I get loads of the same question you ask every day, the DVD disks do sadly fail, out of a pack of 10 you can say that 2 will not write or play back, this is still the reason most pro movie makers like myself will only use movie tape today like the Hi 8 mm sort.
Also beware as we have found that lots of DVD disks we have made over 9 years ago no longer will work, so never feel your precious movies are pernament with this new mode of recordings.

We recorded on a DVD-R disc (SONY DCR-108 brand new) and replayed what we recorded a few times and removed the disc without finalizing it. Now when we put it back into the camcorder it will not play or...


I would suggest you try cleaning the disc with a soft cloth, wipe from center outwards. Check for scratches, dust, dirt, use small amount of water if required. Also try cleaning the lens pickup in the camera. The disc should read without finalize process in the same camcorder it was recorded in. If you still cannot get it to read, I would suggest a video transfer service may be able to recover the data. Call
888.451.2220http://www.apmstudio.com/ would be just one example of these services. Look locally first, they may be able to read the disc for you.

Sony Handycam Disc May Be Scratched Message


your camera might have an issue with the lens not reading the disc properly. if you already tried using b/n dvd disc, just make sure there are no smudges on it when you place it in the dvd cam. to futher isolate issue,try playing back discs with previous recordings that you made. if still it doesn't work. reset the camcorder (check manual for reset button location, make sure cam powered on when you press button using any fine-tipped object). if still didn't work.do power reset.remove battery or ac adapter.leave the cam w/o any power source for at least a minute. if your still getting the same problem, it won't hurt to try cleaning the lens using an 8cm dvd disc cleaner (w/c usually comes w/a non-abrasive solution) as the last resort. if everything fails, unit may need service. hope this helps. thanks:)

Dvd recorder can't read disc it previously read


Take the Disc out and put it aside. You must clean the Laser Eye, and clean dust and other matter from inside your recorder. Clean Eye with rubbibg alcohol and q-tip. A regular CD/DVD cleaner disc will not work. After cleaning, reinsert your Disc and Finalize it.

Panasonic dvr d 200 hand camera - the recorded disc doesn't play on regular dvd player


First I must say I have different camera, but in my case I must close the disc session from camera menu, so theat after it dvd could be played in dvd players and after it you can't record on that disk anymore. If you alredy know that, then sorry. I have a problem that some non-scratched in any way disks with data just don't respond at all, but that's another story. All the best.

You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.

Why do I somethimes see digital noise while playing a movie?


There may be some fingerprints or dirt on the surface of the disc. Simply clean the disc using a soft cloth and the recommended DVD disc cleaning solution. Do not touch the recording side or place the disc where it could be scratched.
