Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD405 Camcorder
I have a Sony dcr-dvd405 and taped a high school football game but when I tried to copy it to my computer from the camera it stops uploading at 4%.
I can see all the segments (mpgs) in the lcd display and play them from there but that is it.. in the fourth segment there is a question mark. I tried to put the dvd in my computer and it won't read it so I could just copy the mpgs directly to my computer... there is a lot of video on that disc but I can't copy it..
I had the same problem when I used a DVD-RW that I formatted on my
computer. I fixed the problem by formatting it correctly on my
camcorder. There are two choices and you must choose the format style
based on how you want to use the disk.
Insert DVD disk in camcorder. On the camcorder LCD monitor, press [P-Menu], [Set Up], [Media Set], [Format]. At this point, you have two options: [Video] or [VR]. Choose [Video] (Touch each one and read the fine above the buttons. [Video] lets you view the DVD on other players, but does not allow for editing on the camcorder. [VR] allows editing on the camcorder, but does not allow viewing on other non-VR devices.)
Fortunately I figured this out after recording one event incorrectly--a game so bad that my son didn't mind loosing it.

Make sure your DVD is finalized before playing in your computer. You can't play it outside of your camcorder until you do.
