I had the same problem with my SC-D363. My screen would flash "D" and tell me to eject the tape.Here is the SOLUTION:1) Very Gently unscrew (4 screws)and remove the front casing portion of the camcorder, be sure not to strip the screws.2) Directly underneath the lens there is crosslike metal support that extends from the tapecompartment chassis. The green circuit board should rest on top of it as shown below instead ofunderneath it, as it was when it was assembled.And Voila!

Try cleaning the video heads, this is a indication that the video heads may be clogged and needs cleaning, If you have not kept the heads clean during use, or for extended amount of time, you may need a professional cleaning, try a tape cleaning cartridge first if this does not unclog the heads then take it in for service.

You need video editing software in order to capture video. You can download free software or trial software on the internet. If your using windows you may check to see if your PC has moviemaker on it. Not my favorite, but if your new to this, then it will work.

I recommend SOny's Movie Studio for $129. It's worth the money and fairly easy to use.
