Customer Question

Hello......I have a Sony Camcorder DCR-SR47. I have a hard copy of the user manual but have lost the CD-ROM that came with the camera.
I am trying to download the videos from the camera onto my computer. The instructions say to download the PMB that is on the disc that came with the recorder. However, because I don't have the disc, how can get this software?
I am not technically savvy so can you pls give me detailed instructions on how to get this PMB software (from a safe site), to install it, and then to transfer my videos from the camcorder to my computer.
This request is urgent as the hard drive on the camera is full and I need it to record an even this weekend.
Please send me this information at my email address:***@******.***.
Thank you in advance for you immediate attention to this request.

Click on download and then download and run that should be the software you are looking for if not let me know because then Sony will need to be contacted to have them send the disk to you.
