I'm probably retarded, BUT, no sound on my videos when play on computer
When I filmed these clips, the sound on playback was faint, but I figured it'd be better when I downloaded to my computer...I have an hr. recording time (black camera)...just got it...am I doing something wrong here?

Re: I'm probably retarded, BUT, no sound on my videos...
Sorry but you are not stupid, One of the biggest problems (if you check reviews on this device you will see this is true) is that the audio is very lacking in quality for this device. The only time it may work well is in small and quiet areas. The microphone isn't very good otherwise and so there is no real solution to fixing this except to have the company put a better microphone on it probably on the next model.
It is a very nice device but unless you can put a better microphone on it, it's not very good. You can try calling the manufacturer at the below number and see if they have options for putting a better microphone on but I don't think much can be done if any to solve this. Sorry for the bad news but that is the way it is.

Okay, ours is a different brand (JVC) but they may have some basic similarities in function. To playback video clips stored on the memory card, put the memory card in the card reader slot of the computer and put the files onto the computer. Playback the clips from your computer video or photo file. (Ours won't playback video stored on the memory card through the camera.) To playback video clips stored on the camera hard drive through the camera, we open the viewer screen, look at the function keys on the camera body, select the "Play" button.On the screen it displays thumbnails of the various video clips. We use the toggle/function key to select from the menu containing options for playback, edit, delete, protect, etc.
I had this issue on my work computer. Works fine on other computers, your computer probably has a lower spec video card that cannot comfortably handle playback of full hi definition video. Upgrade your video card.
First, make sure you have it on CARD (and not DISK), and on the "playback" (and not record) mode. Next, does the camera play back other video clips normally, but just not a specific clip ?
Does the selected video clip frame (index) shown on the LCD screen have a picture ? If not, i.e. it is blank (dark), then it is likely that no video was recorded (i.e. just the audio) when you were shooting that video clip.
If there is a picture (of the video clip frame index on the LCD screen) and only audio is playing, try downloading the clip (from the SD card) to your computer, or simply try to play the video on the SD card (inserted directly into your SD card reader on your computer, or via a USB SD card reader) and see if the video clip will play normally on your computer.
Hi If it's like my Canon MVX25i date and time marking then go to the menu, select display setup (or whatever it's called on your camera) somewhere there should be a dialogue which allows you to switch the pesky thing off. I have never used date or time, a very amateurish concept in the first place.
"About video clip files recorded with this camera You can use Apple’s QuickTime to play back video clips on a computer. Playback may be possible using other software that supports the ISO standard MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (AAC audio)."
Most digital HDD sony handycam video cameras encode MPEG-2 files in 5.1 surround sound audio. You probably are not hearing sound because your playback software does not support 5.1 surround sound encoded MPEG-2 files. Try using a newer peice of software with the latest codecs installed.
One possible cause is that normal recording could not be performed because the heads were dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads, and perform recording and playback again. If normal playback can be performed, the heads are clean. Before an important recording, be sure to conduct a test recording to make sure that normal recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning, the problem may be the tape. If so, try another cassette.
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be interrupted momentarily, but this is not a malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)
I'm not sure if this will work for you but, sometimes I try to play back some of my tapes and a blue or grey screen comes up instead, although this sounds odd, if I record something(for even one second) it will let me see my film. I know this can cause problems because you may end up taping over film but if it's the only way to see your film it's worth a try!
