Sounds like you're using the "cine" setting.

Switch the camera on.
Move the "cine / photo" switch (it's just above the joystick) to the "photo" position (i.e. to the right).
Use the joystick to move between images.

Good Luck

    What you are viewing on your PC is the Photomovie version of your photos.
    To view them individually you need to view the original still images. These are still on the disc.
    The disc has two folders - VIDEO_TS for the Photomovie and DCIM for the still images. Inside DCIM there is a folder called 101CANON. Open this folder to see the still images - they all have .jpg file extensions.
    It may be quicker to copy the 101CANON folder to your PC, and open the copied file on your PC.

  • Kaytho Feb 06, 2008

    Sorry, but somehow your camcorder has 'lost' the 101CANON folder which holds all the jpeg (.jpg) files which are the still photos.

    I have just created still photos in VR mode on my DC210, finalised the disc and viewed it on my PC - the 101CANON folder with jpeg files is on my disc.

    Without that folder you won't have any jpeg images.

    I had to create a small video before I could finalise the disc, but that video had nothing to do with the pics.

    Finalising is done for the whole of the disc - videos and pics, and you have to have a video on the disc to do the finalising - The camcorder won't finalise a 'pics only' DVD..

    You don't need to create a photomovie. The photomovie is just a way of allowing a DVD player to show your pics. A DVD player cannot recognise JPEG, but will recognise MPEG.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder


I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Cheers.

I can't download movies from my Canon DC220 Camcorder


if you are trying to play the dvd in the computer you have to finalize it first. The Camcorder has to be plugged in for this to work. if you want to see the Pictures make sure that you have it in the view mode. Where you would see ll the pictures on the camera, then it should show up on you "My Computer". It took me a while too. Good luck

Editing a DVD-R


I guess you read this on page 5 of the user manual.

DVDs initialised in VIDEO mode cannot be edited on the camcorder . However, they can be played on most DVD players and can be edited on a PC, but they must be finalised on the camcorder first.

Once finalised, there is no problem in downloading to a computer, but as the Canon DC210 does not have a USB connection the 'download' consists of taking the finalised DVD from the camcorder to the PC and working with it on the PC.

To finalise make sure you have the camcorder connected to the mains through the power adapter and the mains switched on before you start. Then switch on the camcorder and follow the instructions on page 61 of the user manual.

There is no need to transfer the DVD to a DVD-RW format to edit it.

Take your finalised DVD and place it in your PC DVD drive - you can use the operating system functions to transfer the DVD contents to a folder on the PC.

You'll need some commercially available software to edit the files you've transferred - a couple of suggestions are Magix, Adobe - there are many programs available.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !

And good luck with the school project.

Dvd to prints


You can either
1. Transfer the still pictures from the camcorder to the PC, and then, either
1.1 use your PC software to print the pictures, or
1.2 use an online photo processing lab to print the pictures for you.
OR
2. Take the disc from the camcorder to a local photo printing shop and ask them to print the pictures you want printed.

But first ...
before you can transfer pictures or video from your Canon DC210 to your PC you need to finalise the disc in the camcorder.

You also need to make sure that the DVD drive on your PC is capable of reading a DVD-R, DVD-R DL or DVD-RW format as these are the only disk formats that the DC210 will handle. Not all PC DVD drives can read these formats.

To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then, switch on the camera, put it into playback mode, Press 'Func.', select main menu, select 'disk operations', select 'finalise'. Don't move or shake the camera or switch it off whilst the finalising step is underway - this could cause problems.

Once finalising is complete, take it out of the camcorder and then follow steps 1.1, 1.2 or 2 above.

Good Luck.

The DC210 will only work with with Mini DVD -R or -RW. I had the same problem when the BestBuy salesman sold me +RW Mini DVD with the DC210. I went back to the store and got them changed for +RW and I was then able to use the DC210.
