Hi,


I'm wondering if any one else has encountered the same problem i'm having. I've seen alot of usd connection probs on here but i'm running with XP and it recognizes the connection and streaming, however, pic package software does not recognize my dvd/cd burner with it comes does to wanting to burn a vcd/dvd. In the destination/source drive drop down list box, there is nothing registered. I've however had not had this prob when i used the movie maker prog that comes stardard with xp, where as i was able to stream, store and burn the video from my camcorder and to the hard disk and other recordable media. Does any one have any thoughts on this? i know pic package is basically crap and i'ld b better off using other video editing progs out there but for the time being any suggestions? Tha

Well, if you look through this fourm and the multi media fourm you will read that FIREWIRE is the way to import video and NOT USB. Here is a link with good info. John

Can not burn VCD from Sony Camcorder
by route3 / June 18, 2005 4:40 AM PDT

I bought a Sony HC 65 last November. At the same time I bought a Dell Laptop. I tried using picture package to make a VCD and it would not recognize the blank CDR in my drive. I tried several blank CDs, still nothing. Then I tried a different computer, same thing. I called sony support, and th burner on both Dell computers "was not supported". One was a Sony, the other a Samsung. Why would Sony sell a nice camcorder with lousy software.
If you want my advice, don't buy a Sony

Pic Package IS uselesss

I purchased a Handycam, but the software that comes along with it does not recognize all CD Burner brands, and if you happen to have one it does not recognize, you're out of luck. If you can use other means to burn VCD's use it, becuase you won't be able to otherwise.

The software is for pictures. It is not intended for videos. I have never even installed mine because there are a ton of picture programs out there that are better.
If you are going to capture video with your computer, you need to use firewire. You need to use a video editing program for video editing. You need to use a dvd authoring program to make a dvd of your video.
