Question about RCA DRC8295N DVD Recorder/VCR
According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:
RECORDING: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN USE FOR RECORDING
DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.
It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.
PLAYBACK: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN PLAY
DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized).
CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW)
that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs.
Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.
VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs.
Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.
(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)
I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.
I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)
I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.

• Only audio CD-R/RW discs can be recorded with this unit. "Use Audio CD" will be displayed when a disc other than one
for use with audio such as a CD-R/RW disc for use with a personal computer or another type of disc is loaded. (See "Discs that Can Be Used with this Unit" on Page 5.)
• CD-R discs can be recorded to only once. The recorded information cannot be erased.
• The recorded information of CD-RW discs can be erased. When this disc has been finalized, erase after the finalization removal operation has been performed. (See "Cancellation of CD-RW disc finalizing" on Page 28.)
• Recording mistakes made with CD-R discs cannot be erased; therefore, it is recommended that a CD-RW disc be used until you are accustomed to the recording operation.
If you desire 74-minute blank disc just Google "cd-r audio 74". The unit will also use 800MB 80-minute CD's.

That was caused be a "glitch" when the camera was writing to the disk. The reason you are unable to read it on your computer the video file was not closed down properly. This could have happened for two reasons I can think of.
The good news is that, Yes everything you recorded is still on your disk but it will take people with special talents and software to perform recovery. Look (local, or search the internet) for "Video data recovery service" Make sure that they do "VIDEO Recovery" Sorry I don't have one to recommend to you. I hope this helps you.
