    You haven't told us how you're trying to get the footage from the miniDV onto the PC. Are you using Vegas (or more accurately Vidcap which fires up when you try to capture footage)? Are you using firewire?

    I'm using the wire that came with the camera through the USB port.I use Vegas to upload.I see see it upload and i watch the video and when its finished I hit the "done" button and it sends an error message thats all a bunch of codes and then the window closes.It then asks if I want to send it to microsoft.

    Also I could download the video from the DV recorder to Windows movie maker but with no sound but I coudn't get the gopro to work.Thats why I got Vegas.I have XP and WMM doesn't have MP4 unless I have windows 7.

    You need to use firewire to capture MiniDV footage. USB won't cope.
