Re: canot watch on dvd or computer

You can view it through the windows media player. Open my computer, find the file in your dvd drive. Right click and select open with windows media player.
To do any editing you will need to convert it from a vro file to mpeg

My computer does not recognise the disc it keeps on saying i must put in a disc

Please check both of your CD type and CD writer. You may have CD rom with DVD disc cause your computer is unable read the this. If everything is OK, you may have optical lens problem on computer. Please clean the lens with lens cleaner. If problem persist, replace your lens with new one.

Either my computer or dvd does not read movies recorded by this camcorder. Why?

hi. in many DVD camcorders. you are suposed to closed o finalize the dvd disk . by doing this it will be playback compatible with your pc or dvd player.

after finalizing a disk you will not able to record any longer on that disk (DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RAM, DVD RW) If you record for 5 minutes and finalized the dvd it will have a 5 min movie !!!

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.

Playing dvd's from camcorder on laptop...

I have this video camera. It seemed like a good deal at $200 at Christmas time. It is suppose to be able to record on DVD-R, +R disks. (re-writable and write disks) I have had issues with not being able to finalize the disk. I found you needed to keep at least 5 minutes on the disk to finalize it. It will not play in any DVD player or a Computer till it is finalized. The info stored on the disk is in RAW form. Finalizing it will create a "lead in" and "lead out" and a menu for your computer and/or DVD player to understand. A large part of whether it will play or not, is what is your DVD Player or DVD Drive on you computer capable of? DVD Players usually will play anything that has been finalized, same with your DVD drive on your computer. BUT! Yep there's a but, sorry. DVD players and DVD Drives sometimes can only read one type of disk. Either a DVD-R or DVD+R, some may not be able to read a re-writable disk too. Look through your manuals on your Laptop and your DVD Player(s) and try to match the correct media (i.e. DVD-R or DVD+R Write or Re-Writable) I found that between my PC and my DVD Player, that DVD+R would work without a hitch for both electonics. Download that software that Samsung gave you in with the video camera. It may end up loading the driver software to help you're computer to recognize the video DVD you are trying to play. Oh, and make sure you really do have a DVD player/burner drive installed. I went to play a movie on my wife's Laptop and found it came with a CD drive and no DVD drive. That's not what I ordered and I was about a year to late to complain to the company. :( Hope that helps.

Cant transfer footage from Canon DC201 onto computer (and eventually internet) Do I need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer?

You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.

One of two things has gone wrong
1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely
2. You have not finalised the disk.

You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.

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

Can't read a DVD-R that was produced by Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder

Canon DC210...To finalize the disk, you first probably want to have the AC adapter plugged in even if your camera does not require it in order to access the finalize menu option, as the process can be quite lengthy and use battery power -wouldn't want to run out in the middle of the operation....THEN....Make sure you are in VIEW mode -not record mode...THEN...Press the FUNC button on the side of the camera -you should then notice the FINALIZE option -among others -navigate to the actual finalize command using the joystick, then press it down and let it work its magic - try not to move it until it is finished. After it is finished -it can be removed and will be recognized by a dvd player, recorder or drive that is compatible with this type of disk in the first place, Apparently, this camcorder records video to the .VRO file type -so be sure any video editor/converter/player software on your computer recognizes this file type.

DVD Camcorder appears to have erased disc mid record!

I know it won't play in a dvd player till it is finalized. Leave it in camera mode, hit menu, and scroll down till you see the option to finalize. If you finalize it, it should play in a dvd player. I am having a problem with my camera(same model) where it won't finalize the disc. Any help out there?

Finalizing vs. not finalizing a DVD-R. DVD-R vs. DVD-RAM?

on standard players. The write all the information that a standard player looks for to read the disk. Nothing is lost if you take the DVD out of the recorder without finalizing it. On a PC, you would tell the software to eject the disk. Later model hardware can usually reopen a disk after it has been finalized. Is this a typo? 'I know that the disc cannot be seen in a DVD player after being finalized'. It should read; I know that the disc can be seen in a DVD player after being finalized
