Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc

SOURCE: sony handycam DCR-DVD608 Error E:61:00

Had this error E:61:00 on my DCR-DVD650. I took it apart and found a panel about 1" x 0.25" that exposed the motor that drives the zoom. Played with it a little until it started working again. Put it back together and I'm working again...time will tell.
Little tricky getting apart, but not too bad. There's a panel right against the body inside the door with display--where the SD Pro card goes--which pops right out. Need to do this to disconnect ribbon cables.

Buffer over flow movi recording time

The error description is not very precise. Anyway:
You should check the Harddisk for Filesystem errors/defective blocks. Don't know if the Camcorder has a built-in function for this. It could also help to delete all data and to reformat the drive.

Otherwise you may need to replace the harddrive (While you are at it, you could put the drive into an external USB cage and check it with your computer). Sounds like a complicated task.

Windows XP. connect DCR-SR68E. XP asks for driver. and fail install

These handycams are newer models packed with technology. While windows XP is an old windows and would not have its driver by default. If you have got a Disk with the Cam, insert that into the Drive and try to install driver from there. If you haven't, then you will first have to remove the defaulted driver and then download a new driver to run with it.
To uninstall the defaulted driver follow the steps:
  • Click on Start
  • Go to Control Panel
  • Double click on Device Manager
There you will see a yellow question mark for the driver of the cam coder. Right click on it and click in install. Then try connecting the Camera again and installing the driver. It if doesn't work, let the windows search in online for you. If it still doesn't work, try to find the driver for the camera on the Sony's site for your particular Cam.
