    You shouldn't need a driver for XP.

    Your camcorder records directly to DVD.
    When you connect ueing USB, the camcorder will show up as an external drive. Then you can simply copy the files (.vob) to your hard drive in your PC.
    But after that is where your problem begins: edting your movie. You cannot just import the footage into moviemaker. An option is to convert it to DV-AVI using this tutorial:

    Then you can import into Moviemaker.
