Major Help with my V1U

Hey guys I have another problem with my camera

The wedding I shot last week, I used two cameras the HVR-V1U and the HVR-Z1U (had to use this last second)

Now, I had to return the Z1U to the rental store, but my 2nd shooter gave me all his DV tapes that he shot with that camera... I was under the assumption that all the tapes from the Z1U would play in my V1U...but when I put the tapes in, it just says "change tape format'...and any setting I try to change, it always says the same thing.

So Im in a very tough spot right now, because I really need to work on the video quick, but this is holding me back. Do you know what I can do?

Thanks a million guys...

The error message sounds as though you are trying to play tapes recorded as SD (720x486) with the camera set for HDV (1440x1080), or vice-versa.

Interesting. Playback mode should be auto by default as far as SD or HD goes.

I was thinking that for some reason it might be a PAL vs NTSC kind of thing. At least if you have a proper HDV deck you can always reboot in a 50i or 60i mode, etc.

Playback error

Rishi, did you ever figure out any solution to the playback problem ? It would have to be a playback selection on the menu. Try resetting to default settings if everthing else fails. Good Luck GM
