Camcorder Will Not Close

My Camcorder wont close. It stays open and will not close by itself, or manually. I don't know what to do. I have a video project to do in less than two weeks and I am stuck with a camera that won't close. Does anybody know how to fix this?

This is due to the improper closing of the cover below the cassette compartment(where the USB, 3894 ports r there)
Pl. close it properly. Then open the cassette door completely, and then close. It works.

How can I edit my video disc

I don't know if your camcorder have features to edit videos in camcorder itself, while some camcorders can. If it dosen't, you need to edit DVD videos on computer with an editor such as ArcSoft ShowBiz. And you need to check your DVD disc style at first. Some discs support rewriting so you can shoot a video, edit it, delete it, shoot a new one all on one disc. Some don't, once you finalize it, nothing can be modifyed. For those rewritable discs, ShowBiz is really a good choice, which enables you to edit disc frames, customize buttons, layers, etc. It even support blu-ray discs editing and burning.

I was given a sega dreamcast everything works but when it says install disc i put the disc on the wheel close the door and the cd wont stay on the wheel

If I recall the Sega Dreamcast wheel is a clasp type wheel. You need to push the disk down onto the wheel and you will hear it secure itself onto the wheel. Then close the wheel and you should be good to go. Don't just place it on the wheel... push it down until you here that little clicking sound and it should stay on the wheel.
