After half a day recording, I looked at the footage at home and after half of the cassette the picture suddenly went from clear into bis pixels, you can hardly see what should be on the tape, but mainly the whole record consists of pixels. I used a cleaning tape, but it didn´t get better!
Is it a problem with the record head or with the electronic?

Try reinserting a Brand new Cassette . If this dos`nt work take the battery out over night reinsert the battery with the Brand new cassette in it .if you used the recorder to play very much footage as a viewer it has over heated it . the sensor that sense`s a cassette is just a little out of place with a little skill and if you know what you are looking for you can put this back in possition!
Sorry but the only way to transfer the tape is to be able to play it in a compatible camcorder or player. Then use one of the analog to digital converters "available on the internet" to transfer it to a PC. Best bet is to ask some friends if they have an old camcorder that will be able to play that video cassette for you. Sidenote: If the cassette is fairly new it might already be recorded in digital format, in which case you only need a compatible camcorder or player and a USB or Firewire cable to import it into your Mac

Try Browsing the folders I Hope your footage is in one of those folders. To Make It easier Goto Folder options click detail for folder check dates for the shooting time & open those 1st also if the camcorders timer is not set right may look in folders day earlier. Also look for big files Dvd takes lot of space.
Belive you are not being given chance to record or finalize becuse camcorder automaticaly did so. Rarely but it happens when a disk will have errors on it & when it finalzies you can lose info/footage. Why I still prefer tape.
To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!
I had the same problem. I fixed it by gently dropping the camcorder on the carpeted floor. I know it sounds silly, but it really works. I've had to do it twice, and it worked both times. I hope it works for you.
Well, I went to The Sony site and what I found out was that currently this camera is only ceritfied for a 512mb stick. It does say what the qualiy is the memory stick is E-mail mode with a resultion of 160x112 pixels. The TAPE
mode is DV quality or 740X480 pixels. Try recording both
ways and see what looks better when you play it back on you TV or PC then decide.
