Do you have a Firewire cable? that is the only way to retrieve video off of the camcorder. If you don't have one you probably need a 4-6 pin connector. Hope this helped, Snowsurfer58

Wont play disc back that it recorded.


I get loads of the same question you ask every day, the DVD disks do sadly fail, out of a pack of 10 you can say that 2 will not write or play back, this is still the reason most pro movie makers like myself will only use movie tape today like the Hi 8 mm sort.
Also beware as we have found that lots of DVD disks we have made over 9 years ago no longer will work, so never feel your precious movies are pernament with this new mode of recordings.

Video memory full on camcord, how to burn it onto a dvd?


First be sure to have installed ImageMixer software that came with the camera. If you can't find the disc go here... http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=DCRSR40&LOC=3 then select your operating system and then select imagemixer to download.

Step 1:
Place camera onto docking station, connect usb cable to computer, open camera door, turn on camera. Imagemixer should open automatically, if not open up imagemixer.

Transfer to Computer:
Select "Viewing and Editing", then select "handycam" tap, click on "▼" (arrow) facing down, then click "movies". Place a check mark on each movie you wish to move to the computer then click "Options" tab (lower left corner) and see where the movies will end up once you click "Import to computer".

Burn to DVD:
Be sure you have a DVD drive that can write to DVD's. Will have DVD R/RW on the face of the drive. Place a blank DVD into drive. Follow Step 1. Then click "One Touch DVD Burn" from the imagemixer menu. Follow any instructions on screen.

Or you can choose to use Windows Explorer and select the drive letter that is your camera's harddrive and move/copy/cut/paste files directly from this location to another.

Unable to Read/upload photos from my Camcorder to PC


Your computer should be reading your connected camcorder as an additional drive or hard drive (not folder) when connected. Here are some tips to make this easier for you (Make sure your camcorder is on movies not pictures when you do this):


Steps:

1. Connect you usb to you computer and camcorder
2. Camcorder ask do you want to playback, backup, create dvd, direct print.... Choose playback
3. Option pops up on your computer.. Select "Take No Action"
4. Go into My Computer and open the E: or Everio_HDD
5. >>For movies- Select SD-Video - Folder PRG002 or PRG001 are where your movie files is located
Drag and drop .MOD files to your desktop **.MOI files are indexes of the .MOD files and will not convert **

>>For Pictures- Select DCIM - Folder 101JVCSO or 100JVCSO - Drag and Drop to desktop - NO FILE CONVERSION NECESSARY

6. Change the file extension to .MPG

** If you find yourself haveing issues changing the file extension, open my computer... select tools... go to folder options.... uncheck "Hide extension for known file types", check it back when your finished if you have kids.. I do for my computer.***

**You are simply creating copies of your files when you drag and drop you movies and pics***

No changing of file extensions is necessary if just saving to computer and you have the software.... but file extension change will allow you to view back movies with Windows Media Player.

Hope this helps
