I don't know if you did this, but I gather from the manual that before replaying a movie in the camera, you have to run it through a converter program that comes with it. Of course, if you recorded the video using the camera, I can't think of any excuse for being unable to replay it. How about the PAL/NTSC setting?

What do you mean about hte Pal/NTSC setting?
I've never bothered to ever research what they do.
But so far
the camera has become a very big disappointment.
I'll post some videos up tommarow maybe to show you what i mean
but The mic inside, i believe something is loose
At first out of the box it was recording video just fine,
i run down the hall way with the camera and then i noticed when i played it back
the shaking of the camera while like a 4 big running steps to the living room loosened
something in the mic and now has a very loud whistiling noise.
If i give the camera a lil shake here and there it stops, then starts then stops.

The manual should explain what the PAL and NTSC settings are for.

As for the rattling noise, I once had a Digilife DDV-820, and it had a rattling noise. After enough shaking and messing around, a blob of solder fell out of it. If there is something like that loose in your 7300, it could cause all sorts of problems, including complete failure.

I think you have to either open it up and see what's going on, or return it. Lucky for you that you didn't buy one from the Orient.

Have you gotten your 730 yet??
Im thinking if c3digital or w.e his screen name is on ebay.
well if he lets me return the 7300 i might just ask him if he could send me the 730, id really like to have the webcam feature and mp3 player or to just plug headphones in to watch video.

I won't be seeing the 730 for at least a couple of weeks. Not because of slow shipping, but because of my own final delivery arrangements.

I gather 3cdigital is a 'she', if it makes any difference. I noticed the ad for the 730 stated it was a final sale, so you may have to take up the 7300 problem with Digilife. They have a US office that you could phone.

a couple weeks....
i really wanted to know how your camera was, if it had the same problem.
Because "she" said i could return the camera, but gotta pay for shipping....
Even though they said it was normal for the camera to do that saying it changes sensitivity while recording, bit it Definately isent the case here.
PLUS the light sensitivity in dark rooms really sucks, and i heard CCD chips are way better in light sensitivity

light adjustment can occure for a number of reasons

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"cmos or ccd, filming record the second the camera is on and to the light in front . causes a bad video. in the shade and the sensor does not adjust\, those are just a few.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"
