Thank you for reading my report. I needed to download a movie that I have created ready for editing using a Sony Camcorder, so I decided to use Windows Movie Maker. However, when I attempted to download a "collection" into the file, the USB port into which I plugged the cord hooked up to the camcorder did not show up as an available resource for "collections". After maneuvering through help files, I came to the conclusion that I did not have the proper "driver" installed. I also purchased the camera without a manufacturer installation disk. Where would I find this "driver"? How do I download the video onto Windows Movie Maker so that I may edit it? Please help...

Thanks In Advance,
:tazz: Gared ;)

Uhh... I assume that resolved your problem but i thought i would just throw in one little note for you and others, it helps to make sure that the usb slot you plug into not only has its drivers in system folder, but that its hooked up into the motherboard... for some reason one set of my usb ports arent hooked up... i dont know how it occured but its somethignh to keep in mind when other options dont quite seem to work :tazz:
