How do u delete stuff on tapes from a sony handycam vision

I don't know if there's a function to delete video from a used 8mm, but you can do it the old way

1. Option: the first way occurs accidentally many times because you take video on top of what's already recorded... meaning record on top of the old tape

2. Option: leave the lens on the cam, and press record... it will record a blacked-out screen on the tape with nothing on it.

hope this helps

Hi! my sony dcr-trv265e can play the tapes via the video and tv but when i re-record over them its just a blank blank screen? so i need anothe tape or can i record over old tapes?

Sony and the other media suppliers do not recommend re-recording over any digital tapes, including MiniDV. Re using tapes can lead to dropouts and errors after only a few times. With MiniDV prices so inexpensive these days (in the grand scheme of things), is there any reason NOT to use new tape? Also, many companies keep all their MiniDV tapes as a kind of stock footage archive. You never know when you might need a shot that you have already filmed, and it saves considerable time and money to pick the tape off the shelf.

Hi, forgive me if I'm telling you something you already know but if you shot video in DV mode then the iLink switch on the camera has to be set to DV. If you shot video in SD or HD mode then it must be set to MPEG2.

Transfer from pz card shot on HD to mini DV tape

you can transfer to DV tape only by using software like Edius 6 or a similar one.
First you download the p2 card on the hard drive and then you use this program to convert the video file to DV and use the camcorder as recorder connecting to pc via firewire .

How do you delete a video?

It isn't generally possible to delete individual video clips on a tape (if that is what you meant). If you meant delete the stuff on a whole tape, that will happen when you start recording at the beginning of the tape again.

The dcr-hc38 is a minidv camcorder that usea a minidv tape. There is no "delete" on tape camcorders. You simply record over the tape. Or if you want to get rid of a recorded section on the tape you dont want, find out the exact minutes/seconds display of the section you dont want and just record over the section with the lens cap on.  To fully edit the tape, you will need to upload to your computer and use the editing software that came with your camcorder.

Since the JVC GR-D740EK is a european miniDV camcorder with no embedded memory nor memory card slot, I would assume that your talking about erasing or recording over your miniDV tapes. You can simply do so by sliding the the erase protection tab on your miniDV tape towards "record" and you can begin to record you movies. Prerecorded tapes cannot be deleted and used as "new" or bare (having no recording on it).

Viewing SONY 8mm Tapes -- Please help

The older tapes were shot on a 8mm camcorder and the camcorder you have wil not play them becasue it doesn't have backwards compatability with the older format. The tapes you recorded are on a digital 8 camcorderr and it is different encoding than the one you recorded the other 60 tapes with. You will need to find either a dcr-trv 350 trv 530 trv 730 ect as these have the ability to play all the tapes.
Or find an older 8mm camcorder to play your tapes with.
Hope this helps

Recordings are pixelized

Never use tape head cleaners, I suggest just use new blank tape and I recommend TDK minidv tapes, new tapes already serves as video head cleaner. If the problem is still there, manual cleaning is needed or it is possible that your video head is worn out already, you need profix then.

Incompatible Tape

try a cleaning tape first - best not to rewind the cleaning tape because it will put back the crud previously removed ? into your heads and guides ( last tape to play is prime suspect ) ; - - digital heads wear faster than analog so a new set of heads is next possibility but if the cleaning tape works . . . retire your library soon as possible .
