Summary: Any $1500 camera that destroys itself because you forgot to turn it off before plugging in a "hot swappable" iLink cable is a total piece of s*** in my opinion. I am so thoroughly disgusted right now I don't think I'll ever buy another Sony product, ever!
Summary: Straight to the point - bought one would not connect to computer, I went out and bought another computer, still would not connect. Tried everything poss in the camcorder forums - loads of people are having same problem. In my opinion, DONT BOTHER - GO OUT AND GET ONE THAT WILL CONNECT.
