I can see the movies fine on the camcorder, but when I put the disk in the PC, or attach the camcorder to the PC, The PC sees no disk... rather it will ask me to format it, or it will see it with properties of 0 of 0 mb available.

Re: Can not see canon dc220 recordings from PC
Until you Finalize the disk it will be unreadable on the other devices. In order to finalize the disk you must have the power cord plugged in to the Camera. Then finalize will be an option on the menue. So no one does it on accident. After it is finalized you will be able to open it up on the computer or on most DVD players.I have the dame camera, I love it

if you are trying to play the dvd in the computer you have to finalize it first. The Camcorder has to be plugged in for this to work. if you want to see the Pictures make sure that you have it in the view mode. Where you would see ll the pictures on the camera, then it should show up on you "My Computer". It took me a while too. Good luck
You have to plug the camera into the wall charger in order to finalize. I was having the same problem. Once finalized, I transferred the disk to the PC. You need DVD decrypter software in order to view the videos on the disk. Canon does not supply this. Canon recommended that I use one of several free downloads. They said download "DVD Decrypter" which I downloaded. Type DVD Decrypter into Google search and you will find it. It will rip it and download it to your computer. I then viewed the video with Windows Media. It works fine.
DV-PC Recorder is a Windows XP only application that enables you to record images and sound on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by connecting a camcorder equipped with the DV CONTROL function to a computer using an IEEE1394 (DV) cable.
DV-PC Recorder has the following features.
1. You can record movies simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape by pressing the start/stop button on the camcorder.
2. It enables long, continuous recordings, which you cannot achieve with the tape alone.
(Approximately four and a half hour's worth of recording will fit on a 60GB hard disk.)
3. You can start editing the movies on the computer right after recording, as the images and sound are saved on the computer's hard disk.
(Optional editing software is required to edit movies)
4. You can record movies on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by controlling the DV-PC Recorder from your computer.
