VL-Z3 will not record video

Having the same problem. I got this from a friend who also gave me a blank cassette. I could record on the cassette without any problems, but when it comes to using a memory card, it said the same thing. First it said Format Memory Disk, which I already did. Then when I tried to record, it says Please Use Photo Button. My son's graduation is coming up in 12 hours and I still haven't found a solution!! If someone could enlighten us on how to fix this, it will be greatly appreciated.

I woul like to put all my digicam recordings onto dvds

You should either download video to a computer (using firewire/IEE1394 connexion), then use a video editing software to build DVD films, or a direct firewire to DVD software (no editing, just dump the video on a disk). This is a bit difficult if you are not accustomed with computers, and takes some time if you want to have nice results. An over possibility is with new home DVD recorder / player, much have now a firewire/IEE1394 input that lets you download atomaicaly from your camcorder to a DVD or the internal Hard drive if the player is equiped with. This last seems to be the best for you if you just want to save your video for further visionning, and don't want to du "cut and paste job" that would be made possible with video editing soft on a computer. Then you should look for a home DVD recorder, and be sure to have it with a IEE1394-Firewire input. I hope this will help.

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

Try Browsing the folders I Hope your footage is in one of those folders.
To Make It easier Goto Folder options click detail for folder check dates for the shooting time & open those 1st also if the camcorders timer is not set right may look in folders day earlier. Also look for big files Dvd takes lot of space.

Belive you are not being given chance to record or finalize becuse camcorder automaticaly did so. Rarely but it happens when a disk will have errors on it & when it finalzies you can lose info/footage.
Why I still prefer tape.

Sony DCR-DVD403 camcorder - picture won't focus. E:61:10 error.

E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.

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 ...

DVDs are encoded in NTSC or PAL but not both it seems. And you will run into band issues as you transcode from one format to the other. On the surface it seems the store did a poor job of education.
