    The answer is NOT to use your USB connection. Go buy a firewire card for about 15 and you will not believe the difference!

    Even if your USB was working, the quality and speed of download is absolutely terrible. I know because I had your problem!

    I hope that this helps.

    Turn on the camera and plug in the firewire cable. When you're done, disconnect the cable, then turn off the camera.

    If I understand correctly, you are connecting your camera with a firewire cable (A.K.A. IEEE or iLink cable) but it is not being recognised by the computer.

    First steps in diagnosing the problem are to see what the weak link is so:
    • Try a different Firewire cable

    • Try a different Camera

    • Try a different Firewire card

    • Try a different Computer

    hopefully that will tell you where the problem is, then you can search for a solution to it.

    You could also try downloading the latest driver from Sony. I seem to recall I did this too.

    I had a problem like this, sony miniDV, firewire, windows XP pro. I hooked everything up, but no camera sensed. Then, i went to the hardware manager in the system folder (right click on 'my computer', properties, system, hardware manager), then delete the firewire port, then scan for new hardware, voila!, cam is now recognized and all transfers worked perfectly.

    Can't explain it, but it appears to be a windows problem.
