My computer isn't letting me import the data.


In order to connect your camcorder to your computer, and download your pictures or videos, you have to install the drivers for your camcorder and windows Operating system before you connect your comcorder to your computer. Here are the steps in sequence to install the drivers.

1- Use the CD which came with your camcorder and install the drivers.
2- After installing the drivers, Connect your camcorder to your PC and turn the dial to play (Turn on the comcorder if not on).

Follow the screen until it says ready.

3- Now click start, then computer. You should see several icons with one of them having all or part of Sony DCR-TRV16E Mini DV Camcorder. If you double click on that icon, you would see one or more folders with your stored pictures and videos. Now you can download, copy delete all of them.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No video


In camera mode if you look through the lens and have a black picture with the message lens cap on and you see that the iris is opening up and there are no bad connections to the ccd then the imager is suspect. Your snowy playback picture problem may just require a clearing however.
