    I bought a Sony DCR-DVD703E to capture footage from a recent round the
    world trip with my family that took in some matches at the World Cup.
    Well we had a great time and gots some good footage, camera was working
    great using a Sony 60 min DVD-RW in VR mode.

    Anyway my son was using it in the car and was trying to record beyond
    the capacity of the disk, got an error message and that was it
    Recording Disabled message and we can no longer access any of the files
    on the disk apart from a single still shot!

    We are devestated because this is once in a lifetime suff on there and
    it is very weird because the disc was not removed when this all
    happened and the camera has continued to work perfectly since with
    other discs so nothing there.

    Does anyone have any tips about how I can recover the files from the
    disk as Sony Australia have been no help at all?

    Anything at all would be much appreciated.

  2. You might try using a DVD ripping program to grab the VOB files off the
    disk. It likely was not finalized, I'm guessing. Search
    for freeware or shareware ripping software.
