Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD200E DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Need to permanently delete video

I purchased a Sony Handycam DCR-SX40 a couple of days ago but have decided that I don't want to keep it and will return it. I've deleted the videos I shot from the internal memory, but I want to make sure that I've permanently deleted and that no one will be able to bring it back up once I return the camera. Is there some other place than just deleting it through the prompts on the screen that I should go to to make sure it's deleted (you know how even once you delete something on a computer it still goes to the recycle bin and then you have to delete it from there too)?
Thank you!

In this case, I suggest that you format the Internal Memory of the Camcorder using the Camcorder as follows:

Touch HOME -> Manage Media -> Media Format -> touch the recording Media to be formatted[INT. MEMORY] or [Memory Stick] -> YES -> YES -> OK.

Formatting the Internal Memory or Memory Stick will delete all the data saved in the Internal Memory or in the Memory Stick.

You may also refer the page # 36 in the Manual of the Camcorder for more information about this.

Please download the manual (Operating Guide) of the Camcorder from this link:

Hello i have accidentily deleted a video from my camcorder (sony dcr-sx40) without transfering it to my laptop. how can i recover this video from the cam corder directly ?? thanks


In this case you may need video recovery software, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photo and music files.
Connect your camcorder (memory card or hard disk) to your computer with such recovery program installed, and then start to recover. Take the trial version first,

Video Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Video Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

A Tip: Before your videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card or stick in case the original files(your videos) are overwritten.

Lcd works as do all the hard buttons but nothing happens when I try to use the buttons on the touch screen(DCR-SX40)


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Sony dcr-sx40. Restore deleted movies from the camera hard drive


The answer is YES if you take care. Do it as follows.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

First things first: DO NOT take any more movies with the hard drive(within your camcorder) that you want to recover movies from. Because if you take any more files or save any data to your hard drive, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the HD to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive".

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your movies with this software called Wondershare Photo Recovery (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link(the program also recover MOVIES and music files):

Photo Recovery for Windows (if you are running Windows OS)
Photo Recovery for Mac (for Apple Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your cam(hard disk) until you can recover the files safely!

Sony Handycam DCR-SX40 My sound doesn't match my Video


I don't believe there's a setting for this. I suggest saving -closing the program then re-opening it. You can also try some different upload methods. Hope that helps.
