    from my hitachi bx35e dvd cam recorder after recording some participant i cannot play this to any pc or dvd player


  • sterre Apr 17, 2009

    Hello there, here is someone with the same problem. I have done several recordings with this cam and i use sony dvd+rw discs, i have 4 dvd players, on my sony home cinema set it won"t play (older type) i have a phillips portable dvd system for my kids for in the car, it will play, on the computer it will play, and at my brothers house it won"t play, so it depends on the brand and capability of the player used. I recorded many concerts with the cam, but i always copyd them by putting it into the computer and then burn them straight on to a normal size dvd, but since the 8 cm discs only is 30 min each side, i have to burn 4 dvdees for one concert from 2 hours. So i have 4 seperate dvdees each time i record a concert, now the trick is how to put them behind each other to make one disc from those 4, greetings from the netherlands and good luck........

One of the modes allows you to edit video on the camera and only works with certain types of dvd's. sorry, i can't remember which is which. there should be a table in the manual that lists what each mode is capable of. it's confusing, i know!

How do I find the delete option on my hitachi camcorder?


Hi! The solution to your problem is Three fold.

First make sure that your Camcorder is in the Disc Navigation mode to be able delete your required scene. When the camcorder is in the play back mode the delete scene won't appear.

The second situation is to check if your scene is not locked because if it is locked you are not able to delete it.
Supposing that your scene is not locked then check what type of DVD disc you have. The discs labelled DVD Ram, DVD+RW, and the Card can be deleted. The DVD-RW can be deleted only when in VR mode and not the VF mode. Other types of discs like the DVD R can not be deleted.

Another way of deleting a scene after it has been recorded on a disc that's not deletable is to transfer the recorded scene to a computer disc and then edit it off.

I CAN NOT TRANSFER FROM THE CAM TO COMPUTER I HAVE WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL AND MY COMPUTER SAYS THAT THE FORMAT ON DVD IS NOT SUPPORTED


Hi,

There are three ways of transferring the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer. One is by using the Picture Motion Browser Software, other by using the A/V, USB cable after finalizing the disc in the Camcorder and finally using the DVD-ROM Drive in the Computer after finalizing the disc. If you're trying to transfer using the 2nd and 3rd option, the the disc in the Camcorder should be finalized.

Also make sure that the disc is formatted in DVD-Video mode instead of DVD-VR mode. VR mode recorded discs can only be played back using a VR Compatible Software/Player or in the same Camcorder. DVD-Video mode recording will help you in playing the discs in all the Players and DVD Viewing Software.

I always recommend transferring the videos to the Computer using the supplied PMB Software.

Please check transferring steps and information from the link given below:

I just used my Sony minidv camcorder yesterday with a mini dvd +R disc and it worked fine. Turned it off while not in use and went to use it again later and it reads disc error. This is the second disc...


VIDEO mode You can play back the disc on most of DVD players if you finalize it.
VR mode You can edit, delete pictures, or divide movies on your camcorder However, the disc can be played back only on DVD players that support VR mode when you finalize it.

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data


I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

Format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

Changing a -vr format


You're right - only DVDs initialised in VR mode can be edited on the camcorder. Those initialised in VIDEO mode cannot be edited on the camcorder, but can be played on most DVD players and can be edited on a PC.

The good news is, if you are using a DVD-RW disc you can change the mode by reinitialising it to be in VIDEO mode, but you will lose all the previous content during initialisation. DVD-R discs cannot be initialised.

See this Fixya solution for details on how to initialise a disc.

To Junie1939 - No, it's not possible to change a DVD from 'plus' format to 'minus' format, sorry - you have to go buy 'minus' format DVDs, or change the DVD reader on your PC. Remember the Canon DC210 only takes 'minus' format DVDs.

Good Luck.

Dvd question


DVD-RWs can be initialised in either VIDEO mode or in VR mode. In your case you have initialised the disc in VR mode - hence the .VRO file extension.

VR mode allows you to edit the disc on the camcorder and is a newer format than VIDEO mode, which is the format used in most films, and which most DVD players 'understand'. VIDEO format cannot be edited on the camcorder, and can be edited on a PC. A VIDEO mode disc has to be finalised before you can use it on a PC.

Use VIDEO mode if you want to upload your video to a PC.

Mini dvd playback


Two problems here.

To JOA629 - You may possibly have initialised the disc in VR mode by mistake. VR mode discs will not play on a PC. Are you re-initialising the disc between when it works and when it doesn't ? If you're using VIDEO mode, are you finalising the disc on the camcorder before using it on the PC ?

To dewynn729 - you have intialised the disc in VR mode, which is a newer format than VIDEO mode. VR mode discs will produce .VRO file extension. Record your video on a disc initialised in VIDEO mode, finalise the disc on the camcorder (don't forget to plug the camcorder into the power adapter, and switch both on), then read the disc on a PC.

Delete unwanted scenes


The FORM that you have to be on has to be VR not VIDEO. But the bad thing is on VR you cant finalize and play it as a DVD only on the computer, unlike what you can do on VIDEO.
