Using Verbatim DVD-R DL on Canon Camcorder 310 DVD
I gave the Camcorder as a present to my son for Christmas, but he cannot play it on his computer. I don't know the brand, but it is about 4 years old and is using Windows XP. He has finalized the DVD and it plays fine in the Camcorder and on their DVD player that is attached to his TV. When he places the mini DVD into the DVD drive on the computer, the DVD drive does not recognize it at all. He has, however, played regular DVDs on it and they work just fine. Any idea what the problem might be?

El manual dice que algunos discos no vas a funcionar con la cámara, pero por supuesto no hay nada en el sitio de eso.
Yo sabía acerca de un problema similar, ya que estaba tratando con los discos DVD + RW. He encontrado algo la solución en la web de Canon: DVD-R/RW y DVD + R / RW son similares, pero en general los formatos no interchangable.
Las videocámaras Canon DVD sólo utilice discos DVD-R/RW. DVD-R/RW y DVD + R / RW son similares, pero en general, los formatos no interchangable. Las videocámaras Canon DVD sólo uso * DVD-R/RW o DVD-R DL (DC10, DC20, DC100, DC40 y no son compatibles con discos DVD-R DL). Si un disco DVD + R / RW se carga en una videocámara Canon DVD de la videocámara mostrará un mensaje "Error de Disco" después de que intenta leer el disco.
* Discos DVD-R de doble cara también se puede utilizar sin embargo, cada lado deberá ser inicializado antes de su uso.
Espero que esto le sea de ayuda; recuerde calificar esta repuesta. Suerte.
I have this video camera. It seemed like a good deal at $200 at Christmas time. It is suppose to be able to record on DVD-R, +R disks. (re-writable and write disks) I have had issues with not being able to finalize the disk. I found you needed to keep at least 5 minutes on the disk to finalize it. It will not play in any DVD player or a Computer till it is finalized. The info stored on the disk is in RAW form. Finalizing it will create a "lead in" and "lead out" and a menu for your computer and/or DVD player to understand. A large part of whether it will play or not, is what is your DVD Player or DVD Drive on you computer capable of? DVD Players usually will play anything that has been finalized, same with your DVD drive on your computer. BUT! Yep there's a but, sorry. DVD players and DVD Drives sometimes can only read one type of disk. Either a DVD-R or DVD+R, some may not be able to read a re-writable disk too. Look through your manuals on your Laptop and your DVD Player(s) and try to match the correct media (i.e. DVD-R or DVD+R Write or Re-Writable) I found that between my PC and my DVD Player, that DVD+R would work without a hitch for both electonics. Download that software that Samsung gave you in with the video camera. It may end up loading the driver software to help you're computer to recognize the video DVD you are trying to play.
Oh, and make sure you really do have a DVD player/burner drive installed. I went to play a movie on my wife's Laptop and found it came with a CD drive and no DVD drive. That's not what I ordered and I was about a year to late to complain to the company. :( Hope that helps.
You do need some software to record a DVD, but most computers come with it. Depending on the age of the computer is the DVD drive one that records or a play only unit? You don't need a particular brand of DVD but I suggest using a reputable brand, Verbatim, Memorex etc rather than the 'el cheapo' varieties as moves are priceless memories. Better still, make two copies.
All you should have to do is finalize the disc. Put it in your DVD drive and select the scenes and photos. you need to have DVD playback software to play the disc also if its a DUAL layer disc you have to make sure the drive in your PC can play DL. Enjoy, Lee
A Dual Layered (DVD-R DL) disc has two recording layers on the same side of the disc. No recording is made on the 'other' side of the disc.
Finalising the disc will finalise both layers. Most probably your computer DVD drive cannot read both layers of the DVD-R DL disc. DVD-R DL discs can only be played back on DVD devices that are compatible with dual layered discs.
Check your computer DVD drive spec to see whether it can read DL discs.
I know it won't play in a dvd player till it is finalized. Leave it in camera mode, hit menu, and scroll down till you see the option to finalize. If you finalize it, it should play in a dvd player. I am having a problem with my camera(same model) where it won't finalize the disc. Any help out there?
