Question about Sony Televison & Video

Open Question

When using the above DVD Disk in my Digital Video Camera Recorder Handycam, I can not record to another blank DVD thru my Sony Recording system from the finalized disk made from the Handycam. Older Sony DVD-RW 1.4 GB Finalized Disks have always and continue to copy fine. How can I use the newer DVD + RW 2.8 4X disks to achieve the ability to finalize them and then attempt to copy their contents onto a blank DVD. The copying process stops after less than a minute with a window that says you can not copy a write protected movie. I did not activate any write protection application but the disk in question appears to write protect automatically in my Handycam.

SOURCE: Copy Protection Signal

"Copy Protected Signal." Means that the data you are trying to Ahem... "Copy" probably has copy protection inbuilt into the disk & data. This is done to stop copying of pirate DVD's etc. Part of the DRM put out by the TV/Music/Film industry. There are programs that can strip protection and enable one to copy said DVD's.. AnyDVD is one that springs to mind, as does Dameon Tools, and many others simply Google for them.

SOURCE: Recording from DVR.

There is a firmware update posted on the Sony support web site. It takes care of the copy protect error. However, i have encountered an error where the recorder doesn't identify the input signal. It posts the message "waiting for input signal." I have no solution for this one yet.

The disc drive motor is burned out, its junk...if you didn't finalize the discs, they're junk too unless you buy another Panasonic DMR.

Can not finalize disk

I have had loads of people ask me this question in just 2 weeks, so it often does happen okay?
Anyway you should not have to do a finalize on the disk, because when you stop filming, the camera reads it's end bit to the DVD auto, then after a few seconds you should be able to open the camera door.

Movie recording disabled

for disc (DVD) camcorder: this problem is due to high shock to camcorder. the recorder lens is moved from it's original place and can't record or access thereafter. you also can not finalize the disc (DVD). you have to replace the disc with new one.

you also lost your recording till the problem happened.

I hooked up my sony handycam to my dvd recorder & recorded it on a dvd. While it was recording it had sound (hooked up to the tv) but the recorded dvd does not have any sound.

your dvd recorder should be compatible with dolby digital 5.1 surround sound because that what camcorder uses. you can try to switch audio recording on camcorder to stereo.

"Invalid Video Found" HDR-CX7 and VRD-MC5 DVD Recorder

The same happend to me. The camera contains informations of videofiles, which are no more present on the camera (were deleted from a computer). You are not able to record in full disk mode, or any other mode, which includes these videos. These missing files can be easily recognised, as the camcorder is not able to play them. Try to get rid of these "files", or ommit them from the recording list.
