The Picture Package® version 1.0.x – 1.7.x software supplied with the camcorder is not compatible with Microsoft® Windows Vista® operating system. Sony is offering Picture Motion Browser version 2.0.13 software as an alternative to use with the camcorder and Windows Vista operating system.

TRV285 E, Insert cassette msg is appearing


I also had a similar problem. There was a message appearing "re-insert the cassette". I contacted Sony India. They advised to reset the Handycam (there is a button 'Reset' under the LCD when it is closed). After doing the Reset the message disappeared and it is working fine at the moment. I also checked up a forum for the message. A lot of people having the same problem were suggesting to whack the camcorder on the cassette side. Although i did not have to resort to it.

Reinsert cassette


Turn the unit off and hit the back of the camera twice near the battery compartment with the palm of your hand. Sounds crazy but it worked with my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV480. Problem started when I used 8MM Head Cleaner. I think the roller got stuck inside camcorder. The trouble code came up C:31:22. Hope this helps.
