Have tons of tapes, can't find the camera after a move!??? How do we view the tapes or burn them to DVD's now?


What we did was to buy a secondhand camera of the same type at little cost, transfer the old films with our DVD recorder (if the recorder has a hard drive it makes editing a cinch), and then sell the camera back to someone who wanted to do the same!

Hi, I have a Sony Handycam that I have enjoyed using for several years. My problem is, I bought some new dvd rw to record a family event and the camera would not recognize them. Can I download software...


you may find some new softwere for it but dont count on it working,,,,it may kill off the camera,,,if i were you i would stick to the dvd's that will work in it,,,the new one's you got are bigger (they hold more) than the camera can record to and its softwere is out of date for the biger dvd's
if you reprogram the camera with any new softwere the camera may then not work at all? so copy the camera's softwere first so you can reload it back on if it packs up!

I put a disc in and it says disc error


Please do not get me going on this massive DVD disk failing again my friend, not many cameras with DVD ever did work, the fail rates are over 70% when you decide to shoot films on DVD's you need 8mm Video film tapes to be sure you record when you make films.

I did not finalise my mindvd, insert in my pc now


Sorry but 1000's of others get this problem with these stupid DVD type cameras, only one way still of filming your movies if you want good safe future working films is to buy the Digital 8 tape camera, it is recorded for like then, safe & sound, DVD cameras are silly gimmicks and go wrong like Hard-drives do often.

It is required to finalize the recording in the Camcorder in order to play the recording in any device like DVD player or in Computer.

First finalize the recording in the Camcorder and then try playing the DVD in any DVD player.

After finalizing the DVD, a DVD player will be able to play the disk.

Sony dvd handycam finalize problem


If your discs are rewritable, you could try putting your discs in your computer. Try opening the folders and try to open all the files. Some of the files may be your videos. If it opens your video player and plays your videos, wait until it plays everything to make sure that all your data were recorded in the disc. Copy everything in your computer and remove your disc. Try playing it again and if it works, then it's already ok. When you are planning to use it again, make sure that you format everything in the disc.
