Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder
I am reading in my manual for our Canon DC-210 that the particular disk I bought cannot be edited. My daughter recorded a lot for a school project, and now it cannot be edited.
First of all, should there be any problem getting it downloaded to a computer? I don't think she could even do that.
Is it possible for me to transfer from a DVD-R to a DVD-RW so it can be edited?
I guess you read this on page 5 of the user manual.
DVDs initialised in VIDEO mode cannot be edited on the camcorder . However, they can be played on most DVD players and can be edited on a PC, but they must be finalised on the camcorder first.
Once finalised, there is no problem in downloading to a computer, but as the Canon DC210 does not have a USB connection the 'download' consists of taking the finalised DVD from the camcorder to the PC and working with it on the PC.
To finalise make sure you have the camcorder connected to the mains through the power adapter and the mains switched on before you start. Then switch on the camcorder and follow the instructions on page 61 of the user manual.
There is no need to transfer the DVD to a DVD-RW format to edit it.
Take your finalised DVD and place it in your PC DVD drive - you can use the operating system functions to transfer the DVD contents to a folder on the PC.
You'll need some commercially available software to edit the files you've transferred - a couple of suggestions are Magix, Adobe - there are many programs available.
Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
And good luck with the school project.
