    I have the same problem, but I can't figure out how to initialize the disc. They say that screen should automatically come up when you put in a new disc DVD-RW, but it doesn't. All I get is "Cannot recognize disc". Help

DVD-R discs can be used with no preparation, but a DVD-RW must be initialised before it can be used for the first time.

You may also have to initialise a DVD-RW if you get the message "UNABLE TO RECOGNIZE THE RECORDING MODE OF THE DISC" .

Also, make sure you always use DVD "minus" format discs - the DC210 will not work with any DVD "plus" format discs.

When you initialise the disc you will be asked to chose between Video mode and VR mode. Most DVD players will play a Video mode disc, but a VR mode disc can be edited with the camcorder. My preference is Video mode - I can then play on a DVD player and edit on a PC.

PD CD-RW 24x1040 external usb2 firmware


This device is meant only for CDs. However, the drive is an internal CDRW with IDE interface. You can substitute some DVDRW drives, but some DVD drives are picky about voltage and amperage. This enclosure is on the weak side for most DVDRW drives. You'll want to find a DVDRW that can work on as low as 8VDC on the 12VDC line. And the drive can't draw any more than .75A on the 12VDC line either. If the drive requires higher amounts, yor system may only recognize the drive as being connected to your system, but it'll never have the power to read the disc, and just kick it out after spinning the disc around for a short time.
