Problems with my Canon DVD model DC 210

I cannot get this to recognize my disc, a sony dvd+rw for handycam. When I get the screen that says disc operations, I cannot scroll down to initialize the disc. The panasonic disc will work. Is the type of disc I am trying to use the problem?

    I am using a Sony DVD-R 1.4GB disc in my canon dc-210, and I am unable to access the option for initializing the disc. I've tried it plugged in as well as on just battery... no go. Anybody have some words of wisdom?

Make sure that "plus rw" is allowed to be used (dvd+rw). My DC330 requires "minus rw" (dvd-rw).

(You'd think the gurus would differentiate their specs better, no?)

Also, I just learned today that the charger needs to be plugged into to be able to finalize a disk. Found the answer in a review on Amazon, rather than in the manual. That's an hour of my life I'd like to get back.

I get a message on the screen that says, "recording disabled." How do I fix this? I have a Sony Handycam DVD/RW Wide LCD


This message appears when mini dvd disc got some error in recording tracks, if its rewritable mini disc then format it as option is available in camera settings menu and if disc is once writable then use another disc as it can not be formatted.
Caution: Format will erase/ delete all files on dvd disc and refresh the dvd disc.

You are using DVD+RW instead of DVD-RW. This camera does not support DVD+RW.

Had the same problem after purchasing DVD+RW discs. Exchanged for DVD-RW discs and it worked. I guess they are formatted differently.

My LED screen got damaged, and I don't know how to finalize a mini disc in order to playback on computer and transfer to DVD. Can you tell me how to finalize the DVD-RW disc so I can play it back??


My LED is damaged too...don't know how it happened, but..if you hook your handycam to your TV - you can see the LED on the TV and know where to press on the LED to finalize.

The DC210 will only work with with Mini DVD -R or -RW. I had the same problem when the BestBuy salesman sold me +RW Mini DVD with the DC210. I went back to the store and got them changed for +RW and I was then able to use the DC210.
