A tape won't eject. Try turning off the camera and then turning it on with the eject button pressed down. Remove all power (including lithium batteries) and leave the camera off for 30 seconds. Then reinstall the batteries and turn the camera on with the eject button held down.

other wise try smacking the device with your hand slowly on its sides and then press the eject buton and check out.
thanks .

Please try to use the camera to record while it is connected to your TV. If the microphone is working, and the TV volume is up, there should be a whistling noise created, called feedback! If this does not happen, then there is some issue with the microphone, or perhaps the "sound mute" facility is switched on. You will need to refer to the manufacturers instructions for details of this. Please re-post if this does not solve your problem.

Hey there mate,

Heres the whole CD From: Extreme Computer

site: www.extremecomputer.net/m50/M50CD.ISO

Download that. It's an .iso file, which is an image for burning to a cd. You can use a free program call ImgBurn to burn it to a disk.
You can get ImgBurn from:


When you have burned the disk, just put it back into the drive and it should work.

Have a nice xmas!

Probably some non-user-serviceable problem.

From the manual:

"Error code E:61:XX
Contact your sony dealer or local authorized sony service facility."

Unfortunately, it's not exactly a trivial process. The basic steps are as follows:

1) connect the camcorder to the computer
2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer
3) optionally, edit the video file
4) upload the file from the computer to youtube.com

1) the camcorder has 4-pin 1394 (also called firewire or i-link) jack, and the computer (if equipped) either has 6-pin 1394 jack or 4-pin 1394 jack (on some notebooks). if your computer doesn't have a 1394 jack, you need to buy a 1394 adapter (eg. pricegrabber.com)

2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer hard drive using editing software or a software utility designed for doing just that. this software may come with the camcorder or the 1394 adapter.

3) optionally, use editing software to take an excerpt from the file, rearrange parts of the video, add titles, etc., and output a new file

4) upload the file to youtube.com. there are some guides on their website as well (eg. youtube.com)

I hope that helps.

Memory stick could be fubar. I have a bad sd card that I can record to and will work. Then a few days later the data is corrupted, and I have to reinstall it / same pattern. Try another stick to verify that it is the stick and not the camera electronics.
