you shoulda told us

    btw, this seems to me like it really is a software problem,not a hardware one
    great FTP site for awesome quality video clips
    yeah, you have to sign up, but its worth it

    Sony site has USB driver updates, perhaps that is what you need.

    The software you listed above, it that the factory software or alternate software you are trying?


    Sony® Click To DVD™ Software seems to be mentioned on the Sony site, could that be what you need?

    The best &#39;user friendly&#39; software to use is Pinnacle, it&#39;s the simplest program to use for importing video, you will want a firewire card in the long run for rapid video import.

    You&#39;ll also require approximately 10gb of HD space for every hour of DV you import, then of course you can convert it to any format you want.

    Firewire = cheap + fast
