SOURCE: imovie imports Hi8 tape but not plain 8 tapes

What it is, is the standard 8mm tapes are not digital, and therefore won't import into imovie, unless you have the 8mm to Hi8 option enabled in playback mode, by setting it in the menu, under playback settings.

You need a FireWire cable and a computer with FireWire port. I have same camara - it comes with a base unit into which you have to plug in the camara. From that base unit connect the firewire cable (4pin) and take that to your computer which may have a firewire port (either 6pin or 4 pin) - depending on what kind of firewire port you have on the computer, you have to get appropriate cable ... it is my understanding that the camara doesn't come with this cable. I purchased a firewire cable with 4 pin connecter on both ends to connect to my IBM laptop with Vista on it. It works great after all this setups. It does not work with a USB cable for some reason.

I'm not able to view and transfer my video films on the computer


How are you trying to make them communicate, are you using a USB?
If so make sure you select the proper action when your PC prompts you. Transferring and playing are two distinct things, that is to say, sometimes you may be able to transfer a file to something but, that file may not play due to compatibility.

I have a Sony DCR-SR43 handycam. I am a amateur photographer. When i shoot some shots, the file size is very large (208 or so..). Is there any software to compress the file.


The size of the file depends mostly on the resolution. Higher resolution gives more detail and the picture can be printed larger without showing pixelation, but this requires more data, so the files are larger. Recent cameras offer resolutions stated in terms of 10 or 14 megapixels. That much data needs a large file to store it. Reducing the resolution in the camera settings to 5 or 3 megapixels (or less) will give you a much smaller file. In the camera, this will usually be specified in terms of pixels wide by pixels deep (e.g. 1600x1200).

You can reduce the size of a picture in a photo editing program (resize or resample), which will also reduce the resolution.

Compressing the file is not likely to help much. Usually these files are in a format (.jpg) that is already compressed. The camera may allow more than one quality of compression. You can set this to compress the pics more, but this will reduce the quality of the image and introduce more digital noise. It is also possible to increase the amount of compression when saving an edited file in a photo editor, by specifying this at the point of saving. None of these will make as large a difference as reducing the resolution by resizing.

Resulting mp3 files are HUGE


Are you certain that you're recording in MP3 format?That large file size seems much like .wav files than .mp3 thing.


But if that's really .mp3 file,you may need to adjust the bit rate&sampling rate.Typically, 12 kbps and 44.1 KHz would be a good starting point.


And about shrinking files you've already done,try file convert software(s) around the web(try Google it).Too many of them to recommend here.But I personally use Wavepad Sound Editor for record,edit and save files in various format.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
