Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Finalized a Sony DVD-RW in a Handycam and now it asks "Make the disc recordable? DVD menu will be deleted. Yes/No. Not sure what I want.



Answers :

Hi.

The answer you want here is no. If you choose yes the Handycam will erase the data on the DVD-RW and get it ready for you to record on again. Now the disk is finalized thats the end of the burning process and the disk is done.

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."

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. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!

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?

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute
