Windows 7 and the USBDRVEN.EXE driver

Anybody with an older Windows XP era camera that has switched to Windows 7 has discovered that the USB driver package:


Filename :USBDRVEN.EXE

Version :N/A

Last Modified :03/01/2004

Size :1.52 MB


will not run on Windows 7. I worked around this by installing the
USB drivers in Windows XP and copied the two that are necessary
( sonypvu1.inf and SONYPVU1.SYS ) and installed them
on Windows 7 from Device Manager.


I uploaded these files to http://www.driverguide.com with step
by step instructions. I believe it's still free to join driverguide.

If there's a place at the Forum to upload drivers I'll be happy to
do it.


It works perfectly with my MVC-FD97 ( both memory stick
and floppy drive) If it works for your camera
please post the results here for future reference.

Hi all,

If anybody has downloaded and tried the files at Driverguide, I'd appreciate it if you would go back and review them (say whether they worked or not ). It gives me and the others at Driverguide feedback as to whether the download is worthwhile. Thanks.

Thank you for your post - yes, although Sony doesn't support the install of third party drivers it's very helpful if anyone can report any successful resolutions, both here and at the third party's site.

Hi,

 

I was having trouble finding the sys and inf files. Could you post them or email them to me?
