Panasonic DVD RAM Finalize disc. The DVD issue I encountered on my Panasonic VDR-D100 - I recorded a video, finalized it, but the disk is not readable for some reason. I could not access files when I placed the disk back in the recorder. I received the DVD today and was able to view the contents.
Data Recovery Services provided the quick, affordable, and professional services I needed to recover a sentimental family interview I thought I had lost on a corrupted DVD. I contacted Data Recovery Services and received a response with a very reasonable estimate within 24-hours. I agreed to the quote, shipped off my disk, and hoped for the best. Within a few days I received an email from the firm stating that they had received my shipment. A few hours later I received another email stating that my data had been recovered. A few hours after that I was informed that my data was coming back home to me in the US. Overall, great experience, and great communication. Thank you!!.

I had a Sony DCR-SR37-E. The camera was new - while trying to play back the first videos I did not understand the manuals instructions and pressed a lot of control buttons all the thumbnail images vanished - I seem to have deleted the video without meaning to. Thank you for dealing with my problem so promptly..
The DVD disc was from a Sony Handycam DCR-DVD406E. Video had been recorded to the disk some time ago. Now when the disc is in the camera it shows nothing there, but the footage was there last time I looked. A magazine was doing an article and was waiting for the footage! We needed video converting to Quick Time format not mpegs so that the video editor can work with them.

JVC Mini DVD-RW 2.8GB recorded a friends wedding on a Sony DVD HandyCam, using a double-sided JVC DVD-RW disc.

The side with the error will not play on anything other that the camera. It also won't let me finalise the disc, and recording is not permitted. Apex, you are a genius!.
