Question about Nikai DV8500 Camcorder

1 Answer

Can't take pictures or video

I have a brand new Panoramic DV8500 mini camcorder. When I try to take a picture or video, a message on the screen says " Directory Index Full", and I cannot take any pictures or video. Any ideas would be helpful.

This sounds like it doesn't make sense, and I don't know why it started working ok, but all I did was switch the position on the memory card to ''locked'', put it in the camcorder and of course it told me the card was locked. So I reinstalled it after ''unlocking'' it, and now it seems to work ok. Can't explain why this worked and still don't know what a "Directory Index" is...

Can't take picture or record video?


Try turning the screen all the way around and close the screen so the screen its left outside where you can see if that doesn't work you will need to replace the ribon that connects the screen to camcorder.

Can you please tell me why when i try to import vidoes using picture motion browsing i am getting the message Cannot find source media for importing,


You might be connecting the Camcorder using USB interface. Picture Motion Browser Cannot be used for transferring videos from tape camcorder (mini DV in your case) using USB interface..

Operating System also matters..

If you're using XP OS, you can install the driver from supplied CD and use Windows Movie Maker to transfer the recordings using USB interface.

Vista, Windows 7 - You need to use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer the recording. When using i.LINK with Vista, you can use the Picture Motion Browser software.

I think this will definitely help you to connect the Camcorder..

How to troubleshoot a video camera when the LCD screen is dark or has no display, in a Sony handycam DCR TRV22E mini


If you see correct picture in Eye Piece view finder but dark picture in LCD that shows problem with connecting flexible wire between LCD board and Camcorder main board. It got cracked/ damaged or broken after some time due to open/ close of LCD in its position.
Replace that flexible wire and problem will be solved.
Post back further question if you have any.
Thanks.

Aiptek IS-DV Memory Full message when memory card is empty


Exactly the same thing happend to me with my brand-new Aiptek. Turns out it was the no-name brand SD card that I got from China which destroyed it. Aiptek was kind enough to replace it for free since it was under warranty. Aiptek's caution: Stick to brands like SanDisk, Dane-Elec, Kingston, Transcend or PNY. Purchase from resellers like Target, Best Buy, Newegg.com or Amazon.com. Avoid MINI & MACRO style cards. NO Sandisk Ultra II or Extreme III, class 6. AVOID Hi-SPEED!

Laptop not recognizing USB connection from HC20


I'm not sure why the camcorder is giving you an error message... but you should know that this "Burn VCD" thing is a pretty nasty hack from Sony. 

This will only work in conjunction with the Sony "Picture Package" software.. you have to have that running and properly set up for the video transfer via USB to work. And if it does work, the quality will be horrible -- 1/4 the resolution of you DV images, and arguably worst than VHS tape.

For a real video transfer from any mini-DV camcorder, you need a Firewire connection (Sony calls this i.Link), and a video
capture utility (Windows Movie Maker will work, that's included with most versions of Windows these days). A good video package will allow you to convert the DV footage into DVD, which maintains the quality of the DV camcorder's native format.

There is a recall on some Canon camcorders. Call Canon technical support. They will fix for free as well as free shipping. I had the same problem.
