Can not find software to run my ccd-TRV138 camcorder on windows 7.can i be helped?

Sony CCD-TRV138 is analog video-8 camcorder that can not be hooked directly with computer because computer needs digital data file where as this camcorder is an analog and has no digital file format.

If you want to transfer CCD-TRV138 movies in computer, you need to convert its analog Audio-Video signal into digital format then save it in computer for further process/ edit etc.

Hook CCD-TRV138 with DVD Recorder in AV Input and burn a DVD, this process will convert analog movie into digital data format, put that CD in your computer and copy-paste files in computer.
Hope this info will help you.

Discs will not play back on dvd

What DVD's are you using +R/RW -R/RW some formats may not work especially on non-branded media some DVD players wont even play CD-R but will play some CD-RW of the correct brand.

I suggest that you try your finalized DVD in your PC then create an image using ImageBurn then burn the image onto a branded media and try again. Most firmware on DVD burners are very forgiving and will support a wider range of manufacturers and formats.

Hope this helps, you might want to look on your DVD players website for updated firmware you will need a blank CD and create a update disc using your computer.

Can I replace the hard drivein my Dish 522 receiver?

That's a yes and no question. Yes you could do your own install if you actually own it or you don't care about voiding the warrenty. More than likely, I'm thinking that if it's an internal hard drive then your going to need to let the manufacturer reinstall the hard drive so that you will not void the warranty. If you don't care about the warrenty then you can.

Sony DCR DVD101 Format Error

I had the same problem, but I didn't have any valueable data on the DVD-RW (which was a Sony brand disc, go figure...). So, I backed up all the videos on the disc, tried to format the disc to get it ready to be able to be used again, and got the whole "Access Error" when I was formatting the disc. I tried both the VR and Video format options, the Video option came back with teh "Access Error" while the VR option came back with "Format Error". I put the disc into my DVD burner in my computer and was going to try and format it manually. But, as the disc popped up in My Computer and I right-clicked on the disc icon, there were no options to format the disc, which is unusual. I tried it in a laptop that's about a year old (versus the other computer which was about 4 years old), and as I right-clicked on the disc, an option was entitled "Erase this CD-RW". Obviously this was not a CD-RW, but I tried it anyways, and bam, after about half a minute, the mini DVD-RW was formatted! After that, I put it in the Handycam DCR DVD101 drive, formatted it using the Video setting (my preference), and now it works.

So, moral of the story is...try and format the disc manually on a DVD burning enabled computer. If it doesn't work, try a newer computer. But that's all I have, hope this helps!

I want some feedback for DVD Camcorders.

My non-authoritive answers are: 1. Can the DVD-R be played on the Camcorder without finalisation? I'll write no. This is based on one comment by an user plus numerous experiments with DVD+R, DVD+R/W and such formats. 2. Does the DVD-RW / DVD-RAM need a finalisation ? Can the DVD-RW / DVD-RAM be played back on the camcorder/DVD Players/Computers without finalisation ? Based on my experiments with DVD recording and the 3 DVD players I have in the lab, the answers are yes and no in that respective order. 3. Can the DVD-RAM be played in the camcorder and output recorded in a standard VCR Casette ? The media played in the camcorder but placing the media in the VCR doesn't work since it's a phyical media issue. 4. Can the DVD-RAM/DVD-RW be played in the camcorder and the output captured in a computer and then burnt back on the DVD-RAM/DVD-RW or Computer CD/VCD ? Sure, but my method skips the play and re-capture. The files on the media are just placed into the DVD creation software and a new DVD is recorded.
