This has happened several times to me where I have recorded some stuff onto a Maxell mini DVD-RW and when I go to finalize, I get an error message *Unable to recognize the recording mode of the disc.* It was recorded in Video format and I also cannot get it to be recognized by a computer. This is happening about 1/3 of the time and it is extremely aggrivating. Is there anyway to retrieve the data when this happens or to prevent it from happening?

hi, i dont think so usely it as to be made by the camera,normally when you finish recording
you press pause and then stop and let it go for few minutes and the camera should finilize
the disk by chapter,then eject.
You can convert mini disc ( 8 cm diameter ) to a standard DVD disc via your PC.
Please follow this steps :
1. Install your canon software/driver in PC
2. Install DVD creator in PC ( common software is use Nero scout)
3. Download your mini disc data to PC
4. Enhanced your data with Nero
5. Burn your data to standard DVD
Make sure you have DVD RW hardware in your PC.
if you are using a -r disc finalize should appear in menus-if using -rw may not appear because rw's don't always have to be finalized to play in things beside camcorder- -r can not delete anything on them either they only record exactly as you are recording
1. turn it on
2. use cord.
3.move the on buttom to mode. it will show the recordings.
4. select a recording
5.press function butom. it will up bring several choices among "menu"
6. slect menu
7. it will give you all the chioces you need to title, finailize, protect and all needed to view the dvd
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.
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.
I think it is a problem with the camera.
We had one, couldn't finalize, exchanged that, and still the same problem.
Canon NO help whatsoever.
Even the mini disc companies that we purchased, NO help either.
We are returning this camera and going with a hard drive.
We were able to plug the camera to a DVD recorder and copy onto a full size disc.
