I want to transfer my DVD's taken with a DC100 Canon video camera to computer files to share on Facebook & other social networking sites. But I have no idea how to get them from DVD to computer file...

please make sure to finalize the disc before inserting it to the computer.


1.go to media browser(its the mode where you playback recorded videos) menu button
3.pres right directional button down directional button and look for the "finalize" option and press ok

note: plug the camcorder to walloutlet during the process and avoid vibrations and movements with the camcorder. it would be better if you place the camcorder on a stable surface during the process.

-wait until finalization finishes and then insert the disc to computer and then copy the videos to a folder in your computer and so that you can upload them to facebook.

I just bought new discs for my Canon DC100. The

It's possible that, for some reason, the disks aren't compatible. It can almost drive you crazy trying to figure out why. To find out for sure if this is the case, try some new Panasonic discs, with the same specifications as the old ones that worked, and see if they work. If they don't work, you're probably having a dvr issue with the laser lens or related parts within the camera. There are many issues with dvrs that develop over time, requiring replacement parts and service. In those cases, it's usually better to get a replacement camcorder. The new HDD camcorders are immune from a lot of problems inherent with dvr and tape recorders.

Canon dc100 will not finalize memorex disc, which says it can be used in canon

make sure the power adapter is connected, you can not finalize on battery power alone. also make sure you are in playback will say original in the top left corner..then you should be able to finalize when you go into the menu

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder

I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Finalize the disc

depends what type of disc-rw's won't highlight sometimes because they don't always need to be finalized to play-insert the disc if r in another brand and see if you can finalize-go to bb or circuit and ask them if you can stick it in display and see if it comes up-if never proably was done already-also try different dvd players

Initializing DVD-RW Discs

This camcorder only takes DVD-R and DVD-RW, it will not work with the +R discs. I've used Maxell and Fujifilm discs and they both worked fine. You have to make sure the camcorder is plugged in the wall when initializing or else it won't initialize.
