|Go to this link for a look at the video quality you can expect from this camera. As I have got non-Sony TV and Home Theater System, I am having lots of problem with playing back those video recording on TV and Home Theater. If most of your pictures/videos are up close and personal, it works very well. Unless my problem is unique.|

The Sony SDX-550V drive is a high capacity data storage device using Advanced Intelligent tape (AIT) technology. The SDX-550V drive achieves high data reliability through Read-After-Write, an additional level of Error Correction Code, and other features. The Sony SDX-550V drive stores data on tape using standard formats called AIT (Advanced Intelligent Tape) and ALDC formats.
About AIT Drives
The SDX-550V is an internal AIT drive unit that uses data cartridges conforming to the AIT-2 Turbo format. The SDX-550V supports AIT-E Turbo, AIT-1, AIT-1 Turbo, AIT-2 and AIT-2 Turbo formats.
The AIT Drive Unit SDX-550V has the following features: Supports reading and writing to data cartridges conforming to the AIT-E Turbo, AIT-1, AIT-1 Turbo, AIT-2 and AIT-2 Turbo formats. The third-level error correction code guarantee high data reliability. Data compression provides 208 gigabytes of storage on 186 m tapelength AIT-2 Turbo data cartridge.*1 The native capacity is 80 gigabytes of storage on 186 m tape-length AIT-2 Turbo data cartridge. Stored data are automatically checked for compression. Ultra 160 Wide SCSI LVD/SE interface is fully supported for host computer access.
This is assuming 2.6 : 1 compression ratio. The degree of data compression attained while recording data varies according to system environment and data type.
Avoid placing the drive in a location subject to: high humidity high temperature mechanical shock and vibration direct sunlight
For details, see Specifications on page 29.
Do not move the drive while it is operating. It may cause malfunction. Avoid exposing the drive to sudden changes from low to high temperatures. This may cause water condensation to collect inside the drive. If the ambient temperature should suddenly rise while the drive is turned on, wait at least one hour before turning on the drive. If you attempt to operate the drive immediately after a sudden increase in temperature, a malfunction may occur. Turning off the power to the drive while they are writing to tape may cause the tape to become unreadable. All previously negotiated parameters will be lost, whenever power to the drive is cycled.
Keep the original packing materials to facilitate safe transportation of the drive. Always remove the data cartridge before moving the drive. After removing the drive from the computer, repack the drive into its original packing.
The SDX-550V can be used with data cartridges marked with the AIT-E Turbo, AIT-1 Turbo, AIT-2 Turbo, AIT-1 or AIT-2 logo.
Be sure to use only the cartridges designed specifically for AIT. Do not use anything but AIT cartridges with this system, as doing so can damage the AIT drive. Although commercially available 8 mm videotapes resemble AIT cartridges in appearance, they have entirely different specifications and cannot be used.
The SDX-550V conforms to the Microsoft PC97 standard, which requires the internal (naked) drive to be terminated with an external terminator. Microsoft PC97 SCSI requirements SCSI peripherals must not terminate the bus. Both internal and external cable ends are instead terminated by plug-in connectors.

Attaching and Removing the Dust Cover
Attaching the Dust Cover
Align the dust covers hinge clips (one on each side) with the pins of the drive bezel.
The dust cover should be positioned so that the magnets* on the covers back face the drive bezel.
This magnet does not affect the tape of the cartridge.
Holding the dust cover at an angle as shown in the figure below, set the hinge clips on top of the bezel pins, positioning them so that they bracket the pins.
Press down at an angle on each side in turn until you hear the hinge clips click into place.
Do not press the dust cover in horizontally from the front. Doing so could cause the dust cover to break.
Close the dust cover.
This completes attachment of the dust cover.
Removing the Dust Cover
Open the dust cover. Holding the dust cover at both corners, carefully raise the dust cover.
The dust cover hinge clips and drive bezel pins uncouple.
We recommend that you use the drive with the dust cover.

