I have a Sony Handycam DCR-TRV22 and I want to upload video to my computer. There are no drivers for Windows 7, but I do have the CD with XP drivers and have installed the driver in Windows XP Mode (Virtual PC). I'm trying to get the camera to connect via Windows XP Mode, but can't get the computer to recognize it when I plug it in to a USB port.

You may need to make it available to the virtual machine - look for the USB dropdown menu in XP mode:

I am running Win 7 64bit

The device does not show up in the USB dropdown.

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.

I would suggest trying to install it on another machine with XP.  You have to determine whether the the problem is with Win7 XP mode or with the HandyCam itself.  Also, have you tested the USB port with another device to see if it is working?

All so be sure to turn on USB Streaming in the cameras menu.

Thanks. It helps to read the instructions!

Turns out that I needed to turn on USB Streaming on the camera! After plugging it in Windows 7 tried to install the driver, but couldn't (no surprise, since there is no driver for Win 7). Then I was able to select the unidentified usb from the drop down menu in Win XP Mode and it installed the drivers. After installing the software I was able to capture the video. To get the sound I had to select usb audio from the settings menu.
