XDCAM EX1R read failure on Vista 64
on Jan 31, 2011 at 3:27:28 am

I suddenly cannot read or see the XDCAM EX1R on my Vista 64 service pack 2 system. I have a dual boot system...separate drives...where the camera reads fine under Vista 32 using the USB line. However, it suddenly won't read under the 64 bit side. In device manager, I get the yellow exclamation mark with a note which reads it's a "Microsoft WPD File System Volume Driver." (windows\system32\drivers\UMDF\WpdFs.dll and ...drivers\WUDFRd.sys)

Where and how does one find and install the correct drivers for this camera in Vista 64?

WpdFs.dll Windows Portable Device File System Driver
Wudfrd.sys User-mode Driver Framework Reflector.

These are Windows OS files, not drivers from Sony. As near as I can tell there's an issue with Windows Vista 64.

I'd recommend going to Microsoft's site for example
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939210
and
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933607

BTW I'd strongly recommend you update to Windows 7.
Personal bias injections but this is why I like Macs. Alas that should go to the Platform Wars forum. I'll bet you didn't know COW has a Platform Wars forum. http://forums.creativecow.net/platformwars
