I purchased a Panasonic D-snap sv-av100 camcorder in the United States. It records fine, but when I try to copy film on to my Panasonic DVD recorder (I live in Austria, so it is PAL format) I just get a rolling black and white picture. Is this to do with NTSC and PAL compatability and if so, what can I do to get the colour picture I desire. Many thanks in advance. Jerry Haylins.

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

Bought a direct dvd recorder Sony DRV-MC10 on Amazon.USA,namely imported from USA to Greece. I can only record fotos on the DVD.

I have a Canon XH-A1s camcorder that I want to synch with my Sikonic Light Meter (cine mode). I know how to do that in theory, but need to connect the camcorder to Final Cut Pro's color tables to get a decent grey card reading from the camdcorder. So, in effect, I need to stream a signal (via Firewire) from the camcorder into FCP, bypassing the log and capture window. I've tried all sorts of ways, but have given up. Please, someone, tell me what I'm missing. Thanks.
