Hello,

The problem could be that the lens of your device is dirty or weak, i will advice you get a lens cleaner to cleaner the lens of your device, if after cleaning, the problem still persist, you will need to replace the lens of your device because it can no longer read disc.

Also, the disc you insert could be bad, try use another disc, if it is same problem, clean or replace the lens as advice earlier.

Take care.

    Hello,

    The problem could be that the cd you insert in your device is not dvd or maybe the lens on your device is not dvd, that is why it cannot read the disc, i have experience such before, where the lens on my player is not dvd and it is meant to be dvd, i have to return it for replacement. I believe the problem is either the lens on your device or the disc.

First check if the disk is a new blank one ..cause the DVD -R are not rewritable ...than see that in some burners the disk need a formatting before burning ..special in recorders...If this is not the case just get another disk cause if the writer is not able to read it it means that the disk may be defective
Another way to make the disk ..and a safer with much more control is to download the videos into computer and burn the disk from the computer using either the burner you mentioned..or the DVD writer of the computer ..This way you will have control on the format of the video ..you can also manage them before..and I'm sure that will be no problems ..try to use NERO to burn them ..
You will also need the driver to connect the camera and be able to download the videos first ..

    than the problem is with the disks..look in the manual and see what kinda disk tip it has to be in use for to be seen ..and it doesn't matter if it is new or not ..it can have issues as well if it is new from the box..In this case my advice is to go straight to the dealer and change it ..or ask to fix it ..as long it is still in warranty

    Like I said ..there are burners that do not accept but one kinda disk ..or only DVD +R and rewritable ones..that are able to be formatted before using ..some dvd recorders are acting the same ..accepting only some kinda disks and demanding formatting before using ..and finishing the disk when the job is done ...this is why I suggested to use the computer cause it is much easier to use and less demanding ..

Can I hook up to the DW 100 Canon burner with my ZR200 to burn mini tapes on DVD?


No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.) USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)

Did not burn dvd


The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."

The DW-100 is really more for archiving your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to your problem:

1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def, you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder to your TV via an HDMI cable.

2. If you want to have standard DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to your computer and convert them to standard-definition using video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good) to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).

I've used the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3 instead of letterboxed.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Will the DW-100 DVD burner work with the HG-20 camcorder


Yes.

I recently purchased the DW-100 for my HG-20. Works like a charm.

Some quick gotchas though...
People complain that Canon was not 100% clear about it's use. You can only burn standard definition (i.e. "non" hi def) DVDs if that's how the camera recorded it... I never looked to see if my HG-20 is capable of the old stuff, but basically the camera is sending data to the burner and there's no real conversion going on. Some Canon models record in Standard Def others do not.

Personally, I use the burner to backup videos onto standard DVD-R (or DVD-R DL) discs. The discs are burned in a Blu-ray compatible format. (but you get 4.7 or 8GB onto a disc vs the 30GB you'd get on a Blu-ray disc - but don't complain b/c the Blu-ray discs cost a fortune.)

If you don't own a Blu-Ray player you can connect the USB b/w the "camera & burner", and then the HDMI b/w the "camera & TV" and send the video from the burner, thru the camera, and watch on a Hi Def TV. (Complex but it does work and the picture quality is great).

Hop this helps.

When connecting the dvd burner and the camcorder to a cannon fs11


I'm not 100% sure of the question your asking here but I believe that the message you're getting is because you need to have...

(A.) Power cable plugged into the DW-100 (I assume you're OK there).
(B). USB Cable connecting the DW-100 and your camcorder (OK there too)
(C.)You must ALSO have your power cable plugged into your camcorder.

Many people forget about 'C' but Canon works on the premise that offloading data can take time and drain the whole battery so you must have everything running on A/C in order to do your work.

Hope this helps.

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.
