Question about Canon DC100 DVD Camcorder

Initializing DVD-RW Discs

When I turn on my DC100 it tries to initialize the disc on its own, but then says error or can't read disc. If I go to menu and try to click on initialize manually, it will not even come up with options. Is there anything to do or try? Should I try a few brands of discs, or should any work?

THanks

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.

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.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder


I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Cheers.

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.

Delete


Unless you're using DVD-RW discs, you won't be able to delete any recordings. Changes cannot be made to DVD-R discs once they are recorded on.

Initializing disc


Yes - you're trying to initialise a +R DL.

Two problems
1. The DC210 only takes - format DVDs

2. You only need to initialise DVD-RW discs (see page 57 of the manual)

By initialising the DVD+R you have written to it once. having done that, you cannot write anything else to that disc. I find it easier to use DVD-RWs so that I can re-use them.

Good Luck.
