Recover VRO files

I was about to transfer my files to PC, but as I recorded one last scene, I got an error message about the movie function being disabled. I am now unable to read my recording on that one DVD-RW, neither on the handycam, nor on the PC. I tried to convert the 500MB VRO file with two different file conversion programs, but to no avail. Have I lost everything on this CD or is there a solution to this problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Movie Recording Disabled

guys hope you all found the solution like me who had same issue. if you noticed, it says about the aspect ratio and that means the formated disc aspect ratio is not compatible with the aspect ratio your camera need. so re-formating the dvd with right aspect ratio solved the problem quickly and we have peace.

Sorry to bother you sirs, but it seems that you know much about DVD Camcord playback problem. I have a question about my camcord video output format may i ask. I have a vro file that can'tbe recognized by my VLC player, so I use this VRO mp4 converter([url]http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/tips/vro-converter.html[/url] to convert the vro file to mp4. After that conversion process the .VRO file can be played again, but I do not know why the output has no audio output, no sound. Do you ever met such a kind of problem? VLC can play .VOB very well because I have checked. It should be similar to .VOB, but why VRO cannot be recognized by VLC Media Player, it doesn't make any sense. Is there any free and simple method to directly run .VRO file on my PC without using any third-party video conver

Aunsoft VRO to AVI Converter - Convert VRO Videos to AVI


Best Way to Deinterlace VRO Videos - Convert VRO to AVI <br /><br />.VRO files are created by DVD video recorders or camcorders with Mini-DVD disc using the DVD-VR format. The disc has a 'VR_MOVIE.VRO' file, containing the raw audio and video data for all video recordings. The recording metadata along with navigation data are stored in the 'VR_MANGR.IFO' file. A backup copy of this file (VR_MANGR.BUP) is presented as well. VRO Codecs: MPEG2, same as VOB but uncompressed raw video and audio. So in some cases you can treat the VRO files just like .VOB files, but in many cases you can not use, play or edit VRO file easily. <br /><br />Audio Video Interleave (AVI) is a means of digitally storing audio and video media content in a file for playback. AVI-formatted files employ the file extension .avi. The header portion of the AVI-formatted file provides details about the file contents, such as width, height, and frame rate, while the chunks of information store the actual audio and video data. A key advantage of AVI format is its ability to be played on the majority of computers worldwide. <br /><br />With Aunsoft <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/video-converter/">Best VRO File Converter</a></b>, we can convert VRO file to AVI with best quality, fastest converting speed, excellent A/V sync and so on. And we also can use the VRO File Converter to convert VRO file to friendly video formats just like mpg, wmv, mkv, mp4, mov, mpeg, dv, etc for playing on iPad, iPod, iPhone 4, iTunes, QuickTime, PSP, Apple TV, Android Phones, etc so that we can watch our favorite VRO conversion file everywhere. <br /><br />Follow the step to <b>convert VRO files to AVI</b> now. <br /><br />Step 1: Free download, install and launch <b><a href="http://download.aunsoft.com/video_converter/videoconverter_setup.exe">best VRO to AVI Converter</a></b>. <br /><br />Step 2: Click "Add" to browse the documents for the VRO videos you want to convert from DVD Recorder or Mini-DVD Disc. You can add more than one file at a time. <br /><br />Step 3: In the drop down list menu of "Format", please select the output video format you want to get. You want to convert VRO videos to AVI, just select AVI. Then specify a location on your computer where the new file should be saved. <br /> <br />Tip: If you want to trim or crop your VRO files and get the wanted part or area, if you want to replace original audio and add background music to the VRO videos, if you want to deinterlace, remove interlaces or image noises of the videos, please click "Edit" to get into editor windows and start your DIY process. <br /><br />Step 5: Click "Convert" to begin converting the VRO to AVI files. Quickly you could get your converted files with high quality. <br /><br />Now wish you have already known how to convert VRO files from DVD Recorders or Mini-DVD Discs to AVI.

Have you tried clicking "Preferences" - "Device Setting" - then "Drive Select" - if you have a DVD burner and the camera you must select which drive you want to read from (took me a while to find that one out),,, Hope that helps.

How do i play my dvd on a vista platform


I have the gx5020a camera, and found out that the VRO file is just MPEG2. So copy the VRO file onto your computer from your disc. Once its on your harddrive, you can right click on it and go to properties. Re-name your file from VRO to MPG, making sure that you still have the original VRO file in case you need it for other programs. Once I change it to MPG file name, I can use media player to play it and I have a DVD movie maker where i can edit and record to DVD.

Sony camcorder 'Movie recording disabled'


You need to finalize it in the camera, the one you used.

Then you should be able to access what little data if any on it.

If you can not get it to finalize then take both the camera and disk to a photo shop. They may be able to recover it for you.

Let us know the results. Good luck
