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.
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.
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.

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. .
Summary: I bout this camcorder a few months ago and about the time you get to the end of a mini dvd it stops recording and shows a disk error. And you lose all your info. This is now the 2nd time it has done this. I am taking it back to the store and getting my money back and getting something different.
Summary: I've had my camcorder for a year and a half and I love it, I have no complaints about it. If your looking for a camcorder I would recommend this one, mine has been a good on, it's with stood my little boy who is now 3yrs old, never sits still and loves to record and take pictures of his little...
