To more effectively remove the "Dew" or moisture bury it in a bag of rice to attract all the moisture out. It may be too late, depending on length of time it has been affected like this But worth the try. In future store it with a few of those crystal bags that come in packing. They absorb excess moisture Or make up some rice bags

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

Go to the sony web site and download the driver for your camcorder. Search: DCR-TRV330 softwear (or USB drive(r)) When it asks for the CD_ROM part number grab the CD that came with it and type in the number that's under the words USB DRIVE. If you no longer have the CD try this number: 2-515-350-01. It's for the DCR-TRV280. IDK if it'll work for yours. For best results fined some one who has the disk for camcorder. It's not a key/buy code or anything like that. You can use it as meany times as you like. It's just a number that is used to identify the softwear with that type of camcorder.

The issue is clear one of power storage ...The thing to find out is the cause...First to check is to see if teh camera has power and powers up when it is plugged into the wall plug .If it does it means the cable is good and the charger also ..Check to be sure it is charging ..and leave it a while ..and if it powers on batteries it means it was just a matter of being plugged in a wrong way ..If it has no power on batteries it means they lost the ability to store the power..Also if you have the possibility check the batteries on another charger..and see if it is a strange case when the charger does powers the cam on direct plug ..but do not charge the batteries..In this case it is something wrong with the wiring inside the camera ..and you will have to either see a external charger ..or have the camera checked and repaired..

If your PC has DV link port, connect camera via DV link and transfer movie files in computer.
Other way is to hook camera with DVD recorder and burn DVD.
Thanks.

Sounds like you are trying to download stills. Are you using a USB cable? You should be.
If you wish to capture from tape then use a firewire cable and open Windows Movie Maker.

When my sony did that, I checked the power to be sure it had enough power to function (unfortunately it did)---then I had to get a service manual and remove the screws in the body to get to the tape. On mine, there was a little plastic arm on the inside next to where the tape was, I had to move that plastic piece over and it released my tape. I got the service manual to make sure I could put it back together right...
