Panasonic VDR-D50P camcorder says all disk are incompatable

I have a Panasonic VDR-D50P that says every disk I put in it is incompatable, including allof the ones I had already made recordings on over the past few months. I am using the proper disks and they woked fine before now. All of a sudden it doesn´t seem to read any disk properly.

You need to do formatting on the disc when using it for the first time. Remember, formatting needs to be done by camcorder. If you used the disc before and formatted it on different machine - it won't work.

Good news.. you should be able to put the disc back in to the device that you recorded in on... and go to the menu to do the finalize... in fact, you may be able to add more to you disc prior to the finalize process if you want...
once it's finalized you should be able to view on other equipment... your files should all be there as well.

Let me know how you do!

Hello Dear lofbersj

#1
Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

I have a panasonic VDR D50 camcorder. All disc that I am using now are saying disc incompatible. It worked fine for about two years but now it just does not work. Please help..


The problem will probably be with the laser lens being dirty or slightly out of adjustment. A good cleaning of the lens could fix the problem, otherwise the unit will have to be serviced. Take it into a local camera repair shop, or contact Panasonic for an authorized repair center:

Get an estimate before having it repaired, since the cost of repair can be considerable, and sometimes it's better to just buy a new camcorder.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I accidently formated my panasonic VDR-D210 DVD using the DVD recorder menu. Can I unformat the DVD and recover my video?


When you reformat again using the proper disk, you should be ok with formatting. Whether or not you can recover the video is yet to be seen. Regards, Joe

Does it ask you to format the disk? You will need to format it before it is ready for use. Good Luck!
