View Full Version : P2 drivers will not load?

I've tried multiple times to get the P2 drivers for the 200 to install on our Adrenaline, running on hp and XP. Whenever I get to the prompt to choose which device to add drivers for, I select the HVX200, and click install. The camera is connected via USB at the time, it's set to USB device, and it's powered up and in VCR/MCR mode. When I click Install, the window just pops right back up. There's no way to get the drivers to install...I just have to cancel out of it.

I looked on the completely inadequate support website (and re-read the install manual), and the only thing I thought might be a problem was the required Microsoft ActiveX control. I downloaded it, but still no luck installing.

Has anyone else had this problem?

The problem is VCR/MCR mode. The USB port doesn't exist in that mode.

You have to hold down the mode button and go into PC/DUB mode. That's the mode the USB port exists in.

thanks! I'd held it down, but it wouldn't go into PC mode. I just hadn't been holding it long enough. Got it now.
