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.

Time date stamp dcr trv140. I have this model. The date does not show in the view screen or on the audio output. Just wondered if any did on this model. Maybe I have a cheaper model.


From the 'Operating Instructions' manual:
"The recording date and time are not displayed while recording. however, they are recorded automatically onto the tape. To display the
recording date and time, press DATA CODE on the Remote Commander (remote control) during recording."

How to play tapes not recorded by Sony Handycam DCR-TRV130 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder


It is my understanding that the camera won't playback those formats, timecode or not. There are VCR type units for the HI8 and other formats. They should be cheap on eBay now...

Dear sir my sony Handycam model DCR-TRV285E,


Look at the rear end of the tape cass and if the red tag is over the hole this prevents movies being erased, just push tag over to expose the hole and your tape will (should) be okay and work again.
Be aware that if you pressed this tag over to stop recording, are you sure nothing is on tape you want to keep?

My camera does not show what i have taped


Regarding no picture in playback is problem mostly of dirty / clogged video head in Sony handy-cam and can be corrected by using good quality video head cleaning tape.
As far as memory stick picture concern, I think lost pictures (42)would be in other folder on memory stick.

Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20


There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks
