I have been putting up with the same problem for 6 months. I finally had had enough and ripped the camera to pieces. It turns out there is a design fault in all the cameras with electronics in the loading door. You see, to enable the device in the door to function, there needs to be wires feeding it. Those wires get "metal fatigue" after so many openings and closings and break off. So, when it happens, you need to learn to live without it, or bin it. Cheers.

Check the memory stick for a little slide lock on the side. Make sure that is not in the locked position. This feature is there to prevent people from recording over special memories, like weddings. But sometimes during handling (or just not knowing) people accidentally switch it to "lock"
You can't tie into the camera stored data without windows 7 software, so you will need to contact the product support website of the camera maker and ask if 7 software is available for the camera. Your old disk would not have worked, no software made for earlier versions of windows will work on the new Windows 7. That is why I have stuck with my XP Pro operating system. Did anyone bring this up when you purchased the new computer?
Check the following: Memory Stick is inserted in correct position and orientation in camcorder. Try re-inserting several times. Write-protect tab is switched to allow writing to memory stick (on back of memory stick) Memory Stick is formatted in FAT file system (this should already be done except if memory stick has been formatted in a computer in a different format) Memory Stick is not over the maximum capacity memory stick of the camcorder. Memory Stick is not full. Memory Stick is clean and dry. The dcr-trv320 is a 2000 yr. model and came with a 4mb capacity stick and can probably only use up to a 128mb capacity stick or possibly 256mb. Most memory sticks you can buy today are 1GB, 4GB, 8GB etc. memory stick pro duo. and are probably incompatible. E-Bay has some of the old memory sticks like the 128mb for sale. There is a slight possibility that static electricity discharge zapped the stick. Try another memory stick or try the stick in another device.
that means your camcorder is set to record on the disc not on the memory card. try to look on the settings on your camcorder there's an option fo you to choose like disc or memory card to be use as recording. hope that helps!
Unless somebody comes up quickly with a better solution for you, it may be an internal battery problem, especially if you keep having to set the time.
