Sony DCR-SR82 - Analog to Digital Conversion ??

I purchased the SR82 specifically because it says it has an analog to digital converter. I read online how people can convert their analog 8mm tapes to digital files via a digital camcorder to then be saved on thier computer for editing/storage. So I hooked up my old Sony analog 8mm camera to my new SR82 via a Sony VMC-15FS cable, pressed play on the analog camera .... and nothing. I pressed the play mode, record mode and any other buttons I could find on the SR82 but no images of the analog camera tape can be seen. So, what am I doing wrong? I even tried hooking up the SR82 to my computer via USB to see if 'pass through' would work, but I can't get the computer to read anything either (other than what is stored on my SR82's harddrive). My computer is a new Sony Vaio with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit. Help!!

We are in Ghana we need frequency and we update to get more channel


Your flat panel TV is probably factory set to receive ATSC signals (Hi-def DIGITAL TV), whereas
Ghana may not have converted from analog TV (NTSC) yet.

Digital TV's cannot receive analog signals. I'm just guessing about whether or not Ghana supports
Hi-Def broadcasts - you'll have to check with (any) TV channel in Ghana. The Analog-to-digital
conversion is an expensive one at the broadcast end, and may not have happened yet in Ghana.

The US conversion took place by FCC mandate June 12, 2009.
There are available $65 (USD) digital-to-analog converters, but what you may need is an
analog-to-digital converter, which doesn't exist. Your Flat-panel TV amy have to wait until Ghana
begins broadcasting a Hi-Def TV channel.

For a HD antenna, a regular old rabbit ear-type antenna will do.

Even though your camcorder says Digital it still records in Analog via the tape.Your memory stick is the digital part and computer compatible.You will need to buy a converter (mine cost $25) to use this camera with a computer.The download would be in real time,at whatever speed you camcorder plays and it takes forever,believe me,I know.I have some 50 different tapes I'm converting to be put on DVD.These converters are available just about everywhere, or take it to your local fotoshop and they will do the conversion for you.Hope this helps?

Dtv and more channels


The original date for digital conversion for television broadcasts was February 17, 2009. The date has been extended to June 12, 2009 by Congress, at which time all analog television broadcasting will be discontinued. Some stations, due to technical reasons, have already made the transition, while others continue to broadcast an analog signal. This may attribute to your only receiving 4 stations via your "rabbit ear" antenna.

You can check the website of your favorite stations to see when they will make the transition to digital broadcasting. Also, households are eligible for up to two coupons for $40 each toward the purchase of certain converter boxes. You can check out the details at https://www.dtv2009.gov/ for more information regarding the coupons.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
