    it does take pics. the camera has a spot for more pics,but I only use what space is on the camera itself. I can do about 60 pics. Everything looks fine until you plug in the usb cord and try to get things to load. Nothing happens.

It couldd be the computer no recognising the camera. If you have software from CD loaded- Remove it. Then with the camera plugged in and switched and set to upload- REboot the computer

    Does the camera actually take pictures?
    How many images are there on the card?
    What can you see in the LCD?
    More information wanted.

    What I need to know now is what computer system are you on?

    Then the camera should be recoginsed.
    I am not familiar how a camera with built in memory and a card slot actually gets read.
    Is it possible that as switched on it is looking at the empty card slot when it should be looking at the on board memory?
    How does it change from one to other?
    Check your manual- also on the CD there is a more comprehensive manual usually in PDF format.
    Check that out also.

I have not used my handycam for a few months, and now it does not record. Push rec button and nothing happens .The camera will take pics rewind,fast foreward and play but push record and nothing.

The camera wont go in record mode if the tape protection tab is over hole on rear of cass tape, maybe you ought to buy new tape and try again, very little goes wrong on those cameras my friend, there is nothing on market as good these days I can tell you.

What you will need to do is download the newest version of Quicktime and then it should work ok. For some reason there is a problem trying to get it to work with 7.3.
