Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute disc) the data/video should be saved on the disc. What can be done to recover this seemingly "lost" data?

Are you doing a finalize on your -r discs? if not finalized won't play in anything but camcorder-dvd can be finalized at any time-you should not lose your footage--rw can sometimes play in players w/out being finalized can also delete scenes and reuse-look for finalize in your playback menus

Use Canon's Zoom Browser software - it comes on the CD with the camera.

Cannon powershot sd750-video problem


FROM WHAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND OUT FROM THE CANON SITES AND REVIEWS MOST OF THESE FUNCTIONS ARE CONTROLLED IN THE PLAYBACK MODE MENU. THEY CLAIM THERE ARE MANY SETTINGS THERE THAT ONE CAN SET TO ACCESS PHOTO'S BY EVERY 10TH PHOTO,SO THAT WOULD MEAN YOU WOULD SEE LIKE 1,10,20,30,40,50 ETC IN RAPID ORDER. THIS SEEMS TO BE WHAT YOUR CAMERA IS DOING. I'M NOT THERE WITH YOUR CAMERA, BUT DOES THIS SOUND LIKE WHAT IT IS DOING? IF IT DOES, THEY SAY YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SET IT TO SHOW ONLY ONE BY ONE ORDER. THIS WOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM,RIGHT? IF THIS ISN'T WHAT YOU THINK YOUR CAMERA IS DOING REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217 AND I'LL SEE IF I CAN FIND MORE INFO IN THEIR REVIEWS. GOOD LUCK! LET ME KNOW HOW YOU COME OUT WITH RESETTING THE MENU.

Just a video of 8.03 minutes captured in my Power Shot A550 Digital Camera shows 867 MB size


A 1.3 hour movie is recorded on a DVD, not a CD. DVDs can hold a minimum of 4.7 GB, or nearly seven times the capacity of CDs. Your 867 MB file of 8.03 minutes indicates that you were recording at about 1,800 KB/sec, or the highest quality recording level. (See specifications here.) If you're willing to record your video in a smaller size, you can get much more recording on a CD.
