Windows 7: Device Connectivity Issue

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 I think!)
Device Connectivity Issue

Firsty, apologies if this has been posted before, but I am losing my mind so hope you friendly folks can help!

I recently purchased a HP desktop running window 7 home premium. Very happy with computer except it will not recognice my Sony DCR-HC22e camcorder.

I tried connecting it via USB no luck so bought a PCI adpter card with firewire port, installed the drivers for that. Still no luck.

I next searched the net and discovered I might need to roll back the driver to the legacy one. This I tried with still no luck.

I have checked it is compatible. I have contacted Sony who have been no help what so ever and I am now going nuts. It really shouldn't be this hard to plug in a DV camcorder and edit my family movies and all I can find is people saying roll back to the legacy driver. Help!!

BTW at one point the system for a brief second did recognise the camcorder, no idea how or whybut it has not happened since!

Here is some info that might help:
Connecting Sony Handycam to Windows Vista Via USB

What stood out was the line where it says the driver must be installed in administrative mode and in XP compatibility mode.
