    I have a Panasonic VDR-D50 handy cam. Today when I tried to use it, video was recorded and everything was fine. Now I am facing two WEIRD problems:

    1. Camcoder says Disc is full. But when I insert that small disc in my pc to get my records, the disc is blank. I can't find anything. Again, no recording can be performed without the disc (so where are the videos being saved????). Tried in different PC's.

    2. I am trying to replace the disc with the SD Card so that I can write in SD card instead of disc. But I found no option to use the SD Card. I searched the menus of the camcoder.

    Can you please help?

    sounds like the DISC has been corrupted somehow , if you cannot read in a couple of DVD players

    what type of DVD is it - Panasonic use a special Disk called a DVD RAM and I think that can only be used on Panasonic players - I have about 8 of these and used on my Panasonic - but no other device can read them
    OR
    have you used a DVD-RW

    Yes, It's a DVD-RW 1.4 GB. Named as 'Mitshubishi Kagaku Media'. So what kind of disc can I use? You said that videos can be played only in Panasonic players, if so, then how can I transfer the videos to my computer for editing and viewing purpose (for example, using the videos as mp4, mkv, avi etc) ???

    Oh, one thing I forgot. The disc isn't corrupted. Because when the camcoder is loaded with the disc, we can play the videos in the camcoder

    NO ,I said
    As you have used a DVD-RW then any DVD Player should be able to read it

    I suspect it has been corrupted - have you tried another DVD-RW in the machine at all - make sure it can actually record on the disk and you can read on the PC
