Question about Sony DVDirect VRD-MC3 DVD Recorder

Failed to record

Used sony dvd+rw dual layer and memorex dvd-r single Using DV in from my canon elura 100 to dv in on the sony The machine begins to record then after 10 minutes it just stops and the screen displays "failed to record" "remove disc." I thought that the buffer amount of video was too great so I reedited my video tape and shortened the tape to about 40 minutes. The same thing happened. I don't want to keep buying discs by trial and error, or is there any other things to try?

    Was able to burn DVDs. Now fails after 35 mins. Tried using different media and brands: no help. Seem to have been able to get a full recording by turning *off* autochapter feature and *then* creating a single chapter point 2-3 mins into the burn. Go figure

    "Failed to record. Remove the disc." I have a Sony Digital HandyCam I am trying to use with the DVDirect, trying to burn onto DVD+RW discs, and I consistently get the Failed to Record error. I have tried taking off autochapter, PC Use / Not Use, quality settings, etc. Is there something I am missing? Figured the two devices ought to be compatible, both being Sony. Thanks - if I find a solution independently, I will try to come back to answer my own question. Thanks

Need to connect both the 3-prong AV adapter *and* the firewire cord. The firewire connect alone does not work, and the 3-prong AV cord alone does not work. But connect both cords to the two devices, and it seems to work. 15 minutes and counting... Hope this helps someone.

You are on the right track. Every "multi-format" DVD recorder, DVD burner and DVD-RW drive I have ever owned has had problems with one type of media or another. This is because the discs all have their own patented dye mixtures, and each is a little bit different.

I have problems using Memorex DVD-R discs on my Toshiba DVD recorder. The only drive I can get good results with Memorex DVD-R's is on my Memorex DVD drive.

For DVD-R media, I have had the best success with TDK DVD-R's.So far, they have worked on all my devices.

You may want to try DVD+R media. I use Memorex Lightscribe DVD+R and for dual layer recording, I use Ativa DVD+R DL discs, both of which have worked very well and I rarely have to throw one away.

It takes allot longer, but on my PC I always use the "verify" function to make sure I get a good copy.

Export movie from an older TRV68 to computer

Hi,

I purchased a canon elura 100. The 100 has a AV -> DV converter. This allow you to tunnel your Sony via a 3.5mm 4-pole mini AV to mini AV camcorder A/V cable to your computer.

Sony (via AV out) -> (AV) Canon -> PC/Mac (DV) via fire wire cable
