Video management problem

I have not used my camera that much and have managed to lose the book already, nearly every time we record something it stops with the error message, "video management file is broken, to record/playback video, recovery is required".

Sounds like you need to "recover" the hard drive.

Only other option you can try is to reset the camera.

Is there a way a sony dcr trv310 can record directly to a san disc or hard drive/


It seams that this camcorder uses digital 8 media for storage ..and it does record digital ..so the transfer should not be a problem ..but it has no slot for any kind of external memory so the direct record to a external drive or flash is not possible ...but ..the way to upload the footage is simple and you just have to use a firewire cable ..and capture the footage on a video manager like windows movie maker..
The procedure is just like any other tape camcorder...just plug the cable ..let the computer see the camera ..and than use the video manager to import or capture the video while it is played back ..
If your operation system does not have a movie maker ..use the one recommended by Sony on the support site ..or any other which has the capacity to capture from device ..
The only way to capture directly to the computer's hdd is also with a video manager..but the camera needs to have the ability to stream ...To try it and see if it is able to ..just plug it with the wirefire...open the movie maker..and choose to capture from device and see if you have any image on the preview..If it does..it means it is capable to stream and capture in real time on the movie maker..than be saved as a video file on the hdd..

Can you please advise what video recording settings to use on my AG HMC 40PJU so that the videocamera will automatically adjust the light exposure entering the camera? I video a lot of stage plays and...


At the theatre prior to the performance, ask the lighting director to show you one of the brighter performance stage light configurations and allow you to set the camera's white-balance. (It's easier to deal with a little under-exposure in post production, than it is for over-exposure.) Then adjust the exposure accordingly during the performance.

Preparation/Planning: Either at home or in the theatre, if you practice setting the white balance and then adjusting the exposure for varying levels of light, with your camera connected to a video monitor, so you will see it more clearly in real time, it will help adjustments during filming the performance more fluid.

Also consider using a lens filter. Practice various combinations to see what suits different light levels and gels for best effects. When possible, if using a stand alone camera (not cabled into a control room set-up) I prefer using a video monitor for each camera person to give better ability to manage adjustments of camera settings as needed.

Error code E:31:00, hdr-xr100 camera. will not format, access harddrive, record, etc


The solution is very simple if your camera has a memory stick slot! For those who has any Sony camera with memory stick slot, try this:
1- Place the memory stick
2- Go to "Home" -> "Manage Media" (or something like that) -> And select the option to change to the memory stick, instead of HD.
3- Go to "Manage Media" again, then to "Format Media", so choose to format the HDD! - Now that you are running the camera from memory stick, you'll not have any problem to format the HD.
At least worked with me! I think it worths the try!

Lost files with camcorder everio gz-hd7


From my experience with Hard Drive based Camcorders.. you're best bet is to treat them like a computer.. use an application like Data Rescue II to recover the files from the camcorder.. once the files are recovered, reformat the HD on teh camcorder and you should be abel to start recording new footage again.

Broken video management file/ recording failure


Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.
