I just recently picked up a used DCR-TRV27. Much to my chagrin, the software CD that came with it contains drivers up to and including Windows XP. Vista and Windows 7 users are out of luck. I also have Windows 7 64 bit installed. Sony says they did not produce a Vista/Windows 7 driver for this camcorder. I purchased a Dazzle DVC-107 USB video capture device which plugs into the USB port on my laptop and then you will need either an SVIDEO interface cable or the a/v cable that came with the CC to interface to the Dazzle device. This will enable analog video capture but at least it works. The Dazzle software works the same as Windows Movie Maker but is much more sophisticated. Pretty cool in my opinion. Hope this information is useful.

Hi Scorpius18,
I too was frustrated trying to transfer tapes from my DCR-TVR27 to my 64 bit Windows 7 HP for storage and editing. After days of searching to no avail I thought I'd give it one last try today. Somehow I stumbled on this post on the Microsoft Community blog that answers and solves our problem. It took maybe 10 minutes to install and alter the Movie Maker program and it works perfectly. After program installation and connecting the camera by firewire, my computer immediately installed the correct driver and took over control of the transfer process. I'm copying my second tape as I type this and can't really believe how easy it was. Just follow 'DeeSleezy's' post below.
Enjoy and if you get the opportunity, please pass it on.

Hello everyone, this "trick" just works for me on Win7. Just copy/paste in Windows Movie Maker 2.6 folder the executable MOVIEMK.EXE extracted from Windows XP bellow:
