Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

3inch disks I no longer have my camera. However, I still have all my 3 inch disks that I shot with that camera. I can not get them to play on my computer. Does anyone know if there is a driver, or program that will let me view my disks on my XP computer? When I put them in my drive now, it either tells me that there is no disk in the drive, or it shows a blank disk. Please help! Thanks.

These disks should have been finalized whilst in the camera to be seen on other devices. All I suggest you can do is to find another owner and get them to finalise the disks in their camera

No sound on video when i play it back on my PC

1. Install a multimedia player which can play the camera videos (.mp4, .mpeg, .dat files) like VLC Player, Real Player, KMP Player, etc.

3. You can also play these videos on the media player which came with the software bundle (CD) of your Sony Cyber Shot camera.

tell me if it! :)

I just bought a Vivicam 8025. It comes with a 3 inch disc with user's manual. I cannot use a three inch disc in my computer. I can take pictures, but the camera won't save them. It says my disk is full....


the 3inch disk fits into the same drive as your cd just place it in the center depression of the CD/DVD drive

as for the disk full error check to see from the camera settings if you have set to save the photos on the camera or on the memory card

pls rate if it was any help

DSC-W55 movie camera video display problem

Your quality setting is probably set to the E-Mail quality. This makes the video low quality and tiny.

Just press the button that you use to delete pictures with the regular screen on and change the image quality.

If the PC is a ME/2000/XP computer you do not need a disk Windows can get along fine without - try it.

No Picture

1. If you are using TIFF mode for uncompressed images, the camera takes much longer to process the image because of the very large file size. It takes longer between shots and longer to play back a TIFF image. The TIFF setting on the camera Top LCD Display is 'No Stars' (One Star = Basic, Two Stars = Normal, Three Stars = High Resolution, No Stars = be patient for TIFF). Unless you are doing professional images, we suggest that you use the normal or high resolution JPG settings (Two or Three Stars / FULL) for good results. 2. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 3. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images. Although the camera is ready to continue capturing images almost immediately in bright (daylight) settings, if you are using Flash photography the Flash element will need to charge between shots. 4. The batteries may be running low. LCD Display, Flash, and Playback use much more power than taking pictures. It is possible to quickly consume battery power, even if you are not taking many pictures. Try turning the Mode Dial to the OFF position to recycle power. If the camera beeps and will not take a picture under normal conditions, you may need to change batteries.

Lost files on my mvc-cd400?

I purchased my CD-400 when it hit the market and have shot thousands of great images with it... all things considered. Maybe 3 or 4 times over the years have I had that problem and have failed at every attempt to resolve the issue. Someone suggested it was the brand of CD I was using. I rejected that, because I by disks they way they come: in packs. One other thought: ALL these digital cameras are nothing but scaled down computers, and you know computers. Every once in a while they get a wedgie you can't, well, you know. I know it's a hassle, but if you've shot some very important images: wedding, super-shots on vacation, etc., USB those puppies as soon as you get back to a pc. Maybe you won't lose all.
