Question about Sony Cameras

1 Answer

I apparently over-filled a 3.5" DVD-R disc with my Handycam Model 405 as the "finalized" program did not complete the process. Now I cannot access the valuable video files nor can I "unfinalize" so that I can delete several clips to make room. Is there any way I can retrieve the files through Nero, Picture Package, Microsoft or some other DVD player program?

It sounds like the lens. I know this is actually a problem many people are having with different models of handycams. Try taking a q-tip and use 91% alchohol (rite aid, cvs, walgreens, etc) then clean the lens. Depending this may or may not work. The only permanent solution is to change the lens altogether.

Transfer/Convert Sony HDR-CX150 AVCHD MTS Movie to Apple ProRes for Final Cut...


Transfer/Convert Sony HDR-CX150 AVCHD MTS Movie to Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro on Mac <br /><br />Sony Handycam HDR-CX150 is listed as one of the best home movie camcorders by Lori Grunin, senior editor from CNET.com. However, people are not giving a high credit for this camcorder. Just like Lori puts it in her review for Sony CX150: "Its small size and attractive price might draw you to the Sony Handycam HDR-CX150, but this bare-bones camcorder just barely delivers on the promise of HD quality." <br /><br />For many Mac users, editing AVCHD footage on Final Cut Pro is not very pleasant with many problems & frustration, though Final Cut Pro 6.0.1 claims to give native AVCHD support. In the guide, I will share with you how to batch convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS videos to Apple ProRes format for smooth editing in FCP without rendering. <br /><br />Featured <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Camcorder Software for Mac OS X</a></b> - <b>Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac</b> <br />Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac, a useful camcorder software program for Mac OS X, make it easy to capture AVCHD videos from camcorder, edit in Timeline for joining/cutting/splitting MTS/M2TS files, AVCHD lossless output for HD memories on TV, export to Final Cut or iMovie with provided Apple ProRes codecs & Apple Intermediate Codec, or share the fun online. <br /><br /><b>Highlights of Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac</b> <br />- Full HD support for AVCHD, TOD, MOD camcorders <br />- Support merging/spitting AVCHD without conversion <br />- Convert camcorder footage to Apple ProRes, AIC, Avid DNxHD Codec <br /><br /><b>How to <a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/mac_convert_sony_hdr-cx150_avchd_mts_to_prores_for_editing_in_final_cut_pro/">Transfer/Convert Sony CX150 AVCHD to Apple ProRes</a> on Mac OS X</b> <br />Learn how to convert AVCHD MTS or M2TS files to Apple ProRes codec via Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac with Sony CX150 as an example in the guide. <br /><br />Step 1. Import AVCHD MTS from CX150 to program. <br />There are two ways to import AVCHD videos to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. <br /><br />- Capture AVCHD videos from CX150 camcorder <br /><br />If you choose to import videos directly from camcorder to the program, first of all, please turn on Sony CX150 and connect it to your Mac via USB cable. Launch Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac and follow camcorder wizard to import videos to the program. Imported Sony mts files will be shown on Camcorder Tab of the program. <br /> <br />- Import AVCHD videos from computer <br /><br />If you have already transferred video footage from camcorder to your computer, you can browse the file path through "Add" icon. Then all AVCHD videos in the folder will show in Resource Tab of Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. <br /> <br />Step 2. <b>Join MTS clips into one for conversion</b>. <br />In order to join AVCHD mts clips of Sony CX150 into a complete movie, all you have to do is to <b>drag & drop AVCHD videos</b> from Camcorder Tab or Resource Tab to Movies Tab. During the process, a pop-out window will show as below: <br /> <br />Choose "Create A Single Movie" to merge Sony CX160 MTS clips into one movie. <br /><br />Step 3. <b>Convert AVCHD Movie to Apple ProRes</b>. <br />Click on Export and then choose "Export into Editor".

