Maybe a bit of a long shot. But you guys carry most of the answers. Using 2011 I wish to capture a video of a vhs tape recorded on a Sony DCR-IP7E handycam. The digicam was used purely to record from a VCR. To capture it I will require drivers for win7 64bit. I have had a look around the sony support site but cannot find any for this now oldish bit of kit. All the connections to pc are no problem, I was wondering if anybody has in fact already done this.

I fI understand you correctly, you have a Sony digital camcorder.  As such, it has an IEEE (firewire) port.  You can plug that into your computer firewire port and capture as is using  Roxio.  It will recognize the firewire camcorder.

I'm ntot sure why you need drivers?

Thanks for your reply. you're right no drivers required. I normally shoot video using a Canon HFS 200 HD cam straight to a SD card but I can't hook it up to record from a VCR it does not do it so I have discovered that to maintain the original quality of the VHS and it is a simple connection is use a sony cam old technology I know but as my son has one I have highjacked it for this pupose. I have had to install a firewire PCI card to accomadate this. Could have gone through my mac but I want to do it in Roxio.
