My camera say's the batteries are empty already after 2 minutes of recording. I de-charge the batteries with a 3R9 5W resistor and they gave 1 hour 1A equals 3000mAh so the batteries where fully charged. After emptying the batteries put them on the charger for ±5sec and then emptying them further with the resistor. Repeat this cycle until the batteries are realy empty. (the resistor don't get warm). Then fully charge them and do the de-charging cycle again. Repeat this a couple of times and you see that you can record 1 hour whith the batteries again. Succes and greeting email@example.com

Premiere elements will work well. It's one of the better consumer programs out there because it has so many features and allows multiple file types imports and exports. It's a little complicated but I like it because it allows you to use a lot of formats and it give you all of the program features right away.
Pinnacle is also an option. It is not as complicated. It does not give you all of the features, but it is easier to use if you can get past the bugs.
Another option that I would not recommend is Movie Maker. It's free on your computer. However it can be very buggy. Simply plug your cam in and capture.It also has relatively few file export options.

Hi, Just wanted to know how old your unit is. The original Sony batteries usually last a long time. I also had a similar problem, none of these batteries last 1000 charges. Batteries are cheap now . I just purchased a new battery for my old sony and it was $18 and it is a higher capacity. You can even find them combined with a new charge for about $35. You should also try to keep the new batteries charged . I fully charge them and then remove them from the recorder. If there is any drain on them and it is left uncharged for a long period you will kill the battery. I have a garage full of battery operated toys that worked fine when they were put away and now are shot. They should be stored just like they do at the store when you got them , disconnected and fully charged. Hope this helps

It could be a dodgy Charger, if it has a problem and not kicking out enough power, it will think that the battery has power equal to that of the charger, i.e. fully charged altho' it isnt, and cut off, making it appear to all be working. If its a mini USB type charger you could try a different one from something else they are all 5v, but some draw more current (mA).
