Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder

5 Answers

Mini-DVD playback My computer doesn't read my mini-discs. I've finalized and I can play them in my regular dvd player, but not my computer. I've tried in both the D and E drives, and the little grooves are there to hold the mini-dvd. What software can I download on the internet to enable my computer to read my mini-discs? (I am using the Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder.)

Sonic seems to have the DLA version that will read it. Both my machines with Roxio don't recognize teh disc at all. The 2 with Sonic see it fine. You can change the .VRO file extension to .MPG and it works fine to play on anything.

The problem MAY be that your computer cannot read -R, -RW and heir Double Layer (DL) versions. Older computer DVD drives could only read either + or - DVD versions. Modern DVD drives can read both, plus DLs.

...and, no, the DC210 cannot handle + format DVDs.

Solution is to find someone who has a PC with DVD reader that can read - format DVDs.

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900000562/DC210NIM-EN.pdf here is the manual look on page 62 for playback on a pc. you need a dvdrom drive. if you have one make sure you have software like windows media player 10 or 11, or powerdvd to play the movie. as for editing the video is a little bit more tricky. you are going to have to "rip" the video and then combine it in a program like windows movie maker with the other dvd that has been ripped too. when you are done editing in windows movie maker just choose avi or dvd type.

two things:

1) connect the camcorder to your computer using a USB cable and play it through that, by the way, what computer is it?

2) you can finalize without the ac adapter - its a built in safeguard to ensure that there is enough power to allow finalization to complete

How can i get mini dvd to play on dvd player


Hi,
Make sure that MiniDVD has been finalized in camcorder then it can be playback in any other DVD Player.
Finalize option would be available in camcorder dvd setup menu, select it to finalize recorded mini dvd disc, please note UnFinalized mini dvd disc will only playback in camcorder because of its raw data and Finalization will validate this raw data so other dvd players will recognize this mini dvd disc for playback.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.
