SOny DCR HC30 Camcorder not recognized in vista

I am not able to download Sony DCR HC30 tape video into Sony VAIO laptop as the windows vista does not recognize the camcorder through firewire or USB. I tried through movie maker, picture motion browser, adobe premier etc. Can someone help as I have lot of tapes to be downloaded.

When you connect the cam using the firewire cable do you get the ping and
found new hardware balloon?
If not I suspect a poor or faulty connection, check this page out and
beg/steal/borrow three working items - that you've seen working and test
your components

Thanks for the help and the article is wonderful. I tried all the options discussed in the article. The device manager is not showing any problems and the driver is updated. But still the camcorder is not recognized. I am not getting the ping when I connect the device through firewire. Is there any special thing for vista to be looked into as the article deals with XP.

I baught Sony Vaio only for the reason of easily connecting to sony products. Anyway, please help me to solve the issue once again

Regards,
Jawa

ilink cable?

Perhaps you need an iLink cable? I just purchased a 4 to 6 pin (and 4 to 4 pin for my laptop) on ebay for about $3 each from China (includes shipping).

(Even from Sony... Importing/Exporting movies from/to a tape by connecting the camcorder to the computer via i.LINKŪ cable.)

Also, here are Sony's drivers for the camera

maybe this usb driver works, or just for memory card downloads
