I have a Sony CDR-PC9e camcorder I bought new in 2001. Great camera, now I want to transfer my video tapes to DVD via my laptop. I am quite knowledgable with PC's and can copy however I am experiencing some problems;
I have lost the original cables and CD that came with the camera. However I have a mini USB cable which does fit and connects to my laptop but nothing happens.
I have tracked down a couple of USB drivers and downloaded/installed but still nothing happens.
Do I need a 'firewire' cable for the additional socket on the camera?
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
