Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Dropped camera - RW Disk thrown out - Some recordings are "gone"

I dropped my camera (power off) and somehow the RW dvd disk was thrown out, obviously without the proper eject procedure.
The drop was not hard and the camcorder is OK, but:
When I put the RW dvd disk back in, the camcorder could only see the first 4 recordings.
My guess is that I had taken out the disk sometime after these first recordings and before the "lost" ones.
In order to avoid any more damage I did not try to finalize the disk, but without finalizing I can not get to read it on a PC, where I could probably use some data retrieval software.

Is there a way to make the camcorder see the "lost" recordings or retrieve them on a PC?

Thanks a lot
Chris

    I have the same problem with a DVD-R and now can't see any of the recordings. Given that the DVD is a write once, I assume whatever I had recorded is still in there. How do I get it out though? Any repair SW out there? Thx.

A substantial percentage of my Memorex 3.5 "CDs won't finalize, and when I subsequently try to review the photos on the camera, it tells me there are no files on it. Nothing will download to the computer via the USB either.
There is a software program that always saves me when I get careless and fill the disk to full. It''s called CD Roller. It''s called CD Roller. good luck please mark the post with a fixya

Hard disk tiking when power up.


Hi,

Some times you don't know if your hard drive is working or not. Your external hard disk might drop on the ground, or your desktop/laptop hard drive might not be booting. Which ever the case maybe, here is how to find out the condition of your hard disk:

Put your ear close to your hard disk, if you hear your hard disk make a crackling noise, be prepared to buy another hard disk because such hard disk is damaged and cannot be fixed. Also note that it is difficult to recover files from such hard drive.

But if you don't hear a crackling sound, use your hand(s) to feel the drive, if it vibrates, it means the hard disk is in good condition.

What damages external hard drive most times is if you don't eject (safely remove) it from your computer, when it drops on the ground or hits any hard object etc

If your external hard disk stops working, firstly, check if the hard disk inside the case is in good condition by checking for crackling sounds and vibration. Once you observe that the hard disk is in good condition, this means the hard drive case is defective/the cause of the problem. Get another drive case and your drive will work again without loosing any file/data on it.

For desktop/laptop hard drive maintenance, make sure you always shut down your computer properly, don't remove the CPU's power cord while the computer is turned on. To be on a safer side, always use UPS (uninterrupted power supply) for your desktop computer.

Also, when using your laptop, makes sure its fixed at a position. Avoid any shake as the hard disk might shift from its normal position in the process.

Good luck.

Page 4-62 of the Owners Manual for my 2006 Quest has this procedure for a stuck DVD:

1. Record the radio presets
2. Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery for five minutes
3. Reconnect the negative battery terminal
4. Check to see if the jammed DVD has been ejected. If it has not, try to eject the DVD by pushing the eject button.
5. If the disc cannot be ejected see your Nissan dealer for further assistance
6. Re-program the radio presets

I have used this procedure on two occasions, and it works.

The Owners Manual also says that playing DVD-R and -RW disk might cause the player to player to malfunction.

Good Luck!

Hi,
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.

HI,
Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )

Cannot eject finalized disc


Try turnin the camera to the side where gravity will help pop open the disc and be careful not be keeping it close with your own hand. Its a thin cover and you can accidently be holding it close without knowing.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.

OK YOUR DVD DRIVE HAS A LENS PROBLEM
BRING A DVD CLEANER DISK AND ADD LENS CLEANING FLUID TO THE CD S READING SURFACE AND INSERT THE DISK TO THE DRIVE AND WAIT FOR 1 MINUTE THEN EJECT AND REPEAT THE PROCEDURE WITHOUT LENS CLEANING FLUID
AND OF COURSE THE CD SHOULD BE DRIED OFF BEFORE YU INSERT IT TO THE DVD ROM
