    Many Thanks for your help Miteshanhand but my original question was poorly written. The Handycam itself will not recognise any recordings that I have made. I cannot retrieve any recordings and the Handycam is showing the disc as empty.....oh dear

It is required to finalize the recording in the Camcorder in order to play the recording in any device like DVD player or in Computer.

First finalize the recording in the Camcorder and then try playing the DVD in any DVD player.

After finalizing the DVD, a DVD player will be able to play the disk.

Refer the User Guide page # 44 of 139 for the instruction to finalize the recording in the Camcorder.

I purchased a second Sony RDR-VX525 Video Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder for our bedroom to replace a failing Zenith VCR recorder/player. I began using the Sony VHS/DVD recorder to transfer our movies...


This is a known issue that happens with these players

To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue, take the remote for that recorder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment. Then hold down the enter key and the number of the mode its stuck in ie if its stuck in dvd-1 mode hold down the enter key and then the 1 key. hold both buttons together for 3 seconds. After this go back into the room and try it or if you unplugged the player, then replug it back in. The remote has to be away from the player to work. again

here is an example

<stuck in dvd-1mode> get away from player different room so it can not sence remote. Hold down enter and 1 button for 3 seconds and then try it
if its stuck in dvd-2 mode dold down enter and the number 2 button together for 3 secondsd and try it. The idea is you have to be far away from the recorder so it dosent recieve any inputs from the remote while doing this.

Let me know if you are still having problems with this and I would be glad to help you.

thanks

Check video input setting to DVD recorder...should be set to "External" or "Line". This should activate the video input jacks on the rear of the RDR-VX530 and allow it to "see" your Sony handycam.

How can I transfer the video from a Sony Handycam CCD-TR416 to CD or DVD


How to Transfer video from Sony Handycam CCD-TR416 to DVD - You need a DVD Recorder / Player, connected to your TV. Then using the audio / video cables from your camcorder, connect them to the TV as well. Turn your TV on so that you can watch the video out from your camcorder and then select the record button on your DVD Recorder / Player. Then you have a DVD that can be watched in any DVD Player or Computer with out any compression. This is how I transfer my camcorder tapes to DVD.

I am so lost when it come to this thing


You have to convert the movie files from the camera to a format the PC understands. Search Sony's help section for this issue or get a program and adapter to record the video from the camcorder to a DVD on the PC.

Recorder fails during 92% finalizing.


The free CDBurnerXP Pro is supposedly able to close unclosed disks, but I have never figured out how to do it. Maybe you'll be luckier than me or the newer version is more user friendly.

Sony Handycam says movie recording disabled. How did this happen and how do I undo it?


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.
