Windows 7: Camcorder Not Loading Driver after SP1

Camcorder Not Loading Driver after SP1


I have Windows 7 x64 Pro.

Well I have been going fine with my Sony DCR -PD170 firewired to my PC. I plug it in and she pops up asking me if I want to the whole or part of the video and so on.

Then I let Windows Update load the SP1 service pack and she will not load. So I go to my laptop that is Windows 7 HP x64 that also went to SP1 and she works!

So I look at her drivers and the are "msdv.sys" & "ksthunk.sys". I try copying them to the same local in the desktop and no good. I try other folders like windows, Sys32/drivers/ and so on but to no avail. I even direct it to them on my desktop.

Talk to me guys!

I got it. I had Unibrain drivers because my Sandisk firewire reader liked them but in Windows 7 SP2 things are different. I uninstalled them and she took off.
