Before you can transfer pictures or video from your Canon DC210 to your PC you need to finalise the disc in the camcorder.

You also need to make sure that the DVD drive on your PC is capable of reading a DVD-R, DVD-R DL or DVD-RW format as these are the only disk formats that the DC210 will handle. Not all PC DVD drives can read these formats.

To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then, switch on the camera, put it into playback mode, Press 'Func.', select main menu, select 'disk operations', select 'finalise'. Don't move or shake the camera or switch it off whilst the finalising step is underway - this could cause problems.

Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.

Good Luck.

I installed the game, and when I put the disc in to play it, the main menu isn't even shown. The screen that says "Her" with the magnifying glass doesn't do anything, it just freezes. I can...

Here are a couple of ideas- I have played many of the Nancy Drew games, so hopefully something here will help you. First thing I would try is to not put the disc in to play. I think that you do not need the disc to actually be in the computer on this game. Some of the games will load the game twice if you have the disc in and then you can't play it at all. Another words that computer tries to load the disc and the game already installed, and it doesn't work well. So you might want to try that first. Also there is the uninstall and reinstall to try next. Did you check that you disc drive is compatible? If you are playing on an older computer, check that you have a dvd drive-newer computers do. Also do you have enough ram and a fast enough processor? If you look on the package, it will tell you the game requirements, another words what type of set up you need in order to run the game. I would guess that you do have the right requirements, and one of the first two suggestions will fix it. Good luck!

I downloaded a movie on my computer. I burnt the disc and when I put it in the dvd player it says cannot play disc. I have a sony DVD Player. Any thoughts?

The exact model of DVD player matters. Not all models can play a Computer burned disc.
There are several types of DVD
A factory type DVD in DVD format
A burned movie in MPEG format
a burned disc in DivX format.
Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.

Disc spins, then " Type of disc can not be played" message

it means the format of the type of cd u put in cannot be played by the system.

try playing the disc it on another player, if it does the same, it means the disc cannot be played. some players dont play mp3 format, blu ray, and some others, so you can check the kind of disc you want to play on it.

I cant get candyland to play, i installed it twice

Ok go to your control panel and go to the add or remove programs may have to look hard for it...if you find it and you see it on the computer but its still not allowing her to play on candyland and there should be a option above it to uninstall...once uninstalled restart the computer and start from scratch put the discs in and do what it prompts you to do eject the disc once the download is finished and then put the disc back in the computer...there should be a AUTO play..... if it doesnt come up right away go to my computer and hit the drive that has her cd in it and that should make it pop up then

Why won't the DVD play on my computer? Help, please?

Put it back in the recorder you made it with and make sure it is finalized. Also make sure your DVD drive in your computer is compatable with that format.

Sony dvd handycam finalize problem

If your discs are rewritable, you could try putting your discs in your computer. Try opening the folders and try to open all the files. Some of the files may be your videos. If it opens your video player and plays your videos, wait until it plays everything to make sure that all your data were recorded in the disc. Copy everything in your computer and remove your disc. Try playing it again and if it works, then it's already ok. When you are planning to use it again, make sure that you format everything in the disc.

Recorded a DVD on computer but will not play on DVD player

dvd players play only certain kinds of discs and formats. Older ones played -R's, most newer ones play everything. You have to look in manual, or on box before you buy player. If it won't play -R,+R, -RW,and +RW's I pass it by. Find out if your player is limited to certain discs. Some will play VCD and some will not. Some will play DIVX and some will not etc. Stick to the discs and formats your particular player is compatible with.
