Re: Disc Read error

I do have the same problem. It all started when I started using Sony discs that has a label to write on one surface. Don't know how to fix it. It is now almost useless!

Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc

We recorded on a DVD-R disc (SONY DCR-108 brand new) and replayed what we recorded a few times and removed the disc without finalizing it. Now when we put it back into the camcorder it will not play or...

I would suggest you try cleaning the disc with a soft cloth, wipe from center outwards. Check for scratches, dust, dirt, use small amount of water if required. Also try cleaning the lens pickup in the camera. The disc should read without finalize process in the same camcorder it was recorded in. If you still cannot get it to read, I would suggest a video transfer service may be able to recover the data. Call
888.451.2220 would be just one example of these services. Look locally first, they may be able to read the disc for you.

Sony Handycam says movie recording disabled. How did this happen and how do I undo it?

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.

Power disconnected during finalization

There's no way you can continue the finalization of the disc, the disc has been marked as finalized already, even a single power fluctuation when you are using ac power adaptor can affect the disc finalizing process, so it is better to use battery when disc finalizing
