DCR-DVD305 - Annoying SONY disk message

I find it rather annoying that every time I turn my camera on, I get the message that SONY disks are recommended. Does anyone know a way to disable that message? It is annoying becuase you can't see what you are recording until the message disappears.

That gets rid of the message but yes it is annoying. Now tell why you got a DVD camcorder?

Thanks for that

I got a DVD camcorder basically because it allowed me to send disks to my relatives who dont live close. I have 4 kids and I never have the time to transfer the tape to my PC and then edit it and then burn a DVD. Forget it! Now I can tape a little hello message from the kids and send it off to grandma and grandpa right after they are done..

I know the quality isn't as good as some of the other cameras but I find it to be okay and the ease of use coupled with a good price I got on it made sense

I do agree...

For simple things such as what you do with it, a DVD camcorder may be acceptable.
