Hey everyone,

I just filmed some videos over the weekend and am now in the process of importing them. The camera is a HDR-FX1 I filmed in 1080i and every time I try to play the tapes a message popes on screen that says Change to Correct Tape Format. It is quite frustrating if anyone can shed some light on the issue I would be very happy thanks.

Just had the same problem with the same camera. Did you find out how to fix it?

If you're playing in a deck then the deck is in DV mode, or the camera playback might also be in DV mode. I'm not sure how to switch the camera playback modes, but should be in the menu.
