Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD101 DVD Camcorder

Error message - no supported files found on this disc

Everytime I try to upload my pictures (movies or still) from my Sony Handycam DCR DVD101 to Pixela IMAGE MIXER software I get the following message: #1M01047 No supported files on this disc. I have tried several discs, both finalized and unfinalized, DVD-R and DVD-RW. Same message. I have also tried Nero software and it doesn't recognize the camera. I took it in for repair and all they did was clean the laser lens. Obviously, that didn't help.

Re: Error message - no supported files found on this disc

Hi there, I got the same problem.

All answers received are to finalize the discs or use Sony discs. Both were tried but nothing. I realize the camera was working Ok with Windows 2000 but that happened when I migrated to XP.

HAve you solved the problem as I see your post is very old.

Disc error 1300

Had the same problem after purchasing DVD+RW discs. Exchanged for DVD-RW discs and it worked. I guess they are formatted differently.

Sony DCR DVD101 Format Error

I had the same problem, but I didn't have any valueable data on the DVD-RW (which was a Sony brand disc, go figure...). So, I backed up all the videos on the disc, tried to format the disc to get it ready to be able to be used again, and got the whole "Access Error" when I was formatting the disc. I tried both the VR and Video format options, the Video option came back with teh "Access Error" while the VR option came back with "Format Error". I put the disc into my DVD burner in my computer and was going to try and format it manually. But, as the disc popped up in My Computer and I right-clicked on the disc icon, there were no options to format the disc, which is unusual. I tried it in a laptop that's about a year old (versus the other computer which was about 4 years old), and as I right-clicked on the disc, an option was entitled "Erase this CD-RW". Obviously this was not a CD-RW, but I tried it anyways, and bam, after about half a minute, the mini DVD-RW was formatted! After that, I put it in the Handycam DCR DVD101 drive, formatted it using the Video setting (my preference), and now it works.

So, moral of the story is...try and format the disc manually on a DVD burning enabled computer. If it doesn't work, try a newer computer. But that's all I have, hope this helps!
