Question about Canon DC220 DVD Camcorder
I used my camcorder for the first time at the weekend.
I used a compatible rewritable DVD and recorded in Video mode as per info in the manual.
I then wanted to view the DVD in our dvd player. I understand from the manual that i need to finalise the disc. When i go to disc options it only gives me the following options:
- Disc info
- Disc initialise.
The disc had already been initialised and it has recorded footage.
I did take the disc out and put it back in before trying to finalise it.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?
Had the same problem, You have to press the mode button down which changes it to play and brings up the frames in the viewer. Then select Func, it will then give you a menu screen that shows finalise. What the manual does not say is press down the mode button to get the camera in play mode, when you do the gree light for play comes on.
Hope this helps

Try plugging the ac adapter in first. This should make the finalize option available.

CDRoller or Isobuster might work

There are three ways of transferring the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer. One is by using the Picture Motion Browser Software, other by using the A/V, USB cable after finalizing the disc in the Camcorder and finally using the DVD-ROM Drive in the Computer after finalizing the disc. If you're trying to transfer using the 2nd and 3rd option, the the disc in the Camcorder should be finalized.
Also make sure that the disc is formatted in DVD-Video mode instead of DVD-VR mode. VR mode recorded discs can only be played back using a VR Compatible Software/Player or in the same Camcorder. DVD-Video mode recording will help you in playing the discs in all the Players and DVD Viewing Software.
I always recommend transferring the videos to the Computer using the supplied PMB Software.
