Re: Video playback is not smooth while playing via USB...

USB1.1 port can generally handle transfer speeds approaching 5.5Mbps between PC and DVD Camcorder. Smooth playback of movies requires 5.5Mbps speeds or above. If the PC you are using has some compatibility issues with the USB driver software, the USB port may drop to speeds below 5.5Mbps causing short pauses during video playback. It is recommended to copy the movie file from the DVD Camcorder to the hard disc drive (HDD) on your PC, then playback the movie from the hard drive.

Are you playing the video directly form the hard disk in the camcorder or are you transferring the file to the laptop first? Reading high volumes of data via USB is slow and the PC may not be able to read the data fast enough from the camcorder. Try copying the video to the laptop first, then play it back.

Unfortunately, only video and/or pictures from your (SD Memory) Card can be transferred (via the USB cable) to your computer. Video/pictures from a disk is not accessible to your computer.
So, you may wish to try to playback the video (on the camcorder) with the output to a DVD recorder (using the AV cables from the camcorder to the DVD recorder or a VCR recorder). This assumes you have a DVD recorder (or VCR recorder) that will take the RGB input from the camcorder. Connect it up just like you're viewing the playback on a TV monitor.

How do i play whats on the memory card nothing plays video only audio. or what do i need to convert it


First, make sure you have it on CARD (and not DISK), and on the "playback" (and not record) mode. Next, does the camera play back other video clips normally, but just not a specific clip ?
Does the selected video clip frame (index) shown on the LCD screen have a picture ? If not, i.e. it is blank (dark), then it is likely that no video was recorded (i.e. just the audio) when you were shooting that video clip.
If there is a picture (of the video clip frame index on the LCD screen) and only audio is playing, try downloading the clip (from the SD card) to your computer, or simply try to play the video on the SD card (inserted directly into your SD card reader on your computer, or via a USB SD card reader) and see if the video clip will play normally on your computer.

This is the step-by-step for downloading from your camera as found on Sony's tutorial page:

  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. On the computer, install the USB driver for the digital camcorder. Note: Only the USB driver included on the supplied CDROM will properly enable the digital camcorder for USB streaming. Alternatively, you can download the USB driver here.
  3. Turn on the digital camcorder to the VTR, VCR or PLAYBACK mode.
  4. Turn on the USB streaming feature of the digital camcorder.
  5. Connect the USB cable to the digital camcorder.
  6. Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer.
  7. Cue the video to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
  8. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  9. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  10. Begin importing the recorded video with the capture software.

Trying to transfer camcorder video to computer.


To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:-
1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability)
2. Appropriate software/application.
If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed.
Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.

Can not import film to PC.


I have a partial solution for those whose files come up as audio. connect your camera via USB. Windows Movie Player should recognize the camera when you select capture device. When you have your camera selected hit next. Put the file in My Video and title it. When you are ready too capture video Hit play on you camera while in the review screen. The Movie Maker will then capture your video as it plays in the camera.

Exporting video


ok, this is only a PC experience(via USB) but it may be the issue you face:

importing video has one catch with this camera---always have to remind myself:

you have to set the camera to playback mode (pretty normal, only use PC mode to get still photos off the SD card)

but before you hook up here's the catch:

go into the menu, setup screen on the camera itself. there you will find you have to choose between something like "act as webcam" or "DV playback". The camera can be a webcam, but it cannot do that and send video to the computer.

this is the setting I always forget---and I don;t even use it as a webcam that often.

hope this helps you too
