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
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
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
