Summary: I do not know why some people are having, or have had problems with this Camcorder. I have never had a single error message. I simply put in a CD and hit the record button. It may have been a problem with a batch that was defective much like the pre-orders of new game consoles. Mine has always worked perfectly.
Summary: This camera is not the best. However, it has a sleek look and does it's job. I've never gotten the disk error before, but in my opinion, its better to just stick with the SD card. Make sure you jump for at least a class 6 card with HD capabilities, otherwise, the SD quality is awful. Personally, if you want a cheep cam, I'd go with a Flip.
Summary: I bought this camcorder overa year now and it works great. I never use the disk part because the max capacity is 1.2 Gb, while for less physical space i can us an HCSD card up to 16 Gb. And i figure the disk will use more power to operate. I gave it 4 stars because in darker scenarios it needs a light for work properly.
Summary: This is the best - the shipment was suberb everything was just perfect and it was the best thing i had gotten my dad in a long while....he absolutely loves it and it works so well. even after only a yr it is a permanent fixture in my house.
Summary: very very good tks ggggggggggggggggooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
Summary: I HAVE THE SAME COMPLAINTS AS THE OTHER REVIEWS I'VE READ. WE'VE TAPED SO MANY IMPORTANT EVENTS ONLY TO HAVE SOME SORT OF ERROR COME UP ON THE SCREEN WHILE WE'RE TRYING TO FINALIZE THE DVD. DRIVES ME CRAZY!! ONCE THAT HAPPENS, DISC IS GARBAGE AND MEMORIES ARE LOST FOREVER. ANOTHER PROBLEM WE HAVE IS THE "DISC ERROR" COMING UP ON A BRAND NEW DISC. WE'VE HAD THE CAMERA FOR 6 MONTHS NOW AND TRIED DIFFERENT THINGS TO FIX THE PROBLEMS. NOTHING HELPS.
Summary: Every time I load a new disc, after a few minutes, the "write error" comes up. I've tried to clean the camcorder using Dust Off and the same thing happens. I've no idea what to do, I thought of smashing it on a rock and forget about it. .
