SOURCE: Format Error

First option would be to attempt to read the disk in another DVD player, for example on a PC. If that succeeds then transferring the data can be done via the PC. Another thing to try is to reset your Camcorder - refer to the manual to locate the switch and then try again. If neither works then re-formatting is probably the only answer. Always format the disks in the camcorder - not elsewhere.Good luck.

Format error when i finalise the disk


If a FORMAT ERROR message is displayed, then the inserted disc is not formatted or it is recorded in a different format not useable by the camcorder. If using a DVD-RW or DVD+RW, format the disc prior to use. Otherwise, use a different disc.

Audio error


Did you drag the video and audio files.

There is no reason to format a dvd-rw, if you want to use it again
just delete the files on the disk, if you format it, you could cause it to stop working or not accept files.

You format a hard drive to change format, or install a OS.

You don't use format on CD or DVD's just to erace them.

Nero also has an erase option.

Hi

1) Make sure the discs you are using fit the correct format specified by your Unit . For example - if you are using DVD-R's that you have burned yourself and the unit does not support this format you will get this error.

2) Dirty laser lense causing the unit to have problems in reading the disk. Use a cleaning Disk like this one to see if the error resolves.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-DVD-Laser-Cleaning-Disc/dp/B00005UPDF

If the error remains and you feel confident to do so you can open the unit and look for the glass laser lense - usually blue in color under the DVD clamp. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens in order to clean it.

Allow to dry naturally for a couple of minutes before re-assembling the cover on the unit.

3) Try a CD in the unit - if the unit reads CDs and not DVDs - this is an indicator of a faulty or misaligned drive mechaninsm within the unit itself. In this case the drive unit will require service attention and need to be replaced.

Obviously you should check that any disks you are using are clean and free from scratches.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

I have a HANDYCAM SONY DCR-DVD 106, and I keep getting the following message error - "Disc error. Unsupported format - 13:023, with regard to a mini MEMOREX DVD-R.


Disc error. Unsupported format means that ur camera does not support the format of this disc it might not support DVD-R or DVD-RW and supports the DVD+R and +RW try the other format disc and let me know if it resolved , check the manual it is stated on the box or manual which format it supports, if it does not solve ur problem try some other brand instead of MEMOREX try sony,hp,fuji,philips and see actually these sony cameras they are sometimes locked by the manufacturer to only use the original discs for monopoly sony acts like that in every product

pls do rate me if i fixya problem

regards

Sony DCR DVD101 Format Error


I had the same problem, but I didn't have any valueable data on the DVD-RW (which was a Sony brand disc, go figure...). So, I backed up all the videos on the disc, tried to format the disc to get it ready to be able to be used again, and got the whole "Access Error" when I was formatting the disc. I tried both the VR and Video format options, the Video option came back with teh "Access Error" while the VR option came back with "Format Error". I put the disc into my DVD burner in my computer and was going to try and format it manually. But, as the disc popped up in My Computer and I right-clicked on the disc icon, there were no options to format the disc, which is unusual. I tried it in a laptop that's about a year old (versus the other computer which was about 4 years old), and as I right-clicked on the disc, an option was entitled "Erase this CD-RW". Obviously this was not a CD-RW, but I tried it anyways, and bam, after about half a minute, the mini DVD-RW was formatted! After that, I put it in the Handycam DCR DVD101 drive, formatted it using the Video setting (my preference), and now it works.

So, moral of the story is...try and format the disc manually on a DVD burning enabled computer. If it doesn't work, try a newer computer. But that's all I have, hope this helps!
