I had a similar problem with CDs. The cure in my case was a new drive. It is possible that the lens on the laser is dirty in which case it should be cleaned. Your local shop should stock cleaning kits,

Says blank DVD-RW is not formatted, then formats -- then error


I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.

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.

Changing a -vr format


You're right - only DVDs initialised in VR mode can be edited on the camcorder. Those initialised in VIDEO mode cannot be edited on the camcorder, but can be played on most DVD players and can be edited on a PC.

The good news is, if you are using a DVD-RW disc you can change the mode by reinitialising it to be in VIDEO mode, but you will lose all the previous content during initialisation. DVD-R discs cannot be initialised.

See this Fixya solution for details on how to initialise a disc.

To Junie1939 - No, it's not possible to change a DVD from 'plus' format to 'minus' format, sorry - you have to go buy 'minus' format DVDs, or change the DVD reader on your PC. Remember the Canon DC210 only takes 'minus' format DVDs.

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.

Unable to record.


Have you initialised the disk? The manual states that for the first use a DVD-RW has to be initialised first.

Initializing disc


Yes - you're trying to initialise a +R DL.

Two problems
1. The DC210 only takes - format DVDs

2. You only need to initialise DVD-RW discs (see page 57 of the manual)

By initialising the DVD+R you have written to it once. having done that, you cannot write anything else to that disc. I find it easier to use DVD-RWs so that I can re-use them.

Good Luck.
