Sony DCR DVD 108 camcorder "movie recording disabled" message

Hi,
I have a Sony DCR DVD 108 camcorder. Today I turned it on and I cannot record or view my videos on my disk. It says "Movie Recording Disabled" but I'm not even able to see what I previously recorded on the disk. What do I do?

guys hope you all found the solution like me who had same issue. if you noticed, it says about the aspect ratio and that means the formated disc aspect ratio is not compatible with the aspect ratio your camera need. so re-formating the dvd with right aspect ratio solved the problem quickly and we have peace.

try to configure it on settings of your camcorder it must change the settings or maybe your inserting a wrong external cartridge. hope that helps!

I have the same problem.  If you have taken the disk out of the re-corder, then you can no longer finalize the disk...and you will potentially lose the data on the disk.  Their only solution was to take it to a professional media service and see if they could recover it...what a joke...at no point in the manual does it indicate that you cannot remove your disk or face the potential of losing your recording...I lost the recordings of the birth of my son...I will never forgive that...

SOURCE: DCR-DVD108 Problem

It's the disc not the camera......I purchased a 3 pack of Sony DVD-R discs. I put the first disc in and it recorded once. The next time I tried to record I got the message "movie recording disabled". After calling Sony, searching online, resetting the camera and reading through the manual I replaced the disc with another from the 3 pack and it is recording just fine. I read that recording straight to DVD has many problems, and I believe this is one of them. SONY SUCKS!!!!!

You have to "close session" on the disk before it will play anywhere else but the camera. Same goes for a CD or DVD you make on your PC. It will play on your PC ok but not on any other player

Sony Handycam says movie recording disabled. How did this happen and how do I undo it?


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.

Movie recording disabled


it's either you finalized a disk or your memory stick is full. if possible delete recordings and or photos in your memory stick to enable recording, or put a blank disc..once a disc is finalized it cannot be used to record on the cam but could still be viewed on the cam by selecting the media format,
