How to import edited hd video back on the sony t900 camera

by rattov / October 14, 2009 9:52 PM PDT


i need some help to find a way to import back edited hd video file to sony t900 camera. When i import the file from the camera i get a mp4 file, once i edited and saved with an external software the new mp4 video, the sony software does not allow me to import back to the camera, since it says that it can only do it with files directly shot with the camera. Is there any way to go around this problem?
thanks for the help

Can you put it in storage mode?

Some cameras, such as the various Canon powershot models, will allow you to drag and drop various files from a simple windows explorer interface. See if the Cybershot allows you to similary do that with the memory card.

The problem is that the operation you suggested is possible only with files supported by the camera, and at the moment i cannot find a software to save the edited movie in the supported format.

And many have tried for years.

Let's say that you have looked at SUPER VIDEO CONVERTER (google), GSPOT CODEC APPLIANCE and learned, did all you could.

You're done and learned the lesson first hand.

I wish there was a faq about this area that would save people from themselves. After seeing a few friends and customers work on this over the years I wonder if you could "just answer the question?"

It's not a riddle, it's a rabbit hole. How deep is it?

Here's what you need

In reply to: re

If I'm not mistaken, you need a program to work with saving files in the AVCHD format (MPEG4 AVC/H.264; 1280x720 @ 30 fps). At least that's what some of the other 'T' series cameras work with. But even after changing the edited footage back to this precise format I'm not entirely certain the camera will function in USB storage mode like some other brands/models. Sony documention leaves a lot to be disired IME.

The Wikipedia entry lists a few converters you could try-

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
