Not able to finalise the Disk

Hi,

I have used the -rw dvd and I had tried following the guide lines for finalising the disk.

I have connected the power cable and inserted the disk.
I have selected the menu but I am not able to view the "finalise" option on the Disk operations menu.

Please help...

Just try this make sure you put it in playback mode and make sure its plugged in your adaptor.. I guess they don't want to risk running out of battery during finalization (may stop the disk)
put it in playback mode then presto the option comes up so make sure you put it in playback mode by pressing down on the on/off button.In my conclusion to finalize the disk you need 2 things: First make sure you are in the play mode and second plug in your power supply

hope this may help;

Format error when i finalise the disk


If a FORMAT ERROR message is displayed, then the inserted disc is not formatted or it is recorded in a different format not useable by the camcorder. If using a DVD-RW or DVD+RW, format the disc prior to use. Otherwise, use a different disc.

I have a samsung vp-dc171w mini dvd recorder. I was told at the time of purchase that the disc would replay in a dvd player but none of mine play it. Is there an adaptor or something needed for it to play...


If your using DVD-RW make sure you format it in video mode. Do your recordings then when you want play them back on a dvd player you have to finalise the disk in the camcorder first.
If you want to continue recording you will have to un finalise the disk.

Editing a DVD-R


I guess you read this on page 5 of the user manual.

DVDs initialised in VIDEO mode cannot be edited on the camcorder . However, they can be played on most DVD players and can be edited on a PC, but they must be finalised on the camcorder first.

Once finalised, there is no problem in downloading to a computer, but as the Canon DC210 does not have a USB connection the 'download' consists of taking the finalised DVD from the camcorder to the PC and working with it on the PC.

To finalise make sure you have the camcorder connected to the mains through the power adapter and the mains switched on before you start. Then switch on the camcorder and follow the instructions on page 61 of the user manual.

There is no need to transfer the DVD to a DVD-RW format to edit it.

Take your finalised DVD and place it in your PC DVD drive - you can use the operating system functions to transfer the DVD contents to a folder on the PC.

You'll need some commercially available software to edit the files you've transferred - a couple of suggestions are Magix, Adobe - there are many programs available.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !

And good luck with the school project.

Dvd to prints


You can either
1. Transfer the still pictures from the camcorder to the PC, and then, either
1.1 use your PC software to print the pictures, or
1.2 use an online photo processing lab to print the pictures for you.
OR
2. Take the disc from the camcorder to a local photo printing shop and ask them to print the pictures you want printed.

But first ...
before you can transfer pictures or video from your Canon DC210 to your PC you need to finalise the disc in the camcorder.

You also need to make sure that the DVD drive on your PC is capable of reading a DVD-R, DVD-R DL or DVD-RW format as these are the only disk formats that the DC210 will handle. Not all PC DVD drives can read these formats.

To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then, switch on the camera, put it into playback mode, Press 'Func.', select main menu, select 'disk operations', select 'finalise'. Don't move or shake the camera or switch it off whilst the finalising step is underway - this could cause problems.

Once finalising is complete, take it out of the camcorder and then follow steps 1.1, 1.2 or 2 above.

Good Luck.

Cant transfer footage from Canon DC201 onto computer (and eventually internet) Do I need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer?


You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.

One of two things has gone wrong
1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely
2. You have not finalised the disk.

You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.

Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.

Mini DvD-RW problem


You've recorded your video and you're ready to view it on a PC.

Now you need to finalise the disk before you can see it on the PC, otherwise the PC will not be able to read it.

To finalise the disk, connect your camera to the power adapter, plug the adapter into a wall socket, and switch on the wall socket, then switch on the camera.

To get to the finalise step. switch on the camera, press FUNC (on the top left side of the camera), move the joystick down to get to MENU, press SET on the joystick, move the joystick down to get to DISC OPERATIONS, then select FINALIZE, using the SET on the joystick. Finalising will now start.

Make sure you do not move the camcorder or switch off the wall adapter during finalisation - this could cause problems.
