Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV18E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi all, merry Christmas and a happy new year.
We've had our Sony Handycam DCR-TRV18E for quite a while but are very basic users (put tape in, turn on and record, chrage battery & replace tape).
This Christmas, we have been trying to be more adventurous by using a USB cabke to record using MS Movie maker. It was easier than I thought to set up and capture thru our Sony, but it goes to sleep mode after about 4 to 5 minutes and that stops the capture! Then it takes me time to get it all up and running agin for another 3 or 4 minutes of recording... very frustrating.
Going thru the Operating instructions was no help. What recommendations do you have to overcome this issue? I'd like to be ablke to record direct to my PC without having to shell out vast summs of $$ to get a working solution - am I flogging a dead horse or is there a simple slution?
I'd appreciate your assistance.
