Question about Digital Cameras

2 Answers

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!

    You lost me. I don't understand what you mean by "firmware". Do you think doing so would help me restore the currently unaccesible discs or just protect future ones during finalization?

Hey there

those errors are read/write errors done with the blank disks. this usually happens when the it writes too damn fast or slows down. Heat is also one factor from successive burning...you will get random codes like this. this is one way that your camera protects itslef.

we cant do anything about your data but just be sure to be careful when cleaning your cam.

you can contact there customer support for questions regarding your cam.

    firmware is like a driver for your camera. if your manufacturer has a new firmware for your product, you should upgrade to the new firmware. this usually resolves some issues regarding some errors that your product has.



    you can check your manufacturers website for any firmware upgrade.

You think you can finalize the disk, with Nero? When I had problems with multisession disks, I most of the time managed to finalise the disk with an old version of Nero. (the software that comes with almost every cd and dvd burner.

Create online tutorials with FCE-Distribute Edited HMC150 MTS files to BlipTV or...


Convert/Edit HMC150 AVCHD MTS Videos to FCE and Distribute via BlipTV and TubeMogul <br /><br />I am recording on a <b>Panasonic HMC-150</b> (typically in 1080p30 and 1080p24) and do my editing in FCE. However I need a program to convert the recorded files into something FCE can recognize. I do online tutorials and Distributee to roughly a couple dozen different sites through <b>BlipTV and TubeMogul</b>. So far I've been limited to recording in 720p30 because it's the best format that I can work with through iMovie (I use imovie to import the raw video, export as a quicktime and then import into FCE for final editing then do a final QT conversion to mpeg-4 for upload; and to be honest not real excited on the quality I'm getting as a finished video. So I need a program which can let me <b>Create online tutorials with FCE and convert Panasonic HMC-150 <a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">1080p MTS to high quality FCE suitable format</a></b> for editing. After editing, I need Distributee to different sites through BlipTV and TubeMogul. <br /> <br />After searching a Panasonic HMC-150 AVCHD to FCE converter, I find <b>Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac</b> as the preferred Panasonic HMC-150 to FCE MOV converter on Mac OS X like Leopard and Snow Leopard. It is a great choice to <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/06/convertedit-panasonic-hmc150-videos-to-fce-and-then-distribute-via-bliptv-and-tubemogul/">do online tutorials with FCE and then Distribute via BlipTV or TubeMogul</a></b> with perfect quality. <br /><br />To help those who may face the same problem like me, or want to rewrap <b>AVCHD to AIC .mov on Mac for HD editing in Final Cut Express</b>, I here list a few steps with the fast AIC video conversion. <br /><br />Step1. Capture/Import AVCHD files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. <br />Connect Panasonic HMC-150 camcorder to computer via USB cable, and launch Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac from Application folder. With built-in wizard, you can easily to capture mts video footage from camcorder to the program. Select "Import" instead of Backup to quickly capture videos from camcorder. You can find imported videos under "Camcorder Tab" in the main interface of Final Mate. <br /><br />Step2. <b>Merge Panasonic HMC-150 AVCHD files into one movie for conversion</b>. <br />Click the drop-down button of "Add Movie" icon and choose "For Conversion" to create a blank movie. Once you've imported your video footage, drag and drop the video clips from Camcorder Tab to the blank movie in Movies Tab. In this way, all video clips will be merged as one single movie for conversion. <br /><br />Step3. <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Convert HMC-150 MTS files to FCE MOV</a></b>. <br />Click the Export button and choose "Export into Editor". Follow iMovie or Final Cut Express &gt; Apple Intermediate Codec (*.mov) to choose output format for editing in FCE.

How do I transfer my .mov files from camera to dvd player?


Did you finalize the DVD when you finished burning it? Did you choose to have the ability to add more data to the DVD (not recommended) or to record in a single session?

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video...


are you doing a finalize on your -r discs? if not finalized won't play in anything but camcorder-dvd can be finalized at any time-you should not lose your footage--rw can sometimes play in players w/out being finalized can also delete scenes and reuse-look for finalize in your playback menus
