Try to turn off the camera for 5 minutes and when you try to finalize make sure its plug in to a power outlet dont fianlize using just the battery, after 5 minutes power it back on then try it again....

Hope that helps..............

I have dubbed vcr tape to a Sony DVD-RW disc and tried playing it back through a toshiba player and it keeps coming up Bad Disk. My PC won't even recognise it. When started dubbing the screen displayed 1hr...


Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.

(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.

The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)

I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.

Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.

You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.

Unaible to down load vidio data from canon dc310 to my pc


Try to copy directly Your camera disc to conventional DVD, without downloading files to computer. It is possible with Nero Burning Rom in a disc copy mode. And before it, try to play an original at Your DVD player, or from the camera direcly to TV. If it works, then make a direct copy as well. Another solution is insert original dvd to computer and copy all carpets directly from dvd to HDD. Then, using MPEG Streamclip (free program) test Your files. If You can see the image - perfect. Any video can be converted a DVD format without problem.

I have a samsung vp-dc171w mini dvd recorder. I was told at the time of purchase that the disc would replay in a dvd player but none of mine play it. Is there an adaptor or something needed for it to play...


If your using DVD-RW make sure you format it in video mode. Do your recordings then when you want play them back on a dvd player you have to finalise the disk in the camcorder first.
If you want to continue recording you will have to un finalise the disk.

When I record a dvd on my vr375 it will not play on my DSE dvd player .I am useing a Sony -RW DVD


before the disc will play on other players, you need to "finalise" the disc. Finalisation ensures compatibility with other devices. Go into the "Setup" menu, and look for "Disk Manager", there will be a finalise option. select the option, and after approx. 3mins the disc will play on other players.

Format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !

Unable tp play discs on computor


Have you finalised the disc ? Go into the menu and where you format the disc there is an option to finalise. It should then play on your laptop. Hope that helps ;)
