    I want to make sure you know my camera is a Sony MVC-CD300 with a disk. The disk would not complete it's finialization.

    What software on the camera would need to be update?

  • ldburg Oct 07, 2009

    The disc I was trying to finialize was a disk I had just finised taking photos with. It would not finish the finialization process or intialize a new disk. I tried to intialize two new disks.

    On the last comment it was suggested that the new disk could be the problem. But when I was trying to finalize the disk already in the camra it would not finish the finalization.

Hi,

This seems to be a common issue in these models.It's an error that appear telling something is wrong with the card. It can be the way the card is formatted, or it can be a problem with the contact. I guess using a too big capacity card could also produce that problem. If you use an adapter, this include even more contacts in the equation that could be problematic.

If you have another card that work well, then the inner contact of the camera are OK. To make sure a card have clean contact, you need to use a pen eraser and rub them a bit (be sure no residue are left on them after that operation).

It might also come from the adapter itself not being tight enough.

But the first thing to try is to format the card. Try to backup stuff on it before doing so. The best is always to format it in the camera itself, but when that fail you can also try to format it as FAT32 in a computer.

If nothing do, even a single (no adapter) card, the problem might be inside. Then the unit will need servicing as it's not easy to open/fix and a connector spring might need replacement.

There is one more way, if that would work :-

Recommended Steps to repeat my repair:
(WARNING this is involved, it took me 2.5 hours and there were lots of screws and connectors)
1) get a piece of paper and draw a simple view of your camera, then note all the places where the screws exist.
(draw a line out from your picture and then a circle or something)
2) now remove all the screws you can find on the outer housing minus the ones on the front of the lens and the eyepiece (There should be 13), and carefully lay them on the little circles you drew on the paper, so you'll know where they go later.
3) Gently pull the viewfinder module straight up, and detach the 2 ribbon connectors and molex from the main camera body. (I'd recommend making another drawing where each ribbon goes
in relation to the body of the camera because there are lots of them you'll eventually have to remove.) Place the viewfinder module aside.
4) Gently remove the ribbon cables and molex that are connecting the lens assembly to the main body (One of them will be attached with a little foam pad with adhesive, it's ok to pull this off for now)
5) Pull the main body backward and set the lens assembly aside.
6) Now, looking at the inside of hte main body, remove the two brass screws holding the top two circuit boards to the bottom one, as well as any ribbon cables and connectors that attach the top boards to anything below (I think there's 4 ribbon cables and one molex), and slide the top two circuit boards down away fro the notch/tongue at the top. Set the top two circuitboards aside.
7) Remove the 3 black screws on the top (two are for the hinge in the door), one black screw on the top left of the metal bracket (kind of recessed), and one black screw near the bottom right. If you did everything correctly, the whole metal bracket with attached CDR should come away from the back door assembly. Set the back door assembly aside.
8) now flip the bracket over and you'll see the CDR and laser assembly (a black plastic thing) which is attached by 3 plastic connectors and rubber grommets)
Before continuing, flip it back over and remove the largest ribbon cable located under the sticker about replacing the fuse. (I didn't detach the smaller one)
9) on the CDR side, Gently pull the tabs on each plastic foot away from the center and it should lift off the metal bracket. (I left the 3rd one with the ground tab on it, but I did remove the screw that secured the ground tab.) Then flip the CDR over.
10) Near the bottom you should see an area where a small white gear is exposed, this is attached by 3 screws, remove them and the gear housing lid.
11) Once the gear train is exposed it should be a simple matter to see the worm gear (metal and long) and the little spur gear on the metal tab.
12) Gently bend the metal arm a little so the spur gear makes better contact with the worm gear.
13) Carefully reassemble everything.
14) You're Done! I hope that fixed your problem!

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The software will most likely need to be updated. The manufacture will do this for $50 or you may be able to get lucky enough to find a donwload on the web.

    Do make sure disk is formated either by camera or pc, Make sure it is NOT set to read or write only. Make sure it is not encryped.

I have tried to reset the system from scratch with a best buy geek squad recovery disk series and I get error: 403 with no other info when I try to restore the C drive to preinstalled factory settings


For a New Hard Disk Recovery with the Sony Recovery DVD's, do a complete restore, and leave the SKIP button selected on the last screen when asked if you want to recover the C: Drive.

Sony are a bit wierd the way they work this step.

Try that anyway and failing this try entering the bios at boot up and making sure your time and date are right and try again.

Can not get the camera to intialize, it say initialzation error


Try uninstalling the USB devices in the Device Manager. Removing all of them will not hurt your computer. Unplug all of your USB devices and restart. The computer will load fresh drivers for usb. It would be a good idea to uninstall the camera software as well before doing this, and re-installing it after your computer has fresh USB drivers. If that does not work, take it back.

You can not retrive unfinalised disk because no path was put into place to read the information that was burnt. Data yeap was burnt but way of reading it was put into place.

Sony Mavica MVC CD500


It comes that Disk not being recognized. I had the same camera before. You need to use good quality CDRs or CD-RWs. Usually Sony Mavica disks best with that camera. Maybe you cannot find Mavica in market then go for Sony, Philips, Imation miniCDR/W. also keep the lens of the internal CD writer clean. If you need further assistance please post your question

Good Luck

Finalizing DVD


If you unplugged the recorder while this process was ongoing, it probably failed. You will need to record again.

Have a great day! :)
