Question about Sanyo VPC-CG6 Digital Camera

How do I play my Sanyo VPC-CG6GX recording on a TV & make copies

I am happy operating my VPC - CG6GX Digital Movie Camera. However I can't work out how to play any of the recordings via a TV.
In May 2008 I took pictures of a friends 70th birthday celebration & promised to send them copies to watch on their TV in the I O M. This is easy old my old / bulky Sony Digital Handycam; I simply tune the TV to Ext 3, switch off the Digi box, plug in the yellow / white / red leads & the picture comes up. Adopting the same procedure with the new Sanyo gets me absolutely nowhere! I have tried making seperate CDs of Stills / vidio on my computer & then playing these on the TV via the Vidio player but get nothing. Any help ( SIMPLE instructions ) would be most appreciated. Thank you, Alan ( aged 70 ).

The videos these cameras produce is in mp4 format. They can be played on newer computers with the correct software. ie real player windows media etc. To play on a tv the best way is to get a wd tv box about 79 the last I looked copy your files to an external hard drive or a bigger thumb drive plug it into the wd tv via usb and then plug it into your tv via hdmi or phono plugs. Other wise a tv is not capable of playing these. also if you have a newer laptop you can connect it to you tv via hdmi.

I was just looking in the Sanyo CG6 Users Manual for you about how to watch your videos on your TV.

I noticed on page 136 there is a TV Systems Setting, to choose between NTSC (american TV) and PAL (Asian or European TV). Perhaps it is set to PAL while you are in North America, or vice versa?

Otherwise, you seem to be on the right track; when the miniplug is in the camera and the yellow, white & red leads go to the TV, the camera should by using your tv instead of its little screen.

The video only records for about 10 seconds, although the "REC" is showing.


It happens with my digital camera when the battery is low. It doesn't let me record a movie more than a few seconds. I just charge or replace the batteries with a new ones and works fine.

Also, check the memory available on your camera.

The free software for the Sanyo CG9 is available at the Sanyo CG9 Website. The commercial software that shipped with the camera is not available for download there.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 movie downloading and DVD burning


I always recommend having a version of your users manual on your computer, because it is so much easier to search through the manual quickly to find what you are looking for.

You can find a digital version of the users manual for the Sanyo CG9 here, and you will also find the free software for downloading videos to your computer and watching them there.

Once your videos are on your computer, you can burn a data disc without any commercial software. Some DIVX or XVID dvd players will play these data disks and you can watch your movies like that. An .MP4 data DVD will hold much more video than a standard DVD video disk because it squeezes it much tighter. You can play your .mp4 videos through a PS3 using a data dvd or a thumbdrive.

If you want to convert your mp4 videos to a standard dvd that will play in any dvd player, you will need commercial conversion software such as ULead MovieFactory or Nero Vision. MovieFactory was included with some sanyo camcorders, but if you have lost your disk, they do not allow you to download it from their website.

I hope that helps!

Just bought xacti VPC-HD 700. when copying video from camera to computer, video jumps and lurches. it doesn't play smoothely. when played back on camera it is fine. Playing through adobe photoshop and no...


I think you have a codec problem.You should download a codec pack such as FinalCodecs2008 or K-Lite Codec Pack
Remove any previous installed codec pack and install one of these two and you should't have problems running any movie file! I have FinalCodecs2008 and I didn't had any problems.Hope you'll listen to my advice ;)

Driver sanyo vpc cg6


When the Sanyo CG6 is plugged into the computer, and the popup menus on the camera are directed to USB Card Reader Mode, you should not require any drivers for Windows or MacOS.

Review the CG6 Users Manual for more information.
