Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder
I have recorded something on a DVD-R using the Canon DC210 DVD, then I take the DVD-R disk and try to read from a computer DVD ROM that reads DVD-R and the disk comes up empty I don't know what to do to read the disk from a computer any help is very welcome
Canon DC210...To finalize the disk, you first probably want to have the AC adapter plugged in even if your camera does not require it in order to access the finalize menu option, as the process can be quite lengthy and use battery power -wouldn't want to run out in the middle of the operation....THEN....Make sure you are in VIEW mode -not record mode...THEN...Press the FUNC button on the side of the camera -you should then notice the FINALIZE option -among others -navigate to the actual finalize command using the joystick, then press it down and let it work its magic - try not to move it until it is finished. After it is finished -it can be removed and will be recognized by a dvd player, recorder or drive that is compatible with this type of disk in the first place, Apparently, this camcorder records video to the .VRO file type -so be sure any video editor/converter/player software on your computer recognizes this file type.

Have you finalized your disk? It does need to be finalized first. If you have, you can use Windows Media and you should be able to view it and even burn it, but am trying to solve the problem of burning it so that it can be played on a DVD/VCR player.

Premiere Elements will import your video ok and let you edit from the Canon format

The Canon DC 210 cannot read any disks (even those already recorded). The camera is plugged in to the outlet. Tried new and previously used disks to no avail.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I found this link, should help if you have Toast.
Last night I was presented with a DVD-RW that had a recording (of a portion of a local television news broadcast) created with a DVD video recorder. I've heard people talk about not being able to play these disks in other devices (such as computers or regular DVD players). I slapped it into my MacBook Pro and, when it mounted almost immediately on my Desktop, I thought I was home free. Not so much.
The mounted volume contained one folder that appeared to be locked (it had the "locked" badge on it). I could open it in the Finder, but it appeared to contain no files. I launched Terminal and cd'ed into the folder. When I tried to ls, I was told I had insuffiecient privileges. A quick sudo (via !!) later I was greeted with two files: VR_MOVIE.INF and VR_MOVIE.VRO. The first of these was something like 16KB, while the other was just over 1GB. Bingo. But no. All attempts to copy the .VRO file were in vain.
I tried VLC, Handbrake, Mac the Ripper, DVD Player, Disk Utility, iSquint, and maybe a couple other things ... all to no avail.
I finally decided to try Toast and just burn a copy of the thing for later. Toast recognized the DVD, but informed me that I was not allowed to copy it. Toast also displayed a hint that I could add the titles via the Video -> Media tab. Sure enough, there is a pop-up menu in the media drawer that allows you to specify DVD. When I switched to that, I was presented with a list of chapters. I was able to grab the chapter I wanted and rip it directly to a Toast DVD image. Once the resulting image was mounted, it contained the standard VIDEO_TS folder and played normally in QuickTime Player. I was then able to transcode the chapter with HandBrake.
So there you have it. If you want to get video data off a DVD recorded in a DVD video recorder, Toast is the way to go.

Plug in the power cord then press the function key and finalize the disc and then you computer will be able to read the disc. I was making the same mistake and plug it in and the Finalize step will be allowed.
