Re: dvd mini disc does not play

My client had the same problem. A friend of mine said that you must first finalize the mini disk in the camcorder before you place it in your PC. Did this and I could play it on the PC. Try it.

Drive won't play blu ray discs but will play DVDs. Hooked up to Samsung R580 Laptop.

Windows Media Player does not play Blu Ray discs. You need 3rd party software such Cyberlink Power DVD. Follow that link and you can download a 30 day trial.

My lg dvd writer is not detecting dvd but it is detecting cd...


the laser (lens) of the Rom is very weak, that's why it cannot read DVD discs. DVD discs are usually larger that CD's and it takes an active lens to play DVD disc.

So if its still under warranty, you can return it, if not, get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens of your ROM.

Good luck.

Trying to burn photos from dell laptop to DVD-RW blank disc . "error - no disk in drive"

Try another disc first ,if no luck than try another disc manufacturer. If it does not help check if you can play anything from this drive if no, check drive connection in your laptop you can also can check BIOS settings for this DVDRW drive and settings for IDE or Sata data transfer mode make shure it works in Ultra DMA not PIO mode. Be carefull with BIOS Setup!!! If nothing helps replace drive. Good Luck!

Did not burn dvd

The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."

The DW-100 is really more for archiving your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to your problem:

1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def, you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder to your TV via an HDMI cable.

2. If you want to have standard DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to your computer and convert them to standard-definition using video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good) to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).

I've used the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3 instead of letterboxed.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

I recorded my movies on the dw 100 but now i can't grt them to play on my dvd player

The DW-100 records discs based on the format they were originally recorded.

If your camera is recording HiDef videos than the discs this unit creates will be viewable on a Blu-ray disc player.

If your camera is recording in Standard Definition (ie. NOT HD) then I believe that the discs will work in regular or upconverting DVD players.

My Canon camcorder does not record in Standard Def so can't quite vouch for that last comment though.
