Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD403 DVD Camcorder

My LED screen got damaged, and I don't know how to finalize a mini disc in order to playback on computer and transfer to DVD. Can you tell me how to finalize the DVD-RW disc so I can play it back??

I have a Sony DCR-DVD403 with a damaged LED screen. I've been trying to figure out how to finalize a DVD-RW disc so that I can copy it to DVD.

Any help would be so appreciated!!

    Can you buy a replacement LED Screen, and if so, is it worth spending that much? Can't find one listed anywhere.

My LED is damaged too...don't know how it happened, but..if you hook your handycam to your TV - you can see the LED on the TV and know where to press on the LED to finalize.

I lost the driver


It is not required to use any driver to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.
Once you connect the Camcorder to the Computer, you will get the DVD disc in the Camcorder as an additional drive under My Computer.
You can find the Video_10 folder under the drive and copy it to the Computer to transfer the videos.
However, there are some occasion, computer may ask driver when connecting the Camcorder.. It may be due to genuine driver incompatibility..
In these type of situation, you can finalize the disc in the Camcorder and insert it in the CD/DVD drive on the Computer to transfer the videos.
You can use any software which you used to playback the commercially produced discs to playback the videos from the disc.
If you need any assistance regarding this, you can direct reach me by clicking the following link.

Mini-DVD playback


http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900000562/DC210NIM-EN.pdf here is the manual look on page 62 for playback on a pc. you need a dvdrom drive. if you have one make sure you have software like windows media player 10 or 11, or powerdvd to play the movie. as for editing the video is a little bit more tricky. you are going to have to "rip" the video and then combine it in a program like windows movie maker with the other dvd that has been ripped too. when you are done editing in windows movie maker just choose avi or dvd type.

How can i get mini dvd to play on dvd player


Hi,
Make sure that MiniDVD has been finalized in camcorder then it can be playback in any other DVD Player.
Finalize option would be available in camcorder dvd setup menu, select it to finalize recorded mini dvd disc, please note UnFinalized mini dvd disc will only playback in camcorder because of its raw data and Finalization will validate this raw data so other dvd players will recognize this mini dvd disc for playback.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Mini-DVD playback


two things:

1) connect the camcorder to your computer using a USB cable and play it through that, by the way, what computer is it?

2) you can finalize without the ac adapter - its a built in safeguard to ensure that there is enough power to allow finalization to complete

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

Cannot Finalize my DVD


We had the same problem, and had the camera exchanged and same thing happened with that one.
I called Canon, JVC, and Memorex, because those are the discs that we used.
Everyone just blamed each other, for either, bad discs, or bad camera.
What we finally came up with was, we have a recordable DVD player that was fairly cheap, under $100. We hooked up the camera to the DVD and copied it to a full size disc. It somehow finalized the disc.
We were also told that we could bring our disc to a video place to have them do it, finalize it. I would cost us $85 per disc.
I hope this helps. I can tell you though, I am returning this camera and getting a different one. We are very disappointed in that finalization step. We almost lost everything!
