DCR-TRV19 transfer on Windows7

I just upgraded to a Windows 7 computer and can't get it to recognize my Sony DCR-TRV19 handycam for transferring video. (I have an i.link cord.) I searched the Sony website and found no driver was available for this. Is there any way to deal with this issue? Are all my videos now useless in terms of transferring and editing on my computer?

Re: DCR-TRV19 transfer on Windows7

same issue for me. Win7 64bit. Really don't want to go back to XP.
Hey SONY, it can't be that big a deal to get a driver out there. Sony's web site says the driver is included in Win7. If so what version of Win7 is Sony using?

Re: DCR-TRV19 transfer on Windows7

If the last download available for your camera is USBDRVEN.EXE
(I checked, it is ) then I may be able to help.
Since this file doesn't install on Windows 7, I installed the drivers
on Windows XP, found which files were necessary for the camera
to install ( 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.

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

Re: DCR-TRV19 transfer on Windows7

Jim, thanks for the effort but it did not work for me. I have Windows 7 - 64 bits, perhaps you have the 32 bit version?

When I follow your instructions and try to indicate to Windows the driver you provide, it answers that the device is not compatible with Windows 7 - 64 bits and refuses to install.

I've seen several answers about this issue in Windows 7 compatibility forum that recommend to buy a Firewire card. For example, here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/Sear ... lse&auth=1

I'll try the Firewire option for Windows 7 -64 bits and post my results here.

Yes, it only works with 32 bit Win 7. Sony never made a Win XP 64 bit USB driver as far as I've been able to find out, so there's no easy fix for a USB connection.

Re: DCR-TRV19 transfer on Windows7

Finally found an answer to the 64 bit problem.

According to this page

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... 2be86f6ce0

if your computer processor supports virtual machines

(go down to TrekDozers second post for all the particulars)

and you're using Windows 7 professional 64 bit or Ultimate 64
than you can download Windows Virtual machine and install
Windows Virtual XP ( which is 32 bit no matter if your machine is 32 or 64 bit) and connect your USB through virtual XP.

I have tried this using Windows 7 professional 32 bit connecting
through Windows Virtual XP and it works perfectly, so this has a better than even chance of working.

VIrtual Machine do not support firewire, so this does not help for transfering DV video

Windows 7 doesn't seem to recognize usb that I have found. 32/64 both tested and working on the firewire 1394 if you install xp driver with admin and xp compatabilty settings or use "install with suggested options" that pops up after failed install.  While the image mixer software doesn't work either, you can find open source ( like blender ) or buy new that will let you import from the camera.

Re: DCR-TRV19 transfer on Windows7 -- Windows 10 Update

The Windows 10 Camera and Movie programs seem not to recognize this classic piece of equipment through the Firewire connection (even though Win10 does).  I downloaded PlayMemories Home from Sony, added the module to capture videos, and _that_ works.
