How can I watch my video tapes from my sony handycam when touch screen is broken?


you can use the s-video cable for connecting it to tv if the camera has a s-video port.

alternatively you can download the software from sony website for your handycam which can convert the video from the tape into a CD/DVD. You can then watch them on tv using your DVD/CD Player. if you do this you need to ensure that the video is captured in same mode as your TV NTSC or PAL)

How to convert mini DV to DVD via Computor


You should have a computer with either USB or firewire (also known as ilink or 1394) port and a cable to connect your camcorder to this port on computer. Using firewire would be better as you would not get good quality with USB (may be OK for VCD, but definitely not good for DVD). If you have Sony DCR-HC42 model, then place it on its stand and use the suitable port on its stand to connect to the computer via the cable. If it is some other camera, then see its manual to locate the port. Your camera should necessarily have one of these ports for conversion to DVD via computer. The computer should also have a DVD writer, apart from firewire port (or at least USB2 port for the poor quality).

Now, if you use Windows operating system and have this model of Sony, go to Sony's site and download the DVD making software from there. Connect your camcorder to computer and use this software for converting to DVD. The software is user friendly and you would be able to use it without problem. Do not use the software on CD that came with the camcorder as that can make only VCDs.

If you use linux, you can use dvgrab or kino software to capture the video on harddisk in raw (DV) or avi format. Afterwards, use mencoder or such software to convert and burn to DVD format.

How to convert mini dv into cd. Does it require data cable or some special software to do so.


smartjanivj,

This depends on what kind of CD you wish to make. If you simply wish to put the videos on the CD as data to be viewed later on another computer, you can transfer the video into windows movie maker (most PC's come with this free program) with File > Import video from Digital Video Camera, and then your movie can be saved via File > Publish Movie. Select "This Computer" and click Next. Select a name for your movie and the directory in which you want to save the file and click Next. Then adjust any final settings and click Publish. Then you can burn that file onto a CD.

However if you wish to make a DVD, follow the same steps as above but instead of selecting "This Computer", select "DVD". NOTE This step only works if you also have Windows DVD Maker installed.

Both Windows Movie Maker and Windows DVD maker can be downloaded for free off the internet, if they are not already on your computer.

Hope this helps :)
