    Did you finalize it when you were done recording it on your camcorder?

It could be. Try Thats a good DVD program. If you have an ATI video card in your computer, you might have a DVD for their player as well. Either way both programs will provide you with a DVD decoder for playback as well.

If you didn't finalize the DVD after you recorded it, that error can happen as well. It can by fixed by reinserting it back into the DVD Camcorder and finalizing it.

    What format is the file in?

  • Tim Babcock

    If you try it as a windows media file, it could be emailed that way.

    The other thing you can do is create a You Tube account, download it that way and have the people you wanted to send it to see it by an e-mail invite. Videos on You Tube have to be broken up into 10 minute lengths.

    If you have Windows Movie Maker in your computer, you can edit the video and add a music track and save it as a windows media file.

    It might be a different format that Movie Maker doesn't recognize. Intervideo has a movie maker program that can recognize different video formats. They have a trial package available.

Sony Camcorders that record to DVD's require you to Finalise the DVD before you can use it on anything else.

If you have the Manual for your Camera look at the section which explains how to Finalise the DVD.

The finalise function is accessed via the Camera's setup menu.

Let me know how you get on. Regards,

If you have finalized the disk, then there is no way to add tracks or sessions to this BRD.

You need to use a new blue ray disk, and to add original recordings to the new disk.

Viewing Discs on Samsung VP-DC161

RE; smasung DC 161(i) pal and possibly other models The reason why there is no disc message when there is definitely a disc is installed is because the disc programming has malfunctioned, Its because of Samsungs poor design, after powering up the camcorder and inserting a disc, the disc will load and a green flashing light appears for a minute or two while loading if the Samsung camcorder is switched off while loading the camcorder will essentailly self destruct and their is no remedy, however that does not mean the Samsung is completely useless,the camcorder can record on a 4 GB SDHC(max 4GB) card using the switch from disc to memory card

Cannot finalize

Just to clarify - when you say try to finalize the disc on the DVD recorder, do you mean the DVD camcorder i.e. the VDR D100? if not and you mean an actual DVD recorder then this is where your problem lies, as the disc can only be finalized in the VDR D100 unit itself. this could be the reason behind the poor quality when you watch the clip using windows media player.

If i've got the above wrong, and you were talking about finalization problems on the unit itself all along then the following might help: how full is the disc you are finalizing? if it is pretty full then delete one or two unwanted clips and try finalizing again (this worked for me when i had this problem).
if the disc is not really full then it gets trickier. let me know if it works
