How does one transfer the video or 'still pictures' from the Canon DC210 Camcorder onto their PC? Overall, it has some nice features like the zoom, but I can't seem to download the video or still pictures onto my PC.

    Hello Lee, thank you for trying but you evade to explain how one can actually retrieve the videos and photos.



    However, to help others, I've discovered that one can is able to download the "photos", whether in VR (VRO) or Video mode.



    One cannot download the actual video, however. For this, a certain software is needed. For a few extra bucks, I personally purchased "Magix Movie Edit Pro 12". I'm surprised that Canon didn't think of adding a 'software' along with their Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder. They would have profited more.



    Bottom line: One can't 'retrieve' the videos. One can only retrieve the 'photos'.

    Note: If some are interested in purchasing a small software, make certain that your Camcorder mode is set to 'VIDEO', as this is the only way the movie can actually be retrieved onto one's PC.

    For the GUEST that asked, "How do u finalize the disk?".



    Make sure that your Camcorder is set in PLAY mode. This can be achieved by sliding your "ON" button down, on the Canon DC210.

    This will bring you to another screen where it will be written "Original". You'll also be able to see a list of any movies you've taken or pics.



    Once there, then click on your "FUNCTION" button. Go to where it's written: "Finalize".



    Note: (Don't take the hair off your head. I didn't make the Camcorder. Canon did.)

    I've discovered that I couldn't "Finalize" in "VIDEO" mode UNTIL the disc was "Initialized", which meant I had to switch over to "VR" mode in order to "Finalize".



    The fun part, is that when you "Initialize", this ERASES all the movies you've taken in "VIDEO" mode.



    So, choose wisely before. Canon really messed up on this Camcorder, sad to say.

    For the "GUEST" that asked, "How do u finalize the disk?".



    My apologies in my prior answer. Forget that comment. The real solution is this:



    You have to plug in the AC adapter to finalize a disc. It won't "finalize" on the battery alone.

    I cannot finalize my miniDVD's as the option is not offered. When I go to "Function" and scroll down to "Menu" then "Disc operations" all I get is "Disc info" and "Disc initialise".

    I purchased Pixela's ImageMixer Mini DVD Dubbing 8-12 software but it will not do anything until the disc is finalised and just keeps showing the depressing message "This data format not supported"

    Any ideas????

All you should have to do is finalize the disc. Put it in your DVD drive and select the scenes and photos. you need to have DVD playback software to play the disc also if its a DUAL layer disc you have to make sure the drive in your PC can play DL.
Enjoy,
Lee

How does one transfer videos and stills onto cd/dvd and/or a pc?


I find the best way is with your own computer. Using a system like iMovie you can hook up your camera, import the footage and from there burn it onto a CD/DVD. Hope that helps.

you can't do that, you need converting software such as, Adobe Premiere or Pinnacle or something similar that will allow you to download the vob and make your own movie to burn onto a larger dvd.

Dvd to prints


You can either
1. Transfer the still pictures from the camcorder to the PC, and then, either
1.1 use your PC software to print the pictures, or
1.2 use an online photo processing lab to print the pictures for you.
OR
2. Take the disc from the camcorder to a local photo printing shop and ask them to print the pictures you want printed.

But first ...
before you can transfer pictures or video from your Canon DC210 to your PC you need to finalise the disc in the camcorder.

You also need to make sure that the DVD drive on your PC is capable of reading a DVD-R, DVD-R DL or DVD-RW format as these are the only disk formats that the DC210 will handle. Not all PC DVD drives can read these formats.

To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then, switch on the camera, put it into playback mode, Press 'Func.', select main menu, select 'disk operations', select 'finalise'. Don't move or shake the camera or switch it off whilst the finalising step is underway - this could cause problems.

Once finalising is complete, take it out of the camcorder and then follow steps 1.1, 1.2 or 2 above.

Good Luck.

How to download to computer


Hi there,
After you have finished shooting, you need to finalise the disk. Then the disk can be transferred to your PC for editing - use PC Shrink- ie remove all those unwanted shots. If you do not have the manual it can be found here:

Transfer from my canon dc210 to my pc


If you can play the DVD disc on your computer you will be able to transfer footage and edit it.

Put the DVD disc into your PC's DVD drive, then

1. Select 'start'
2.
Select 'My Computer'
3.
Find your PC's DVD drive in the display of devices shown, right click on it, then left click on 'Explore' in the drop down list.
4. Copy all the files you see shown with the 'Explore' option to a folder on your hard drive.

You can now use the software you normally use to edit the files you've just transfered to your hard drive.
