Question about Sony DVP-S7000 DVD Player

1 Answer

Won't playback copied dvd's, only commercially made ones.

I've had this Sony player for 8 years and just recently started copying dvd movies from my collection via computer from my personal collection only to discover that it will not playback any of the copied ones and plays only commercially made discs. A call to Sony service verified that it will not play burned dvd movies but did not offer a solution to this problem with the player. The Sony service tech said the unit was made at the time to play back only commercially recorded discs. I now have 50 burned dvd movies and am now looking to buy a player that will play them. If anyone has a solution for this annoying problem I would love to apply it, otherwise its off to the Goodwill store with it.

Read here and we can see that other people have both trouble and success running back ups on this device: http://www.videohelp.com/forum/archive/anyone-experienced-with-b-u-s-playing-on-a-sony-dvp-s7000-t283487.html So... That tells us this device is finicky IE it requires a high quality burn. DVD burners have varying levels of accuracy. To improve your burn: -SLOW the burn speed for increased accuracy -USE DVD-R only as it is the most compatible -Use those Sony's DVD-r's at wal-mart or KMART because Sony makes DVR's and everyone else buys them from generic Taiwan manufacturer and relabel I bet this will solve your problem. After you get a successful burn at 2x try 4x then 6 etc.

8 Tips to Choose DVD Copy Software for Mac


There are a lot of great movies being produced in Movie Festival every year. Want to backup these movies for collection? Mac optical driver cannot meet our demands anymore. That is why numbers of DVD Copy Software come out. Then how to choose the best and most suitable software for you? Here are 8 tips I summarize for selecting Mac DVD Copy Software:
1. User-friendly and Simple Operation.
This is basic requirement. If you do not like the software, you can not operate easily and no need to choose it.
2. Fast Burn Speed.
The time for burning a movie would be the faster the better in case for not influencing copy quality according to the fast paced modern life.
3. Support Copying Various DVD.
DVD+R, DVD-R, D5, D9…Just buy the DVD disc your want to use for copy.
4. With Compression Function or Not.
D9 disc is much more expensive than D5, you can save a lot of money if copy software with compression function.
5. Burned DVD Can be Played on DVD Player, not only on Mac.
6. Support External Driver or Not.
If you do not want to change the region code on your computer according to different region DVD, the best choice would be having an external driver. So your copy software must support external driver.
7. With Trial Version.
The software would be better with trial version so that you can try before purchasing.
8. Great Support Service.
It is the adding service for product. If you have the better support service, you can use the program more comfortable without worrying to pay extra money for continuous upgrade version.
After fiddling with many mac dvd copy software and wasting several DVDs, I finally selected Wondershare DVD Copy for Mac. This software has everything you would like to see in a Mac DVD copy software, also very easy to use, just follow 5 steps:
1. Insert DVD Disc.
2. Select DVD Copy Method.
3. Program Settings .
4. Choose Place to Save Your DVD File.
5. Start Copying DVD.

I am having a sony hi 8 ccd trv 58 model handycam. i want a driver to transfer my videos to my personal computer. any free drivers available?


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.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD TRV211.


Hi,
If you are asking about CCD-TRV211 camcorder?
CCD-TRV211 is analog Video-8 camcorder so its movie data is not digital and can not be connected directly with computer via USB port.
Best and easiest was is to connect camera with DVD Recorder and burn DVD, this will convert analog movie file into digital data and you can copy it to hard disk of computer.
