Try this - Put the disk back into the camera and try recording a further short clip. If that works then finalise and try playing back in camera/on PC. It may help.

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.

I want to put my videos onto my computer i have a disc dvd- rw which belongs to my sony viseo camera dvd100e everytime i try to open it in e drive it says my disc is corrupted and unreadable... how do i...


Sony Camcorders that record to DVD's require you to Finalise the DVD before you can use it on anything else.

If you have the Manual for your Camera look at the section which explains how to Finalise the DVD.

The finalise function is accessed via the Camera's setup menu.

Let me know how you get on. Regards,

Dvd to prints


You can either
1. Transfer the still pictures from the camcorder to the PC, and then, either
1.1 use your PC software to print the pictures, or
1.2 use an online photo processing lab to print the pictures for you.
OR
2. Take the disc from the camcorder to a local photo printing shop and ask them to print the pictures you want printed.

But first ...
before you can transfer pictures or video from your Canon DC210 to your PC you need to finalise the disc in the camcorder.

You also need to make sure that the DVD drive on your PC is capable of reading a DVD-R, DVD-R DL or DVD-RW format as these are the only disk formats that the DC210 will handle. Not all PC DVD drives can read these formats.

To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then, switch on the camera, put it into playback mode, Press 'Func.', select main menu, select 'disk operations', select 'finalise'. Don't move or shake the camera or switch it off whilst the finalising step is underway - this could cause problems.

Once finalising is complete, take it out of the camcorder and then follow steps 1.1, 1.2 or 2 above.

Good Luck.

Cant transfer footage from Canon DC201 onto computer (and eventually internet) Do I need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer?


You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.

One of two things has gone wrong
1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely
2. You have not finalised the disk.

You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.

Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.

Mini DvD-RW problem


You've recorded your video and you're ready to view it on a PC.

Now you need to finalise the disk before you can see it on the PC, otherwise the PC will not be able to read it.

To finalise the disk, connect your camera to the power adapter, plug the adapter into a wall socket, and switch on the wall socket, then switch on the camera.

To get to the finalise step. switch on the camera, press FUNC (on the top left side of the camera), move the joystick down to get to MENU, press SET on the joystick, move the joystick down to get to DISC OPERATIONS, then select FINALIZE, using the SET on the joystick. Finalising will now start.

Make sure you do not move the camcorder or switch off the wall adapter during finalisation - this could cause problems.
