Losing your Handycam software is the best thing that could have happened to you all. It stinks. Firewire eliminates the need for the crummy camcorder software. Basically, you need to install, or have installed, a Firewire card in your PC, then buy a Firewire cable. Then WinDV software will work perfectly to import video. USB connections, and the USB cable, are ideal for downloading digital still images from cameras. Running footage requires a very large bandwidth, which basically is the throughput from camera to computer. Think of a funnel with a small opening. The small opening is USB. Make the opening 4 times as large and nothing backs up in the funnel. The large opening is Firewire. Anyways, by using a Firewire connection, you can bypass the camcorder software and use "real" video editing software.
As for the video editing software
You can use Sonys movie studio
Windows Movie Maker - The best video editing tool for Windows that's free and chances are you already have it installed on your computer as part of XP SP2. Microsoft Movie Maker has all the basic video editing tools plus a good collection of transitions and video effects.

There's an in-built movie titler that lets add you styles to text titles including ticker taps, zoom and even the scroll effect. And if you are feeling lazy, just hit the AutoMovie command to have the entire video produced for you with intervention.

What DVD's are you using +R/RW -R/RW some formats may not work especially on non-branded media some DVD players wont even play CD-R but will play some CD-RW of the correct brand.

I suggest that you try your finalized DVD in your PC then create an image using ImageBurn then burn the image onto a branded media and try again. Most firmware on DVD burners are very forgiving and will support a wider range of manufacturers and formats.

Hope this helps, you might want to look on your DVD players website for updated firmware you will need a blank CD and create a update disc using your computer.

open it, clean the dust with air blower, check whether either the capstan motor or drum drive motor is struck, try to loosen it with a plastic lever.

this camcorder is an earlier model thus the zoom control motor could be weak, if so open it and take out the camera section and unscrew the zoom control motor, loosen it, some sort of sticky grease on the worm gear also obstructs, clean it with small brush or cotton bud. then apply a little silicon grease. don't let dust go in.

Trust me on this one....with tape still in unit and battery removed, smack both sides of unit firmly 3-4 times with the heel of your hand. It works 9 out of 10 times on all Sony cameras. I was quoted $170 to just look at the camera and then a probable $290 to replace the cassette loader mechanism. I told them it wasn't worth it. I checked other Sony blogs addressing the same issue and with out fail smacking the ...cking thing is the only way around it. Apparently it frees up a stuck part. Give it hell.

Oddly I have the oposite of this problem. I actually did find the drivers but now I need to find a software that will record the video off of it. I normally use MotionDV STUDIO but for some reason it won't detect this camera.

Here is the link to the drivers you all are looking for.
