Took me a lot of cursing, and it's very simple. On your camera's screen there are 2 options saying "USB Connect". Only when you look really closely do you see that the 1st one is for the hard disk and the second is for a memory card. I expect you are using the wrong one..I was!

Hadn't seen the error message before and connecting to the computer used to work fine a year or so ago. Just got back from holidays and decided to download. That's when the "unable retrive management information" message appeared and when I clicked OK the program closed.
I am using a Toshiba with 6 USB ports. 2 on left side & 4 on right. I was getting the error till I swapped the cable to the right side low socket closest to me.
So the solution was simply to swap the USB cable to another port and of course make sure you press the correct USB button on the screen of the camera.

Maybe it’s too late to post this suggestion. Anyway it might be helpful for someone who is in the same situation as me. I was getting an error message because I kept pressing a wrong button on my camera.
When you connect a USB cable to your computer on the LCD screen of your camera you will see four buttons (icons) USB CONECT, USB CONECT, PRINT, and DISC BURN. First two icons look almost the same. There was my mistake. One of them refers to a HD of your camera but another one refers to Memory card of you camera. If you hit not an appropriate button you will get a message "unable to retrieve management information"

Sir, E31 error suddently happend in my SONY Handycam, Model: DCR SR85, 60GB HDD, all my datas are losed, how I can recover the recorded data? when I am on vacation with my relatives in my native...


You can recover lost photos,videos from memory card or memory stick of your camcorder with this
1. Do not save any new photos and videos into the memory card or memory stick.
2. Connect the memory card or memory stick with computer. You should see it shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is Tenorshare Data Recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)
http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm
4. Install and open the program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your lost photos and videos.

Dont know how to transfer tape from digital vide recorder tape to computer.


If you use the Sony Digital Handycam DCR-TRV350 then you may want to download your videos you've captured to your computer. Is this what you mean with your problem right?



When you downloaded your video, you will be able to use the videos on your computer.. If you want to download the videos you need to use the USB cable and installation disc that came with your camera. This is how to do it:


    1. Insert the HandyCam software disc that came with your device. Select "HandyCam" then "USB Driver" when the wizard appears. Install the camcorder's drivers. Repeat this step with each piece of software on the disc. Each program needs to be installed separately.

    2. Connect your camcorder to your computer via USB. The driver configuration wizard will appear. Follow the on-screen instructions to finalize setup.

    3. Click "Start," then "My Computer." Double-click the camcorder from the list of peripherals. From here, you can download all available data on the camcorder to your computer.

I have sony dcr-hc30e -handi cam, am not able to copy the pictures/video from my cassette in to PC , please help me if any software to download thanks in advance regards raju


If you need to transfer your files from this handycam to your computer, the first thing you will need is the usb data cable. This will let you transfer the files.

But in order for the computer to recognize your handycam it will need a special software or driver. This driver can be download from this site.
http://www.nodevice.com/driver/DCR-HC30E/get39785.html
(to download: enter the verification code in the box and click Download. Wait for a few seconds to start downloading, if fails click the link)

Once completely downloaded install this driver to your computer.

You may need this user guide or manual for this. (In order to view this manual you will need and Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your system)

Connect the Handycam to the computer via usb data cable and let the computer read and found new hardware. Once a message appears " Your New Hardware Installed and Ready To Use appear" browse your explorer and look for the icon of the Handycam. Double click the icon and then you are ready for transfer.

Good luck.
Please comeback and give me some good ratings. Thank you for using Fixya.

Go to Handycam DCR-HC42E downloads for the drivers, according to their matrix it depends on the model of handycam and what OS you are running whether you got the software bundled with it or not
