    I keep having this same problem while filming my sons track meets. It records and is going great, then when I put it on standby and go back to record, it says "movie recording disabled." Now when I go to view what I recorded-it's gone! Can somebody please help. Not sure what it is I'm doing wrong-if in fact it is a user error. Thanks so much.

It's the disc not the camera......I purchased a 3 pack of Sony DVD-R discs. I put the first disc in and it recorded once. The next time I tried to record I got the message "movie recording disabled". After calling Sony, searching online, resetting the camera and reading through the manual I replaced the disc with another from the 3 pack and it is recording just fine. I read that recording straight to DVD has many problems, and I believe this is one of them. SONY SUCKS!!!!!

That means there's something wrong with the disk. Get a new disk, preferably a Sony mini disc.

Hi,
And the same thing happened to me at my son's Graduation yesterday. It also happened when I was in Italy last year but only one time out of about 10 dvd's so I thought it was something that I hit. I am not too happy about this as it seems to be an issue with this model. I have extended support on my camera and I think I'll give them a call. If I find anything out, I'll let you know.

Can not finalize disk


I have had loads of people ask me this question in just 2 weeks, so it often does happen okay?
Anyway you should not have to do a finalize on the disk, because when you stop filming, the camera reads it's end bit to the DVD auto, then after a few seconds you should be able to open the camera door.

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.

How can i fix the "movie Recording Disabled" on sony DCR-DVD108?


Hi there. I undertand how upset you must be. I would be if it happened to me. Did you check the manual for this error code?

If you didn't, I'll tell you what it means. It means one of 2 things: 1) you have a bad disk or:
2) you are trying to use a disk that has been finalized. Once a disk has been finalized, it cannot be recorded on.

I'm sorry, I know it's a bummer, and it's not what you wanted to hear, but it happens occasionally. There is no fix for it. You just have to get a new disk and record it again.

Thanks for using FixYa, and if you have any further questions, just comment back. If you don't mind, please rate my solution a fixya.
