This incompatibility between various Sony cameras and Windows Vista (64bit) is now known, and with Board funds can not be solved (see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Details.aspx?type=Hardware&p=Sony% 20DCR-PC120E & v = Sony DCR-PC120E & uid = & pf = 1 & pi = 6 & c = cameras% 20% 26% 20Photo camcorders & sc = & os = 64-bit).
Therefore, it is often another Firewire controller advised (as ExpressCard - Example: http://www.guenstiger.de/gt/main.asp?produkt=877003). However, there is no guarantee that with a different controller then it must go, but it nevertheless is an opportunity. Otherwise, the installation or the 32bit version of Windows XP. Even Windows 7 will not work with this camcorder.
