    Looks like MSN thinks the computer is already in use. Do you have the Firewire and USB cables conneted to your PC at the same time? If so try disconnecting the Firewire cable and start again.

    Remember to have you TRV17 in USB mode. Incidentally with this camersa you adjust the settings on the camera rather than using MSN.

    Hope that helps.
