Cameras which support external control of zoom, focus, and iris normally have a port for this purpose. LANC is the most common, but it appears that your camera doesn't have a LANC port.

The logo on the manual I could find indicates that it was standard 8mm, not Hi8 or Digital8. If you are in a PAL region, then most likely it is the PAL version of 8mm.

If the camera is following DCIM standards, then there should be a 4 digit ID number appended to the end of a 4 digit prefix to form the filename. The standard is that when a folder is filled (the counter reaches 9999), a new folder is created and the counter starts over again at 1.
