    My Model Number is VDR-D100

    I am unable to finalize a disc. I get an error "saying that "disc cannot be finalized" so I tried to connect the camcorder to my computer and still no luck. I can see the video on the camara just can't do anything with it. HELP

  • yparra Oct 08, 2008

    Its DVD-RW

  • yparra Oct 08, 2008

    Neither happened. The camcorder was resting on the counter so no shaking and I had it plug into the the wall during the finalizing phase.

  • yparra Oct 08, 2008

    This is s new dvd and the camara has finalized other dvds. I did not try doing it today but I can try that.

    May I know what DVD you are using in camera?

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Oct 08, 2008

    Ok, there are 2 possibilities of error in finalizing disc...
    1= If your camera becomes hot or is shaken strongly or impacted while finalizing, the finalization will fail and the disc may become unplayable on other devices like dvd player or pc etc.
    2= If the power supply stops while finalizing, the finalization will fail and the disc may become unplayable on other devices even if disc repair is carried out.
    Please let me know either above two happened?

    did same DVD-RW disc used before and finalized it successfully?
    Because apparently there is nothing wrong with camera. Do you have another RW disc just to check camera finalize function.

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Oct 08, 2008

    Ok, please finalize another dvd in camera to make sure that camera is fine and ok.
    Regarding this particular disc, it depends on its brand and quality. This disc can be tested in another camera that how it performs in finalization there.

You can puschase the NERO program that sometimes works with most disks. The program costs around 75 dollars. Or you can Simply go to a store that sells this model camera or one that uses the disc and simply ask to try out one of the models and finalize it there, I was trying to explain a few other options in our live session before you aborted it after waiting on me to look up the possible solutions for over half an hour. I do apologise that you are unhappy about the live chat support fees.

Good news.. you should be able to put the disc back in to the device that you recorded in on... and go to the menu to do the finalize... in fact, you may be able to add more to you disc prior to the finalize process if you want...
once it's finalized you should be able to view on other equipment... your files should all be there as well.

Let me know how you do!

Finalizing dvd

I had the same problem for about an hour. I finally got it, though not sure how. I think it had something to do with the green button on the on/off switch. I pressed it down while at the same time pushing the on/off button down to "mode". When I went back to finalize it yet again, I got the option to select "Yes". Hooray!

Video not found after finalizing disc on Samsung SC-DC164 DVD Camcorder

Put it back in the Camera and see if it tells you the disc is finalized when it tries to format the disc. If it does then you know for sure it is finalized..
