Driver for ZR900 mini DV camera

I've gone through multiple cameras trying to transfer old DV tapes to my computer. This is my last try. The computer (windows 10) does not recognize the camera, and I'm thinking I'm lacking a driver, as the camera works, and I've tried both AV and DV connections. This is my last chance as I've been trying for months now. I've searched online and there's nothing out there. Does anyone out there have the driver?

Thank you all for your help -I found a single AV to double AV connection and it worked great!

Greetings,

You'll want to use the DV terminal on the camera and connect it to a Firewire card on your PC.

This is a good one.  It includes a cable too.

I have a Microsoft Surface, so unfortunately I don't think I can use this solution.

Maybe not this particular solution, but there are similar options for laptops via USB (A or C). Something like a Dazzle capture card.

There are services that will do the transfer for you. See this link for example:

Greetings,

Without a simple way to add a capture card, Bob's (5DIV) suggestion is probably best.  Just pay to have the tapes converted. You'll save both time and money with this route. The dazzle option is ok, but only if you use the S-Video.  The ZR900 does not have this output.  The analog connections won't yield as good of a picture.  DV is preferred.
