Re: Sony digital 8

You need some hardware to transfer the tape digitally to your computer. I use a cheap device from Best buy that ran around twenty bucks. It has software with it and everything. Basically its a device that has RCA ports and an S-Video port on one side and connect to the computer through USB. Its kinda a headache cause you have to play the Digital 8 tape through the hardware on to the computer and save it as a MPEG. Then you can put it on a flashdrive or email it to people. Much easier just to get a digital video camera if you have the funds.

Before you seek a repair, make sure you have the settings correct to record audio. Some Sony settings allow to record video+audio, video only, audio only.

Which memory card required for the DCR TRV340E

Hi George - Your camera uses proprietary Sony Memory Sticks. Below is a chart of the exact sticks supported. Being an older device it is not capable of using the newer larger memory cards.

How do I get Handycam DCR-DVD305 to recod videos onto a memory stick duo pro?

It is not possible to record the videos onto a Memory Stick Duo or Pro Duo, as this Camcorder DCRDVD305 does not support video recording onto the Memory Stick.
To record the videos you may use 8cm DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+RW.

Sony Handycam Dig 8 doesn't recognize tape when trying to record

If it has memory stick, Make sure your memory stick is in. Your memory stick is full. Delete the unwanted pictures from the memory stick or use a differnt biger memory stick.

I looked in the manual. It seems your camcorder does not have a slot for memory stick. But you may still save pictures on the tape. Here is the link to download the manual

Please read Page 40 "recording picture on the tape".

GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Video recording shuts down after 15 seconds

I just looked at my Sony DCR-TRV30. Not the same, but perhaps similar. My camera records lengthy videos on tape and only brief videos on memory stick. I suggest that you stick to tape for video.
Good Luck

DV Cassettes vs Memory Stick

Well, I went to The Sony site and what I found out was that currently this camera is only ceritfied for a 512mb stick. It does say what the qualiy is the memory stick is E-mail mode with a resultion of 160x112 pixels. The TAPE mode is DV quality or 740X480 pixels. Try recording both ways and see what looks better when you play it back on you TV or PC then decide.
