I have a dcr-sr200 and have 7 hrs worth of video to burn that took about five hours. But when I check it the time date stamp did not appear. I can seem to figure it out . please help


I understand that you have burned the videos to a disc using Computer and the burned videos does not have the date and time on it. In order to get date and time on videos taken using the Hard Disk Camcorder, the video should transfer using A/V interface with the DATA CODE option on the Camcorder enabled.

Once you enable DATA CODE, the date and time will be shown when playing videos in the Camcorder. You can view when you connect the Camcorder directly to a TV. While using the A/V interface with Computer to capture videos using an Analog Video Capture Software like Windows Movie Maker, you will get the videos in Computer with date and time displayed. You can burn those videos using a burning software.

If you're using stand alone DVD Recorder, you can enable the DATA CODE and use the A/V interface to connect the Camcorder to the DVD Recorder to get the date and time on videos.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know for clarifications. You can also give more information about the recording method you're using to give more specific instructions.

I have a Zenith DVD/VCR and I am recording a tape


unless the security camera has a setting for recording the date stamp you probably can't. The camera probably has a setup tab to enable embedding the date stamp on the video.

How is the time/date stamp displayed on a copy


The time/date is 'stamped' onto the video during recording. The time/date stamp function can be turned on or off in the setup menu. If it was 'on' during recording, it will be displayed when played back. If it was turned off, it will not be seen on the recording.

DAte/Time stamp


I was having the same problem, and was tasked to find a solution at work.

I ended finding talking with a developer who wrote a custom utility that can extract the time/date data from the .MPG (it's hidden in there somewhere) as a special txt file.

Here's a link to that utility: (special version for NTSC footage):
http://dl.free.fr/pNo24JrdB (Special thanks to fnx91 on the videohelp forums)

Then you import that file into a piece of software called DVSubmaker which will convert that data in a special format (.sub) used by certain DVD/Video players to display subtitles.

Here's the best 2 options for playback:

1. Windows Media Player (need Mpeg2 codec) combined with a plugin called Vobsub - Free:)
2. ZoomPlayer (DVD Software) - $60

So in a nutshell, your displaying the original time/date stamp as subtitles on top of the video.

Contact me if you have any troubles.

Adapter question


There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.
