Broken button Hi! My directional button on the side of my camcorder seems to have broken off in the device.This is, of course, the button I use to finalize my disc,edit my lighting,and other functions.Is there any way I can replace this button, or some way I can at least finalize my discs without it?(It is the silver button with "-far" and "+near" on either side.)

You could finalize your disk on a computer OR if you have the automated edition series, you can push the auto eject button and it will finalize and eject your disk

I want to transfer my DVD's taken with a DC100 Canon video camera to computer files to share on Facebook & other social networking sites. But I have no idea how to get them from DVD to computer file...


please make sure to finalize the disc before inserting it to the computer.

steps:

1.go to media browser(its the mode where you playback recorded videos)
2.press menu button
3.pres right directional button
4.press down directional button and look for the "finalize" option and press ok

note: plug the camcorder to walloutlet during the process and avoid vibrations and movements with the camcorder. it would be better if you place the camcorder on a stable surface during the process.

-wait until finalization finishes and then insert the disc to computer and then copy the videos to a folder in your computer and so that you can upload them to facebook.

I have had a jvc GZ-MG130U for a while. The kids have recorded a whole bunch of things and I finally downloaded it to the PC in order to empty the camcorder. But when I started deleting all the files,...


That's a bummer. I have the same camcorder and yesterday 10-3-2010 mine did the same thing. I deleted some files from the file folder located on my camcorder from my computer (which I learned not to do), went to the disconnect device on the computer and it said "safe to disconnect" so I did. The screen on the camcorder said "connecting to device" the whole time I was transferring files to my computer and after my computer said it was safe to disconnect. After it was safe to remove my camcorder, I unplugged the usb cable and tried to turn off the camcorder and nothing happened. I removed the wall charger and battery which finally turned off the camcorder. I then tried to turn the camera on and same thing as you, Everio sign came on and then the screen went blank. Nothing was accessible after turning the power on. One time an error sign appeared saying something like disc broken, need to restore disc to record video. I tried everything, turning on with wall charger and no battery, pushing buttons while it was turning on, holding down buttons, etc. Finally I tried something that made it work. Don't know exactly what I did, but it started working.
Solution: With the power in off position and the battery removed, as well as the wall charger cable removed, I flipped open the screen, opened the lens, connected the wall charger, turned switch to on position and let it run its coarse. It was on for 5 mins or less then shut itself off. I then flipped the switch to off, let it sit for a few minutes and turned it back on, while it was booting up (this part has no logic behind it) I pushed the "plastic" lock buttons for the battery and a screen appeared asking me if I wanted to restore the hard drive. I quickly clicked yes and all is well. The camcorder is back to factory settings but it at least works. Luckily I copied everything before it crashed. The key for the future is to not delete files from the camcorder while it's connected to your computer.
Sorry for the long post, but hopefully it helps.

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data


I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

INCOMPATIBLE DISC


Good news.. you should be able to put the disc back in to the device that you recorded in on... and go to the menu to do the finalize... in fact, you may be able to add more to you disc prior to the finalize process if you want...
once it's finalized you should be able to view on other equipment... your files should all be there as well.

Let me know how you do!

Can not finalize


Hi, Initially I had the same problem with the finalization process. But then i took off the battery pack and connected to the mains and immediately when i switched on the camcorder again, the ' Finalize ' button was highlighted i.e enabled. I continued with the finalization process and everything was fine. Was able to playback the mini dvd on a very cheap dvd player and also on a computer.

Also be sure to put the camcorder on play mode by sliding down the switch button to mode. You immediately notice that a little green button near play will light up

Finalizing both sides


A Dual Layered (DVD-R DL) disc has two recording layers on the same side of the disc. No recording is made on the 'other' side of the disc.

Finalising the disc will finalise both layers. Most probably your computer DVD drive cannot read both layers of the DVD-R DL disc. DVD-R DL discs can only be played back on DVD devices that are compatible with dual layered discs.

Check your computer DVD drive spec to see whether it can read DL discs.
