CD400 Disc Problem

I just got my new cd400 a few days ago and everything seems to be working fine except for one thing. I'm having some problem when I finalize the mini cd and play back the pictures on my computer. The pictures look great on the cameras LCD screen, But after the finalization process something goes wrong. Some of the shots being played from the disc in my cd-rom look so distorted I can't tell what they are. Could it be that during finalization the camera may have moved or been bumped, Or the surface was not level enough for this process ? Thanks for any input for this digicam rookie .

Re: CD400 Disc Problem

I doubt it altho I really don't know. I've put over 6000 shots through my 300 and finalized in all kinds of conditions - including bumpy roads, trams, and airplanes. I've never experienced what you described, although twice in severely bumpy conditions I had one pic on each disk with half its pixels corrupted. Sounds like there is something severely wrong. To test it you can try not finalizing and look at the pics through your USB connection.

My sony mavica won't load on win 7 mvc-cd400


Hi,
MVC-CD400 is too old for Windows 7 operating system. This camera works only with Windows XP and Vista.
Check Sony Support after some time (months) for any driver update, if Sony release it.
Thanks.

Need drivers for Mavica MVC-CD400 digital camera. My idiot ex threw away the disc when our old XP recognized it way back when. I have a new Windows 7 PC and I can't connect my camera. Can you help?


As your camera records direct to CD you clearly don't have the option to use an external card reader, and as the recording is in a proprietary format few CD drives will read the information.

You can download the software for your model for free from here. Don't expect Win7 drivers though as the model has long been discontinued and is unsupported by Sony, but you can try running Win7 in compatibility mode.

I hope that you have found my reply to be relevant and useful; if so, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Mavica CD400 Not enough disc space error


A few times over the last several years, having shot thousands of images with my CD-400, I discovered that VERY rarely a bump/jar, etc. can cause a bad write, or the same thing when finalizing. In the car with a friend one day, I was needing to finalize for him and got the message of death. That's the only thing I can offer; mine has worked like Sony intended.

Help "for infolithium battery only" mvc-cd400


I've come across a few infolithium batteries which show empty but they have been fully charged. It turned out to be the circuitry in the battery which is supposed to tell you how much power is left being faulty. Both were replaced under warranty. When the fault occured in a Sony 505V the battery was still fully useable apart from the icon flashing flat battery.

Why can't MVC-CD400 zoom in and out when video


On p. 100 in the manual it states that the zoom does not work when shooting a movie with the cd400 only. The cd400 has quite a few more features,for example the higher resolution and the Carl Zeiss lens, compared to the cd250, thereby justifying the higher price. It has more functions as a still digital camera, more manual settings, etc., so I guess you have to sacrifice that one function. No digital still camera will replace a camcorder - the fact that you can record a movie as long as the cd allows is a lot better than most other still cameras. So you and your friend have the best of all worlds together, you just have to share! I have taken thousands of pictures with my cd400, and the picture quality and the cheap storage are great. Happy shooting!

In need of SERIOUS help with CD400 Battery, etc.


I don't know how long the battery lasts if you use the flash with every picture, but I do know that the CD400's battery charger can take 110 or 220 volts so you will be able to charge it in France with only a plug adapter.
