I'm trying to load my tapes onto my PC using Picture Package but
I keep getting an error:

I plug my camcorder into the USB port turn on the recorder, push BURN VCD, select disk and enter VCD - it says confirming connection then the hardware Wizard starts installing Sony Digital Imaging Video and then "BEEP" ERROR - Check the connected device!!!!!! I've tried over and over again even installed USB drivers and re-installed Picture Package!

Please can someone advise me!

Should I try using another Software Program???
Should I try another cable?
Is there any other drivers I need to install?

Buy a Firewire card for your PC and use Firewire aka i.Link aka IEEE-1394 connection and Windows Movie Maker software.

The easier thing to do is to buy a standalone DVD recorder with a Firewire port. Don't even need a computer.
