Re: windows 8 does not recognize camcorder

Hi Andy,


Please provide us the model# of the Camcorder. However, drivers are not required for connecting most of the Camcorders to Windows 8 Computer. 


Thank you for your post.

Re: windows 8 does not recognize camcorder

I also am having trouble with my Sony Camcorder and Windows 8. I can download pictures to my laptop but I cannot download videos. The message that kicks back is the computer is not compatible with the disc. I have a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T*.
Is there a resolve to this?
