20 Most Recent Canon DC100 DVD Camcorder Questions & Answers

I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

This camcorder only takes DVD-R and DVD-RW, it will not work with the +R discs. I've used Maxell and Fujifilm discs and they both worked fine. You have to make sure the camcorder is plugged in the wall when initializing or else it won't initialize.

I think that you should have used VR format before you started recording. Only then does will the edit portion show on screen In recorded in Video
format , then the editing screen does not appear as editing with camera is not allowed. MAybe trying converting from video to VR format. Regards, Melvin

This just happened to our DC100 Canon yesterday during my son's 3rd bday party. I went to put in a new disc and then all that happened. Did you ever find out what caused it or if it can be fixed?
