SOURCE: "Format error" with sony MHS-CM1 webbie, 16GB produo

There is a firmware update available for your Camcorder at this link http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=MHSCM1&SelectOS=7 Download and follow the site instructions for installing it. The high capacity memory stick PRO is probably beyond the current camera's capacity to recognize and the firmware update should fix it.

The orange light blinks a couple of times then goes off and after that the green power light blinks once with the antenna light


Blinking orange lights means no power or low power. Not enough to power the laptop. If it is plugged in and still the same, then your charging port or charger is damaged.

I have deleted videos from my sony cam mhs cm1 please help me


It is possible to recover deleted videos as long as the space they occupied on the hard drive has not been recorded over.


There are many excellent video recovery programs on the market today. My favorite is UndeletePlus by TouchStone software available at the site below. It is easy to use and very thorough.

Work Around:

The only way that it may work is if you were to connect the camera to the computer via an analog video cable (yellow RCA cable) and/or audio (red and white RCA cables) for those models where audio signal transfer is also available. computer must have the ability of accepting input from these analog RCA plug(s).


To connect a digital camera for video conferencing follow this procedure:

1. Plug in the AC Adapter and set the Power/Function dial to Camera.

2. Connect an A/V cable from the Video OUT on the camera to the Video IN on the computer.

3. Within the third party software, select Composite as the input source.
