In order to change the menu settings you must 1.)turn on the power 2.) Touch FN to display PAGE 1. 3.) Touch MENU to display menu. Use the arrow buttons to scroll until the TAPE SET menu is highlighted. Press the exec button to reveal SP in RECORD MODE. Press it again to bring up a menu that will give you the choice of SP or LP. When you're done press the exec. button a couple of times and you're done. Do Keep that even though the tape will run 1.5 its normal length there are certain features that cannot be used while in Long Play (LP) mode. I have a sony camera but was looking at your model camera yesterday. I noticed that many of the menus and navigations were the same. I'm assuming that my directions will at least allow you to know what menu to look for. Good Luck.

Your camera records in two modes: SP and LP modes. SP is a higher quality mode that runs for about 60 minutes, while LP records for 90.
To change to LP mode, open the menu and select [VCR setup]. Select [REC MODE], set it to [LP] and close the menu.
Keep in mind that your video and audio will be of noticeably lower quality with this setting applied.
for the dcrtrv320 here's how you do it.ensure you have the power switch set to camera/vtr. press the menu button. will give you little icons on the screen (you should see manual set or vtr set). scroll down to the icon the looks like a tape (tape set). use the sel/push exec dial (it's the dial near the menu button,bottom of the viewfinder and left side of the batt) you scroll it up/down and push it in to confirm your selection.in tape set you have rec mode (press sel/push exec dial in)scroll to sp and press sel/push exec dial again to confirm setting. press menu to exit menu settings. hope this helps.thanks :)
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.
There is a built-in rechargeable battery in the camera and after approx 3 months it will be completely discharged if the camcorder is not used. To recharge: Connect camcorder to wall outlet using the supplied AC Adapter with the power switch turned OFF for more than 24 hours. (To keep the internal batter charged, try to plug the camera in every couple of months or attach a fully charged external battery for at least 24hrs). To set the clock: Set the power switch to CAMERA and then press MENU. Turn the dial to select CLOCK SET, scroll to the toolbox looking icon -it may say DEMO MODE next to it. Then press the dial. Turn the dial to select the desired year, month, day and then pressing the dial to set each as you go. For the tape speed go to Menu settings scroll to find Tape settings (TAPE SET), select REC MODE and from there you can change the tape speed from SP to LP. Hope this helps. I have the Sony Digital 8 HandycamDCR-TRV250 I purchased about 3 or 4 years ago (700x digital zoom etc).
Power up camera on Camera mode, go to menu, select camera settings, go to Record Mode and select SP or LP there. Now your camera is ready to record as per selection.
You can not change speed SP/LP during playback mode because its properties of signal set during recording.
