You do not need drivers to get the footage from tape to a Mac. You do require a firewire cable and use iMovie or Final Cut to capture.

I have Sony DCR SR 40 Camorder. Recorded clips can only be seen and no audio output from camcorder. If clips are copied on laptop still audio not possible from laptop also. What may be the problem? Can...


If the data stored does not contain audio then it is possible that there was an error in the audio section that did not record.
SO you will need to redo once again after testing the mic or the input to confirm if recording takes place. if not I would advice that the cam be shown to Sony Service than to take a trial on delicate circuits within.

I can't see any image of my tapes on the Sony DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder.


Try playing one of the tapes on another Sony DV/DVCAM device and make sure the tape is OK. Also, try running a cleaning tape through the camera for 8-14 seconds (no longer!) on playback. If this does not remedy the problem, then your camera needs repair.

Hi i have a Sony hdr CX550 handycam camcorder


Most mics will work if the plug fits the socket on camera and it fits on the hot shoe okay, I never use Sony mics on my Sony camera, you end up paying for the name, not the item.

What setting do i use to run my cordles mic in to audio 1


Without more clarification I am assuming that you have the onboard mic plugged in normally & I don't know where the RF mic is connected.

First thing is that we know that you get sound from the shotgun mic in ch. 1. If you do not plan on using the onboard shotgun, then the fix is easy! Since it has been confirmed that ch. 1 works, just disconnect your shotgun & plug in the RF receiver to that, check your levels, and shoot away.

If you are still wanting to use that shotgun along with the RF, then I suggest that you re-read pages 51 - 54 of the instruction manual. You can find where to jack in, how to set, and change audio levels on these pages. Good Luck!

Microphone


For microphones with a 3.5 mm miniplug you can use a plug-in at the front of the camera. There is a little plastic cover over the hole under the word "MIC". I would call this an emergency solution because for most recording purposes you would want a microphone with XLR connectors.

This camcorder comes with an external shotgun condenser mic and XLR adaptor. If you have the operating instructions that come with the camera, you can turn to page 29 where there is a description of how to install the supplied external microphone.

When you slip the hot shoe plug of the XLR adaptor into the intelligent accessory shoe, the internal microphone is by-passed. In case you do not have the operating instructions you can download them from the Sony manual site.
http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl

Put briefly, Attach the XLR adaptor to the accessory shoe on the top front of the camcorder and tighten the screw of the adaptor. Connect the hot shoe plug of the SLR adaptor to the intelligent accessory shoe of the camcorder, located behind the adaptor screw. When you push the hot shoe plug into place you should hear a click. Sometimes you have to use a little strength to get it correctly seated.

I hope this helps.
