Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 120 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.

I searched under HDR-HC3 firewire driver and got the above link.

It says the following:

Hi..

The problem was a missing MSDV.SYS file.

Thanks

Actually, on the Sony site it says that no additional drivers are required to connect the camera in Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

But, the user of this camera and firewire noted that he was having trouble convincing windows of this.

External Microphones ??? Sony Handycam HDR-HC3 Digi Cam.


Sony is a company which does not want you to be free to buy the accessories of your choice. This is true with too many of their products.

The only option I know of is the option I went with:

External microphone produced by Sony itself. I purchased the shotgun microphone: http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=11038016&tab=featuresTab

You can see them all here, but be sure to put the model (HDR-HC3) in there to filter your actual options: http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&categoryId=8198552921644492284&N=4294966295&accessory=true#

I purchased mine on eBay for a better price and to avoid Sony.

One other thing I did is: I purchased a handheld, pocket-size voice recorder with a tie-clip microphone. Mine is an Olympus.

Doesn't play or record tapes. Get a C.30.41 error. Will load tape. Tried resetting.


dear

u need to rate me for that ..ok dude....

actuallythis error is related to Head assy. i.e, the (head)drum motor is not completing its fg in proper time. try to use cleaning tape 1 st and then play back your normal tape.

if the problem persists then u need to go to the near by service center as they will clean the head assy. manually.

Cant record


C32 error codes are usually cassette or tape transport related. Can you eject the tape? Try inserting a new tape to see if the fault is with the tape itself.

If this doesn't work, I suggest that you take your camera to a service centre.

Sony HDR-HC3 camera won't connect in HD mode in iMovie HD or FCP HD


What software are you using to capture the HD footage? Are you using the supplied software, or another package. It is likely that you have a software incompatibility. i.e. windows will recognise DV natively, but HDV requires specific codecs and software installed on your PC.
