Lite-on 5007 dv link bad audio

i got the 5007 because it had the dv link. now i can’t get decent audio when i try to record from my camcorder. it starts okay, but within seconds just goes silent. i tried two camcorders, three cables, and two different 5007 recorders (both with the current firmware updates). talked to liteon but they blamed the camcorder. any suggestions?

Similar problem with my Sony TRV digital 8 DV out to US LiteON 5005 with 1098 firmware, except the sound only has problem while monitoring the recording process on TV, but the resulting DVD+RW 2 hr mode turned out fine as far as I can tell.

Did you check the resulting DVD itself to see if it is okay?

thank you!
that fixed it for me.
