Sony Handycam DVD 650 - After recording on a disk and the disk is full, it went to a screen that is locked. It says "Formatting Start" and only offers formatting issues. I do not want to format as it...

Dear Sir,
Yes you are right, lots and lots have lost very nice recordings on these silly CD and Hard-Drive cameras, and with so many people having problems I hope Sony go back to the 8mm takes because some recordings we all like to make mean too much for us to just re-format over them.
While your CD is in your camera press the reset button, that puts menu back and camera like new, your disk will pop out okay that way.
I do think though that you should try to pick up a good Sony 8mm camera for those important movies, that way you know you always will have them.

I don't know how to rewrite the dvd in a dvd camcorder so i can record on it again

On the menu on screen in your camera you will see option (Format) if you are putting a DVD RW in camera it will format, if the disk you use is R then no you cannot format to use again.

It does not sea the dvd after accidental ejecting disk during recording.

Hi Roman.

If you ejected the DVD disc while recording, it'll be unreadable! Use a new disc and record again. If it's the drive itself that it's not "seeing", completely shutdown the computer, then power it up again. If that doesn't work, download and run this file.

Good luck,

Format error when i finalise the disk

If a FORMAT ERROR message is displayed, then the inserted disc is not formatted or it is recorded in a different format not useable by the camcorder. If using a DVD-RW or DVD+RW, format the disc prior to use. Otherwise, use a different disc.

I need to take what i recorded and put on my computer to burn on a

Since the camcorder records on Mini DVD+/-R and RW, and SD/MMC cards, just eject the media from the camcorder and insert it into the appropriate drive on your computer. Open the burning software of your choice (which you may or may not already own) and follow the directions for burning the files with that software. If the disks are DVD RW or SD/MMC delete the files after burning is complete. Even though the manual states that it will work with DVD-R, the camcorder seems to have issues finalizing these particular formats, so I recommend using DVD+R and DVD+RW. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote appropriately and leave a comment.

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.

Cannot Eject DVD

There will be a manual eject but its slightly tricky. There will be a small hole(about 1mm diameter) near the tray where you insert the DVD. Just insert a samll pin or something into it and keep shoving it in and out by repeatedly pressing the eject button. If its just a stuck DVD then it will come out in a JIFFy. Otherwise send it for repairs as taking the unit apart might void your warranty! Good luck!

Error code 2881

I found this problem only when I tried to use a RW disk. The camera will not use a rewritable disk. I reformated the disk in my computer but it still would not work in the camera.
