DCR-DVD92 - Sony disc recommended

The past 2 times I have used my recorder it worked for awhile but then when I try to start recording or to finalize the recording, i get a message in the view finder that says "sony disc recommended". I have used the same brand of disc before and it worked fine.

Any suggestions or help.

Re: DCR-DVD92 - Sony disc recommended

There is a fix for that problem on "BitTorrent", You download the internal micro-program, you change one byte from FF to zero zero (hex), you change the checksum as indicated and you will never see this annoying message again. Then, reload the file as if it is an update from Sony.
I did not keep the instructions as I bought a Canon which is compatible with other editing software while Sony is too much simplistic when capturing the sequences and is not good for my job. If you know their dedicated software, you do not need comments, Am I right? If at least the improvements had improved something...???

Using DVD-RW. How do I delete clips after finalizing, downloading to computer, then re-inserting the disk. I get message saying I cannot delete after finalizing

using this type of disc even in video or vr mode recording, it is not possible to delete the clips after finalization. unfinalizing the disc may not help.the delete option is possible only when you delete the last scene immediately from the camcorder.for reference see p.14 of the clips in between the first and last recording would not be possible to option would be to use your only the movie files that you would like to put on a disc and use your burning application for that least you get to choose the clips you want and would have the capability of compiling it on a regular dvd disc.hope this helps.tnx:)

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data

I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

What are the differences in the record modes? (HQ, SP, & LP)

The amount of recording time on a disc depends on the recording mode selected. The approximate recording time for each of these modes is listed below:

  • HQ (High Quality): Recordable time is up to 20 minutes.
  • SP (Standard Play): Recordable time is up to 30 minutes.
  • LP (Long Play): Recordable time is up to 60 minutes.

  • NOTE: If you record in LP mode, the quality of the scenes may be degraded, or scenes with quick movement may appear with a block noise when you play back the disc.

    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.
