The company upgrades original software for new computer operating systems, but does not provide downloads of their software. My solution was to purchase a second camcorder for parts that included the original software. I may have to purchase a third camera because of a malfunctioning disc assembly on both my camcorders.
The DVD-RAM media for this camcorder is encased in a plastic cartridge. Several companies make the media for this corder, Maxell calls it DVD-RAM Camcorder (DVD RAM 4.7) 2.8GB. You must verify it shows compatibility with Hitachi Camcorders, as the Sony media does not use the cartridge but is the same ram disc, so you could easily buy the wrong type.
TVs, VCRs, DVD players, camcorders and video games will continue to work, even if they are only analog-capable. Such equipment, however, may not provide digital-quality picture and sound.
Hope this helps.
