Thread: AV/C subunit driver for windows XP (Sony PC101)

  1. #1

    Default AV/C subunit driver for windows XP (Sony PC101)

    My new computer has a IEEE1394 port. That's great, because I have a Sony PC101 camera, with an I-Link port and a cable. I connected the cable and turned on the camera. Got a "new hardware" message. It says a AV/C Subunit was found and opens a driver installation wizard. Ok. Put the cd-rom that came with the camera on the drive, run the installation wizard and... there is no driver in the CD.

    Where do I find and how do I install such a driver? I'm running on Windows XP.

    winxp should have a driver of its own, i believe. perhaps you need sp1, i really don't know. all i know is that the panny i used a few weeks ago worked first time. did you try just letting it search for a driver, without pointing it at the cd?

    yes, I tried it and it didn't find anything

    Theoritcally you should be able to "let windows find the software automatically". Then it's a matter of opening up a video editing app and choosing your new hardware as a source.

    I'm in the exact same boat as you. I'm using WinXP Pro with a NEC Firewire card. My DCR-PC101 is detected and installs everything properly....except for the 'AV/C subunit' driver. I have no idea what this is or where to get it.
