Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hi, Thanks in advance for your help. I just bought a HDR-Cx160 Sony Camcorder from Costco, in preparation for a road trip. Earlier I had looked at a sony hdr- 150 at BEST BUY and noticed it was mac compatible (listed on the box), (I just figured it's a step up from the Sony 150; of course this Sony 160 will work). However, I don't see it listed on the box, like I did on the 150. Am I going to have problems downloading video and pictures with this CX 160 onto my newer model A



Answers :

I'm glad to inform you that you can use HDR-CX160 with the Macintosh Computer without any additional drivers or software. Once you connect the Camcorder, it will recognize as a new icon in the Desktop of the Mac. You can copy the videos from the new drive icon placed on the desktop. \015\012
\015\012
\015\012You will be able to use the latest version of iMovie Software to playback the HD videos from the Camcorder. \015\012

Hi, well as long as you have BOTH manufacturers, Apple & Sony's, software and drivers and they are actually for your system, and it is actually annotated on and IN the box, and literature, then you should have NO trouble at all using this camera, with the PC. Always install ALL the software First before hooking anything up.\015\012
\015\012All cameras are pretty much of a muchness, as they say, ie: one is as good as another, as long as it takes hi-res pictures, it is only the "Extras" and "Add-ons" that set them apart. but the basic camera workings and internals are all pretty much the same. All will connect to a PC, and all will transfer data easily, or the storage media, can be removed and used in the PC.\015\012
\015\012Sony produces good quality equipment so you should be all OK. BUT getting a full warranty, is another Must Have, if possible. As these cameras, well any camera is an expensive repair if ever it is needed. \015\012
\015\012Now using a Mac PC with apple OS software, can be a challenge at times, perhaps no more so than a Windows based machine, but there you have it, many things for odd reasons simply will NOT work with Apples, that work flawlessly in a Windows machine. BUT when it works, the Apple is a brilliant machine and a joy to use.\015\012
\015\012You should have no trouble downloading the movies to the PC, this can be via, the interconnection cable, usually USB, but may be Firewire, or one can simply remove the Flash Drive, and using a reader transfer the movies to the PC.\015\012
\015\012Always get the Fastest memory your pocket will allow, with SD memory speed is what you want. Generally "Brand names" are worth the bit extra with cost. But they are all fairly good, so you look for the cheapest most expensive one....:)

Hello. I have recently gotten a Sony DSC-s950 SteadyShot. Yesterday, I plugged in the camera and later took it out. But when attempting to view the photos inside of it, all I get is a very small box in the center that looks like a bunch of meshed up colors. When I connect to the computer though, I am still capable of seeing the images. Any help on this would be gladly appreciated.

Hi, We bought a Sony DCR HC62 Handycam last month. Twice now while recording a video, horizontal gray bars appear on the display screen breaking the image up.
