I have a Sony HDR-CX405 HandyCamcorder. Can you help in

Customer Question
I have a Sony...

I have a Sony HDR-CX405 HandyCamcorder. Can you help in copying to DVD.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

HDR-CX405 brought this year

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Well I was able to view the footage on my TY, but when I posed in a dvd in my dvd recorder the recorder seem to record as the digital numbers were moving forward, but when I tried to play it back I got only what was on the tv station at the time of the viewing from the material on the camcorder.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?

Do I need a mini USB To 3 RCA Audio Video Cable

You will need to transfer the videos from your Sony HandyCam camcorder to your computer using Firewire cable ports - USB will not allow for video transfer.

If you don't have a Firewire port you can easily upgrade it using a PCI to IEEE 1394 card:
