Please help, I have searched and I can't seem to find any straight answer. I have a Sharp Viewcam z 7 that I am trying to transfer video from to my windows media center pc. I plugged it into the USB and it could not install the hardware. ( I dont have the original disc that it came with). When I went into windows movie maker in capture video it recognizes that the camera is hooked up, however it shows nothing on the screen. I have it playing on the camcorder but for some reason it isn't showing on the computer.
Do I need the software from the camcorder? I looked online and with sharp it says i have to pay for it and they will mail it to me (pretty silly if you ask me, since if i have the camera the software should be free.) or is there another way to import the video? I am really confused and need to have this up by tomorrow night, so if anyone has any advice or ideas at all I would appreciate it immensely! thank you!
