Hi all, just got back from a week in Malta and have been useing my camcorder a fair bit. I have waited till this point to also transfer all the other bits I have recorded when I first got the cam as I wanted to finish the whole first tape before transfering. I have now captured the 2 tapes I have used. When I play the AVI's on the PC they do not want to run at the correct speed. They either run too fast or crawl along, the audio plays at the correct speed though. The cam I use id the DCR-HC47E, although cant see it being the cam, could it be my laptop having issues? Or possibly media player (maybe a codec issue)? My laptop specs are as follows. Pentium 4 HT 2.8 Ghz 512mb RAM NVidia GeForce FX Go5200 64MB I was told by a friend that this should be fine to edit the footage etc, not that I have got that far as yet! Just wanted to sort out the playback of the raw files before I spend hours editing to find that the issue then arrises on the finished article. Any help would be great. Thanks.
