Sony Handycam DCR-DVD108 - Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Optical Zoom 40x

My Sony Handycam DCR-DVD108 - Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Optical Zoom 40x started to give this message:

"Movie Recording Disabled"

It recorded many times before without a problem, but today it started to refuse to record with this message. I didn't disabled or don't know how to.

I have a disc in the camera - Same disc I've used before. I turned it off and on to see if the problem goes away! I removed and re-insert the disc, no change! I remove and re-attached the battery, no change.

I've had it since August of 2007 without a problem! Until today!

What can I do to enable the recording function?

    My Sony Handycam has same problem. Two disks I was recording on show "Movie Recording Disabled". Cannot finalize or view scenes in camcorder. When I try to import using the Picture Motion Browser, I get message "Cannot import because this disk is not supported." Using Sony Handycam mini-disks DVD+RW. If I reformat, I'll lose all video recordings. Then I'll also be afraid to use the disks or the camcorder because this same problem could occur again without any real solution.

Guys hope you all found the solution like me who had same issue. if you noticed, it says about the aspect ratio and that means the formated disc aspect ratio is not compatible with the aspect ratio your camera need. so re-formating the dvd with right aspect ratio solved the problem quickly and we have peace.

Can I use Telephoto converter on my handycam DCR-dvd108 to shoot picture of object on moon surface? If so, what kind and feature Please?


You can't as the lens is fixed and I wouldn't have thought you needed it. It has 40 optical and 2000x digital. That is better than a home telescope. You just need a good tripod.

Specs

Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens; 40x optical/2000x digital zoom

You may be confused regarding 'conversion lenses' by the text on page 64 of the manual regarding NightShot Mode, but that is infra red shooting and not like a DSLR lens converter?

My sony handycam carl zeiss says movie recording disabled. What do I do to enable it?


Most probably it is an issue with the disc. If the disc is corrupted, it will display the error message to prevent spoiling the lens of the Camcorder. Please use a different disc and it should resolve the issue. If the issue persists with different discs, it may require service..
However, I suggest that you reset the Camcorder by pressing the Reset button behind the LCD panel (Near to the USB port) on the Camcorder) Please make sure that you have turned ON the Camcorder while pressing the reset button.
