    You can try to recover your movies from camcorder and PC with Easy Drive Data Recovery software:http://www.munsoft.com/EasyDriveDataReco... It uses unique modern algorithms to recover files that other software either recovers incorrectly or is unable to detect. You should connect your camcorder to PC as removable drive.

That depends on how larger these newly written videos are.
Generally, the deleted/lost files are not actually erased from this hard drive as we think normally. They are still there. However, they cannot be exit there forever. As long as any new file writes there, they would be overwritten and gone permanently. So, I hope your original files have not completely overwritten by your new video.
Here, you can try to restore these deleted videos back for free with the help of a deleted photo recovery freeware:

Note: Next time, never save your important data on only on drive or location.

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.

How to use a sony handycam dcr-sr80 hd as a web cam?


It is not possible to use the Camcorder as webcam using USB interface as the Camcorder does not have the USB Streaming feature.

You may connect the Camcorder to the A/V input of the Computer to use it as webcam.. However, it is required to use a software which is compatible for capturing videos from A/V interface to use it as webcam.

Hello i have accidentily deleted a video from my camcorder (sony dcr-sx40) without transfering it to my laptop. how can i recover this video from the cam corder directly ?? thanks


In this case you may need video recovery software, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photo and music files.
Connect your camcorder (memory card or hard disk) to your computer with such recovery program installed, and then start to recover. Take the trial version first,

Video Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Video Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

A Tip: Before your videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card or stick in case the original files(your videos) are overwritten.

The disk within the camera is called a Hard-Drive, to burn the movie on DVD you connect the camera to PC with a Firewire cable, and go into Windows Acc file, there you will see Making movies software, just let windows do it by pushing buttons as prompted.

Sony dcr-sx40. Restore deleted movies from the camera hard drive


The answer is YES if you take care. Do it as follows.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

First things first: DO NOT take any more movies with the hard drive(within your camcorder) that you want to recover movies from. Because if you take any more files or save any data to your hard drive, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the HD to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive".

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your movies with this software called Wondershare Photo Recovery (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link(the program also recover MOVIES and music files):

Photo Recovery for Windows (if you are running Windows OS)
Photo Recovery for Mac (for Apple Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your cam(hard disk) until you can recover the files safely!

Copying movies to computer sound won't play


Most digital HDD sony handycam video cameras encode MPEG-2 files in 5.1 surround sound audio. You probably are not hearing sound because your playback software does not support 5.1 surround sound encoded MPEG-2 files. Try using a newer peice of software with the latest codecs installed.
