I have a Sony DCR-TRV 250 and a dell laptop running Windows 10. The drivers on the original disk don't appear to work with Win

I want to save/view the videos on the camera to my laptop. USB would be most obvious but I can't get an image. I suspect the 2 systems are not compatible. Probably need the right driver. The original disk that came with the camera doesn't want to do the job.

If you have a way to add a Firewire card (such as a Firewire ExpressCard) to your laptop then that would be the way to go. Of course you would need a legacy firewire driver. If you do not have a slot for a card (usually located on one side of the laptop) then you will need a video capture device. The device would connect to the laptop via a USB port. With a video capture device you could connect the camcorder using either a firewire port (provided the device has one) or using the A/V out cable from the camcorder.

You can't use the USB out on that camcorder to transfer video. The USB port on that model is for viewing pictures only; Sony DCR-TRV250 user manual
