You're fortunate the disc ejects. Many slot-loading DVD drives will get these mini discs stuck in them. You either need an external tray type DVD drive (some are $50 or less) or borrow a computer a tray type DVD drive with either the possibility of copying the data to the hard drive and then to a full size DVD (or dual optical drives (only one needs to be a writer) to copy from one to another). Check the specs for mini-disc (8 cm) support.
I don't know about downloading to a computer, but you can buy a VCR/DVD recorder for about $140, put the VHS-C cartridge in the adapter and transfer to a DVD, or plug your Camcorder into a DVD recorder (about $119) and copy. It couldn't hurt to check out some of the transfer services that could do a little editing and copying for a modest fee.
Can you explain exactly what you are doing when you get the eror messgae?
Are you copying from your HDD to the DVD?
Are you copying from the camera to the DVD?
Also what sort of DVD/RW drive are you useing?
Let em know and I will see if I can assist you.
It's not your discs. BELIEVE ME!
We had the same problem, and had to exchange the camera.
New camera had the same problem.
We personally think there is a defect in this brand.
Too many people are having the same problem.
I called Canon and they blame JVC and Memorex which was recommended.
Called the disc manufacture and they blame Canon.
Canon did tell me not to fill up the disc and then try to finalize it.
Try a test disc and only film about 10mins of it and see if you can finalize it.
Make sure you are plugged into an outlet when trying to finalize.
We just hooked up our camera to a DVD recorder and transfered all images to a standard size disc.
Either they are not telling you the proper way to finalize in the manuel or this camera has a major defect.
At least we know we haven't lost any images by copying onto a full size disc.

There are two drivers available depending on the specific camera you have, as well as the owners manual. I can't provide any other software from the CD. I would if I had it.
Good luck. And thanks in advance
for reviewing me.
