Used memorex dvd in sony cam and wont read in computer or camcorder

I bought memorex dvd for my sony camera because the store was out of the sony dvd's. I recorded my daughters school play on the memorex and i went to put it on my computer and it appears as though the disc is blank and nothing had been recorded. I had gone to the properties menu and says the disc is full. I have finalized the disc to read in my computer but nothing appears to be there. Anyone else with this problem?

    I cannot play this through my camcorder at all. I can't play it on anything. Is there a program out there to extract the data and recover the footage?

I fu are able to play this dvd on camera then just take output to some recorder vcr or dvd recorder and rescue ur video , these dvd cams are giving much problem these days , u will see thousands of Queries like ur problem this Sony brand uses Monopolistic tactics to increase sales and they dont provide compatibiity with other brand of dvd discs and it also does the same with theier own DVd media as well so i would suggest next time u but a camera buy HDD not DVDRW , for now u can try using the proprietory owned Sony media for the reiable operation and pls also try DVD lens cleaner to clean th lens may be dust and dirt is there which affects the writing operation of ur camera

i hope it helps pls rate me WELL !

I am using memorex dvd. I am getting error C:13:02


Sony like other makers have long discontinued making cameras that use DVD, main reason was a 7 in 10 failure rate, DVD simply never did work, now we are finding Hard-Drive cameras are not any better, so most film makes buy digital 8 again, it is best picture anyway, plus we like reliable cameras.

The DC210 will only work with with Mini DVD -R or -RW. I had the same problem when the BestBuy salesman sold me +RW Mini DVD with the DC210. I went back to the store and got them changed for +RW and I was then able to use the DC210.

Dvdrw will not format in camera


I use Memorex and Sony Mini DVD-RW in my DC210 and both work fine.

To BUGFUZZ - the DC210 does not support DVD+RW - you must use either DVD-RW or DVD-R.

Mini DVD Camcorder Problem


You will never be able to recover the information. Sony's system really will have problems with third party brands; there is particular engineering that makes this so. In my shop (Sony authorized), I have seen this problem many times. If you insist on using other brands, get used to problems. As your laser assembly wears it will become more problematic. Good luck, magic seadog
