Transferring data from disc after finalization was interrupted

Thank you, phillip, for your very helpful advice. is there a way to plug the camera into another source, play the disc, and then transfer to a new tape or disc? or is norton's much easier? thanks very much...

    thanks, again. you've been great. my only suggestion to you is that you should have offered this as a solution when i wrote and said the power was disconnected during finalization, the material was still on there, and i needed it to play on a dvd player. you mentioned norton's as the only solution, but not tranferring the data while it played on the camera. also, as you'll see if you look at the original question i posted, there is another, much easier possible solution if you accidentally interrupt the finalization process.

Yapp!! Playing the disc using your camera and records the output into another media is the best way to transfer your disc data. Computer nowaday has built in digital capture card, you can record your movie through firewire or IEEE1394 connection(unit always comes with these cables). You can even edit youyr movie, I suggest you learn adobe premiere softwares. Norton is only better when your disc is unreadable or corrupted( thats why he called it data recovery) [:0)

I interrupted my finalization of the disc on my handycam and now can not continue


You can try data recovery software such as CDroller or "Bad CD DVD repair"
Or send it off to a mini dvd recovery company such as www.minidvdrepair.com
I used them in the past with great results. I believe I paid around $100

Hello,

Have you tried inserting the mini dvd discs into your computer's dvd drive? Some dvd drives (especially DVD writers) can read unfinalised discs. And then using a DVD writer and a DVD burning software (like Nero) you can then try to finalize the discs.

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.

oops....something happened during the finalizing process and it failed. Hope you had a back-up in your computer of the disk. It doesn't need to be finalized to have it in the computer, just in case this happens. Looks like your disc got erased.

EX-S1: fault in function and data transfer


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
