If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

I get memory card error when trying access my SD card


do you mean you switched to a NEW sd card or to a DIFFERENT one you had laying around? sometimes if you put a card into a different device, say maybe a laptop, and you don't go to 'safely remove disc' on the computer it will wreck your sd card when you remove it. make sure you try a new card from a package before you do anything else-if that doesn't work your camera has a problem.

I have Picture Package. Isn't working. Says I


One thing to try is change your screensaver to a Windows default style, Stars, Windows Logo etc. Macromedia had a problem with older screensavers. Give it a shot. Good luck.

After burning home movies on dvd - they won't play on dvd player or computer --- says disk error. Software says disc was successfully copied


Be sure you purchased compatible discs for your DVD player, ie. DVD +R or -R. Some players won't support both.

No disc read on dc100


There are only 4 possible solutions,

1. Dirty or faulty discs, but as you've tried different discs this doesn't seem likely.

2. Condensation has developed in the camcorder, leave it in a dry indoor temperatured place for a couple of hours and try again.

3. Dirty lens won't let the laser read the disc. Look for lens cleaning camcorderkit in a store.

4. Manufacturing error

Hope this will help you.

Disk error 13:02


SONY C:13:01 ERROR
1. cleaning the laser lens with isopropilic alcohol and q-tip
2. Try the reset button on the bottom of the camera. Tilt your camera and look below the LCD Display Backlight button on the bottom edge of the curved portion of the camera. You will need a paperclip or tip of a ball point pen to push the recessed little button. Place the camera on a level surface and try again. We find that the camera is very sensitive to tilting, as it gets older.
3. Make sure you format format at was FAT not fat32
4. All you need to do is "Quick format" the disk with the CAMERA rather than the memry stick plugged into the computer drive.
5. For sony error c:1301 using mini cd's: there is a program that recovers data from cd's that works with disk that have this error. It called "cdroller" Homepage is : www.cdroller.com
6. just take the memory stick off and re-insert it lot of times.. just keep doing it.

Can't transfer recorded video to CD


This is a problem with the type of drives that are supported by the Picture Package software (assuming this is what you are using to transfer the video). This camcorder came with Picture package 1.0 which does not support quite a few drives (the entire list is available at www.ppackage.com). I think your drive will also fall under the same list of unsupported drives.
