I found a program called "inDisc Recovery" that located the lost VOB file, and saved it to my computer. You put the dvd-r in your computer drive, run the program and then look under "deleted" folder

Please don't call me dear - it was one wild night of passion, nothing more.
As I explained when we were using the camcorder on that very night, to format the disc in the camcorder, you use settings in the menu system - as to which ones, my memory is a little hazy, thanks to the wine.

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.

C 13:02 dvd-rw mini disc errors

It's not recommended to format a disc in the Computer and use it in the Camcorder.

It seems that there is an issue with the disc.

The disc should be formatted within the Camcorder itself.

I will forward a link to a page where you can get the information regarding the error message appearing on the LCD screen of the Camcorder.
