Using USB


Before transferring digital images through the USB Connection, you must install the driver and software that came with your camcorder. The software may vary by model. Please view the attached instructions and system requirements for installing the software. Instructions for transferring images through DVC media are provided on the disk as well. For newer models, you can use Windows Explorer to transfer still images. After installing the driver as instructed in the attachment, follow these instructions. 1. Connect one end of the USB Cable to the Camcorder. 2. Connect the other end of the USB Cable to the PC 3. Power on the Camcorder. (You will notice a green arrow appear in the lower right hand corner of your monitor indicating the device has been detected by your PC) 4. Right click the 'Start' button and choose 'Explore' 5. The Camcorder will appear as a 'Removable Disk' with a drive letter. 6. Click on the Removable Disk and two folders will appear. DCIM and SSMOV. DCIM will contain still images. (SSMOV will contain mpeg's) 7. Double Click the DCIM folder 8. Double Click the folder named 100SSDVC 9. All pictures on the memory stick will appear. 10. You can highlight any (or all) pictures you would like to transfer and move or copy to them to the folder of your choice. (You can select a folder in the left window pane of Windows Explorer and drag and drop files as well) 11. When you are through, you must 'Safely Disconnect' the camcorder by right clicking the green arrow in the lower right hand corner of your screen. (Follow the on screen instructions.

Black bars in the picture


For Models: CC4352, CC4362, CC4393. Your camcorder has a wide format recording mode that lets you make recordings compatible with the 16x9 format. When 16x9 is activated, the camcorder records black bars at the top and bottom of the picture to produce the wide-screen (movie) effect. This is also known as "letterbox" recording. Do not use this mode unless you have a compatible 16x9 TV. When played on a regular TV, black bars appear on the screen. If the 16x9 feature is activated on your camcorder and you want to turn it off, press REC/PAUSE to pause recording, and repeatedly press DIGITAL EFFECTS until no digital effects display appears.
