Question about Canon DC50 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon DC50 will not accept canon dvd-rw disc

I get a message that the camcorder cannot read the disc, please check. I have tried 2 of three new discs. I have no trouble with the dvd-r that I have tried.
I have poured over the manual, but see nothing. I hate to think I can't use rw discs.

Thanks for your time and help

Will dvd+r discs work at all in a canon dc10 camcorder-I have 2 I just got and they show disc error when trying to initialize-thanks


From the camera's user manual on page 6, it says that it can only use DVD-R and DVD-RW disks, so no.. No it can't use DVD+R (or DVD+RW) disks.

I just bought new discs for my Canon DC100. The


It's possible that, for some reason, the disks aren't compatible. It can almost drive you crazy trying to figure out why. To find out for sure if this is the case, try some new Panasonic discs, with the same specifications as the old ones that worked, and see if they work. If they don't work, you're probably having a dvr issue with the laser lens or related parts within the camera. There are many issues with dvrs that develop over time, requiring replacement parts and service. In those cases, it's usually better to get a replacement camcorder. The new HDD camcorders are immune from a lot of problems inherent with dvr and tape recorders.

No disc read on dc100


There are only 4 possible solutions,

1. Dirty or faulty discs, but as you've tried different discs this doesn't seem likely.

2. Condensation has developed in the camcorder, leave it in a dry indoor temperatured place for a couple of hours and try again.

3. Dirty lens won't let the laser read the disc. Look for lens cleaning camcorderkit in a store.

4. Manufacturing error

Hope this will help you.

Initializing DVD-RW Discs


This camcorder only takes DVD-R and DVD-RW, it will not work with the +R discs. I've used Maxell and Fujifilm discs and they both worked fine. You have to make sure the camcorder is plugged in the wall when initializing or else it won't initialize.

The DC210 will only work with with Mini DVD -R or -RW. I had the same problem when the BestBuy salesman sold me +RW Mini DVD with the DC210. I went back to the store and got them changed for +RW and I was then able to use the DC210.
