What does drive error mean when finalizing?

Do this: Get a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol. The swab should NOT be dripping, just a little moist. Take the Q-Tip and clean the laser 'eye' using small circles and start from the center and work out to the edge. Then give the finalization another try. If that doesn't work, try another disc and see if it will finalize (after recording something - anything). If the unit still does not finalize - it's time to either go shopping for new, or get the unit repaired. Here's a link to Sony's repair:

Many video clips recorded by GZ-MG130 were stored in my old laptop (windows XP) and played well in with windows media player. 1)I have now transferred them to my new laptop ...

Hi Rajeeva.

To start try downloading updated codecs for Windows Media player, and install them onto the new laptop.

Use this link to download updated :: Download latest audio codecs

If that is not enough also update Windows Media Player on the new laptop. Link is below.

Windows Media Player 11.

Updating codecs should fix the problem already.

There is no need to hook camcorder with computer through USB, all is required to Finalize recorded DVD in camcorder and put that disc in computer to copy files for further editing etc.
Finalized disc in camcorder will be recognized in any other dvd player or dvd-rom.
Finalize disc option is available in camcorder menu.

The finalize dvd won't play on my dvd player

Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

To ctinajero: Make sure your computer has MPEG2 codec to play it in your computer. You can find it here:

Try that and see if it plays.

To dickandsandy:
Your computer won't allow you to move the file (your video) while windows has it open and playing the video. Stop the playback exit the program your playing it with.
Go to Start, then choose Computer and find the DVD listed in your drives. Double click the drive and a folder will open with your video listed there. Simply highlight it, right click your mouse and choose copy. Open another folder on your C drive (make a new one if you want to) and paste it in the new folder. Done!

Let me know if either of you has any problems.

I am unable to connect it to my PC for transfereing pictures.

I don't know if the usb cord is a good power source for it. That wire may provide data service only but no power to the camcorder.

Can the dc210 finalize dvd-R

Thanks making sure I was in play mode with the adapter plugged in worked. The trick was remembering what play mode was--that's where you can see the scenes on the playback screen, not the screen you see when you are looking to record something.
