There are tiny fingers in the cam, that read the disks. They can become slightly oxidized, over time, with condensation. You can try to spray some electrical contact clean on them, then get inside with a qtip or soft (lint free if you have it) cloth on a plastic knife, or anything that will fit inside to aid in the cleaning. Otherwise, it can be a bad solder trace on the card holder, or a problem with the microprocessor. The only way to know for sure if your camcorder has the problem, is to verify the disks in another machine, or camera. Your camcorder will have to be serviced, if cleaning can't help it.
Here's one more thought. Read the 2nd review on this webpage, it explains something that might help you:
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I'm installing a biostar a78ldm2s and everything turns on but I keep getting a read disk error on the hard drives that I try to use. I've tried 5 different hard drives and get the same result.

Hello here you can download a manual:

By entering the right mainboard number.

Try to set the bios to factory settings.Load default settings.
And set the boot order: first boot device:dvd, second, the harddrive.
If you are using a IDE drive make sure its set as master.
A sata drive does not have that function.
Make sure the windows disk is clean and without scratces.

Here is a youtube video that shows you how:

Good luck

Can't do backups because dvd-cd can't find a blank disk. Who can I format?

Drives like some brands/types of DVD, but will never work with some others. Whenever I buy DVDs, I always stick with exactly what worked before with that computer.

Also, if you have accidentally written on the DVDs you could spend days trying to use them to no avail. I always pull the fifth one in the stack, just in case the first few were put back after being accidentally written to.

Look up your DVD in device manager so you know what media it takes. Buy some new (slightly different (brand/type) from the ones you are trying now.

I have a cam but when i open it, it said your caam is not connected

Make sure you have the driver installed.

These drivers can be found most of the time on the manufacturers website.

However i've you can't find these driver, you can always use a Driver Update Utility.

DriverEasy is free & good.

Hitachi mini dvd cam will not eject disc, will not read, will not write, will not record. Also cannot read mini disc on Windows Vista, is there a driver for either of these issues?

This has happened to me many times. The disk has an error (they alway do).

1: Turn it off.
2: Attatch power connection.
3: Hold down eject button.
4: It should say: "DISK ACCESS"
5: It may take a long time, but put it down in this state and leave it for as long as it may take.
6: Later on, it will eject the disk.
7: Discard of this disk, it's nothing but trouble.

CD and DVD disks use a different set of optics for each type of operation. Some units have a different laser for the different format types.

The fault could be mechanical alignment, calibration, or a failure in the signal and or processor path. These types of faults are impossible to guess at.

If the unit is under warranty, contact the dealer to find out how to get it serviced. If out of warranty it may not be feasible to service.
