Missing drivers for the camcorder. XP doesn't know what to do with your USB camcorder.
But even then most find the video to be subpar which the standard answer is to use FIREWIRE.
Bottomline? Use firewire.
I have an old camera...hoping to transfer material to my computer but my PC (Gateway laptop - new - windows xp) isn't recognizing the camera. Using USB cable. Any thoughts? Thanks
