Hi guys, I bought this camcorder from the States 3 years ago (live in Italy), never edited with it, now I finally wanted to learn how and I can't find the manual. I try to upload the video thru the Sony software on disc, but I get nothing on the CD-R it tells me to use. Then whatever goes on the CD (looks like a bad pic only of what the footage should be) prevents me from adding anything else, it tells me to use a new blank one (but there's no video on it?).
I don't know what the hell is going on frankly, can't view on the PC, is that because it's NTSC? Anyway, was thinking of getting an HDD or miniDVD but I'm reading that MiniDV is better for editing and picture about as good? I have some family stuff recorded on tapes and I'd like to watch them on some kind of screen, but I'm also toying with the idea of amateur filming as a hobby...
Can anyone explain what I'm missing, or point me in the right direction?
