Typically, Windows 7 can automatically download recommended drivers and detailed information for all your hardware and devices, including the NX5.

If you cannot see a high-resolution icon for the NX5 in the Devices and Printers window in Control Panel, you should do one of the following steps:

Click to open Windows Update; in the left pane, click Check for updates, and then wait while Windows looks for the driver for your NX5.

If Windows can’t find information about your NX5 in Device Stage (i.e. when you connect the camera to your PC), your computer might not be connected to the Internet, or the location where that information is stored is busy and the connection takes long time.

In either case, check whether your PC is online, wait a few minutes and see if Device Stage is able to find the information, especially if this is the first time you've connected the NX5 to your computer.

Thank You Arkady for the suggestion...

But for your info, not all the device driver simply can installed by Windows Update although it is Windows 7..
I already Update my Windows. But Windows still cannot found "Sony USB Device" Driver..

In this case,,,
I just hope whoever in this forum has Sony NX5 Camcorder can help to sharing the Software CD in this thread. :)

Thank You..

Thank You again Arkady :)

But this is Version 1.1 .... update version for 1.0...

I dont have the 1.0 version...

I already try to install it.. but this version 1.1 software not include the Sony USB Driver... So the installation cannot be complete without the driver to detect Camcoder.

Maybe the driver can only be found in CMU 1.0 version...

Where to find CMU version 1.0??

You do not pay for a particular downloading but for the use of the torrent client and service. After registration (payment), the torrent will allow you to download a particular file (CMU ver. 1.0 or any other software).

Type “Sony Content Management Utility Ver 1 0” in the Search field on the TorrentHound site and see how many torrents it will find.

Ainol:

It might be one of the following problems with the USB connection between your camcorder and computer:

- the computer USB receptacle is damaged;
- the mini-USB connector of your NX5 loosens;
- the USB cable that you use is cracked or broken;
- a high-speed USB 2.0 connection is disabled in your PC.

To work around these problems, try to use another USB receptacle in your PC, check whether your PC supports USB 2.0 signaling rate. Also, get a magnifying glass (preferably with light) and take a thorough look at your camcorder mini-USB port.

Ainol. Have you tried capturing from a USB card reader instead of directly from the camera?

If you got a copy of the CD (where from?) then you got both the drivers and the CMU.

Windows has obviously aquired the camera otherwise there would be no "da dum" or whatever 7 does now.

So, you have the driver, you have the software, the camera connects to the PC, what else is missing here?

I cannot reconcile these two statements:

1. My PC still doesnt detect my NX5

2. Windows are Detect my NX5 when im plugin to USB 2.0 port

Both contained in the same post.

Either it does or it doesn't reckognise the camera, you can't have it both ways.

You keep saying it can't find the driver, what is the exact message, word for word?

Is that really the problem or are you just assuming?

More information required.

Does the camera have the latest firmware? The content management software should still recognize the cards and combine clips.
