What other DVD recorders will finalize my Insignia DVD's?
My Insignia DVD recorder is toast. I have many DVD's that I had been adding to as I went along, but are now left unfinalized. Where can I go or what can I rent or buy to finalize my discs? Will any Insignia recorder do the job? I don't want to waste my money ordering something that won't work.

After recording a DVD in a DVD recorder you will need to finalize the disk. You should be able to put it in the original recorder and at least be able to watch the video.
If you are able to watch the video while you are recording then you should be able to record what you are watching. If you cannot see the video when it is sourced through the DVD recorder, then you need to adjust the input.

Canon DC210...To finalize the disk, you first probably want to have the AC adapter plugged in even if your camera does not require it in order to access the finalize menu option, as the process can be quite lengthy and use battery power -wouldn't want to run out in the middle of the operation....THEN....Make sure you are in VIEW mode -not record mode...THEN...Press the FUNC button on the side of the camera -you should then notice the FINALIZE option -among others -navigate to the actual finalize command using the joystick, then press it down and let it work its magic - try not to move it until it is finished. After it is finished -it can be removed and will be recognized by a dvd player, recorder or drive that is compatible with this type of disk in the first place, Apparently, this camcorder records video to the .VRO file type -so be sure any video editor/converter/player software on your computer recognizes this file type.
