5.0 out of 5 stars Reappraisal after making a stupid mistake., 26 Sept. 2012
By 
This review is from: Sony TD20 - Full HD 3D Recording Camcorder - Black (64 GB, 20.4MP, 10x Optical Zoom) 3.5 inch LCD (Camera)
This is a follow up to a previous submission by me.

I will admit my mistakes!

The camera comes with a built in USB connection as stated in the instruction book.
It also comes with a data cable to USB connection, with an extension cable, USB female to male.

This is where my confusion arose. (Read stupidity if you want.)
The "built in USB cable" is stowed away in the hand strap on the side of the camera.
(Where it is stowed is not mentioned in the book.)

Even though I had adjusted the strap I had not noticed the connector.
This might have been caused by me only getting the camera the day before needing to use it. Not reommended.

Because of the terms that are usually quoted in literature about further improvements may have changed things, (We reserve the right etc.) I assumed the data cable supplied, with the USB to USB cable, was the one to use.
And this is what caused the problem as to get the camera talking to the computer it needs the stowed away USB connector to be used.

I have now given the camera 5 stars as the end result produced by the camera is, I think, brilliant.

How easy it will be to edit the results on a computer is a future head scratching process.

Thanks for the tip about the hidden USB cable. I was thinking to myself, 'Why would they supply a USB cable that is female at the PC end?' But, after seeing your review I found the built-in male-ending USB connection. Cheers.
