I've been having the very same problem. I have search and tried many things, such as the fixes from the Windows page, nothing has worked. Then I rang on the phone, my support centre which I found on the Sony website for my area, they put me onto a tech, who guided me through to a webpage which delt with my model -asia.com/support/download/281881/product/dcr-hc40e/modelfirstSo the answer is, you have to upgrade to PMB (Picture Motion Browser), I had Sony Picture Package ver 1.0, older versions don't work any more no matter how many drivers you get updated or how many window bugs fixes you get.It is a big file, you can email sony to get instructions on getting a smaller one just for your modelSony know about this problem very well, so ring yr sony bloke on the phone if my instructions aren't helping. Let me know how you go. email@example.com

I purchased a sony handycam Model No. DCR-TRV285E in the year 2005. I used to transfer tape data into CD via USB cable. But the quality of the picture was never satisfactory. I recently came to know that the picture quality can be maintained if tape data is transfered through DV cable (I-Link Cable) using the Firewire port. I purchased the Firewire card along with 4 pin to 4 pin i-link cable, install it along with sony picture package software and camera driver. But my camera was not detected by PC. 2b1af7f3a8
