Roxio Creator Premier & Frustration

Question

I have a Hitachi DVD Cam, one of those that records on those mini disc's. Since my mac has a slot drive, I am trying on my windows (XP) system to import the video's and burn them to a normal sized disc. Not having any success. When I leave the mini disc in the cam and plug into the USB port, nothing happens. It's just not recognized by Roxio. If I insert the mini disc into the computer's disc drive, Roxio think's about it for quite a while, the drive makes some funny noses, then I get a message stating the one or more of the file's are not supported and that I MAY need additional software for playback, then the program shut's down. Any idea's are appreciated.

You need to finalize that miniDVD, before it can be read properly.

It has been finalized. If it were only that easy. Have tried with 2 different miniDVD's. Actually 3, one imported just fine, the other 2 will not. They are finalized, they were finalized in the Hitachi Camcorder

Put the disc, in your computer DVD drive, and copy the files to a folder on your hard drive. Then, if you want to edit the video, open VideoWave, browse to that folder, and bring in the .vob files, and do whatever editing you want. Save your project, and close VideoWave.

 

Open MyDVD, bring in that VideoWave file, by clicking on Add New Movie and browsing to that .dmsm file.

 

Make any menu changes you want, click on burn, and burn to a DVD or an image file (recommended).

 

If you burn to an image file, after the encoding is done, save your MyDVD file, then open Disc Copier, and burn your image (.iso) file to a DVD.

Not sure what you are asking with regards to different way's/settings you can record to a disc in the camera. I am using Maxell dics's, the one time use one's, 30 minutes record time. The disc that worked is the same t ype as the one's that will not

You can shoot to DVD-R or DVD -RAM. That DVD =Ram is going to cause difficulties. Do you know if you may have accidently shot two as RAM and one - the one that gave you no problems as a DVD-R.

 

"The camera shoots to 8cm (3-inch) DVD discs that hold 20-60 minutes worth of video, depending on the quality settings. The DZ-MV230A is compatible with two DVD media formats, DVD-RAM and DVD-R, which determines the camera's functions. For example, although this camera has 1.1 megapixel still capabilities, it will only work while recording on a DVD-RAM disc, as do the in-camera editing features.

 

If you want to share what you shoot, you use a write-once DVD-R disc, which can play back on PC computers with a DVD-ROM drive"

Grandpa Bruce:

 

Afraid I have not had much success. I did follow your directions, but didn't get too far. The first problem came when copying the files to a folder on my hard drive. I got a message stating " cannot copy VTS_01_1 data error (cyclic redundancy check). But I kept going just for kick's a giggles. I then opened VideoWave to bring in the files that were there. No luck, got a mesage stating one or more files can't be edited and have not been added. So, there are no files in VideoWave.

 

I am at a loss as to what to do. Seem's the only place I can view these disc's is on the camcorder itself, which is not real convenient. I'd do just about anything to get these transferred to a normal size disc and be able to copy them for others because they are of my daughter who passed away at the age of 18 about 5 years ago.

 

I just don't understand how they can be viewed w/o a problem in the camcorder, but that's the extent of it.

Do you have a Retail Copy of V9? If so look in tools for DVDInfo Pro, put a disc in the drive open DVDInfo Pro and click info icon at top. Does it say anything about your disc 'DVD Video'? Use DVDInfo Pro to check the disc for write errors, that's the CRC (cyclic redundancy check) icon at top.

Really can't answer your question, no clue how they were shot. They are over 5 years old at this point. Not even sure where on the camera I tell it what version to shoot on. These are the write-once dvd-r disc's we are talking about.

 

In addition to the DVD-R disc's we have been discussing up to this point, I also have video's on the larger, re-writeable DVD-RW's. Because they are re-writeable there is no option to finalize them from the camera and unless I can get one of my computer's to recognize the camcorder while connected via USB, I don't know how I will get these video's off the mini disc's. I thought this Roxio program would do it. My Mac/iphoto/idvd doesn't recognize the camera either. As soon as I get these video's onto a normal size disc, this camera is on E-Bay and will buy one that the Mac will be friendly with !!

You will never get capture to work with USB, especially if it's a digital one - that's a given

 

You really need a Firewire connection to do it

The message you got means your disc is bad, and that pretty much ends the story on the video on there. You may be able to view it on the camcorder, but it appears the disc is done.

 

That is why cdanteek wants you to post what you find out, about the disc, with DVDinfoPro. Unfortunately, you don't have a retail version of EMC 9. You have MyDVD Premier 9, which is not EMC 9 and does not have DVDinfoPro.

Have you tried capturing from the camcorder via Windows Movie Maker using a USB connection?

First; thanks to you all for trying to resolve this issue for me. I do appreciate it. I've just about given up and accepted the fact that when I want to view this, they will be viewed only in the camcorder, where they work fine.

 

I have tried the Window's Movie Maker Route, no luck. Apprently, .vob files are not supported.

 

What I am wondering now, is if I connect the camera directly to TV and play the video, why couldn't I buy one of those DVD recorders and also hook that up to the TV, then record the video as it is playing ??? Wonder if that would work...Any thoughts ??

Downloaded a 14 day trial version of DVDInfo Pro, and yes, there are all kind's of write errors. I suppose there is no way to correct them? I don't see anything in the program that lead's me to believe there is .

This might help recover some but not all. A free download to see if it will recover and pay to do the recovery. It is a complex program, I myself have found and recovered things on a disc I've worked on for days and never saw that data before!

That means CDDVDSpeed Disc Quality check won't work with your drive, lucky DVDinfo Pro did.

I've never seen speed show that before. Out of curiosity what name brand are the disc's, bought here in the US?

 

You have to move on and try the isobuster DVD recovery tool I posted, sorry. No one here can recover any data off your disc but you...

They are Maxell, yes, bought here in the good old U S OF A. I am messing around with the isobuster now, appear's complicated at the moment, if I can figure it out, I'll probably purchase it and hope for the best. Thanks again for your help.
