Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV260 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Can I use my Sony dcr-trv260 to record straight to an external hard drive? The camera records in excellent quality, however I have trouble transfering the tapes to dvd. This would work better if I could just record to a hard drive and then burn to dvd. Is this possible. I hate to buy new camera when the quality is so good with this one.

Yes you are so right, that type of camera the digital 8 (I have the 340) of your model and none of these new platic cameras today will beat it on build or picture.
But the problem with downloading to your hard-drive on the PC is that it will need to be pluged into your PC for it to work, so where would you plug it in camera? but honest if you buy the right type of DVD disks say the Verbatim type pack of 10 around £14 and you use the Firewire cable (NOT USB) to download your movies then you will have no problems. Some DVD recorders on the PC do not like the -r so do get + R types, I always get great results.
Take care, let me know okay? if I can help I will..
Cheers,
David

I WANT TO RECORD LIVE TV DIRECTLY ON THE HARD DISK OF MY SONY HANDYCAM DCR- SR68. HOW TO DO IT?


Put your camcorder on a stale support like a tripod, point it at your TV screen, and press the START/STOP button to start recording.
Seriously, the DCR-SR68 is a video camera, not a video recorder. It can record video through the lens and then play them back, either on its own screen, a computer, or a TV. It cannot record from an external video source.

Blue screen on playback. No picture and no sound...


Blue screen indicates no signal. Rewind the tape or make a recording to check it's not something this simple.

Hello, I have the sony dcr-trv260 and it will play back video and sound, and record sound, but will not record video. It is just black in both the lsd screen and the smaller one.


Did you examine to see if the lens cover is on?
If it is on remove it. If it is off,you need to go in the menu and select record instead of play.

Camera will not record


Contact Sony at 1-800-222-7669.  Mine was doing the same thing and it is a weak link in the DCR-TRV460 and DCR-TRV260.  They are sending me a shipping label and say they will fix it for free.
