Recording Error I have tried to burn to DVD several videos I have on my computer and at about 50% download I get an error code 0040-0012-803F-40000025. The weird part is I am using the same DVD type and have been able to record other videos to DVD.Any idea?

    ihave the same problem but altering the speed to x4 did not solve the problem. stopped on 49% again. tried it on x2.4 and burnt a very small clip, but when I tried several in one go, it again stopped and failed at 49%. This solution is NOT a solution i'm afraid.

I had the same problem tonight. My camera is the DCR-DVD610. When I bought my camera in February I made sure I could burn DVDs on my laptop and it worked no problem. This really irritated me. After many attempts I thought about plugging my camera in to my laptop and opening the PMB program and try again. I only did one video to see if it worked AND IT DID! I didn't change any settings. Hope it works for you!

    Well it worked that one time. I tried to copy the other videos to another disk and got the same error. I've wasted to many disks trying to fix this. Seems to be a known problem-you'd think Sony would address this somehow.

    I tried again today. I went and bought DVD-RW disks (was using DVD R before. The only thing I did differently was I disconnected my internet connection and shut off my antivirus. Everything I wanted to transfer to dvd did. I think it's hit/miss with settings on the computer.

An eror occured whwn burning disc Error code

Not sure if this will help but make sure you do not have two dvd-authoring programs on your computer, this might be causing the error you are seeing. There could be an issue with the media you are burning to, sometimes you have to experiment and find discs that work well with your burner. Burn speed may also be an issue, some discs say that you can burn at 4x speed, when in fact that disc may only be able to accomodate 2x - so try reducing the authoring speed to half the maximum the disc says.
I looked on the GoCyberlink website and was not able to see that error code listed in their support pages. Another possibility though not as likely, you could have a damaged operating system or there is a problem with your dvd burner. Wish I could help more.

Error code 2881

I found this problem only when I tried to use a RW disk. The camera will not use a rewritable disk. I reformated the disk in my computer but it still would not work in the camera.
