Vista Prem 64B does not see my HD camera

I recently purchased a Sony Z5U HD camera and tried connecting it to my
Vista Premium 64 bit notebook. Windows does not "bong" and recognize
anything is connected. If I plug in an older camera, it works fine as it
should, so I know the firewire connection is working correctly. Also, I
plug in the same new camera to an XP tower, and it works great. I
contacted Sony and they said Microsoft did not add 64 bit codecs for HDV
cameras in Vista 64 and I should downgrade the OS to 32 bit, which
sounds extreme. I've googled for 64 bit codecs, and all I can find
relates to playing a variety of video file types in Windows Media
Player, which sounds CLOSE, but not specific enough that I know it would
fix my problem. Are there any codecs I can install to allow my HDV
camera to be recognized by my Vista Home Premium 64 bit OS?

Re: Vista Prem 64B does not see my HD camera

I doubt this is a codec problem. Sounds more like a driver problem. Sony
just want to cover up their inability to provide a correct driver. Try
on a USB port and look in Computer whether you can see the thing. Then
just double click on it and copy the file. Or take the card out (if
there is a card) and stick it into the card reader and copy the file.
For processing you may still need the proper codec, but that is another
story. As an alternative, you can convert the file to e.g..wmv with
Format Factory ( 'Format Factory - Free media file format converter'
(http://www.formatoz.com/) ).
