First off I would buy a converter that allows you to plug your usb cord into it and then it plugs into an AC outlet. It will charge faster. Second, it sounds like when you PC is trying to recognize the hardware you have plugged into the usb port it isn't finding any software associated with the device and is for some reason restarting. If you received a software disc with your camcorder, try loading it on this PC and see if that fixes the problem.

Then the video data files are larger than 100 GB, simple as that. Video uses a lot of GB's, so that doesn't surprise me one bit. 100GB is a tiny amount of storage compared to modern machines, mine has 500 GB's, my Desktop has 1 TB.

Hi There, Can someone please help me! As I mentioned earlier that I am given a SONY DCR PC 101E camcorder. It came with a fire wire cable. May I know how do I download my video to my Windows 7 OS laptop...


You would needs to install the Sony software that came with the camera for transferring the video from your cam to computer.
First you will need to install the software, during installation it will prompt you to connect the camera. Once you connect the camera thru the Firewire port the installation will proceed and you will be able to download the Video from Camera to the computer.


For any additional assistance feel free to write back.

I just got a SONY DCR-PC 101E MINI DV camcorder from my sister in law but the batteries don't work, wondering what can I do with the batteries?


The Batteries do fail if a camera has been un-used for a year or so, you can however buy these at Maplin Electronic shops, look on the net for your nearest dept store.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
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
