Question about Sony DVDirect VRD-MC3 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Half of my dvd's will only read on the DVDirect and Sony tells me its my problem i am desperate

So i am a freelance photographer and this summer i took about 1,200 images in europe, i used a sony DVDirect VRD-MC3 because it saved space and allowed me to make extra copies of my photos. I ended up burning 4 DVDs with approximatly 400 photos on each, when i put the dvd's in my computer at home, two of the dvd's held the photos in a proper format and i was able to download them. The other two DVDs showed the images as icons (not the images) but when i attempted to download them i got an error. When i put the two (faulty) dvd's back into the DVDirect i was able to view the images that were one them, but no matter what i have tried from calling sony to puutting these dvd's in anything with a port I cant get anything to read them as more than icons. I have gone to harddisk reconstruction people and they say that it will cost at least 300 dollars, and frankly i do not feel liek I should have to pay that because I cant fathom any error that I made. When i hooked the DVDirect up to a computer while the (faulty) dvd was in it same result. Any help would be a huge relief i need these photos for an article I have to have done.

If the icons still show up as files on your computer you might try temporarily changing them to .jpg or .jpeg files just to turn them back into picture files instead of icons. try to open them in paint to save them as jpegs on your hard disk.

I assume that it is Sony DCR-TRV250 camcorder.
Go to camera menu and enable USB stream, like what Sony DV Direct says about change usb settings.

With sony dvdirect vrd-mc5, can I burn pictures from my computer


Yes and no... you can not hook it up directly to your computer and burn copies of pix. You can however transfer your pictures to a memory card (SD, MS or CF) and then put that in the VRD-MC5 and burn your pix.

Hope this helps!
