Hi,

Please double check that your camera has well-charged power source and has enough memory or capacity to record new data. Since the camera was sold starting around 1995, this would be a tape. If there is no more tape to record, then you would run into the issue that you've mentioned above. But there are other possibilities as well.

Thank you.

Where can i get a sony vx1000 for around 5000 bucks in good condidtion

Is there a reason you want the vx1000? They have updated this model several times as this unit came out in 1995. I am sure you could find one for that price being as they aren't even worth that much anymore. You can purchase a much better more modern camera from sony for your 5000$. If you check out ebay there are a bunch of them you can get one for about 700$ give or take.

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data

I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?

In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
