Sorry to just jump in but I just bought a Sony DVD Handicam (dcr dvd 203) and
I am connecting through USB 2.0 (would use firewire if this camera had it).
Movie Maker will not detect the camera however even after it was installed
with the Found New Hardware. I can use the software that came with the camera
to get the footage on the Hard Drive but when I import video (its mpg) it
only comes up as audio.

You need to use the editing app which came with it. This is getting to be an
increasing large problem as more and more people buy dvd cams and expect to
use them just like tape cams. It just isn't so I'm afraid. To use MM, you'll
need to convert the mpegs to avi files, have alook at www.papajohn.org and
see his bits on dvd cams.
