I have recently bought a Sony DCR 72E 60gb HDD camcorder and am having problems.
I filmed a couple of clips and then transferred the video to my PC using the provided Sony software. The video plays perfectly in the supplied Sony Picture Motion Browser and I can view my video and audio perfectly.
I have saved all of my video into "My Videos" folder in my documents but if I try and play the video clip in any other program such as Windows Media Player, Real Player, Quick Time, Pinnacle Studio 10 I can view the video but there is no audio at all.
When I look at the folder where the clips are saved for every clip there are 2 files with the same file name (1 has a thumbnail of the clip - which plays the video) and the other is a MODD file, a format not recognised by Windows XP (I can only assume that this is the audio part to the clip).
So basically I can only watch my videos in the Sony software which is no good as I want to start editing my footage in Pinnacle Studio and Adobe Elements. Is there an error with my camcorder or am I doing somthing wrong?
I'm a complete novice to these forums so I would be extremely grateful for any advice to help me solve these problems.
Many many thanks in advance
