Hi, I ran multiple tries, checks, driver identification for ensuring that my Sony Handycam DCR TRV-38 is recognized by streaming media like Windows Encoder. This was a cake walk with my earlier Dell System on Windows XP.
Inf Driver Windows 10. My latest laptop i.e. Dell V3000 series (OS - Windows 10) is not recognizing the handycam in streaming mode. But if I shift to photo-mode, the data-card is readable. But at no point in time does my device manager or streaming media software shows the Sony handycam credentials as recognized. Please help as my main objective of buying new laptop was to work on streaming media using Windows-10.
At this point, the objective of buying the laptop is lost. Hi Giridhar, Thanks for contacting the Microsoft Community. I understand that the Sony Handycam DCR TRV-38 is not recognizing in streaming mode in Windows 10. I suggest you to refer the below link on Support for Handycam® Video Camera and then refer the section Announcements (Windows 10 information) Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance on Windows 10, we’ll be glad to assist you. Thank you Anup.
I went through the links and also through the Sony Community site. Bottom line, this handycam is not supported at this point of time. I would have appreciated an input whether we can expect the compatible drivers anytime in the future or I should simply forget either my handycam or the Laptop with Windows 10 OS.
