I have and HDR-HC7 that I have been using happily for a couple years now. I have always used the PMB in windows XP.
I made the switch to Win7 which has been great. I haven't been back to XP since I installed. However, I am having a problem with Sony PMB to where I cannot import any video. When I go to select the import from "tape" on the import button, the software does nothing.
The HDR-HC7 shows up on the device manager. The LCD of the camera indicate the iLINK (1394 IEEE connection) as on.
I tried to import via Vegas Pro and it says this device can't not be open - make sure the power is on and the device is not in use.
I have upgraded the PMB to 4.2, contacted their support and I am really fresh out of ideas. I can't any process that shows the device in use or any software that may be using the application.
Any thoughts on where to go from here?
