With Sony camcorders, if there is an error, it will display an error code on the LCD screen, usually flashing. Make a note of it, search for your model number and the error code and you can most likely find the solution.

Panasonic nv gs180 has suddenly stopped working. Battery is charged but it will not turn on. There is no power at all. Daughter has her first day at school tomorrow so desperate to get it working please!

Buy a new camera, record what you need, transfer the file to your computer, and return the camera. Is the battery corroded? Sounds like you either don't have the right battery or there's a short somewhere.

There is a reset button! Get a pin and push into the tiny hole at the bottom - inside the tripod screw hole. Push in and hold. The camera will reset. I called the Flip support - they were great !

Can't download video to computer for son's school project

If you got a JVC camcorder, or Panasonic camcorder or Canon MOD camcorder, you would have probably encountered such issue--- what to do with the MOD/TOD files----the God forsaken video format? And you want to convert the recorded .MOD file type to mpeg, avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv or whatever more common, so that you can put them on Youtube, Myspace, Google video and Hulu later on to share the camcorder video with your friends or more people? And there is another headache thing is that most major video editing suites seem to unwillingly accept the MOD/TOD format. Even windows video maker, I have to say it's too complicated to use

Someone successfully made it simply by changing the extension from .mod to mpg, but for most people, they just failed only to find there is no audio after the extension is changed, or the changed one doesn’t allow you to import these files into Windows movie maker, not to mention upload some video to or Facebook.

any alternativs? There is a very simple program that convert .mod NOT ONLY to mpg but many others like avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv, rm, rmvd, mov, dv, mg2 and swf. MOD converter is the one shoot all the trouble. This excellent mod conversion tool is not just a converter but also a video editing tool. From now on, with the MOD converter, you can enjoy your mod video on many media player, even on portable devices like blackberry, Gphone, PSP, Creative Zen,etc.[/url][/b

We have lost our dcrsr100 instructions and disk in Australia. We want to download a some footage my son took for a school project and put it on Movie Maker. All the help I see is for US systems. Can you...

Connect the Cam to the Computer using USB cable.
Switch on the camera. Keep it in play/edit mode.
The computer might automatically ask you if you want to download the video.
If not, open the movie maker and select record/ capture video from device.
Rest should be self explanatory ...

Burning multiple mini dvd's to one dvd

if you have a pc and a video editing programme, you can make the 3 dvds into one by adding them individually as chapters directly from your camera. The programme i use is nero recode, you can download a trial version of this if you have no video editing programme.

JVC D3370U wont record to memory card (school project HELP!!!)

You have an option switch "MOVIE or STILLS", choose still option to take stills in your SD card. Yes you can freeze frames while viewing the downloaded contents from the computer, for which you need to work on video editing software, like MOVIE MAKER which is a built in application with Windows XP.
