Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a mini DVD-RW disc that indicates that the recordable area is full when I put it in my Sony Handycam DCR-DVD305. However, it does show any "frames." It beeps when I try to finalize or unfinalize the disc. I have my dad's retirement party on this disc and do not want to loose this. Please help!!


Answers :

Have u tried playing this disk on your home computer? it will play there in any DVD or DVD-RW drive, if it shows no information when used in the PC drive the information is gone, somehow you may have inadvertently formatted or erased the disk.
Usually disc's that are'nt finalized will only play in the recorder that there made in unless you finalize them. When your done with your dvd finalize it. I assume your using dvd-r discs. If you can use dvd+r and booktype to dvd-rom. Now you'll enjoy those dvd's in alot more players then just the one your making your dvd's in. However DVD-r when finalized will work in 99% of players almost. Media can screw you up too. Don't matter sometimes a few bad ones in the batch. But your also saying that none of the disc's that you did'nt finalized are reading. Well right there tells you there is'nt a problem. If there was you would'nt be reading them.

I apparently over-filled a 3.5" DVD-R disc with my Handycam Model 405 as the "finalized" program did not complete the process. Now I cannot access the valuable video files nor can I "unfinalize" so that I can delete several clips to make room. Is there any way I can retrieve the files through Nero, Picture Package, Microsoft or some other DVD player program?

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera.

Hi, I'm an amateur with cameras & I just bought this camera - canon powershot sx130 IS and I just tried it out.

When recording two vhs tapes back to back on one disk, it will not finalize. But, will finalize if one tape is recorded. Mind you now each tape only has one half an hour recording on them, and the disk is capable one hour of recording time. I'm using dvd-r disks, and have tried everything I could think of, and have used many disks to try and solve this problem.


The disc requires some space for the finalizing process. Two half-hour tapes take up all the room on the disc and leave nothing for the process. You'll need to record at a lower speed. ... Digital Cameras
