In order to Finalize you have to plug in the power adapter.
It took me forever to figure it out.

The DC310 can only Finalise a disc if it is plugged in, or if the battery is at EXACTLY 100% charge.

I believe it's a safeguard, against possibly having the finalisation interrupted by a loss of power due to a less than fully-charged battery. It may be that this process, once begun, cannot be interrupted withoutlosing all data on the disk ...?
