Re: troubleshooting

It must be plugged into wall power to finalize. You cannot finalize on battery power.

If it is a camcorder that requires a disc to record then you must install the software the camcorder came with.If you bought it without the software disc,I recommend looking it up. Or you can try putting the recordabble disc in your laptops DVD player.

Initialize the discs then record...but then it still wont play on the computer/dvd player Canon camcorder dc210

I have a Samsung recorder, and it requires you to "finalize" the disc before it will play on another unit. Check your manual for specifics, or look in your menu for the "finalize disk" option. Hope this helps...

Finalizing disc

In order to finalize the disk you must have it plugged in. So no one does it on accident. After it is finalized you will be able to open it up on the computer or on most DVD players. I had the same problem at first, I have the same camera, I love it now...

I hope this helps you, let me know..

Cannot finalize dvd-r

Have solved the finalized problem by simply looking on the Canon website and read that you have to plug the camera into the wall to do it! If only they simply put this in the manual!!! Goodluck!

Record on DC210 and playback on home DVD

You should absolutely be able to play the recorded DVDs from your camcorder in your DVD player, as long as you remember to finalize the disc and the disc is compatible with the player. If your DVD player is less than five years old or so, you should be fine, provided you're not using dual-layer discs.
