Converting videos to DVDs

We shoot on the mimi disk and load to the PC using provides software. problem is when we try to then conver these to DVD-R or DVD+R files. The PC recognizes and it 'acts like' it is recording the file, but whe you try and play this in a DVD player or a computer without the Sony software, it does not play .. acts like the disk is blank. Also can't attach the files to any Powerpoint presentation.

    I have the user guide and have been successful in the past in making DVDs from the Motion Picture Browser on my laptop. I don't know if the problem is with the camcorder or the new DVD-R and DVD+R that are available. All I know is those will not play back on the computer OR DVD players. We tried on four different computers of different vintages. All seem to have the same problem

    It did on the 4th computer we tried it on. It does non on my two computers.

    So does the burned DVD play on a computer that does have the Sony software installed?

Disk error 0280


Error 0280 on Hitachi mv350a DVD camera : It looks the dvd had bad spots that could not be read. After getting frustrated trying to get any info from Hitachi manuals and support, I just decided to try to extract the data directly from the dvd(fujitsu dvd-r disk). Since my DVD was not finalized I could not copy the files directly using Windows Explorer, so I tested several applications and here it's what worked for me: I downloaded isobuster (www.isobuster.com), and I was able to view the tracks on the dvd, then I used the "Extract" option to create an image directly from the faulty dvd and it created a couple of files with the extension .ibq. I checked these ibq files and two of them were huge, so I assumed those were my video data. I renamed these files from *.ibq to *.vob(isobuster has options to extract these "image files", but you need to register it first...), anyways I tried to open these new vob files with PowerDVD and they PLAYED JUST FINE :)! Finally I just used a DVD editor to load the new .vob files and I burnt a new DVD. I hope it will save you guys some time... Mihai from Romania :)

I am trying to copy the DVD I finalized in the Canan DC210 to ano


Simple way if you have two dvd trays in your computer: just pop in the mini-disk in one tray and load a DVD+r, or DVD-r recordable disk in the tray of the DVD burner. Use the burning software that is available on your computer to "copy the disk".Other way:Just popin your mini-dvd into your computer and drag and copy the file folder (video_ts folder)onto your hard drive. Now, use dvd burning software that supports DVD images. I use the free ImgBurn program from: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ImgBurn. (Remember, use "build mode" within ImgBurn to create the "DVD image" that the program will burn to disk.Disregard all the terminology if you don't understand it. ImgBurn is very simple to use. I mention "DVD image" because the conventional type of disk burning (copying documents, photos, etc. on disk) will just create a "data disk" with files on it. Video files burned in this way will play on computers but not on all stand alone DVD players.

Panasonic vdr-50 comes with software that you MUST use to move your video from the dvd to your PC. It saves it as a gigantic mpeg. Problem with the software is - it's junk. No simple function such as file...


I do not use panasonic software, it useless.
I inserted (RAM or Finalized disk) onto the PC
and used convertxtodvd (software) to convert VRO to (DVD-VOB) (no problems)
I used dvd shrink to combine multiple 30minutes disks onto a single dvd. I reformatted the RAM disk for future use
I have to agree that vdr-50 is a piece of junk.
Many time it got Data Error or CRC error, is like random.
The battery life shorten very fast even is a 6 hours battery
, do not know why , no help from Tech Support

Trouble transferring video onto PC


First thing to try is updating the picture package software(assuming you have windows XP); http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=DCRDVD403&UpdateType=Everything&SelectOS=7 Probably worth uninstalling and reinstalling the program before applying the update. The update doesn't claim to fix your issue, but try it anyway, there are sometimes additional parts to these updates. Here is the link for the user manual if you need it; http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DCRDVD403®ion_id=1 Check page 100 - USB speed setting - see if that makes a difference. Check page 86, it has contact links for pixela, who support the software. If you record a movie, then finalise the disc before trying to transfer the video, this should stop any recording over information without formatting the disc first. then put the disk into your pc dvd drive instead of using the cable link. You should then be able to view the movies using most media player programs. Try a dvd on which there are only movie files, no still images - see if you get the same problem. Hope this helps, please ask again if you still have a problem :)

Help - Capturing Video from a DVD-R Disc


I took the plunge based on manufacturers marketing claims and sales level tech support - Mistake! Panasonic VDR M50. The DVD-R disks are fairly straightforward. They can be played in my DVD video player and my PC, and I can use Fleximage DVD-to-AVI for conversion to a file format I can use for editing. The camera creates sequencial files for some reason and this software will only convert the first file. Very frustrating! I ended up playing the DVD-R on my DVD video player and using the video cable, transferred the video back to a DVD RAM disk on the camera. See DVD RAM problems below. The software that came with the camera has so far proven worthless. I have struggled with the DVD RAM disks. They are fabulous to use in shooting and editing on the camera but I cannot for the life of me get the DVD format converted off the DVD RAM. They cannot be read by my DVD video player or my DVD drive on my PC. I can see and even transfer the files to the PC through USB but for some reason, the DVD-to-AVI software will not recognize the files that were recorded and I cannot use the file format from the DVD ROM for anything other than viewing the video. Again, the software that came with the camera has so far proven worthless.
