Question about Canon DC220 DVD Camcorder
I initialized my DVD in VIDEO format. The disk does not have any more space to record. Therefore, I thought of finalizing it, now even after putting the camcorder in the charging mode, I am trying to finalize the disc but somehow the option itself is disabled.
Can somebody pls help me with this problem.
You have to plug the camera into the wall charger in order to finalize. I was having the same problem. Once finalized, I transferred the disk to the PC. You need DVD decrypter software in order to view the videos on the disk. Canon does not supply this. Canon recommended that I use one of several free downloads. They said download "DVD Decrypter" which I downloaded. Type DVD Decrypter into Google search and you will find it. It will rip it and download it to your computer. I then viewed the video with Windows Media. It works fine.

I tried EVERYTHING that was possible, including a phone call to Canon technical support. This is the solution I came up with on my own:
Using the "A/V" port on the camcorder, connect it to a device which has recording capabilities. I used a VCR which I have connected to my PC for dubbing old videos. I simply connected the camera to the input of the VCR, and connected the output of the VCR to my PC.
I realize this is not an accessible solution for everyone. I would expect, though, that you would be able to contact a media specialist - or even a high school - in your town and surrender a few dollars to have them do the transfer.
I did learn something else - a new camera needs to be purchased. This was completely unnecessary, and I am done wasting my money on this camera!
