I think the key is telling you that the video card is locked/ write protected. Assuming its an SD card. Take it out of the camera and look at the left hand side, there should be a notch that you can slide up and down, move it to unlock. If the notch is broken, cover it with a small piece of tape. Rather like we used to with cassette and VCR tapes.

If its not the card, then you may have photo/file protection switched in on your camera, you'll have to go throught the menu settings.

How do i access my Sony vaio webcam


Sony's Vaio laptop computer line includes the company's Motion Eye webcam and ArcSoft WebCam Companion software for Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Located in the LCD screen's upper bezel, the webcam is positioned at face-level when seated at the computer and automatically tracks movement to keep subjects within the lens's field of view.

1.Click on the "Start" menu at the bottom left corner of your screen, choose "All Programs" at the bottom of the menu just above the search box.
2.Scroll through the program list until "ArcSoft WebCam Companion" is located. Alternatively, you may type "WebCam Companion" in the search box to locate the program.
3.Click on the WebCam Companion icon to open the program. The program window will open, offering choices of Capture, Record, Monitor and Edit. Capture is used to take still pictures individually or in a series, Record is used to record videos, Monitor records videos when motion is detected and Edit allows editing of previously recorded videos.
4.Choose the webcam function you wish to use by clicking the icon. The appropriate screen will open, activating the webcam and displaying the camera view on-screen. The on-screen view will display what is within the field of the webcam lens, allowing you to adjust the LCD screen or your position before beginning webcam functions.
5.Click the webcam function according to the mode you have chosen. Functions in Capture mode include Capture or Burst, Record in the Record mode, Monitor in the Monitor mode and Snap Shot or Edit Video in Edit mode. When you have completed your webcam activity, the program automatically saves your video or snap shot within the program to be accessed, viewed or edited at a later time.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.com

How do i change the camera on the computer to video instead of picture?


the video mode is only working when you activate it on a recording mode The AMcap from the start all programs does that ..
when you open it from My computer ..all it does is taking picture...
you can also use the recording mode from the windows movie maker (a windows built program present in all programs ) ...and all you have to do is choose import from ...cam ..(webcam) ..
also the video mode is automatically activated when you use it in a instant messaging program like windows live messenger or yahoo messenger ..or skype...in these cases is activated from the program itself..
You can use it in almost al capturing programs ..if you want to make a video capture...but ..either AMcap..(video capture) ..or windows movie maker ...will do the job just fine..

Blurry video recording


Since the camcorder returns to the auto shutter setting and the auto exposure setting when it's switched into Night Capture mode, I would say that might be your problem.  Change your shutter and exposure settings. To do this, switch to Camera mode, turn the menu dial to the setting you wish to change then press enter.  You may have to play with the settings until you get the desired picture. Remember, faster shutter speeds for faster action (stop action), and longer exposure settings for darker situations. Let me know if you need more help.

I cant find the webcam icon


Use ACER Arcade application.
From User manual:
"Acer Arcade allows you to capture and record video clips from other external
devices, such as a DVD player or camcorder.
Click Capture Device on the video page and then select the source you are using
for your video input. There is a choice between "S-video" and "Composite."
To capture a video clip, you then need to click the red record button in the
onscreen controls.
The destination folder can be set from the "Settings" menu.
Clicking on Advanced and selecting Settings allows you to set the quality of the
video captured. You can choose from "Good," "Better" or "Best." Selecting a
higher quality results in a larger file when capturing video clips.
Snapshot
Snapshot mode is available in Cinema, Video and TV modes. This function can
be used to capture the onscreen image at any time."

How tu use video recording..


Hi,

The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

Windows Movie Maker


A lot of times Dazzle provides a calibration program for video and sound. See if you can run that.

There usually is a seperate audio capture control. If you go to your sound mixer and check the recording settings, is the audio capture from the Dazzle selected?
