SOURCE: did not burn dvd
The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD
Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."
The DW-100 is really more for archiving your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to your problem:
1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def, you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder to your TV via an HDMI cable.
2. If you want to have standard DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to your computer and convert them to standard-definition using video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good) to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).
I've used the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3 instead of letterboxed.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

You can not have any MXP Files in your play list or in memory. The DW-100 Can not burn these files. Once you delete/remove the MXP Scenes from the the Camera the Burner will work fine.

This could be happening for a number of reasons, and one of them could be a slightly compromised laser lens. It could need to be cleaned, or, if it's been through heavy usage, it might need a slight adjustment. Otherwise, there could be some software/hardware random conflicts, which you pretty much have to live with.
There are a number of issues that can occur with dvd recorders, and media is a critical issues, and all dvd/w or r/w media is not compatible with all players. If you've changed the brand of you media, that might be an issue.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
