Sony Handycam

  soldier boy 18:10 03 Nov 2006

While on holiday recently I borrowed my son's Handycam. In it was a DVD-RW and he had done some videoing. When the disk was full I bought DVD+RW and continued to record our hols!

I now find that while the DVD+RW disks can easilyt be read both by my PC and DVD player, the DVD-RW cannot.
When I put them in the PC I get an error message saying disk format not recognised! The DVD player simply says "no disk".

Anyone any ideas how I might salvage the footage from this disk? By the way, both types of disk play very well on the camcorder and there does not appear to be any corruption!

You could transfer the contents of the DVD-RW via the CamCorder to your HDD then burn a DVD+R or +RW from there.

Of course you could buy a cheapie dvd player that accepts DVD-R/RW discs (about £20?)
