Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Trying to import video from Sony Digital 8mm camcorder and get about 2 minutes into the download and it freezes up. I have a brand new top of the line HP 9400 computer that should handle the Roxio Creator 9 software. Had about the same problem with my 4 year old laptop last year and figured it was a memory issue. Obviously it is a software problem, not a computer problem.

    I have Vista on the new computer system. I cannot find a way to migrate or import the video captured via Windows Movie Maker over to Roxio 9 without first burning it to a DVD then importing from the DVD. Any solutions on this one?

    I could not add video either!!!

    I've tried "capture video", and it freezes without fail!

    So frustrating. I'm not an expert by any means, but I seemed to remember being able to import Mini DV video before utilizing firewire and now it seems to not even recognize its even there.

    Help!

Try using windows movie maker software, it comes with windows xp. you can then import the video into Roxio after it is captured. I have used the Roxio Creator 9 and I hated it, always freezing up. I got the Roxio Creator 10 and it works much better. I think the problem you are having is the Roxio 9. I had problems with it and I have 4 Gig of RAM and a daul core 3.0GHZ processor, also a good computer. You may also want to try rebooting your computer right before you do the capture, sometimes that help me with the Roxio 9.

    Is this because of the video format that you are capturing it in? Movie Maker lets you change the default folder where you save the video files and you can change the type of video file it captures.

    When you open Roxio, select the "MyDVD" to make your DVD. When this is open you can then choose to "Add Video" to your project from the left side menus. Then choose the video file you just captured by going to the folder you just saved it in when using the Windows Movie Maker.

    I do this all the time and have never had any trouble importing the video. If you still have problems let me know, and tell me what format you are saving the video files in Movie Maker and what folder you are saving them in. Also let me know what happens when you try to "Add Video" to a project in Roxio.

HAVE CCD-TRV22 , WHAT VIDEO TAPE NUMBER DO I


Though 8mm filming was and still is the best safest way to make movies Sony have stopped producing 8mm tapes, I use the brand new Digital 8 tapes on my brand new Sony camera, would never dream of going over to Hard drive/SD card/DVD recording cameras as the image will not last as long as it will on 8mm tape.
Also the 8mm cameras are much better made than anything since 2006.
If you type 8mm movie tapes in your search engine you will find 100's of firms still selling your tapes, they will help you choose the right one ok?

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


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.

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Imovie imports Hi8 tape but not plain 8 tapes


What it is, is the standard 8mm tapes are not digital, and therefore won't import into imovie, unless you have the 8mm to Hi8 option enabled in playback mode, by setting it in the menu, under playback settings.

Not reading Hi8 tapes


Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
