Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder
How to do initiation of a finalized Dvd in Camcorder DC301
After spending some time with Canon at 1-800-828-4040 I have found out that there is one small but crucial step missing in their instruction manual on Finalizing the disc. Take battery out and power the camera with the cord plugged into wall socket. Turn camera to the on position and let DVD normalize then when it stops move the on switch downward into the play position. With the viewing window upen you will see thumbnails of the pictures that are on the DVD and a small green light will come on opposite play on the camera. Push function and a menu will come on that says disc operations at the top AT THIS POINT PUSH THE JOYSTICK TO THE RIGHT and you will notice the light move from the right side of the viewing window to the center. Now with the joystick scroll downward until FINALIZE is highlighted even though it is in white, push inward on the set button on joystick and you will get a screen giving you information about how long it will take to finalize and it will ask you if you want to finalize yes or no. Choose yes and it will turn yellow or orangish and will start finalizing. You will also get a progress bar at the bottom as it finalizes. When it is finished finalizing you will note that FINALIZE in the menu has turned black. The one step about pushing the joystick to the right just as soon as you get the menu is crucial. Hope this will spare a lot of people a lot of frustration. I was almost ready to send mine back to the company or junk it.

You have to plug the camera into the wall charger in order to finalize. I was having the same problem. Once finalized, I transferred the disk to the PC. You need DVD decrypter software in order to view the videos on the disk. Canon does not supply this. Canon recommended that I use one of several free downloads. They said download "DVD Decrypter" which I downloaded. Type DVD Decrypter into Google search and you will find it. It will rip it and download it to your computer. I then viewed the video with Windows Media. It works fine.

I have Vista. I used a free download "DVD Decrypter" and it converted the files. I then just used Window's Media to view them.

Ok, Guest @ solution #1 and #3 solved this for me.
Step 1. remove battery pack.
Step 2. Plug in to outlet.
Step 3. Insert desired disc.
Step 4. Toggle down on the "mode" lever for "Play-back" mode.
Step 5. Press "function"
Step 6. Scroll to and select "menu"
Step 7. Scroll to and select "disc options"
Step 8. Scroll to and select "Finalize"
Step 9. Scroll to and select "Yes"
Follow prompts from there.
This worked for me.
Thank you all!!!
