How do I transfer video to PC


The DCR-DVD205 does not support a direct connection to a PC. You have to record to a disc on the camcorder and then play the disc on the PC. Please see the instructions beginning on page 61 of the manual.

I want to connect my DCR-DVD205 to my imac


Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't this a DVD camcoder, as in records directly to 3" DVD's?

If so, just put your mini DVD into the tray as you would a normal DVD. There is a smaller inner ring on the dvd tray made for 3" discs to sit in.

From there you can edit it directly from the DVD to the computer, and burn it back out onto a normal blank DVD.

Hope that all makes sense =)

Dcr-dvd 205 error code


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
