    Hi all, i am trying to connect my camcorder to my laptop its running vista, i have tried installing the usb drivers then connecting the cam but its says drivers not installed correctly, all i want to do is capture the video on the tape and transfer it to my laptop, is this the best way or will it be easyer via dv or do i need drivers for this aswell?

    many thanks

    I tried to do this with my sony camcorder via usb and it wouldnt work turned out that my one would only work with the small firewire lead or as sony call it ilink. Picked up a lead from my local computer store for £6 and I dont know why sony gave a usb lead with the camcorder and no firewire/ilink. Oh and make sure your laptop and camcorder have the right connections for firewire.

    I used the software cd that I got with the camcorder but you can just use windows movie maker thats built into vista to add the video to the computer then edit them.
