Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder
My gateway laptop does not consistently play my mini dvd's from my sony camcorder. One will play, and then the next time I try, that same dvd won't work. CD's and full size DVD's play fine. Is there any reason for this other than a faulty DVD drive?
Two problems here.
To JOA629 - You may possibly have initialised the disc in VR mode by mistake. VR mode discs will not play on a PC. Are you re-initialising the disc between when it works and when it doesn't ? If you're using VIDEO mode, are you finalising the disc on the camcorder before using it on the PC ?
To dewynn729 - you have intialised the disc in VR mode, which is a newer format than VIDEO mode. VR mode discs will produce .VRO file extension. Record your video on a disc initialised in VIDEO mode, finalise the disc on the camcorder (don't forget to plug the camcorder into the power adapter, and switch both on), then read the disc on a PC.
