sony DCR-PC350E driver for Vista

by karenmonksnz / October 22, 2007 1:30 PM PDT

I am having trouble with my Sony Video Camera. It just won't seem to talk to Windows Movie Maker on my Vista Machine.
Is there a new driver needed for Vista?

Please help!

How are you connecting the camera?

Sorry! Should have said - I am using Firewire. When I plug it in it recognises there is something plugging in, but Windows Movie Maker keeps saying that it can't find a camera.

Am I getting the steps right?
1 - Turn Camera on to Edit Mode
2 - Plug in Firewire from Camera to PC
3 - Start Windows Movie Maker

There could be a couple of reasons...

In reply to: Firewire

Personally, I would plug everything in before turning the camcorder on.

1 - Plug in Firewire from Camera to PC
2 - Turn Camera on to Edit Mode
3 - Start Windows Movie Maker

The other possible issue is the version of Vista you are running and whether the driver got installed (or even came with) the installaton.

But for video editing, I'm not a Windows person. Maybe someone else has some ideas.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
