HOW TO FINALIZE A DISC - Panasonic Palmcorder VDR-M50 DVD Camcorder

    I certainly have the same problem, and yes I have done all of the recommended stuff. The problem seems to be when you use a Panasonic DVD Ram 2.8 GB disk. The option to finalize does not come up on the screen. If you look at the manual you will see from the process route (looks like a family tree diagram) that when using one of these disks the finalize option is not there. So if any of you experts out there can help you will be helping thousands of people like me. I am about to throw the darn thingin the trash and buy a canon cam. Please help
    Thanks a million Muffy

    Sorry dear Sir.
    Of course I was using the AC power when I finalized the disk or tried to. I promise you the option does not appear unless you use another lesser recording time disk. ie 30 mins. It also shows the absence of this option in the manual, when using DVD ram disk. A FU**ing Huge rip off. If I had the funds I would have taken these people to court for fraud.
    It just is not there. I hold myself pretty computer savy and work a lot with video.I have since bought a Samsung camera and use a flash card system. !00 % improvement and works with all my video processing tools Power director, Adobe premier 7 etc etc. The other camera went under the hammer. I would not even have sold this on ebay. It is now in a hundred little bits glued to a board in my study. This is a warning to all my other tech equipment what will happen to them when they **** me off. PS I did reply to you before. I do not know what happened.
    Best regards,
    Muffy

Hi,

I replied you in premium post as well. here is with details...

Be sure to use the AC adapter to power the DVD Video Camera when
finalizing a DVD-R disc. Finalization cannot be executed using a battery pack. Now you will see finalize option in menu and can select it to finalize disc.

Good luck.

Need to know how to finalize recorded disc so that it can be played in regular dvd player


You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or

complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.

Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on

other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.

Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make

editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you

finalize it.

1



Press SYSTEM MENU. Press

; to select in the top left

corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.

2



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,

then press



:.

3



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc

appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the

Recorder.

4



Press OK.

"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may

take a few minutes.


When finalization is complete, the Index

picture screen will reappear.

You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or

edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.

A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.

I have a Sony-MC6 and created a DVD disc that will not finalize.


I recently got my MC6 and have not had this problem. We are using Sony R+ DVD's. After recording it asks if you want to finalize it- select yes. It goes through its gyrations and then ejects. What kind of DVD's are you using?

Disk wont finalize samsung sc-dx103


Samsung support just told me that there has to be some space left on the disc to finalize it. In other words if you fill the disc with too much video, the disc won't be able to write the necassary info on the disc to finalize it. Support told me you needed 10MB to finalize. He also told me to leave 7- 10 minutes of free space which is ridiculous because the disc only records 20 minutes. I have complained to Samsung about this ommission from the manual and that the camcorder should know to leave enough space to finalize the disc.>

Finalize the disc


depends what type of disc-rw's won't highlight sometimes because they don't always need to be finalized to play-insert the disc if r in another brand and see if you can finalize-go to bb or circuit and ask them if you can stick it in display and see if it comes up-if never proably was done already-also try different dvd players
