Why won’t my Sony Handycam record video?

I not able to capture video properly from my Sony handycam. I used Ulead software through FireWire. Even PowerDirector 6 hangs when capturing. I enabled USB Stream On in the cam options also. Capturing starts but hangs. My OS is Windows 7.

    1)Shutdown your pc.
    2)Connect your video camera, and turn it on.
    3)Then start up your computer with the camera already on.

    So which model is your sony handycam? maybe it does not support higher than windows xp, if you are on windows 7 try the compatibility mode to xp?

    Hello, what kind of firewire cable are you using? 6 or 4 pin.  I believe SONY recommends using 4 pin firewire cable....preferably their i-link cables...
