if 600 sgd is labor only - around 400 usd - you might consider cost of trading up to a newer model ( check ebay for second camera , while you wait for . . . warranty repairs ) ;

SOURCE: to view still photos taken from canon dc-210 dvd camcorder

Sounds like you're using the "cine" setting.

Switch the camera on.
Move the "cine / photo" switch (it's just above the joystick) to the "photo" position (i.e. to the right).
Use the joystick to move between images.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Unable to Finalize Disc/Finalize Option Blacked Out

After spending some time with Canon at 1-800-828-4040 I have found out that there is one small but crucial step missing in their instruction manual on Finalizing the disc. Take battery out and power the camera with the cord plugged into wall socket. Turn camera to the on position and let DVD normalize then when it stops move the on switch downward into the play position. With the viewing window upen you will see thumbnails of the pictures that are on the DVD and a small green light will come on opposite play on the camera. Push function and a menu will come on that says disc operations at the top AT THIS POINT PUSH THE JOYSTICK TO THE RIGHT and you will notice the light move from the right side of the viewing window to the center. Now with the joystick scroll downward until FINALIZE is highlighted even though it is in white, push inward on the set button on joystick and you will get a screen giving you information about how long it will take to finalize and it will ask you if you want to finalize yes or no. Choose yes and it will turn yellow or orangish and will start finalizing. You will also get a progress bar at the bottom as it finalizes. When it is finished finalizing you will note that FINALIZE in the menu has turned black. The one step about pushing the joystick to the right just as soon as you get the menu is crucial. Hope this will spare a lot of people a lot of frustration. I was almost ready to send mine back to the company or junk it.

Finalizing disc


In order to finalize the disk you must have it plugged in. So no one does it on accident. After it is finalized you will be able to open it up on the computer or on most DVD players. I had the same problem at first, I have the same camera, I love it now...

I hope this helps you, let me know..

Did not burn dvd


The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."

The DW-100 is really more for archiving your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to your problem:

1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def, you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder to your TV via an HDMI cable.

2. If you want to have standard DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to your computer and convert them to standard-definition using video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good) to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).

I've used the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3 instead of letterboxed.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

I recorded my movies on the dw 100 but now i can't grt them to play on my dvd player


The DW-100 records discs based on the format they were originally recorded.

If your camera is recording HiDef videos than the discs this unit creates will be viewable on a Blu-ray disc player.

If your camera is recording in Standard Definition (ie. NOT HD) then I believe that the discs will work in regular or upconverting DVD players.

My Canon camcorder does not record in Standard Def so can't quite vouch for that last comment though.

Cannot finalize dvd-r


Have solved the finalized problem by simply looking on the Canon website and read that you have to plug the camera into the wall to do it! If only they simply put this in the manual!!! Goodluck!

I don't know if there is any solution. The Canon DC 210 seems to have BIG BIG problems with finalizing, even for those who are plugged in and in Play mode.
