    Did finalized with a/c adapter plugged in. Its after it is finalized it won't play in DVD recorder, I get the message 'wrong disc'. This was my grand-daughters Nativity Play and it is so annoying as it has happened before. As I said before it is pot luck with this camcorder. Will not even let me unfinalize to try again.

Hi all you need to do is have it powering with the a/c adapter plugged in and into the wall it will then finalize. It wont do it if you do not have power going to it. You would think they would put this in the instructions.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder


I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Cheers.

I want the pictures and video off my DVD-RW on to my computer


Yes, you must finalize to view the dvd in a stand-alone dvd player.

No, battery doesn't have to be charged but the camera does have to be plugged in to do finalizing.

After, finalizing the disk, and you are in fact using DVD-RW (re-writable) disks, yes you can un-finalize them within the Canon camera to record more video.

I have used the same 3 rewritable disks on my Canon over and over again to record many hours of footage.

Transfer from my canon dc210 to my pc


If you can play the DVD disc on your computer you will be able to transfer footage and edit it.

Put the DVD disc into your PC's DVD drive, then

1. Select 'start'
2.
Select 'My Computer'
3.
Find your PC's DVD drive in the display of devices shown, right click on it, then left click on 'Explore' in the drop down list.
4. Copy all the files you see shown with the 'Explore' option to a folder on your hard drive.

You can now use the software you normally use to edit the files you've just transfered to your hard drive.

Cannot finalize dvd-r


Have solved the finalized problem by simply looking on the Canon website and read that you have to plug the camera into the wall to do it! If only they simply put this in the manual!!! Goodluck!

The FORM that you have to be on has to be VR not VIDEO. But the bad thing is on VR you cant finalize and play it as a DVD only on the computer, unlike what you can do on VIDEO.
