Trying to get timestamp to burn to DVD from flash camcorder

Recently found that Sony is phasing out their DVD camcorders and we have to make the switch to flash memory or hard drives. Problem is we usually enjoy a embedded timestamp that is recorded when finalizing a miniDVD. Although the timestamp is stored in raw footage of flash memory or hard drive camcorder, when you burn the recordings to a DVD they do not show up. The only way we have found to get the timestamp is to plug the camera into a recorder and record at one time speed as the camcorder plays showing the timestamp. Is there a faster way??? In some cases we have 2 or more hours of video so doing this recording is time prohibative. Unfortunately, the timestamp is critical since it documenting activities for a report.

Trying to use a consumer camcorder for this kind of purpose is not likely to be the best option.

SOURCE: sony dvd handycam finalize problem

If your discs are rewritable, you could try putting your discs in your computer. Try opening the folders and try to open all the files. Some of the files may be your videos. If it opens your video player and plays your videos, wait until it plays everything to make sure that all your data were recorded in the disc. Copy everything in your computer and remove your disc. Try playing it again and if it works, then it's already ok. When you are planning to use it again, make sure that you format everything in the disc.

SOURCE: movie recording disabled

I have the same problem.  If you have taken the disk out of the re-corder, then you can no longer finalize the disk...and you will potentially lose the data on the disk.  Their only solution was to take it to a professional media service and see if they could recover it...what a joke...at no point in the manual does it indicate that you cannot remove your disk or face the potential of losing your recording...I lost the recordings of the birth of my son...I will never forgive that...

I have filmed with my sony camcorder on dvd-rw 1.4 gb mini discs and it will not read on any of my computers. How do I copy these discs to my computer so I can burn them on to another disc.


Well..., First make sure that your computer has a DVD drive (I'm sure you already know)

When you take the disk out of your camcorder, do you finalize the disk?? If I don't finalize it on my camcorder then I cannot replay it on a computer or a DVD player.

Just my 2 cents!!

Unable to read dvd-rw from sony camcorder - wants to format


I had a similar issue. I could not read the camcorder dvd drive (sony hdr ux5) from my computer. I even tried several different computers, it reads the drive but cannot recognize the format. I made sure the disk was finalized, but did not help. Then I found the this article http://forum.videohelp.com/topic351360.html which suggested I down load CDRoller which I did (14 day trial version), finally I could read the drive on the camcorder dvd drive. Hope this helps you, if you have not fixed it already.

The problem with Sony is that they're always trying to push something proprietary and lock in their own equipment as a standard. It is not likely that you are limited to a Sony computer. It looks like it has both firewire and usb 2.0 outputs. Provided you have one, or both, of these on your computer, there are many choices for software which will do the capture and subsequent processing. A lot depends on how much subsequent processing you want to do.

Sony DCR-TRV38 - cannot burn movie to DVD


I found the best way of editing the footage from these cameras is to put the DVD disc into your computer and copy the contents of the VIDEO_TS folder onto another folder on your hard drive. The uses a video editing application which is specifically designed for the MPEG format. I would highly recommend the low cost "Womble MPEG Video Wizard" which is available for a 30 day trial at www.womble.com.
