This is USB or Firewire ? I use the Sony DR500LX on USB with XP and it just works without any special driver.

Presumably your other USB devices are working normally.

Maybe a firmware upgrade for the Sony. For that you'll probably have to dismantle the case and plug the drive into the disk connectors of a motherboard (of a desktop computer).

I agree with fihart usb ports may not be working have you checked the device manager to see if there are any unknown devices? or yellow triangles?
control panel/system/device manager
try a windows update and choose custom.
