Thread: Mini DVD problem!

    Default Mini DVD problem!

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a Sony Handycam that records on mini DVD (8cm).
    Yesterday I was recording and after a while when I had turned the camcorder on and of between recording the mini DVD disc didnít work any more and the camera asked if I wanted to format the mini DVD disk....

    I didnít format the disk, so the data should still be on it, but I cant see the data on the disk, is there any thing I can do to get the data back?
    best regards

    Tummas

    P.S. I was recording in: -DVD VR format....

    Have you tried putting the disc in your pc to see if there are any files there ?

    Default ?

    yes I have tried that, but I can't see any files, I gues it's because my pc is to old or becouse the cd is not finelized...

    are there any software where you can finelize your mini dvd disks?

    You need to finalize it in the camcorder so when you put the disc into the dvd drive on your computer the files will become visible.

    yes I know, but when I put the cd in the camcorder drive, it just ask's if I want to format it, before I start to record on it, and I cant get into the menu to finalize it :(

    is there any other way to finalize the cd?

    if I put a new cd in the camcorder it works fine...

    In your first post you talk about recording onto dvd's and in your last post you talk about recording onto cd's, which one are you having the problem with, just to be clear? I have never used a mini dvd camcorder so I don't know if they can record onto ordinary 650 or 700mb cd's.
