  • Think this is the right place for this(I'm sure video camera falls under 'camera' right?) but mods please move it if you have to.

    My cousin has this camera and wants me to take the video thats on it and put it onto his PC. Its uses's tape so I can't just take out a memory card or anything like that. The problem is that his laptop is running Vista 32bit and it won't recognise it. I did a bit of goggling and found that this is a widespread problem(don't think it has the drivers or somthing) He got this camera a few years ago and is thinking about upgrading to to a better video camera but obviously he wants whats on his old camera first. 
    Would it be worth my while trying it on my Windows 7 64-bit laptop or bring it home and trying it on my old XP desktop? Or does anyone else have any other suggestions.
