I finally got my Sony DCR-SR47Handycam working. well, partially anyway. I've figured out how to film with it, how to transfer content from it, and so on. However, there is a major, major problem with the audio. Whenever I play one of the videos from it using any media player on my computer, I just get the visuals plus this awful, horrible, broken tape recorder-like sound that is supposed to be my airconditioner in the background, though it happens even when there is less noise in the background; camcorders are supposed to render the background noise as what it is, not as whatever this is. I just did a test with it, and you can't even hear me talking; all you get is this awful noise. Is there a way I can fix the auto gain on the camcorder? I'll attach one of the MPGs (I just listened to one of the files from about four years ago when we filmed some takes from my high school graduation, and even they have this awful sound on here as well; though from the camera itself, I do not think this issue occurs.) if requested, though I warn you not to play it with headphones in your ears; that's how ear-splitting the sound is. Any help on this would be very much appreciated as I want to begin to use this camcorder as my primary filming device for my YouTube videos and such.
