Buy an a/v cable($15-30) and a dvd recorder($50-100).

Some dvd recorders allow you to change type of recording.

Then you can play, record or copy your dvd on the computer.

there are also free conversion programs you can download, to convert to different types of video.

I don't know this exact model, therefore this will be generic.

There should be an A/V output on your camera. You will require an A/V capture card and software installed on the computer. You will need the A/V cable set that is compatible to go between the computer and the camera.

If the camera has a fire-wire output which most all the new ones now have, you will need to install a fire-wire card and the necessary software on to the computer to read videos from your camera.

If your computer is too old, or too slow, or does not have adequate resources and RAM's, it will not be able to handle the video from your camera. Make sure your computer will be compliant before running out and buying the extra hardware and software to do this with your computer.

Sony ccd TRV108 NTSC does sound recording only black screen in viewfinders and lens cap is off. thanks battery charged dclee4@telus.net thanks


On these camcorders the "RCA" video jack is a switching jack. This is so the cam will record from an ext video source instead of live video. Try exercising this switching lack by repeatedly plugging in and unplugging an rca video cord. This may be a solution to your problem.

I have a sony Handycam videoHi8 camcorder, my problem is that it


Try using different tape or a new tape in the Camcorder.

Clean the video heads using the Sony V8-25CLD cleaning cassette.

You may also try pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds to reset all the settings in the unit to the factory defaults.




Good luck!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

Picture shakes when I zoom


I don't know how you can easily tell the spec for the anti-shake is working on your camera. There is a specific specification for how much it can compensate. There is a factory spec that specifies that with a specific lens magnification ratio, the camera can be moved a specific number of arc-seconds and display within a specific amount of movement error. At home it would be impossible to do a technical evaluation of this feature.

What you can do as a user is to read the instruction manual about the option and see how to make sure that it is turned on in the camera's menu section. It is possible that your model may not have the feature. This you have to check in the spec sheet that came with the camera.

When the anti-shake is turned on, you should see the picture appear to be more stable than when it is turned off. With high zoom settings, it will be less stable looking than with wider angles of zoom. It does have its limitations.

Professional photographers normally don't like the anti-shake feature for shooting videos. For still pictures it is a good feature if you want this type of performance. This is because with moving video taping when the camera is being panned in small motions, the smoothness of the pan is taken away. The stabilizer starts to work at the beginning of the pan and then it gives out in sort of stepping actions. This can create a sort of jerking type of pan motion in the pictures.
