Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder

Dropped camera - RW Disk thrown out - Some recordings are "gone"

I dropped my camera (power off) and somehow the RW dvd disk was thrown out, obviously without the proper eject procedure.
The drop was not hard and the camcorder is OK, but:
When I put the RW dvd disk back in, the camcorder could only see the first 4 recordings.
My guess is that I had taken out the disk sometime after these first recordings and before the "lost" ones.
In order to avoid any more damage I did not try to finalize the disk, but without finalizing I can not get to read it on a PC, where I could probably use some data retrieval software.

Is there a way to make the camcorder see the "lost" recordings or retrieve them on a PC?

Thanks a lot

    I have the same problem with a DVD-R and now can't see any of the recordings. Given that the DVD is a write once, I assume whatever I had recorded is still in there. How do I get it out though? Any repair SW out there? Thx.

A substantial percentage of my Memorex 3.5 "CDs won't finalize, and when I subsequently try to review the photos on the camera, it tells me there are no files on it. Nothing will download to the computer via the USB either.
There is a software program that always saves me when I get careless and fill the disk to full. It''s called CD Roller. It''s called CD Roller. good luck please mark the post with a fixya

What is the difference between a DVD+RW and a DVD-RW.

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.


It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.

There you are.

Can't record DVD+RW and DVD+ Disks...PLUS

Firstly, you need to finalize the -R disk recorded by and in your unit before it will play back anywhere else.

Secondly, the DMR-ES10 does not support +RW, only -RW.

Finally, I have never heard of a +D. Do you mean +R? It is likely that you have a corrupt disk; change it.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks

First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.

Wont record only on dvd+rw

Sorry but your laser is going! +R disks need a slightly higher burn power. Eventually you will have the same fault for RW disks.

Cannot play this disc

The DVD-R130 can only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW disks - it cannot identify blank DVD+R and DVD+RW disks. For recorded DVD disks, the player will play finalised DVD+R/+RW disks without any problem.
