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.

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

How do I transfer recorded movies to a external hard drive?


That depends. What device did you use to record these movies? If you recorded a movie using a DVD recorder, connect your external hard drive to a PC device which has a DVD rom. Go into the files, copy and past the file to your external drive.

Camera shows hd movie recording disableD


HD movie recording disabled: SOLVED for 2 HDRSR5's (work and home): After copying all movies to computer, "DELETE ALL" from HD view. Evidentally if you have been deleting movies using computer, the still images used for 'scene selections' remain and fill its capacity. You must be in HD view when choosing Delete All (that is, rather than just deleting all Standard movie clips)

How do I transfer the mini DVD to Movie Maker


With your Recorded DVD-R Disc "Finalized", and in the DVD player on your computer, you should be able to browse to your videos with Movie Maker.

In MovieMaker, on the left side where it lists:
Movie Tasks
1. Capture Video
Capture from Video device
Import video . . .

You want to "Import Video", by clicking that and browsing to the DVD-R to find what could be MPG files, or VOB files. They're both MP2 DVD format video and audio files.

Tip: Right Clicking in the Import Video Dialogue Box where the files are listed and selecting View / Thumbnails, will present a view of the scenes in each video.

"MOVIE RECORDING DISABLED"


Breanna,

Unfortunately, it looks like it is a problem with the disc you have in the camera. If you have another disc, put it in and see if the error message remains. Obviously, the new disc won't have your original video on it, but it will help determine if the cause is the disc.
