1Edit step

Normally, if you connect your video camera to your computer, it will say that it cannot find the driver, or that it is unknown. When you look online, on the Sony website, there is no simple driver for USB Streaming your cassette, and even if you have the program that comes with this camera, it will not let you stream the video through USB.

2Edit step

You will need to download a driver that is not specifically for the Sony 8 Digital Handycam DCR-TRV 280 with USB streaming, but for another version of a Sony camera. Click on the link at the bottom of the article titled Driver.

3Edit step

Once you have downloaded the driver, you have to double click to open the file. A pop up will ask you where do you want to extract the files. Choose a simple location, such as your desktop and click Ok.

4Edit step

After the files are extracted, double click on the folder which is titled Sony_usb. Double click on the Setup file, as shown in the picture. It will ask for administrative access, and select Yes.

5Edit step

It will take you through the process. Don t have your camera connected at this time.

6Edit step

Now, select the option to restart your computer. Let it restart, and then when you re ready, connect your camera to the computer through the USB cable. Make sure that the USB streaming option is enabled in the menu of your camcorder and that the tape is inserted. To set the USB option to on, go to: Menu Setup Menu USB Stream On.

7Edit step

The computer will say that it is installing drivers/software. Click on the pop up to view the process. If you have installed the driver correctly, the pop up should look like this: All should be checked green and it will say Sony digital imaging video in the middle.

8Edit step

In order to transfer the video, you will need a program that will capture it and save it onto your computer. For this wiki-how, I will be showing the example with Sony Vegas 11 Pro video editing software. You can get a free trial for 30 days at the Sony software website. The link will be below, titled Sony 11 Pro Trial.

9Edit step

Open Sony Vegas 11 Pro, and click: File Capture Video. Another window will pop open.

10Edit step

This window is where you can capture the video. When you start playing on your camcorder, it will show up on the screen. To start capturing, click Capture Video. To stop, click on the small square. When you are done with the clip, it will show you different options, such as whether you want to add the clip to the project media.

11Edit step

The video is now saved to your computer.


We don t have any information about Sony HandyCam s compatibility with windows 7. I would suggest you to download old Sony cam driver/software from Sony s website and install it in compatibility mode.

Steps to run the Program Compatibility troubleshooter:

1. Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under Programs, click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows.

2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

Not sure if you re still monitoring this thread, but I have the answer for you.  After a lot of searching myself, I found that all you need to do is simply enable the USB streaming on your camcorder.  I just did it and now my Win7 machine recognizes my

camcorder the same one you have.  Do this by: press menu button, scroll down to Setup Menu, select USB Stream and turn it on.  That simple.

Thanks for the suggestion, but my camcorder s I assume that s what you meant USB Stream has been set to on from the outset.  I just checked it again and the video play still does not register, either automatically, or

in Windows Movie Maker.  

If you had success, or if I otherwise got something wrong, please walk me through the steps you took.

Hello All -  new to video transfer and editing. I have a rather old Sony HandyCam Digital8 DCR-TRV350 and am trying to transfer video via the USB port onto my laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64. I am getting a message saying the driver is

not found but various sites say the driver should be part of the Windows7 OS. I have also seen that the USB does not work but have also seen that it does. Any advice for the newbie would be greatly appreciated..

I have a Sony DCR-TRV33 HandyCam. I just bought a new laptop  with Windows 7 Home Premium 64  to replace the gigantic, snail s pace, fossil I was dragging around. I decided to upgrade my old Dell 5150 Tower while I was at it. I have now spent two full days

and nights trying to get my computers to recognize my camera. I have been thru every routine and procedure that all of you have suggested or tried. YET, the problem has not been solved. I ve got a couple more resources Electrical engineer childhood friend,

electrical engineer brother, computer systems tech / analyst nephew, and a computer tech / repair shop owner family friend that I m gonna try. After a few beers and some sleep.

Everything was fine until Windows 7 reared it s ugly headand I like Windows 7and that s coming from a die hard computer hater. The most frustrating AND the most ridiculous fact in all of this is we re talking about Sony

and Microsoft, two of the biggest names in the electronics, software, tech-device-gadget-thing industry. They can t get a

computer to install a video camera. I don t believe for a second this was an oversight. It s malicious and borders on racketeering. The FEDs need to do some poking around and start asking questions.

I think the answer lies in the cables and connectors, not the driver s.  It might even involve another piece of hardwaremade by Sony and installed using Microsoft software I m sure. USBout the door, DV/Firewirenext in line or HDMI if that is even

an option, I don t know. Then we try and try again. If I can just trick one of the components

I m stumped, but that doesn t take much when it comes to computers. If my rag-tag group of professionals come up with an answer, I will be sure to pass it on. Good Luck Everyone.
