Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD403 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

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.

Disc error when loading new disc


miniDVD camcorders are extremely picky about what discs they will accept. In the user manual or on the camcorder, it should say if it is R or RW. Also, there is a difference in DVD- and DVD+ Make sure that you are using the appropriate disc. I have had good luck with the brand Maxell. Sony will, most of the time, take this disc and then "recommend" that you use a Sony disc. If this does not solve the problem, you may have a bad laser assy.

Discs will not play back on dvd


What DVD's are you using +R/RW -R/RW some formats may not work especially on non-branded media some DVD players wont even play CD-R but will play some CD-RW of the correct brand.

I suggest that you try your finalized DVD in your PC then create an image using ImageBurn then burn the image onto a branded media and try again. Most firmware on DVD burners are very forgiving and will support a wider range of manufacturers and formats.

Hope this helps, you might want to look on your DVD players website for updated firmware you will need a blank CD and create a update disc using your computer.

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.

I am unable to figure out how to delete movies from the disc?


You can delete files on DVD-RW disc only if it is not finalized.
If DVD-RW is finalized you need to format it through format option in menu.

DVD-RW ( DVD Re-Writable)
Thanks.

Format Error


First option would be to attempt to read the disk in another DVD player, for example on a PC. If that succeeds then transferring the data can be done via the PC. Another thing to try is to reset your Camcorder - refer to the manual to locate the switch and then try again. If neither works then re-formatting is probably the only answer. Always format the disks in the camcorder - not elsewhere.Good luck.
