It is becuse the camcorder will automatically shutoff if there is no use of it in a certain time period, this helps save batterie time and turn on the camcorder and wait for ur videos to loafd then sut it off

Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.


This is a sample of a FIREWIRE cable.


Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.

Hitachi mini dvd cam will not eject disc, will not read, will not write, will not record. Also cannot read mini disc on Windows Vista, is there a driver for either of these issues?

This has happened to me many times. The disk has an error (they alway do).

1: Turn it off.
2: Attatch power connection.
3: Hold down eject button.
4: It should say: "DISK ACCESS"
5: It may take a long time, but put it down in this state and leave it for as long as it may take.
6: Later on, it will eject the disk.
7: Discard of this disk, it's nothing but trouble.

My camcorder is spoilt and I am left with many mini DV tapes which I cannot download to the PC without the camcorder. Is there any solution for this?

since it is in digital format a standered VCR wont read them the hi-8 tapes have a bigger VCR tape you can put the hi-8 tape in and insert that into a VCR but the hi-8 is an analog tape is digital "DV = Digital Video" so a standard VCR wont read them the only way is to borrow a friends Mini-DV camera and copy all your tapes over. they do make a Mini-DV player but even the cheap ones cost more than a new camcorder would! Sorry to hear about your camcorder I hope this helps

Trying to download mini dv tape onto video

for to import from the Sony handy-cam you need a firewire cable ..not a rca..this one will only help you see the video on a tv ...but you will not be able to import them into computer ...
just ask at the store..and take the camera with you ..
another thing the camera may support even a usb cable that may be available in the box that it came with (infact the iLink cable should be there too )
so ..this is a link to a video I use to explain in detail the procedure to import fom minitape of sony handycam.
after have them into the windows movie maker..just drag them to the story board..(join them if you need) ..and save them by finishing movie...and save to computer best for computer mode...after that just burn them to **** ..using Nero ..or if they are small enough to get into a cd ...use window feature for burning ..

Getting dvd's from the tiny video tapes?

When you bought that CAM it should came with the interface cable and software to transfer from your CAM to DVD or your computer if you lost the software you still download from that factory Web
It won.t help you if now you will buy another CAM DVD, your previous mini DV tape still need a computer to burn into the DVD format
Give me your CAM branch and model I can tell you more OK

Please help...Blue Screen of Death?

try a head cleaning tape. the blue screen is what is displayed when the heads are too dirty to read the information on the tape. if the head cleaning tape doesn't solve it, a hand cleaning should do the job.
