No date showing up on my DVDs that were copied from Handycam

by kenchancellor / March 4, 2010 3:44 AM PST

I used a Sony DCR-HC62 Handycam to tape 60 tapes. I then copied them to DVD+RW using a JCV DR-MV80B DVD video recorder. We did not have the time/date option selected on the comcorder during the copying of the tapes to the DVDs. Sony says the date/time information was embedded (even if I did not option/select it to show on the tapes)and that the date/time data would have been copied over with the movie. When I play back the DVDs, they do not have the date on them. If the date/time data is there (just embedded) can anyone tell me how to get the date to pop up on the TV screen during the viewing of my DVDs. Thank You Very Much.

This topic is well worn. If I am to discuss it, I want to keep it short. If you find that offensive, just say so and I can remove my replies.

Ok, the best trick I use for this is to add CC or Closed Captioning to the DVD with DVD creation software. Read for example.

This area is far from automatic and no tools that you have are likely to do this.
