Burning to DVD

Hi there,

I have had my camcorder since Aug of 2007, and am having problems trying to burn it to DVD.  The first set of DVD's I purchased, when I tried to burn it through the software provided, a certain type would only appear in the drop down menu.  So back to the store to buy the kind that is there (DVD+RW) and then I try to burn it.  Through the program when I try to burn it, it says successful at the end, however when I try to put it in my 2 different dvd players, one says disc error, the other says this type of disc cannot be played.  I am frustrated because I am following the instuctions and still cannot do it and I bought this model because of the supposed simplicity of making dvd's.  I can no longer use my camcorder because the hard drive is full and I don't want to erase any of it because it is of our first child.  I have downloaded most of it onto the computer but still do not want to erase it incase my computer crashes.  I need help because now my son is 10 months and I am missings lots of cute moments due to no camcorder.  If you can help thanks in advance!

Do you know if the DVD player that you are using reads DVR+RW? If you have the book on the DVD player it should tell you what formats it reads.

I WAS able to make the dvd but it will on play on my laptop not on any other computers nor on any dvd devices


Check the settings on your burning software. You need to "finalize" the disks that you are burning. The session (the disk burning time) has to be finalized, otherwise, it will only play on your computer (as you have already discovered). The setting has to be made prior to burning the disk and once it is set, it will stay that way by default. You don't need to set it every time.

The disks you already burned can be copied to a new disk, but just make sure to finalize them for them to play on other devices. I have over 1600 DVD's and I ran into the same problem when I started burning DVD's. Frustrating to say the least, but Fixya.com and other sites weren't around back when I started, so I wasted quite a few disks back in the day. Now they're coasters for our drinks. LOL
I hope this helps and good luck!

I need to take what i recorded and put on my computer to burn on a disk...how?


Since the camcorder records on Mini DVD+/-R and RW, and SD/MMC cards, just eject the media from the camcorder and insert it into the appropriate drive on your computer. Open the burning software of your choice (which you may or may not already own) and follow the directions for burning the files with that software. If the disks are DVD RW or SD/MMC delete the files after burning is complete. Even though the manual states that it will work with DVD-R, the camcorder seems to have issues finalizing these particular formats, so I recommend using DVD+R and DVD+RW. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote appropriately and leave a comment.
