Is the USB Streaming feature compatible with the Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems?

    The USB Streaming feature of this camcorder is not supported with the Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 operating systems. To transfer video from the camcorder to a computer with one of these operating systems, use an i.LINK® cable or Audio/Video (A/V) cable along with compatible video capture software like Windows Movie Maker.


    • Information about using the Windows Movie Maker software is available from the Microsoft Web site at
    • Although the USB Streaming function cannot be used to transfer video from the cassette tape in the camcorder, if your camcorder uses Memory Stick® media to record still images, it is still possible to use the USB connection to transfer the still images recorded on Memory Stick media to the computer.
