Question about Sony DCR-TRV285E Digital-8 Digital Camcorder
No matter what I try, i keep getting the darn...re-insert the cassette message can you please help me too.
marc I have the same problem. It only developed after using tapes other than the original. The non original tapes were accepted for a while, then for no known reason I keep getting the 'reinsert cassette' message.
When I go back to the original tape I have no problem.
This is a major product fault as the manual says it will accept any standard digital 8 tape.
Sony is notorious for brand specific the same can be said for their mavica series cameras that can use any mini-disc. unfortunately the best solution is to stay with sony tapes
