I was given a 'Canon DC210' for free by my dad, His old video recorder before he found he had no use for it anymore. It records directly to Mini DVD, which for me is fine, I have a fair few lying around, and the quality is surprisingly good.
My problem starts when trying to get the files I record on to my PC, If i am still In the porcess of using a disk, this is the most annoying thing that can happen, For a start it is juttery, and slow, (after download a Codec pack it plays fine, but the numbers in VLC are all Wrong, Such as '41 seconds out of 30'. I can access the files, and sometimes, copy them across on to my PC, but When trying to remove the disk to use again this happens ;
A small Speech bubble appears at the bottom and says 'Preparing to eject. Please wait while the session is closed so the disk can be used on other computers.'
The computer without my permission changes the CD's format from '-RW VR' to '-RW VR F'
Is there a way to stop my computer from changing the format of the disks so I may contunue using them even after dragging some footage off. I don't want to always loose the footage on the DVD's as I am forced to reformat them before they work again. Is there a way to stop windows from Auto changing the DVD's format?
