How can I get my old Sony digital camcorder to upload onto my new Windows 7 laptop?

I have recently bought a new laptop with Windows 7, and I want to upload digital movie footage from my old Sony Handycam DCR-TRV140E PAL. When I plugged it in to the USB port, Windows couldn't find the driver for it.

"Sony driver page for this camcorder says for Vista and Win7:

The drivers needed to connect your
Sony camcorder to a computer and
transfer files are already included in
the operating system.

If that's not the case, is your Windows 7 64-bits? This could explain the problem.
You might try to see if the camcorder is recognized in XP Mode."