Loading a Cartridge
While setting the data cartridge, do not turn off the host computer. This may cause a malfunction or damage data.
Turn on the host computer. Check that the drives TAPE MOTION LED, CLEANING REQUEST LED and REPLACE TAPE LED go off. Open the dust cover.
Set the AIT data cartridge orientation as shown here and insert it into the data cartridge slot.
By inserting the data cartridge to the extent, it is automatically set in the drive and the TAPE MOTION LED lights.
Unloading a Cartridge
The cartridge can be removed from the SDX-550V either in response to a SCSI Unload Command, or by pressing the EJECT bottom. By pressing EJECT button, the tape is rewound and the cartridge ejected from the slot.
Write-protecting a Cartridge
Cartridges can be write-protected by sliding the tab on the back of the cartridge. In this state, data can be read from the tape but not written onto it.
AIT-E Turbo AIT-1 Turbo AIT-2 AIT-2 Turbo
Using your fingernail, push the switch in the direction of the arrow to protect the tape from writing or accidental erasure. Return the switch to its original position to re-enable writing.
Using a Cleaning Cartridge
To keep the AIT drive in top condition, clean the head as needed using a head cleaning cartridge with the AIT logo. When the head needs cleaning, the CLEANING REQUEST indicator lights.
How to Clean
Load the head cleaning cartridge (SDX1-CL) into the AIT drive. Cleaning starts automatically. After about 15 seconds, cleaning will stop and the cartridge will be ejected automatically.
Do not rewind the cleaning cartridge and reuse it. When you reach the end of the cartridge, dispose it and buy a new cleaning cartridge with the AIT logo.
Keep cartridges in their cases when not in the drives. Avoid storing cartridges in dusty locations, in direct sunlight, near heaters or air conditioners, or in humid locations. Do not place cartridges on dashboards or in car storage trays.
Emergency Tape Removal Procedure
Remove the drive from the chassis or enclosure to allow access to the bottom of the drive. Remove the drives top cover. Locate the small opening in the bottom of the drive and insert the tip of a precision screwdriver so that the Loading motor shaft can be rotated. Rotate the motor shaft clockwise to bring the threading mechanism back to the initial position.
Stop rotating the motor shaft immediately, when the guide B gets to the area below the line C-C (This line is defined by 2 circular tape guide surfaces of the cartridge). Otherwise, the gear of the drive can be damaged.
Tape guide surface
Detail A B
The Initial Position of the Threading Mechanism
Before the manual ejection procedure, tape slack must be removed in order to prevent tape damage. Rotate the gear mechanism located on the bottom of the drive counterclockwise to tighten the tape. After the tape slack has been removed, continue to turn the Loading motor shaft located on the bottom of the drive clockwise with a precision screwdriver until the tape cartridge is lifted out of the drive mechanism and is ejected. Return the drive to Sony for repair.
The SDX-550V supports the WORM function. This section explains the WORM function.
What is WORM?
WORM is an acronym for Write Once Read Many, a function that allows data to be written to the same place on a tape only once, but permits that data to be read from the tape for any number of times. The SDX-550V supports WORM cartridges. When a WORM cartridge is used with an application that supports the WORM function, data that has been written to a tape can not be accidentally deleted or overwritten. A WORM drive operates in the same manner as a non-WORM drive when used with a non-WORM cartridge (henceforth referred to as regular cartridge). The operation of a WORM drive and a non-WORM drive differs according to the type of cartridge that is being used.
Cartridge Regular Cartridge (without WORM logo) WORM Cartridge (with WORM logo) Waiting for Eject Read/Append-Write Enabled
Non-WORM drive WORM drive
Read/Write Enabled Read/Write Enabled
WORM cartridges can be distinguished from regular cartridges by their WORM logo and red shutters.
AIT-2 WORM cartridge: SDX2-50W
How to Write Data onto a WORM Cartridge
As with a regular cartridge, there is no limit on how many times data can be read from a WORM cartridge. When writing data to a WORM cartridge, the data can not be written to a portion of the tape that has already been written. When writing data onto a WORM cartridge, it is appended after data that has already been written onto the cartridge. Accordingly, move to the EOD area before writing data onto the cartridge.
SCSI Commands Supported by the WORM Drive
The WORM drives support the same SCSI commands that are supported by non-WORM drives. However, if an attempt is made to write to a portion of a tape where data has already been written, the following error information is returned: Sense Key = 07, ASC = 27h, ASCQ = 00: Persistent Write Protect or Sense Key=03, ASC=27h, ASCQ=04: Write Position Error.
AIT WORM-compliant Software
To find out whether your backup application is AIT WORM compliant, contact the manufacturer of the software.
Sony cannot accept liability for data written onto a WORM cartridge that is lost as a result of using this unit. Sony accepts no responsibility for any financial damages, lost profits, or claims made by third parties arising from the use of this product.
