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.

SONY HANDYCAM DCR-DVD105 ERROR MSG C:13:02


Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc

I have a HANDYCAM SONY DCR-DVD 106, and I keep getting the following message error - "Disc error. Unsupported format - 13:023, with regard to a mini MEMOREX DVD-R.


Disc error. Unsupported format means that ur camera does not support the format of this disc it might not support DVD-R or DVD-RW and supports the DVD+R and +RW try the other format disc and let me know if it resolved , check the manual it is stated on the box or manual which format it supports, if it does not solve ur problem try some other brand instead of MEMOREX try sony,hp,fuji,philips and see actually these sony cameras they are sometimes locked by the manufacturer to only use the original discs for monopoly sony acts like that in every product

pls do rate me if i fixya problem

C:13:02, Disc error. Remove disc. Recording disabled.


I'm sorry to say, that all disk manufactures are not the same. If you used a "no name" disk, then the quality may not be what you want, although in rare cases, even good companys like Memorex can make a bad batch or two. Just try another disk. Let me know if that works by leaving a comment. If this works for you, rate my solution a fixya!

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 =)

Problem useing tdk dvd-rw


1. cleaning the laser lens with isopropilic alcohol and q-tip
2. Try the reset button on the bottom of the camera. Tilt your camera and look below the LCD Display Backlight button on the bottom edge of the curved portion of the camera. You will need a paperclip or tip of a ball point pen to push the recessed little button. Place the camera on a level surface and try again. We find that the camera is very sensitive to tilting, as it gets older.
3. Make sure you format format at was FAT not fat32
4. All you need to do is "Quick format" the disk with the CAMERA rather than the memry stick plugged into the computer drive.
5. For sony error c:1301 using mini cd's: there is a program that recovers data from cd's that works with disk that have this error. It called "cdroller" Homepage is : www.cdroller.com
6. just take the memory stick off and re-insert it lot of times.. just keep doing it.

My Hitachi VM H710A plays just fine, and the picture looks fine. But when it playsback footage or records footage, five to ten seconds later, it stops abruptly, and flashes the word "TAPE". First thing I must add, is that I was using a prerecorded videotape, and was testing it from the beginning of the cassette and the middle of the cassette. I thought maybe the heads were dirty, and so I cleaned them using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. I cleaned the head drum with a piece of paper soaked with rubbing alcohol so that I wouldn't get any fibres in the heads. I waited for it to dry and then I put a cleaning cassette inside. To which, it still stopped abruptly five to ten seconds in during playback. I then decided to look at the manual of the camcorder and see the symptom. It says that due to temperature changes that it might cause this symptom. I placed it in a cool room and left it there all day and checked on it, and the camcorder is still doing the same thing as before hand. Then another cause said that it might sense some moisture. I made sure that the camcorder was dry externally and internally, and yet still, same problem. Thats when I decided to take it apart and look inside to see if there was anything odd inside the camcorder causing it to function the way it does. The belt seemed to be working fine, and there was no missing parts. The tracking poles and path alignment was fine, and not loose. Everything simply seemed just fine. So I am unsure as to why my camcorder is operating like this.
