Time and Date does not display after importing files to my computer

Hello, I can see my Time and Date when viewing the video file on the LED screen of my DCR-SR100. However after I transfer video to my computer (both a Vista and an XP) I can no longer see the time and date on the screen as the video plays. The Time and Date does display when I place the curser over the thumbnail of the video.

How do I get time date stamp to show on video footage taken with JVC Everio GZ-HD620

The AVCHD file contains the time date stamp as subtitle track. Any player that can show subtitles can show the time/date stamp (I use Videolan Player).

Usually, after downloading the avchd files to my computer, i do an OCR on the sub file and convert it to .srt, as well as conver the avchd into .mkv and include teh subtitle file into it.

We are making a sports highlight video. The video came off a Sony Handycam. We viewed the tape using the handycam to reference sports plays to edit using the time/date data in the lower left of the...

I use this information in photography, its caled EXIF Data, and basicaly is the internal information stamp in the pic (date, camera type, focus used, expsure range, etc, etc).

EXIF data on each movie clip recorded is stored in the accompanying .THM file which is a small JPEG thumbnail file of the first frame of the movie.

Force open the *.thm file with photoshop (or simply make a backup copy and change the extension to *.jpg) and read the EXIF via Ctrl+Alt+Shift+I.

I know that the video files also keep this information and could be vewer and modificated; try to check this software and apply it:

Additional details could find in this site:

Just one last personal recommendation: ALLWAYS, ALLWAYS keep some backup copy about your files.

Good luck.

Need to recover deleted videos from HDD

When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that tells the system where the data for those files is located. The area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new files to be written there instead.

So most of the time, you are able to get back deleted files from computer. You may try a free data recovery software to view deleted files so that you know whether the deleted files are recoverable.

One I used to use is asoftech data recovery program which you can download from site below

How do I transfer the mini DVD to Movie Maker

With your Recorded DVD-R Disc "Finalized", and in the DVD player on your computer, you should be able to browse to your videos with Movie Maker.

In MovieMaker, on the left side where it lists:
Movie Tasks
1. Capture Video
Capture from Video device
Import video . . .

You want to "Import Video", by clicking that and browsing to the DVD-R to find what could be MPG files, or VOB files. They're both MP2 DVD format video and audio files.

Tip: Right Clicking in the Import Video Dialogue Box where the files are listed and selecting View / Thumbnails, will present a view of the scenes in each video.

Transferring footage to pc

First plug in your USB cord to the comp and you'll see the options play on pc, pc connection, etc. Select CREATE DVD! (You won't be able to see or select any of the files you are going to import, oh well.) You should see the regular screen pop up that says import, create, view pictures. Click IMPORT PICTURES. It will automatically import both pictures and video. For file name write something you can easily locate, ex: AAAAAAAAAAAAAA (you can change it later) Then open MOVIE MAKER. Click on IMPORT on the upper left hand corner and you'll see their demo video listed. Click on picture and video files on the bottom right hand corner and select ALL FILES. You should see what was downloaded!!! YAY!! I haven't burn a DVD yet but the files are there and the program should do it from there!

DAte/Time stamp

I was having the same problem, and was tasked to find a solution at work.

I ended finding talking with a developer who wrote a custom utility that can extract the time/date data from the .MPG (it's hidden in there somewhere) as a special txt file.

Here's a link to that utility: (special version for NTSC footage): (Special thanks to fnx91 on the videohelp forums)

Then you import that file into a piece of software called DVSubmaker which will convert that data in a special format (.sub) used by certain DVD/Video players to display subtitles.

Here's the best 2 options for playback:

1. Windows Media Player (need Mpeg2 codec) combined with a plugin called Vobsub - Free:)
2. ZoomPlayer (DVD Software) - $60

So in a nutshell, your displaying the original time/date stamp as subtitles on top of the video.

Contact me if you have any troubles.

Problems with .MOD and .MOI files

Actually, converting the .mod file to .avi or .mpg is not sufficient. The corresponding .moi file contains date/time stamp info. as well as some resolution/aspect ratio info. There is a free utility at the following link:;id=153
that does a really good job at converting the .mod/.mov files into .mpg files properly.

Data code problem pleeeeeeese heeeelp......

Here are some programs that might help you with your problem : DV Sub Maker (Freeware) from Mike Laba aka Krong makes DVD subtitles from DATECODE in SUB or SST format which can be used in Scenarist and ReelDVD. DV Date Time Changer can change the DATECODE. And the test version of Play DV shows the DATECODE when playing DV AVI files. See DV Date, (old name DVRecDate) a shareware Adobe Premiere plugin from Ilia Topolnitski stamps DATECODE in videos. A DVD Subtitler (also shareware) exists too! See
