    Default Sony dcr-trv480e pal

    Would appreciate any advice on where I can obtain a copy/download of the CD software for the above Digital Video Camcorder.
    Following reinstalling my PC Windows XP I need to reinstall the camcorder software but alas, I believe the original was accidentally dumped along with some redundant CD ROMS. The supplying retailer is no longer operating so I am a bit stuck.

    Many thanks

    Other than Sony's website I can't think of anywhere else to download the software. I presume you are talking about drivers? You can also download trials of video editing software from all the companies listed here on the forum. Also do a search on Google for freeware editors as they may offer a bit more than what Windows Movie Maker does.

    TBH I have never installed any of the software you get with cameras. Your cam is digital 8, I assume it has a f wire port? Just plug and go - souldnt need any software.

    Many thanks Mark W, advice keeps cost down. About to purchase Pinnacle Moviebox Ultimate to edit old analogue tapes from my old analogue hi8 and more recently some digital video. Thought I might have needed SONY software, but yes machine does have Firewire so will try everything out soon.

    Best wishes

    Many thanks but will try Mark W's (below) suggestion that the SONY camera, having a Firewire, may make the software uneccessary.

    Thanks again
