When I insert a new DVD RW it says can not read disc check disc. The camera will not give me the option to initialize disc either. These are brand new discs that I am using. I can record with older disc...


You have to be sure you bought the correct disks. Look in your manual or your camera. You could use DVD-RW or DVD+RW. They are not universal. You have to use the correct version. You also may want to try a DVD-R or DVD+R. They are cheaper but are not re-recordable. They are not erasable either. A good thing if you don't want to "accidentally" erase your movies!

Problems with my Canon DVD model DC 210


make sure that "plus rw" is allowed to be used (dvd+rw). My DC330 requires "minus rw" (dvd-rw).

(You'd think the gurus would differentiate their specs better, no?)

Also, I just learned today that the charger needs to be plugged into to be able to finalize a disk. Found the answer in a review on Amazon, rather than in the manual. That's an hour of my life I'd like to get back.

Format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

MiniDVD+RW can not be recognized


The Canon DC210 will only work with 'minus' format DVDs. It will not work with 'plus' format DVDs.

When you use DVD-RW discs you will be able to initialise the discs.

Not recognizing mini dvdrw


DVD-R discs can be used with no preparation, but a DVD-RW must be initialised before it can be used for the first time.

You may also have to initialise a DVD-RW if you get the message "UNABLE TO RECOGNIZE THE RECORDING MODE OF THE DISC" .

Also, make sure you always use DVD "minus" format discs - the DC210 will not work with any DVD "plus" format discs.

When you initialise the disc you will be asked to chose between Video mode and VR mode. Most DVD players will play a Video mode disc, but a VR mode disc can be edited with the camcorder. My preference is Video mode - I can then play on a DVD player and edit on a PC.

The DC210 will only work with with Mini DVD -R or -RW. I had the same problem when the BestBuy salesman sold me +RW Mini DVD with the DC210. I went back to the store and got them changed for +RW and I was then able to use the DC210.

Dvdrw will not format in camera


I use Memorex and Sony Mini DVD-RW in my DC210 and both work fine.

To BUGFUZZ - the DC210 does not support DVD+RW - you must use either DVD-RW or DVD-R.
