Sony Handycam mini-DVD did not finalize properly - how can I get access to the video for editing?

I have tried the DVD in several computers and the DVD does not initialize - it just spins forever.  It plays fine in the Handycam that recorded the video.  Something must have happened during the finalization process.  I would like to move the video footage onto another DVD and format it to play on a normal DVD player.

SOURCE: Disc Read Error Sony DVD Handycam

Have you tried a program called Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier? It's a free download and fixed my DVD errors (again Sony camcorder recorded). I, too, would get an error, and was unable to copy or transfer files. This program fixes the errors, and I have been able to successfully copy all my DVDs! Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Disc Read Error Sony DVD Handycam

Does your camera have other outputs, i.e., composite-video and L/R audio ?

If the disk "plays" inside your video-camera, then use a "video-capture" USB device, to "play" the movie into the USB device, and "record" from the USB device into your computer.

Filming transfer


Several steps are involved. You will need a firewire or USB cord to connect your camera to your computer. You will need a video capture application on your PC. Macs come with this program, I-Movie. Once captured, the movies can be edited. Your PC will need a combination drive to burn a DVD from the captured material. An easier way: Take your camera output and feed it directly into a DVD recorder. No editing, but it is a one-step process. I use both methods.

Burning video from Sony Handycam DCR-DVD105?


i dont think that you can keep the menus from each mini dvd. but you can create your own dvd video with menu and at the same time you can merge all of your mini dvds. After you upload the mini dvd videos to your computer then use Nero 8 or 9 Software. On Nero look for dvd editable and browse your dvd videos then do as the instructions says to you. you should burn that with one DVD disc with menus of your own choice

Downloading images


Make sure you have a DV cable also know as a firewire cable. You will need some software to capture the video from your camera to your hard drive. Pinnacle Studio is an inexpensive system for capturing, editing, and producting videos to DVD.

Make sure you have a firewire port in the back of your computer.
