Have you tried reading the SD card from the camera?
I just purchased a like-new camera and, even though the listing showed that it had the software and cables, the seller said he didn't have them. Now I have a camcorder that I need to connect to my PC (HP XW4400 Workstation with XP Pro). When I try a mini-USB to USB cable I borrowed from my Sony TRV-350, the PC never sees it.
Any suggestions, folks?
