Summary: If you own a new Macbook and dont have firewire, forget it!None of the USB features work on a Mac. Sony never created any drivers for Mac (past OS9) and thesupplied software only works with a system long abandoned. Oh butyou can pay 99 dollars for a newer version!
Summary: It doesn't work. Was delivered by UPS to wrong address. Altogether, it makes me hesitate to buy any other devices on Amazon. I am still waiting to make sure I get a full refund. UPS should be responsible for replacing it.
Summary: I couldn't get my computer to recognize this camcorder when connected via USB cable so I tried calling sony at phone number 239-768-7604 and ended up downloading the same USB file sony.com offers but from another website address, esupport.sony.com.
Summary: I have read the other reviews about the lawsuit, unfortunately, the blank screen is not my problem. After very little use I found that the battery supplied with the camera lasts considerably less than one tape.
