Re: Can not download film from DVD-R. Should I insert...

Why not try a movie downloader to help you? With movie downloader, you can download movie in three ways:

Method one:
Type name of the movie you want to the search box of Video Download Studio. It will help you to
search your movie from thousands of movie & video websites. The search result
comes from more than 100 countries and the areas. If you want to search movies in
other languages, for instance, Chinese, German or Japanese, you only need to type the
movie’s corresponding name and then you can obtain many search results.

Method two:
If you already have the URL of that movie, then you could just copy the URL and click
on the “add URL” button, Video Download Studio will download the movie for you with high
quality in fast speed.

Method three:
If the movie you want to download is playing on the web site, then you could click”
auto capture”. Video Download Studio designs with the latest technology; it will automatically
detect and download the movie for you.

Im trying to view previously recorded videos on my camcorder but its asking me to reformat it

Yes, this happened to my miniDVD-R and -RW disks as well. No, don't reformat the disk !
I've been able to recover all (if not most) of the contents - video clips from those (bad/corrupted) miniDVD-RW ... and miniDVD-R disks ... (that I had recorded using the Samsung camcorder). I use the software tool - IsoBuster Pro . Inserted the mini-DVD into the DVD drive on my PC/laptop, and started the software . The process (to recover) may be very long .. i.e. it may take several to many hours for one miniDVD disk ... but it eventually enable me to retrieve the (lost) video clips.

I did not finalise my mindvd, insert in my pc now

Sorry but 1000's of others get this problem with these stupid DVD type cameras, only one way still of filming your movies if you want good safe future working films is to buy the Digital 8 tape camera, it is recorded for like then, safe & sound, DVD cameras are silly gimmicks and go wrong like Hard-drives do often.

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data

I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

Move dvd to movie maker

Finalise the disk in your camera. Run WMM and insert the disk in to the PC's drive. In WMM under "Capture Video" select "Import". Click "My Computer" on the next prompt and then click your DVD drive. That will get you started - use Help to find your way around WMM which allows you to write your edited video to CD/DVD etc. Have fun!

Canon DC220 DVD Finalization 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.

Burning videos to a dvd

This may be due to the fact that the Aiptek A-HD records to a quicktime format. There is a copy of quicktime in the disk that came with the camcorder. Now I don't know if this is quicktime Pro or not (I work on a mac, so quicktime is already installed, but the comps at my school are vista based) but if you don't have quicktime pro (you can check by right clicking on a video in quictime and if some of the options are unusable because they say "pro" next to them, you don't have quicktime PRO. It's $20 for quicktime pro, and it's very well worth the money. You can change format without losing quality, and so much more! Also WMM is not very HD compatible, you should put it in DVD format :) Hope this helped- (youtube user) animation508

Transfering my video tapes to DVD

A couple of quick observations: -If you have two or more optical drives you could be inserting the disk in the wrong one. -You may have just misspoke when you said *insert into the DVD/CD burner drive a CD-R disc* but just to make sure you need to be inserting a blank DVD disk and not a blank CD. No offence intended, especially since I?ve made both of these mistakes in the past myself :)
