Try installing the drivers for your camera.

you cannot move the spindles/cogs in a mini dv tape without pressing down a small lever on the rear of the cassette.
the lever is in the lower right, move the lever, then move the ribbon protector to the open position, then spin the cogs, the tape should be free.
if not, then you have a jamm inside the cassette, you can open these casettes by removing 4 small screws. ( this is a very fiddly job & you may ruin the casette, if you dont know how )

The answer to this is probably in the manual - have you looked there ? If not, careful perusal of all the options in the menu system should point you in the right direction.

first of all you should have your cd driver came with camcorder and as far as i know your driver isnt compatible with vista so better try to use windows xp. install the driver, plug your camcorder using your usb. upload your videos from your camcorder to your pc using ULEAD MOVIE MAKER. edit it and save it with any various types of videos. finish!

This can be caused by several problems including a defective eject switch in the cameras internal circuitry or a bad motor and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Hi

If you're using windows XP, the camera will be automatically identified.
Anyhow, try the following:
1. Check the cable for any possible defects.
2. Switch off the computer.
3. Connect the cable to both the camcorder and the firewire card.
4. Switch on the computer.
5. Switch on the camcorder.

If the cable and the firewire card are both okay then it is possible
that the camcorder firewire interface is damaged.

good luck

You may need a MiniDV head cleaner tape. Read the instructions on the tape carefully and good luck.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This issue arises when the Camcorder is not operated for a long time.

Gently knock on the push button simultaneously opening the cassette holder and insert the cassette. Now push on the right side and gently push the holder back in position and press play, fast forward and backward one by one. The Camcorder will now accept the cassette. If still the issue persists, then repeat the above steps until the issue is resolved. It is recommended that always store the camcorder in a dust and humidity free area and always remove the battery and cassette when not in use.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I had the same problem. In desperation, I picked up my trusty can of compressed air and aimed a few shots into the recorder/playback mechanism. Worked like charm.
