Use DVD-R/+R instead of the DVD-RW disc.

Just bought samsung sc-dx200 using sony dvd/rw disk and it reads not suppported disc why?


The user manual states:-

"The disc is not recognized in the DVD camcorder. The disc has been finalised in a camcorder manufactured by another company."

In plain English this means that the disc must never have been used in another DVD recording device.

It further states:-

"The supported discs are DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW. Use a new disc."

Double check that you are using DVD-RW and not DVD+RW. They are NOT the same although many devices can use both types. Your camera only uses the DVD- standard and not the DVD+ discs.

If you are using new discs which have never previously been used and if the discs are of the correct type, then you have a faulty camera which will need repair or replacement.

I hope that my answer has been of assistance to you in fixing your problem or has helped you to decide what to do next. Please take a moment to rate my reply.

Format error when i finalise the disk


If a FORMAT ERROR message is displayed, then the inserted disc is not formatted or it is recorded in a different format not useable by the camcorder. If using a DVD-RW or DVD+RW, format the disc prior to use. Otherwise, use a different disc.

What discs do i use in my cannon dc210?


You can use any type of mini dvd's aside from discs that are labelled as RAM discs. As well you won't be able to use anything branded by Sony, any other form of generic disc will work in your camcorder, you might have to format the disc before use but the camcorder will let you know when you power on your device after inserting the disc.
The following formats will work though +R, -R, +RW, -RW.

Formatted disc


Doubt it. On a RW disc, the physical state of the "recording gel" is altered when formatting.

C 13:02 dvd-rw mini disc errors


It's not recommended to format a disc in the Computer and use it in the Camcorder.

It seems that there is an issue with the disc.

The disc should be formatted within the Camcorder itself.

I will forward a link to a page where you can get the information regarding the error message appearing on the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

Formatting the disk


Yes, the mini DVD-RW will work on this camera. When you insert the disk and power on the camcorder (with the mode on DISC), the camcorder will try to read the disk, and if it isn't formatted yet, the LCD display will offer you the option to format it (in VR or Video mode). Simply select and click to format the disk

Camcorder Problem


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.
