Hello,
Make sure to install the correct drivers to your Mac computer and your Mac should be able to detect the Handycam upon connecting it and then you will have the option transfer files from it to your computer. You can try to check the disc that came with the Handycam if it supports Mac OS.

What can I do to convert Sony DSC TX55 1080p videos to new iPad?


I have an ipad 3 and I have collections of downloaded MKV videos converted to iPad 3 compatible video formats. The program I am using is PAVTUBE Video Converter which provides presets for iPad 1, 2 and 3. The output movies play perfectly in my iPad 3. In my experience, video quality is based more on video bitrate. So please set the bitrate of output ipad video as its original value to keep TX55 video intact quality. http://www.pavtube.com/video_converter/

Hi luismasramir ,

Seems to be the case where the battery is not fully recharged , Please follow the below steps :-

  1. Please make sure that you charge your battery fully , till the time you see an indicator for the battery being fully charged , or may be you see an icon in the display screen with the charge status.
  2. As far the 6.30 hr duration that you have mentioned, this duration reflects the time that you have left for total recording space on your disk or memory card depending on your current source for recording.
  3. The above duration is not to be confused with the battery usage time.
Hope his helps ...:)
