Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR42 Camcorder

1 Answer

Hard drive is full

The hard drive is full on my handycam DCR-SR42. I put in a memory stick and formatted it, but I dont know what to do next to start recording on the memory stick. The handbook does not cover this. Does anyone know what I need to do?

The memory stick can only be used for taking still pictures (which are of terrible quality). Your only option for creating space on your hard drive is to delete items. Before that you can upload videos to your computer and/or burn them on DVDs. Sony actuallly has a DVD burner called DVDirect where you can burn DVDs without the use of a computer. I hope this helps.

HOW CAN I RETRIEVE DELETED VIDEO


if it is from a memory card, you can use a program like sandisk rescuePro deluxe or many types of drive or card recovery software to find and pull off files. if you have formatted over the card by accident the most important thing is not to record on it at all. otherwise you will record over the formatted material.

Its a Sony DCR-SX41 and it is telling me internal memory format error and all my videos ar gone and i can no longer record


I'm sorry that the Camcorder is displaying the error message. The error message indicates that the format of the internal memory is corrupted. It may be due to the deletion of Camcorder's default files from the internal memory. It can happen when connecting to Computer and browse using Windows Movie Maker. To avoid happening this in the future, please transfer videos and pictures using Picture Motion Browser Software. Once you format the internal memory of the Camcorder, you will be able to use it for new recordings. Note: Formatting will delete all data and video stored in the Memory. You can follow the below steps to format the internal Memory.

I loss my memory stick of Handycam DCR-TRV40E


Do not panic, yes the Sony mem stick can record, but why dont you use the proper tapes for these cameras to do your movies on? they are readily available in all good camera shops, even Argos do them.
The mem sticks are available from your local Maplin shop okay.
