Plug-in FP & FV batteries show "Not Compatible
I have both a SONY digital tape video camera (DCR HC32) and an all digital SD card Sony video camera (HDR PJ260). Each take the plug-in style battery packs which are almost identical in the way they plug into the camera body.
Recently two of my fully recharged batteries when installed on the camera showed an error message of 04.00 with the message this battery is incompatible with this camera.
These are tried and true batteries used for a couple of years so the message had to be incorrect.
I have found the solution.
Take the battery back off your camera. Look carefully at where the battery plugs into. You will find three copper fins that accept the slots of the battery pack.
These fins get dirty. They may not look like they are but after carefully scratching all the metal surfaces with a teeny tiny jewelers screwdriver, the battery was reinserted and the problem disappeared.

How can set spy Sunglasses Camcorder time and date
Given methods vary between devices..
The model I have, worked by creating a file called time.txt using say MS Notepad and copying to the "root" of the micro SD disk.
The file contained the current time is this format:-.
2011.03.31 14:42:30 Y
(Meaning date of 31st May 2011 Time 14.42 30 Secs)
This worked perfectly for me....
To REMOVE time stamping you apparently change the "Y" to "N" as follows:-
2011.03.31 14:42:30 N
Other versions of AV Recording Glasses require a similar text file called "timeset.txt" and I think the format required is just the numbers without colons or period punctuation......

How do i get sound on my vivitar DVR782 HD?
I don't believe this camera has it's own built in speaker so you won't be able to hear anything. In that case you need to remove the camera s/d card and place in your computer s/d slot. If none is available, there are s/d to usb cables available that are not expensive. Put in the s/d card and plug in the usb from the cable into any usb computer slot. Once you click on your video via the s/d card, you should hear your audio from the video.