Less quality loss burning AVCHD to Blu-ray Disc on Mac with Final Mate and...


Author Sony NEX-VG10 AVCHD to Blu-ray with no re-encoding for Blu-ray Player <br />AVCHD playback solution for Blu-ray Player at Home-no transcoding on Mac <br /><br />I have Sony NEX-VG10 to shoot videos in AVCHD format, and I have a Blu Ray player (Panasonic DNP-BD60) connected to my TV. Even though, my iMac provides a 24" display, I prefer watching them on HDTV with the Blu-ray player. <br /><br />When looking for the straightforward solution without transcoding the footage, I got Final Mate for Mac and Adobe Encore CS5 to complete the process. There is less quality loss when burning <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">AVCHD to Blu-ray Disc on Mac</a></b>, as no re-encoding is performed at any stage. I used Final Mate to trim and join the m2ts files for lossless output, and then import into Adobe Encore CS5 to author the final blu-ray disk. <br /><br />Below is the quick guide for you to <b>Author Sony NEX-VG10 AVCHD to Blu-ray</b> with no re-encoding for Blu-ray Player. <br /><br /><b>Step 1. Import AVCHD clips to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.</b> <br />Aunsoft Final Mate can detect connected camcorder automatically. Here I show the video on my iMac. Go to the Resource tab, click the Add file path button to browse the folder with .m2ts files, and the related files will be listed on the Resource tab. <br /><br /><b>Step 2. Join M2TS into one file.</b> <br />As we do not want any re-encoding, we can select multiple files from the Resource tab, drag and drop to timeline. A single movie with several clips will be created for lossless output. To get another single file as a separate chapter for Blu-ray disc, just click the Create New Movie button, drag and drop files to the new movie ID. It is so easy to <b><a href="http://sony-mts-converter.com/2011/06/author-sony-nex-vg10-avchd-to-blu-ray-with-no-re-encoding-for-blu-ray-player/">lossless join m2ts files for blu-ray</a></b>. <br /><br /><b>Step 3. Export MTS movie without any loss in quality.</b> <br />Click the "Export" button, and then the OK button. The Mac lossless M2TS joiner for Blu-ray player and home entertainment will start merging the m2ts files without re-encoding. <br /><br /><b>Step 4. Import lossless created files to Adobe Encore CS5.</b> <br />Run Adobe Encore CS5, create menu for the Blu-ray disc, add the m2ts files to timeline, and then got to the Build tab to start burning/authoring the clips to a blank blu-ray disk. <br /><br />I may also try to author AVCHD DVD with Encore CS5 when needed. Hope you enjoy the <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">AVCHD playback solution for Blu-ray Player</a></b> at home with no transcoding on Mac.

Finalized a Sony DVD-RW in a Handycam and now it asks "Make the disc recordable? DVD menu will be deleted. Yes/No. Not sure what I want.


Hi.

The answer you want here is no. If you choose yes the Handycam will erase the data on the DVD-RW and get it ready for you to record on again. Now the disk is finalized thats the end of the burning process and the disk is done.

How to install the dvd?


Usually, inserting a dvd into your computer's dvd drive will start the autostart process and walk you through the installation process.
If auturun is disabled, open "my computer" after inserting your dvd and and select the disc, and then double-click the setup program. The program should walk you through the rest of the process.
If you do not have a DVD drive, it is recommended that you upgrade your computer system.

When recording two vhs tapes back to back on one disk, it will not finalize. But, will finalize if one tape is recorded. Mind you now each tape only has one half an hour recording on them, and the disk is...


The disc requires some space for the finalizing process. Two half-hour tapes take up all the room on the disc and leave nothing for the process. You'll need to record at a lower speed.

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video...


are you doing a finalize on your -r discs? if not finalized won't play in anything but camcorder-dvd can be finalized at any time-you should not lose your footage--rw can sometimes play in players w/out being finalized can also delete scenes and reuse-look for finalize in your playback menus
