If the camera is still not working with DVD-R and DVD-RW discs you may have to have it repaired. Try resetting it first (the reset button is behind the battery) and that doesn't work you may have to have it repaired. I had the same problem and I took my camera to an electronics shop and they found that my CCD sensor is not working so it has to be replaced. The total cost for the repair is $140, ($50 for parts and $90 for labor)

SOURCE: no disc read on dc100

There are only 4 possible solutions,

1. Dirty or faulty discs, but as you've tried different discs this doesn't seem likely.

2. Condensation has developed in the camcorder, leave it in a dry indoor temperatured place for a couple of hours and try again.

3. Dirty lens won't let the laser read the disc. Look for lens cleaning camcorderkit in a store.

4. Manufacturing error

Hope this will help you.

I just bought new discs for my Canon DC100. The


It's possible that, for some reason, the disks aren't compatible. It can almost drive you crazy trying to figure out why. To find out for sure if this is the case, try some new Panasonic discs, with the same specifications as the old ones that worked, and see if they work. If they don't work, you're probably having a dvr issue with the laser lens or related parts within the camera. There are many issues with dvrs that develop over time, requiring replacement parts and service. In those cases, it's usually better to get a replacement camcorder. The new HDD camcorders are immune from a lot of problems inherent with dvr and tape recorders.

Finalize the disc


depends what type of disc-rw's won't highlight sometimes because they don't always need to be finalized to play-insert the disc if r in another brand and see if you can finalize-go to bb or circuit and ask them if you can stick it in display and see if it comes up-if never proably was done already-also try different dvd players

Pop a dvd r/rw in it reply no disc


I just got an estimate back from the electronics shop that is going to fix the camera. According to them the CCD optical sensor is not working so it has to be replaced. The total cost to fix the camera is appx $140 ($50 for parts and $90 for labor) If you try resetting the camera first (the reset button is behind the battery) and it doesn't work, this could possibly be your problem.

Initializing DVD-RW Discs


This camcorder only takes DVD-R and DVD-RW, it will not work with the +R discs. I've used Maxell and Fujifilm discs and they both worked fine. You have to make sure the camcorder is plugged in the wall when initializing or else it won't initialize.

No disc


some DVD's aren't compatable with the DC100 they must be the DVD minus and moisture can also cause this but Call Cannon Support 800-828-4040 they have a 1 year factory warranty & will repair without charge if it is a defect
