Reply to BryanHadaway's Post: I guess I'll just read off to you what it says on the side of the camera?
It says DVD +RW/-RW/-R Compatible   DCR-DVD 105
Carl Zeiss Lens
Touch Panel LCD

It writes directly to a DVD +RW 8cm disc.
I need to make room on the disc and would like to erase some pics that aren't necessary.

Deleting Images is a different case for every Disc type (DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW).

You cannot delete a recorded image from this type of disc.

1.Slide the POWER switch to turn on your camcorder and press PLAY/EDIT.
2.Select tab or tab that includes the images you want to delete, then touch [EDIT].
3.Touch [DELETE].
4.Select the image to be deleted.
The selected scene is marked with a check. Press and hold the image on the LCD screen to confirm the image. Touch return to return to the previous screen.
5.Touch OK > [YES].
You cannot recover an image once you delete it.
To delete all still images off the disc at the same time
Touch [DELETE ALL] in step 3.

You can check or delete the last recorded image.
You cannot delete if:
You have removed the disc.
You have recorded new movies or still images after it.
1.Press the Trash icon during the review
2.Touch [YES].
You cannot recover the image once deleted.
If the image is grayed out you cannot delete it.
