I have panasonic VDR250 with me. When I try to copy the contents of DVD in my laptop using dvd drive, the laptop does not show any contents. I have a DELL laptop with me.
But if I use the same DVD in my friend's TOSHIBA laptop, it show the contents.
Please try to help me to understand the issue. Is this any formatting issue? what could be the solution for it
Some laptop DVD drives will not be compatible with recorded media. The formatting of the disc can be the problem too. A sesion on a disc has to be closed in a certain way to provide compatibility with all equipment. Is the DELL an older unit with just a reader and not read/write capability? Let me know the model of yuor DELL to further assist you.

I have the same problem. I looked thru the operating manual and the DVD-D100 model does not have the fuction to open or play the files on any computers. Apperantly you need to have the model that allows for a card slot (which is the DVD-D200) model.
I finalized the mini-dvd and inserted the mini-dvd inside my dvd reader on my laptop and it reads the content. Now i have to convert all the "VIDEO_TS" vob etc files to hopefully a simple avi or mpeg...arghhh....so frustrating.
Unless you have a DVD copy program such as "Nero" on your machine a way to do this would be to "Import" the content of your Mini into Windows Movie Maker, edit it if you need to and then write it out to a normal DVD on your PC's drive.
plug the camera in via usb so the camera shows up as a removeable drive. if it picks up the camera as a DVD burner instead of drive, install the DVD-RAM drivers (in compatibility mode for XP SP2 w/ administrative privileges if necessary) and browse the contents of the disc - copy and paste the VRO file to your hard drive and rename it as an mpg - should be readable at that point. good luck.
I had this same issue...I bet you're using DVD-R, am I correct?
Apparently you can't copy video from DVD-R to the HD Writer. Period. Just can't do it. (Would be nice if they mentioned this in the manual.)
You can only use DVD-RW and must format the disc to VR format, not Video format.
I'm using a program called Handbrake (free) which I think can convert your .vob files (from the Video_TS folder on your DVD) to quicktime files, or similar, so that you can actually do something with the video...
Best of luck, I'm really no expert, and I probably won't return to this page, so a reply to me is likely not going to be read by me...
