    Thank God, I thought I was going mad. I have spent hours trying to solve the same problem. I purchased this camcorder in the belief that it would be simple to use ! how wrong I was.



    I hope somebody is out there who can help.



    PLEASE.

The reason for this error is that there is a conflict between HD Writer and other software on your computer. I was trying to find a solution for weeks before Panasonic advised me to remove other DVD burning software on my computer. I therefore removed Pinnacle and DVD decrypter (which I believe was causing the problem), reinstalled HD Writer and then everything worked fine. Note however that the DVD-RW discs I had tried to use before were corrupted and couldn't be reformatted and therefore once you have removed the other software and reinstalled HD Writer, start again with new DVD-RW discs. Good Luck.

Please send finalize directions


To finalize a disc:
First make sure that you left enough space after recording to the disc. Press Stop or Disc-Menu (during playback). Select the first title with the Up arrow or Stop. Then press the Up arrow to get the Disc Information. Then press the right arrow to enter Settings For. Then use the up/down arrows to select Finalize disc and select OK to confirm.

This option will only be available for unfinalized discs that were recorded to by this DVD recorder. If the disc was created on another unit you may be able to finalize it with the Finalize feature in the main menu. (Tools (icon has a hammer and a wrench) > Features).

You can get the manual here: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=DVDR77/17&scy=us&slg=en . See page 82 (page 94 in the pdf).

I hope this helps.

WHAT DVD DISCS WILL PLAY ON THIS DVD PLAYER


Assuming you are not having an actual hardware problem with the DVD player or an incompatible format (e.g. HD video & non-HD player); you should know that when you write video to DVD-R or DVD+R discs, you have to 'finalize' the discs on the creating drive for them to be playable on a regular DVD player. (Note a finalized disc can no longer be written to. If the player can read DVD-Ram (and your creating drive can write to them), DVD-Ram discs do not need to be finalized.)

Hd writer 2.0E fro sx/sd


I had this same issue...I bet you're using DVD-R, am I correct?

Apparently you can't copy video from DVD-R to the HD Writer. Period. Just can't do it. (Would be nice if they mentioned this in the manual.)

You can only use DVD-RW and must format the disc to VR format, not Video format.

I'm using a program called Handbrake (free) which I think can convert your .vob files (from the Video_TS folder on your DVD) to quicktime files, or similar, so that you can actually do something with the video...

Best of luck, I'm really no expert, and I probably won't return to this page, so a reply to me is likely not going to be read by me...
