Question about Sony DCR-DVD608E DVD Camcorder

Unable to recover recorded DVD/Video data

I am desperate to solve a problem that occurred on my SONY DCR-DVD608E DVD Comcorder. Upon trying to eject the disc from the camera, the camera refused, but after a while did eject the disc. Trying to re-load a disc was then met with the message "choose/select(?) aspect ratio ..." (can unfortunately not remember the exact error message).
The camera was taken to the local SONY headquarters, who are of the opinion that the camera is OK; however, they could not recover the video data recorded on three dics, even though the used software originating from SONY Technical Headquarters.
I subsequently approached a number of companies that do data recovery, without success. The last company (the end of the line) said that they used DOS-based inhouse software, and were able to download files that do contain data, but they were unable to recover the video images from it.

I am desperate to recover the video recordings as they are of immense sentimetnal value.

E McCreath, Pretoria, South Africa. I am also unable to recover video files that were accidently deleted. We used different recovery software. The recovery software would come up with the files that were lost but we were never able to open the files. We tried using many different programs to open without success. This is a sad way to think of your vacation in video. The jpg. files were easy to recover but not the mp4 files

Movie recording disabled keeps appearing on the screen when i try to record

this would be the type of discs you are using thats causing this error......... make sure you change the type of Disc or this problem would occur if the disc is not finalized...

There are two ways of recovering video from an unfinalised -R/RW. that I know of.
The first is to download IsoBuster. You will have to pay for it to use the save feature.
The second using Nero Recode. This comes as part of the full version of Nero 6 or 7. This will copy the VIDEO_TS folder off the unfialised DVD to your hard drive.
