    I found the manual online, but can't find where to finalize the disk. How do I finalize the disk?

    I found out that you have to plug in the camcorder into the ac power cord (only this method works) & press the disc navigation button. Then press the menu button (***not the quick menu***) & scroll down to 3 spaces to where you will see (on the left display ) what looks like a sideways oval. Then move the cursor to the right to where it reads: Finalize Disc. Then press ok. THen move over to Yes. DO NOT LET THE CAMCORDER TURN OFF! Refer to page 135 on your manual.

Ihave a DVD cam hitachi DZ-MV730A and I don't have the software for convert mini DVD to regular DVD what can I do?

The software is built into the camera. Go to disc navigation then once thumbnails are created press menu, scroll down to the disc icon, select finalize and confirm yes or no. The mini disc is now playable in most DVD machines.

DZ-MV730A Cam - unable to finalize, locks up creating thumbnails

Sorry this isn't the ultimate solution especially if the disc is full - I'm still trying to retrieve data from a disc that locks up creating thumbnails although it will play on the camcorder to a point. If there is room left on the disc, try recording briefly then press disc navigation button. A couple of times I was able to get past the lockup this way.

I had the same problem. What I did on my Hitachi DVDCam was to click the "Stop" button to clear all keystrokes. Then, click "Menu". The camera might say "Creating Thumbnails" for a minute but then it will stop and display a mock menu for your mini dvd. Then click "Menu" and the toolbar should pop up. With the arrow keys, scroll down. You should see a menu that says "Finalize DVD" click this. For a small dvd, it will take around 13 min. to finalize.

Hi!! My husband just sat down and finally figured this out,

You have to use disc navigation, then wait for the thumbnails to show up and then push menu and scroll down three times to the disc, and then choose finallize and then tell it yes. You do have to have it plugged into the a/c adapter tho in order to do this for some reason.

Hope this helps,

Have a Creative Day!!!
