Question about Panasonic VDR-D100 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Hi..I have a Panasonic VDR-D160GN video camera. I only know the basics of its use. eg, I know i have to format/initialize a new disc and have to finalize it before playing it somewhere else other than in the recorder itself. ( I have done this many times and have been successfull ). However, I have a disc in the recorder at the moment which has been formatted/initialized and has some video footage of our family holiday.Given that there was still space left on the disc, I did not finalize it, but I wanted to copy this footage to my computer via usb cable.It was all going fine suggesting on the screen that the copying of files was taking place until at the end it said unable to complete (with no reason listed)....Now, it appears that the footage has been lost as the camcorder wont recognise the disc and is asking do I want to format the disc. So.......my questions are : did this only happen because I didnt finalize it first, and secondly is there an easy way of finding lost footage???.....Thanks Peter

When i have had that happen to a customer i have had to replace the dvd drive assy to take of the problem. Your videos on your disc should still be retieveable once the drive has been replaced, also ask for any firmware updates for your drive assy. I hope this helps

Hi,

I'm sorry to say that the "Repair Disc" option re-formats the disc thus resulting in all the data being erased. There is no way of recovering the data once the repair is done.

Does it ask you to format the disk? You will need to format it before it is ready for use. Good Luck!

Your computer probably wont read the disc, you may need to upload it. If you don't know how to do that I'd be happy to explain. Hope that helps.

Try using only DVD-RW disc (not DVD ROM/-R/+RW) and format as "Video" mode. When you are done shooting finalize the disc. Then iMovie or your movie maker should recognize the video.

You need to do formatting on the disc when using it for the first time. Remember, formatting needs to be done by camcorder. If you used the disc before and formatted it on different machine - it won't work.
