Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
There does not seem to be an available driver for that model of camera for Windows 10. However, have you attemped to plus in this camera to the laptop? If so, what happens?
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
I only ask because usually with Windows 10 drivers will load automatically.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
Secondly, is the camera loaded with an SD card? If so, would it be possible for you to remove that card when you're editing videos?

Please review and let me know what you think.

Hi, Unfortunately, the streaming and file format, for this camera that was available through the the Windows XP operating system (and could be manipulated in Vista, depending on your configuration) has been totally eliminated in the Windows 7 - 10 systems. There are no fixes or drivers for direct transfer. The only way around this is to use the AV cable, for your camera in combination with an EZCAP device to transfer to the computer by USB and convert your video and audio. Please see the attached photos for the configuration. The EZCAP device is available at the link below: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Video-Camcorders-Satellite-playstation3-software/dp/B003D8VQIG If you require additional information, please use the Reply to Expert Tab to contact me.
