The videos can only be stored in the Tape used. The Memory stick is used only for storing still pictures. No option of storing the videos in the Memory stick.

You can't make the DCR-HC42 work with an SD card. This camcorder uses DV tapes, or Memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick Pro Duo memory cards.

I have a DCR-HC42, when I connect it to my laptop thru Firewire (I have Vista). The size of the video is too high. How to download the video from the camcorder in a normal size.


Video downloaded from your camcorder is in .AVI format. One cassette size in AVI format is around 14 gb. Video cannot be downloaded in smaller size. After tranferring video to your computer, you can save or convert to any other format of smaller size eg mp4 or DivX or Xvid.

Transfer the video from my Mini DV to PC


If you have a dvd recorder, you can hook up the cam to a recorder if it has rca jacks on the end of the cable.
Or if your handycam has a memory card slot, record straight to memory card or transfer memory to memory card, then place it in a computer with an sd memory card slot.

Transferring video to PC


Most of the time the camera has to be powered off then on again for the computer to pick it up. you can also try connecting it to a capture card and saving the files that way.

Also make sure there is no ! on the device itself and make sure all drivers are installed.

I am sure some of these tips will help thanks for using fixya!

SONY camcorder DCR-HC42 color stripes


Try with the side display closed. Does the viewfinder show the pix OK? If so, then the problem is isolated to the LCD display. There is a small ribbon cable between the camera body and the LCD that sometimes gets a small crack in it. Replacing the cable usually fixes the problem.
