Many have recovered the files from said media with that and then used other tools to make a new video. Sadly you are not alone with noticing issues with the DVD camcorders. My advice is to avoid them.
Hello everybody ! I am looking for help regarding a problem that I have.
A friend of mine has used a Memorex DVD-R to make some movies on his Sony DCR-DVD 108 Camcorder and finalized the disk. It really IS finalized. The problem is that no computer dvd drive can read the disk (and I have used more than 5 different computers). It just tells me that the disk is empty and I can only see the movies on the camcorder. How can I still copy the movies on the HDD, but without using the analog output and then recompression? Nobody at Compusa, Bestbuy or Frys could help me.
