Question about JVC VDW14DU Single Unit 2x DVD-RW Storage Media
Hello. I have been filming using a Sony Dcr-DvD105 DVD video camera, using three of the above DVD RW discs(double sided), all fresh from the wrapper. All discs were great but one side of one disc failed to copy onto my hard drive using my usual editing suit(Ulead studio 10).Unfortunatly as is always the case it was the footage I needed the most. I attempted to transfer using other software,Nero,DVD Shrink, Ulead DVD movie factory, Windows movie maker and Womble DVD wizard.All of the above reported an error at about the 70% mark.The disc was unmarked and played back in the camera perfectly. I did try to explore the disc and copy and paste to the hard drive but again the transfer stalled at about 70% and eventually failed. Windows media player will sometimes open the disc and replay the first half, again it eventually fails and the player stops responding. I did suspect the cd rom so I used the disc in three different desk top computers and the results were the same if not worse. I have browsed the net with not much luck, and e-mailed JVC And Sony support(who will no doubt remind me they are not liable for lost data and point me back to the FAQ?s). As the disc plays in the camera with no problem, I am hoping someone my have a clever work around or some magic recovery software. No hope is some hope?
I am just throwing these out there as food for thought. Make sure you ended the recording on that other side. If a DVD is left open(meaning more could be written to it) other dvd players have a hard time reading the info. Put in one of the 2 sided disc's that worked. how does the camera recognize the disc? Then insert the troubled disc and see if the disc info is being read the same. i.e. disk size, manufactuer, open/closed? Check for a firmware upgrade for your DVD burner/player(s). Let me know how things work out. Tim

Have you tried a program called Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier? It's a free download and fixed my DVD errors (again Sony camcorder recorded). I, too, would get an error, and was unable to copy or transfer files. This program fixes the errors, and I have been able to successfully copy all my DVDs! Hope this helps!

Sony Mini DVD dcr Camcoder cannot open by windows without hardware, it mean you must convert video data direct from camcorder using cable, you cannot copy or convert mini dvd to PC, so don't buy this Sony product (espesially camcorder using Mini DVD). Capek dehhhh.

Does your camera have other outputs, i.e., composite-video and L/R audio ?
If the disk "plays" inside your video-camera, then use a "video-capture" USB device, to "play" the movie into the USB device, and "record" from the USB device into your computer.
