Question about Canon DC40 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon Help! hi, I have a Canon DC40 mini DVD videocamera. I have been using it for the last year very successfully, good stuff! It was time to change the disk, the last one was full. I took a blank, new one from the same package of mini-DVD's that I had used successfully to this point. I initialized the new disc and got a "cannot read the disk, check the disk" error. I bought new disks, initialized those and got the same error. I put in a disk that I have previously recorded and it plays it just fine. Am I initialized incorrectly? I can't figure this one out... Thanks for your help! Brian
