SOURCE: Filesize query

It's probably not out of line. A one hour minDV holds about 13.5 gigs. AVI files need a LOT of space. Yes, it will be compressed before it goes to DVD, but compression (also called rendering) usually isn't done during the capture process. How much hard drive space do you have? You probably need more.

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your recorder, here are some for your option.

Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the camcorder in case the original files(your recordings) are overwritten.

I have a sony camcorder DCR-HC48. My viewfinder is not working and I would like to know if there is any way to fix it? The screen is just grey when the camera is on.


Does the viewer screen work when playing back a tape? If yes, then you have may have a sensor problem with the camera. If the playback tape does not appear on the viewer screen, then it sounds like a faulty connection between the camera and the viewer screen. In either case, you will probably need to discuss repairs with Sony Tech Support / Video Camera Repair. The number as listed on their website: Priority Service Line (for U.S. only): 239-768-7547

After you wade through the recorded-message-menu-maze and get to Camcorder Repair Department, you will receive quality assistance for the issue. (I recently had a similar problem with one of my Sony cameras and had to call them to schedule repairs.)
