I recorded my movies on the dw 100 but now i can't grt them to play on my dvd player


The DW-100 records discs based on the format they were originally recorded.

If your camera is recording HiDef videos than the discs this unit creates will be viewable on a Blu-ray disc player.

If your camera is recording in Standard Definition (ie. NOT HD) then I believe that the discs will work in regular or upconverting DVD players.

My Canon camcorder does not record in Standard Def so can't quite vouch for that last comment though.

With sony dvdirect vrd-mc5, can I burn pictures from my computer


Yes and no... you can not hook it up directly to your computer and burn copies of pix. You can however transfer your pictures to a memory card (SD, MS or CF) and then put that in the VRD-MC5 and burn your pix.

Hope this helps!

Sony vrd-vc10 drive door


Davidxjohn
Right on the drive you will find a small hole, take a pin and press it a little bit, it will open up the DVD tray for you. Sometimes the drives are just locked by some software, this is the best way to release your stuck cd or dvd.

Hope that helped!
