    No. The camera seems to have gone dead. I'll buy another one.

My camcorder will not give me an option in disc operations to finalise a disc which I recorded on (which I did initialise before starting- I have also tried it on another disc, initialise, record etc) I...


Hi,

Are you using the AC adapter when trying to finalize? You cannot finalize using battery power only.

Link to your manual:

Canon DC210 Manual

(What format discs are you using?)

Instructions for finalizing begin on page 61.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Finalising discs with canon camcorder


I do know that to finalize discs, you need to have your camera plugged in to a wall outlet, according to the owner's manual.

Format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

MiniDVD+RW can not be recognized


The Canon DC210 will only work with 'minus' format DVDs. It will not work with 'plus' format DVDs.

When you use DVD-RW discs you will be able to initialise the discs.

Not recognizing mini dvdrw


DVD-R discs can be used with no preparation, but a DVD-RW must be initialised before it can be used for the first time.

You may also have to initialise a DVD-RW if you get the message "UNABLE TO RECOGNIZE THE RECORDING MODE OF THE DISC" .

Also, make sure you always use DVD "minus" format discs - the DC210 will not work with any DVD "plus" format discs.

When you initialise the disc you will be asked to chose between Video mode and VR mode. Most DVD players will play a Video mode disc, but a VR mode disc can be edited with the camcorder. My preference is Video mode - I can then play on a DVD player and edit on a PC.

How to copy from CANON DC210 DVD Camcorder to PC


Before you can transfer pictures or video from your Canon DC210 to your PC you need to finalise the disc in the camcorder.

You also need to make sure that the DVD drive on your PC is capable of reading a DVD-R, DVD-R DL or DVD-RW format as these are the only disk formats that the DC210 will handle. Not all PC DVD drives can read these formats.

To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then, switch on the camera, put it into playback mode, Press 'Func.', select main menu, select 'disk operations', select 'finalise'. Don't move or shake the camera or switch it off whilst the finalising step is underway - this could cause problems.

Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.

Good Luck.

Canon DC210 Camera


The error message is because, either
1. the disc was initialised on another camcorder, or maybe a PC, or
2. The disc has a recording on it in a different TV system (PAL v SECAM).

From the above, it may be you're using the same disc in two camcorders. To be sure of seeing what's on your disc you need to keep it with the same camcorder from 'initialise' to 'finalise' .

To be able to see the disc on a PC you need to finalise it on the camcorder. There's no other way to get to see your work on a PC.

Unfortunately I think you've lost your recordings this time.
