SOURCE: changing a -vr format

You're right - only DVDs initialised in VR mode can be edited on the camcorder. Those initialised in VIDEO mode cannot be edited on the camcorder, but can be played on most DVD players and can be edited on a PC.

The good news is, if you are using a DVD-RW disc you can change the mode by reinitialising it to be in VIDEO mode, but you will lose all the previous content during initialisation. DVD-R discs cannot be initialised.

See this Fixya solution for details on how to initialise a disc.

To Junie1939 - No, it's not possible to change a DVD from 'plus' format to 'minus' format, sorry - you have to go buy 'minus' format DVDs, or change the DVD reader on your PC. Remember the Canon DC210 only takes 'minus' format DVDs.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Disc wont play on computer

Hi June,

Have you tried another computer aside from teh one that you are currently using?

Some of the Videos in DVD-RW has its hardware compatibility. It is like the normal Video cassette tape there is Hi8 Video 8, ETC.

You just need to look for the computer that has latest model of the DVD player (DVD rom drive).

If still not loading here's the T/S,

To Open Registry Editor.
1. Click Start, select Run
2. Type "regedit" hit enter
If using Win vista or win 7
1. Click start go to start search
2. Type "regedit" it will show up on the start menu window then click on it or hit enter key.

In the navigation pane, Search for the subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

If not, Follow this:
1. Click on Computer
2. Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. Click on SYSTEM
4. Click on CurrenControlSet
5. Click on Control
6. Click on Class
7. Then look for 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
8. In the right pane, select UpperFilters and delete it. Do the same with LowerFilters

Note: You can use Search function to find the mentioned subkey quickly.

Note: Before performing the next step, you may want to back up your registry data to be able to restore it in future.

SOURCE: Finalizing the DVD

Well this sounds like the disk was removed too fast from the camera before it had ended writing, you need to stop filming, wait at least 1 minute then remove disk because it ends the disk write not you yourself.

Wedding Videos?


There are various programs available that you can use for editing your wedding videos. Examples of programs are like Windows movie maker, Muvee, Magix, pinnacle studio, Adobe Premiere elements and all of them are relatively inexpensive video editing software's. You can just download them from the internet and they can help if you're just editing small things, adding titles and menus. They are just basic programs and it will be very easy for you to figure your way around them. Good luck in your editing.

How do I find the delete option on my hitachi camcorder?


Hi! The solution to your problem is Three fold.

First make sure that your Camcorder is in the Disc Navigation mode to be able delete your required scene. When the camcorder is in the play back mode the delete scene won't appear.

The second situation is to check if your scene is not locked because if it is locked you are not able to delete it.
Supposing that your scene is not locked then check what type of DVD disc you have. The discs labelled DVD Ram, DVD+RW, and the Card can be deleted. The DVD-RW can be deleted only when in VR mode and not the VF mode. Other types of discs like the DVD R can not be deleted.

Another way of deleting a scene after it has been recorded on a disc that's not deletable is to transfer the recorded scene to a computer disc and then edit it off.

D-VR18DTKB - When dubbing from video to DVD is it possible to edit a section out without stopping the dubbing, winding tape on to clear the section and then go through the whole dubbing routine again ?...


Get sycronized because you're going to have to stop the video player and the CD you are dubbing onto at the exact second or have a glitch in it. I used to do weddings and other video services and used two sometimes three cameras. If I were you I could edit my video before I downloaded it to a master copy unless of course you have a hi-tech CD recorder with a built in dubbing feature. I didn't but one of my cameras did. I would make a rough video mixing different scenes from different cameras and get the scenes and angles where I wanted them in the video. When it looked right I usually edited music over it or narrated it, didn't have a CD player more less a recorder back then. If you are using a camera or a video recorder that will fade in and out use that feature to do your editing. It works perfect and looks good, If it fades in different colors use a color that kinda reflects on the previous scene or that will set up the next scene. When you get your tape like you want it burn it on to a DVD!. this will make a good master disk. I am going out on a limb and assuming that you are using video tape to do this, but if your using CD's the same principle applies. It can be a lot of fun and when you get good at it and get a computer with the right software you can move heads and add and replace people. If you have access to a computer you can download software for free that will let you do a professional of a rough CD to your master and it will do most of the work. Remember, if you copy a second generation Cd you can get pretty good quality but the more it's copied the more quality it looses. Good luck and have fun; dhgill

I Have a Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder Certain shows or movies i try to record , I get a pop-up saying " Cannot record in +VR mode " . What is +vr mode and how do I change it?


VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewritable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again at a later time, in VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.

What is +vr and how do I remove it


VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewriteable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again in later time, on VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.

Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD also support VR mode-like features.

Accordingly when DVD recorders became a viable option the features offered by <Video Mode> were minimal - the linear structure did not allow post recording editting or non-linear playback. Thus the DVD Forum devised Video Recording (VR) mode.

Unlike DVD-Video this uses a much simplier file structure that allows non-linear modification to the recorded data. This means features such as partial erase, editting, playlists, simulataneous record/playback, mixing of different media types (JPEG, MPEG1/2/4, MP3, WMA, WMV etc) and, in future models, dual record are all possible."

That basically summerises the differences: video is a linear recording that should end up DVD-Video compatible, VR is a digital recording mode that allows HDD-like functionality on disc.

Do you need to always be able play your recorded DVD-RW discs on other DVD Players? If yes you have to use Video Mode, although some players will play VR mode discs, and you can test this easily by giving it a go.

The main differences are:

DVD Video mode on DVD-RW

Plus points: Provides good compatibility (70% plus). That’s the only plus, plain and simple.

Negative Points: Only simple linear editing possible, really just hiding a title. You can reuse space only when you delete the last title or completely reformat but lose everything in the process. No defect management. Requires finalisation to play in other DVD Players. No possibility of time-slip, i.e. recording and playing back at the same time.

DVD VR mode (Video Recording)

Plus points: Better use of recording rates by having intermediate resolutions. Defect management so reliable. Time-slip on 2 speed media if supported by the recorder, allowing record and playback at the same time. Non-linear editing. Any space freed is reused automatically (think hard-drive or Mini-Disc) and added to the remaining time.

Negative Points: Not very compatible with existing DVD Players, plain and simple.

Of course if you have a hard-drive based recorder then all the negatives are wiped out, as you use VR mode on the hard-drive which gives you all the pluses of VR mode, then record to DVD-RW in Video Mode to give you the compatibility to play the disc elsewhere.
- A recording on DVD-RAM will always use VR mode
- A recording on DVD-R will always use Video mode
- A recording on DVD-RW can be either Video or VR depending which is set before the recording is made.
- A recording to DVD+RW or DVD+R will always use Video mode
- Many HDD/DVDR combi recorders will record to the HDD in VR mode and allow you to dub (digitally) to DVD-R in Video mode.

Can't save individual scenes as separate mpg files


Instead of using the camera suite... download your video from your camcorder directly to your PC in a folder (video's). there you will see each individual file (scene) that you took that day instead of one large scene. Then you can download/edit whatever scene you want into movie maker or just copy a sene right to a dvd

Delete Scenes


The problem will be with the mode. If you are using the VR mode for replay, it will not delete the scenes usually if the DVD is other than Panasonic. Try the other mode

The FORM that you have to be on has to be VR not VIDEO. But the bad thing is on VR you cant finalize and play it as a DVD only on the computer, unlike what you can do on VIDEO.
