You should absolutely be able to play the recorded DVDs from your camcorder in your DVD player, as long as you remember to finalize the disc and the disc is compatible with the player. If your DVD player is less than five years old or so, you should be fine, provided you're not using dual-layer discs.

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...


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.

Mini-DVD playback here is the manual look on page 62 for playback on a pc. you need a dvdrom drive. if you have one make sure you have software like windows media player 10 or 11, or powerdvd to play the movie. as for editing the video is a little bit more tricky. you are going to have to "rip" the video and then combine it in a program like windows movie maker with the other dvd that has been ripped too. when you are done editing in windows movie maker just choose avi or dvd type.

Initialize the discs then record...but then it still wont play on the computer/dvd player Canon camcorder dc210

I have a Samsung recorder, and it requires you to "finalize" the disc before it will play on another unit. Check your manual for specifics, or look in your menu for the "finalize disk" option. Hope this helps...

I have got the disk to unfinalize but I can't delete anything. I want to start over with DVD-RW but I can't.

Unless you recorded in VR mode, then you will not be able to delete single video clips. The only option left for you is to "initialize" NOT "unfinalize" the disk, (warning: this will erase your ENTIRE disk). Once you initialize, you will have an empty disk to re-record on. VR mode allows more editing and delete options but DVDs recorded in this mode are not compatible on all dvd players.

Usually it asks you which mode u perfer to format in but possibly you might have bought the wrong kind of dvd's.This particular model only recognizes "minus" and not "plus" dvd's.

Two problems here.

To JOA629 - You may possibly have initialised the disc in VR mode by mistake. VR mode discs will not play on a PC. Are you re-initialising the disc between when it works and when it doesn't ? If you're using VIDEO mode, are you finalising the disc on the camcorder before using it on the PC ?

To dewynn729 - you have intialised the disc in VR mode, which is a newer format than VIDEO mode. VR mode discs will produce .VRO file extension. Record your video on a disc initialised in VIDEO mode, finalise the disc on the camcorder (don't forget to plug the camcorder into the power adapter, and switch both on), then read the disc on a PC.

Can the dc210 finalize dvd-R

Thanks making sure I was in play mode with the adapter plugged in worked. The trick was remembering what play mode was--that's where you can see the scenes on the playback screen, not the screen you see when you are looking to record something.
