    It's SwannEye HD. I can hear the audio when accessing it live. I just don't hear the audio when accessing the clips saved onto the SD card from when the motion detector is triggered. I'm using VLC media player, which is playing other videos fine with the audio. Also, audio input is enabled (under audio settings).

    Download gspot and check the file you will see no audio is attached to the file.

    What format is the file saved in mp3? mp4? avi? wma?

    Download gspot and load the file and check and see if there is an audio track present - if not then you know the camera isnt working properly.



    I would then perform a hard reset back to defaults.



    I suspect your camera is saiving in mjpeg format which doesnt include audio so you have to choose a different format if this is the issue - avi or mp3 if you can.



    What model is the camera?

It is obvious to me that the player can't read the video off an SD drive. In my experience that card slot is for installing updated firmware not video material.

Make sure that the video camcorder was not turned off immediately after recording before the images are saved in memory. Also be sure that your memory card is properly inserted in your camera.

This thing recorded video without audio.


No, sorry. This camera has a small glitch where it occasionally records video without sound, especially if it has been on for a while. In order to fix this, you can simply turn the camera off and on when it is recording without sound.

I am using an sd card when i hit the record button it says cannot record video on the model number DZ-GX5020


Sorry, but as far as I know, Hitachi camcorders cannot record video directly onto an SD card. You have to set the camcorder to DVD. It can only record video and pictures on a DVD, and only pictures on an SD card.

Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.


Audio Dubbing on DV: Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output. Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings. Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.
