Re: transfer from my canon dc210 to my pc
If you can play the DVD disc on your computer you will be able to transfer footage and edit it.
Put the DVD disc into your PC's DVD drive, then
1. Select 'start' 2. Select 'My Computer' 3. Find your PC's DVD drive in the display of devices shown, right click on it, then left click on 'Explore' in the drop down list. 4. Copy all the files you see shown with the 'Explore' option to a folder on your hard drive.
You can now use the software you normally use to edit the files you've just transfered to your hard drive.

I have a Samsung recorder, and it requires you to "finalize" the disc before it will play on another unit. Check your manual for specifics, or look in your menu for the "finalize disk" option. Hope this helps...
DVD Capcorders are typically not meant to edit videos on a computer. DVD Camcorders are usually meadfor someone who doesn't have a computer and simply wants to watch their movies on their TV. I don't believe the DC210 has a firewire (IEEE1394) port on it, so that means you will need to "rip" the video from the DVD.
First, Finalize the DVD following the instructions in your manual
Next, place the DVD into your PC. If it plays in your PC, then we know that your computer can read the disk.
Next, download a free application called "HANDBRAKE" available from handbrake.fr
Handbrake will extract the video and audio from the DVD (it will not damage the DVD) and place it on your hard drive in a format that a movie editor can handle. An AVI file will probable work the best.
Follow the instructions in handbrake and let it it chug away. It will probably take an hour or more to finish. Once it is finished you should be able to to import it into your favorite movie editor.
If you get serious about video editing, I would recommend a tape or flash memory camera with a firewire (IEEE1394) port. The quality will be much better
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
All you should have to do is finalize the disc. Put it in your DVD drive and select the scenes and photos. you need to have DVD playback software to play the disc also if its a DUAL layer disc you have to make sure the drive in your PC can play DL. Enjoy, Lee
You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.
One of two things has gone wrong 1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely 2. You have not finalised the disk.
You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.
Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.
