Recording to Memory Stick: If you are trying to record to a memory stick and the display shows "Protection" or "Write Protection", you must slide the Safety Tab on the back of the memory stick to the unlock position.

Recording to a Tape: If you are trying to record to a tape and the display shows "Protection", you must slide the protection tab at the top of the tape to the "Rec" position. Here's a picture of protection tab in record position:

I have a Sony Memory Stick Duo Adapter with 1 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo insert. When I put in my DCR-TRV18 camera and switch it to Memory, I get Memory Stick Error on the screen


On many cameras , the picture format that you can save on memory stick is not the same that you can have by recording on tapes. It should be the same on your handycam.

You can increase memory stick to at least 2GB, that is what sony reccomends, you can test a 4 gb to 16 gb at the shop, if it works , then buy it.

However, the quality of movies grabbed on memory stick, should be far less than the one of movies recorded on tape.

"Protection!" on screen when trying to record on tape


samsung is awful. i only used my camera a handful of times and then same problem with the protection mode. since its out of warranty i have to pay for the repair. they told me that it has never ever been a reported issue, so being that said i have to pay for repair on a faulty part. (I literally used this camera 10 times most since i bought it 4 years ago) they are horrid! not to mention how long it took me to get anywhere. they hung up on me 3 times, and I also kept getting disconnected! I will never own another samsung again!

I loss my memory stick of Handycam DCR-TRV40E


Do not panic, yes the Sony mem stick can record, but why dont you use the proper tapes for these cameras to do your movies on? they are readily available in all good camera shops, even Argos do them.
The mem sticks are available from your local Maplin shop okay.

Video recording shuts down after 15 seconds


I just looked at my Sony DCR-TRV30. Not the same, but perhaps similar. My camera records lengthy videos on tape and only brief videos on memory stick. I suggest that you stick to tape for video.
Good Luck

HOW DO I DELETE RECORDS FROM JVC -D740EK VIDEO CAMERA?


Since the JVC GR-D740EK is a european miniDV camcorder with no embedded memory nor memory card slot, I would assume that your talking about erasing or recording over your miniDV tapes. You can simply do so by sliding the the erase protection tab on your miniDV tape towards "record" and you can begin to record you movies. Prerecorded tapes cannot be deleted and used as "new" or bare (having no recording on it).

DV Cassettes vs Memory Stick


Well, I went to The Sony site and what I found out was that currently this camera is only ceritfied for a 512mb stick. It does say what the qualiy is the memory stick is E-mail mode with a resultion of 160x112 pixels. The TAPE mode is DV quality or 740X480 pixels. Try recording both ways and see what looks better when you play it back on you TV or PC then decide.
