The Sony installer for Windows XP
(unpacked with USBDRVEN) will not
execute with Windows 7. I Installed
the USB driver on Windows XP, copied
the driver files SONYPVU1.inf and
SONYPVU1.sys and uploaded them here.
1) Download the two files and place them in a folder on you desktop or wherever you might want to save them.
2) Plug your USB cord into your
MVC-FD97 ( or any camera that uses
the USBDRVEN installer ) and computer,
and turn on the camera.
3) After Windows 7 says it can't find drivers for the camera, open the device manager and right click on
Sony DSC (which should have an exclamation after it) and click
Update Driver Software.
4) Choose "browse for driver software"
and choose the folder with the downloaded files and click

DriverGuide.com - Using DriverGuide's Installer
DriverGuide's installer software (Windows only) simplifies the driver installation process. It safely downloads and verifies your driver and then assists in the installation of it.
You may notice that the file size of the installer software is much smaller than the file size of your actual driver. The reason is that first the installer setup file is downloaded, and then the installer software does the work of fetching your driver from our fastest download server.
The installer setup file has been certified safe by leading-class virus and malware scanners.
Sometimes anti-virus software can report false positives. If this happens to you, we encourage you to submit the file you download to VirusTotal (a free, independent service which identifies malicious content) where you will see dozens of other anti-virus scanners report the file is perfectly safe.
The installer setup file may include a purely optional advertising offer which you are free to decline. We only work with trusted advertising partners.
Note: Windows only. Mobile, Mac OS and Linux users can choose other download options by deselecting the installer checkbox below the download button.
