Question about Canon Digital Cameras

2 Answers

Hello, I bought a Canon DC210 camcorder and the appropriate DVD-RW discs. The videos and pictures when seen on the camera were great but I can't get the DVDs to play in my computer.The manual says to "finalize" the discs but, even the National Geographic photographers on the trip couldn't figure out how to do this. Please help! Thank you, JaneMiller

Have you tried another media player on the computer to run the disk like VLC, or a DIVX player, or the player that came with the CD of the camera when you initally purchased it. it can be a codec issue with the WMP.

about the Finalization, it is a step the recorder will ask before you remove the dvd right?

    for disk finalization, first you have to plug in the camcorder using the charger then you have to make sure that the play light is on,you do this by pushing the on and off switch down toward mode then you will see the green play light come on,next push the joystick in when you go to finalize,then make sure that the word yes is highlighted in orange push set and the finalization starts.



    hope this helps...

Simply right click on the track itself and select send to/DVD-RW or CR-RW depending on the type Compact disc drive you have. Then you will see a notification, "you files to be written to CD." Simply click on it or go to your Compact disc drive on My Computer and click “write these files to CD.” Then follow the screen instructions. IT is that simple. All you need to do is press and release the display button until the screen displays. Usually Canon Powershot cameras have 3 display modes:- colour, black & white, blank. Your camera is set to blank that is why you cannot see any image/screen displays no image. Just press and release the display button until the screen displays. That should do it.

I used a mini DVD-RW to record something with my camcorder. Then took the disc out ahd tried to put it in my computer. The computer reformatted th disc. Now I can't find the recordings I made. Have I lost...


If the DVD-RW was re-formatted, everything is gone. There may be a possibility to find a program to recover them, a search on the net may find it, not sure.

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video...


are you doing a finalize on your -r discs? if not finalized won't play in anything but camcorder-dvd can be finalized at any time-you should not lose your footage--rw can sometimes play in players w/out being finalized can also delete scenes and reuse-look for finalize in your playback menus

Dc210 finalize disk


I'm not sure if you'd already tried this...but I hope this helps.

The camcorder can only finalize a disc if it is powered by the AC power adapter....according to p.61 of the users manual, the (finalize) operation cannot be started if the camcorder is powered only with the battery pack.
