I have been using a Micro mv Sony DCR-IP220E for the past one year and everything seem to be fine. Lately I had problems with using the camera as a webcam with yahoo messanger. Yahoo people made me delete the messanger folder in the program files and then download it again. tried that but it still didnt work. Any way now the problem is my computer fails to recognise my camera when i connect it with a uSB cable like i used to.Tried my camera at a friends computer with Windows Xp and it didnt have any problems communicating with the computer. i called up the sony people and they told me Sony driver for this model is built-in in the Windows XP and they dont have a separate driver which i could use. They think I have deleted some vital component from the windows ------Dont know what?. Am stuck right now.
Should I reload my operating system?Will that solve the problem?
Is there any way I can troubleshoot Windows XP to get back to my original status.
Any suggestions are welcome
