guys hope you all found the solution like me who had same issue. if you noticed, it says about the aspect ratio and that means the formated disc aspect ratio is not compatible with the aspect ratio your camera need. so re-formating the dvd with right aspect ratio solved the problem quickly and we have peace.

SOURCE: How can i fix the "movie Recording Disabled" on sony DCR-DVD108?

Hi there. I undertand how upset you must be. I would be if it happened to me. Did you check the manual for this error code?

If you didn't, I'll tell you what it means. It means one of 2 things: 1) you have a bad disk or:
2) you are trying to use a disk that has been finalized. Once a disk has been finalized, it cannot be recorded on.

I'm sorry, I know it's a bummer, and it's not what you wanted to hear, but it happens occasionally. There is no fix for it. You just have to get a new disk and record it again.

Thanks for using FixYa, and if you have any further questions, just comment back. If you don't mind, please rate my solution a fixya.

SOURCE: Sony Handycam says movie recording disabled. How

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.

  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.

the error c:31:23 error pertains to one of the reel (part that turns the tape) is malfunctioning. although you can play back videos, you would definitely have issue w/ recording, rewinding or fast forwarding the tape.what you can do is to turn the camcorder off.remove the battery and ac adapter for at least a minute.insert the battery or reconnect the adapter.you can also try pressing the reset button (located near the top of the speaker, on the panel where lcd screen goes to).make sure cam is on when you do that.if still your getting this problem, service would be needed for your cam.hope this helps :)

Most probably it is an issue with the disc. If the disc is corrupted, it will display the error message to prevent spoiling the lens of the Camcorder. Please use a different disc and it should resolve the issue. If the issue persists with different discs, it may require service..
However, I suggest that you reset the Camcorder by pressing the Reset button behind the LCD panel (Near to the USB port) on the Camcorder) Please make sure that you have turned ON the Camcorder while pressing the reset button.

SOURCE: sony dcr-sx40. Restore deleted movies from the camera hard drive

The answer is YES if you take care. Do it as follows.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

First things first: DO NOT take any more movies with the hard drive(within your camcorder) that you want to recover movies from. Because if you take any more files or save any data to your hard drive, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the HD to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive".

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your movies with this software called Wondershare Photo Recovery (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link(the program also recover MOVIES and music files):

Photo Recovery for Windows (if you are running Windows OS)
Photo Recovery for Mac (for Apple Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your cam(hard disk) until you can recover the files safely!

"movie recording disabled". How do I enable it?


If you are using DVD-RW, format it because it got some error in data writing.
and if its DVD-R, use another disc and try to finalize existing DVD-R / DVD-RW to get data.
Thanks.

DCR-DVD308 Camcorder problem


There sas a tiny screw probably from the manufacturers that was sitting on the DVD mechanism witch prevented the DVD to sit properly. So I removed the loose screw. Now works wonderfully.
I checked everything on the camera and doesn't have any screws missing. Thanks. Grace
