I recently bought a canon DC20 and am delighted with the video performance. My problem concerns playback. The manual states in the small print that depending upon the DVD player the picture may freeze between scenes. Having tried a number of players (including a £400 Philips, a Sony PS2 and a PC with DVD drive) I have not found a players which does not show a freeze between scenes. This makes a mockery of trying to play back on anything other than the camcorder itself (which gives a seamless scene change). I have used the camcorder for sporting events and having a 2 second freeze in action each time I use the pause button is totally unsatisfactory.
I have taken this up with Canon - without success to date - but clearly their claim of the camcorder producing discs which can be used in most home DVD players is untrue. Any advice? Anybody else have this problem?
I haven't been able to play back my recordings on any DVD players. Do I have to finalize a disc after videoing? If so, how do I do this? I was told by the Best Buy salesman that the mini discs would be able to play back in my DVD player. Not so as of yet.

If the camcorder does not read any disk, and makes noise when reading a disk and does not start reading, then the problem concerns either motor assembly or lens pickup. If the disk is spinning and lens had been cleaned already, then the lens must be replaced.
U can use Nero, where you create your own dvd, click on import disc. There will be a item, select it and click import disc. The file will be stored at the default nero folder witch usualy is under "My Document's" an then under "Nero" then "Imported" then a folder wih the date of import will provide you with the videos. This is how i did it until it started to eritate me, because your dvd should not be scrached in any way, the program will terminate if it cant import that piece of video.
I hope this could help you...
