Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV140E Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Hi I am trying to transfer videos from Sony Handycam to PC. The files transfer and are saved as .avi but neither REAL nor Quicktime will play them back. There are various versions of PAL listed on screen. PAL B, PAL D, PAL G, PAL H etc. Which version do I need to select? (On the tape it says "PAL 8".) Thanks Sam

As I know PLA is just for your TV, and when you watch it in your computer, you needn't pay attention to it. If Real Player or Quicktime can not replay it, you can try to use Leawo Free MP4 Converter to convert your video to MP4 format with H.264 code. Hope it can be useful.

Have you tried running the .avi video files in WMP (Windows Media Player)?
If that doesn't work. You can always convert the video files to Real or Quicktime formats.
Not sure if there are some free web sites that convert AVI Files.
If not, you could buy a lifetime subscription of one video converter for a low fee.
One good one is called MOVAVI.

Re: PAL Code selection. I think that it all depends in which region you're in so that you could playback the video on your TV via AV/Audio Cable.

Sony Vegas Movie studio 8.0 - I put in pictures, video and music, but only the music plays. No video or photos appear when I play the video


Because Sony Vegas support WMV, MPG (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4), MP4, MOV, ASF, SWF, FLV, etc. It doesn't support .avi format. So I want to know your video files format.

If ur video file format is .avi format or other video format that Sony Vegas doesn't support. We need convert AVI files into WMV, MPG, MP4, MOV supported by Sony Vegas. AVI to Sony Vegas is a good solution to import AVI to Sony Vegas for editing.

Video Converter Platinum is the most advanced AVI to Sony Vegas Converter software which can convert HD videos (inc.HD TS, HD MPG, HD MPEG, HD MP4, HD AVI), TOD, MOD, MTS, AVI (DivX, Xvid, etc.), QuickTime Video, 3GP, VOB, etc to Sony Vegas.

Hi There, I have got a DVD RW 8cm disc(recorded some video on SONY 105E DVD Camcorder) which i was not able to playback on my sony vaio laptop. Any solution to fix this problem,please


Your problem is most likely a format or codec problem.(you dont have the right one installed)
Download the free VLC media player here
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Its a free program that plays almost everything, without the need for downloading new codecs all the time.
If by chance this does not solve the problem, take note of the file extension of the file you are trying to play.
Google "extension + .avi" to find out what plays an avi file
google "extension +.mov" to find out that that is a QUICKTIME file.(which very well maybe as its very popular for movie cam formats)

If you dislike using VLC for some reason then you can buy and install the proper program to play the proper file kind *s* but VLC will play 99 % of files.

Thank you and good luck.*s*

How to save videos from sony handycam to my home pc


If I understand the user guide correctly, you can set the capture format in Preferences and have the captured video saved as MPEG1, there may be other options depending on what that version offers. If this is the only software you have to edit video, you must capture it first to have it saved to a folder of your choosing (usually set up in preferences). After that you should be able to use Windows Media Player or Quicktime to play back the file you captured. You can convert the MPEG1 files to another format if you want by using free software such as AVS Video Converter or other software.
