Re: "reinsert the cassettee" error in Sony HandyCam...
The camcorder most likely is not detecting the tape, you have a bad sensor and these sensors all come on a flex type board and the flex board is mounted on the chassis surface. This will mean that the entire mechanism will meed to be diassembled, and is a very big and costly job. My opinion is that this repair will run you abut 250 to 300 bucks and this camcorder is not worth this as new camcorders are under 200 bucks. Good Luck

CCD-TRV58 is analog camcorder and can not be connected with computer directly as camcorder does not have USB or iLink/ DV ports. Computer needs digital format movie data to store / edit files. You need to hook camcorder audio-video out to DVD recorder and burn DVD of camcorder movie so you will get digital format of movie. Put that DVD in computer and copy files for further process.
The error code is part of a self diagnosis feature of your cam. This particular code refers to something being wrong which you can fix yourself. The steps you should take, involve removing tape, and reinserting. removing power adapter plug and reinserting, remove battery pack and reinsert...
power down before each step, and power up again to check working status. The result of these checks should allow you to narrow down the problem.
You may have to look at trying a new battery, or replacing the cassette, or replacing power cord, or you just had not properly hooked something up, or the cassette wasn't properly seated.
These codes and their meaning can be found in your user guide, or manual. Good Luck!

I have a sony handycam ccd-trv 308 hi8 analog camcorder and I was trying to transfer videos from it to my computer. However, when I plug the S-video cable to the handycam and my computer, nothing happens. Does my computer require a driver to recognize the handycam because I cannot find any in the sites of sony for my handycam's model. Or am I using the wrong wire?
Sony camcorders C:31:23 error Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.

Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times. good luck
