Sony DCR-TRV18 driver

by savvy simon / January 30, 2006 10:18 AM PST

Can't locate the CD that came with my Sony camcorder DCR-TRV18. Seems like every other driver is out there but the one I need. Message box tells me that 'capture device is not recognized'. Any suggestions as to where I might locate a driver? Much thanks...

Connect with firewire. No driver needed.

That's how I use such things.

Thanks for the feedback. A friend had also suggested that a driver probably wasn't necessary with a firewire connection but I'm still getting an error message for some reason. I'm not wanting to suspect my digifire 7.1 card because it's fairly new. Any other ideas?
