Camcorder Sony DSR-300 want to burn direct to DVD recorder

Question 1: I have a Sony Digital Camcorder DSR-300 which uses DVCAM tapes. Want to hook up to a DVD recorder and burn DVD directly from image being view in camera? If so, is there a certain type of DVD recorder I should use? Does it need to be a top of the line or any DVD recorder would work? How do I hook it up to the camera? Question 2: Is it possible to setup on the image from the camera to be displayed on another TV in another room? How?

The latest DVD recorders are able to use Firewire I have one from Lite-On that has a firewire input and was very cheap so you dont have to spend a fortune to get quality.

You can connect this directly to a DVD recorder. I suggest using S-Video and the two audio channels.

While recording video i get error message cleaning tape with x mark on it

Try using a head cleaning tape recommended by Sony.
If after two or three passes it does not improve, you should take the camera to a Service Centre for a clean and adjust.

I can't see any image of my tapes on the Sony DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder.

Try playing one of the tapes on another Sony DV/DVCAM device and make sure the tape is OK. Also, try running a cleaning tape through the camera for 8-14 seconds (no longer!) on playback. If this does not remedy the problem, then your camera needs repair.

DSR 11 won't record DV tape to its end

You need to use longer tapes. The DER-11 is a DVCAM deck which when recording, uses a faster tape speed then mini DV. Think of your older VCR's. They had SP, two hours, and EP or SLP, which would be six hours. The SP speed would give a better picture. DVCAM is more like an SP recording except digital and a lot better. More information is laid down on the tape.

You'll have to jump up to the full size DVCAM tapes in order to record the full hour.

Cannot film

  Dear carooooo, You are dealing with tape not film. Your problem might be in your tape.   Try running your tape on record the full length. Keep your lens cap on. Color balance and use new tape that's for your Sony.         jameskeyboar.
