I am trying to finalize a disc and I can see the Finalize option within the menu but cannot select it.
I'm wondering if I did something wrong during the DVD initialization process that has caused this. The users manual doesn't have a troubleshooting section for this problem - only directions on how to finalize.
I have tried Finalzing with the camcorder plugged in and this still does not work.
I have the same problem with my camera DC100.

To finalize the disk:
Select MENU --> then select: DISC OPERATIONS
then select: FINALIZE
then select: YES ... to go back to MENU
During the disk finalization, a progress bar is displayed. Close the MENU only AFTER the screen display returns to the DISC OPERATIONS menu
Hi, Need to provide power from ac charger of camera so disc finalize option will appear to finalize disc. Powering camcorder with battery wont give you Finalize option so use ac charger to get Finalize menu. Thanks.
After you have recorded all the information that you would like on your disc, the process is simple, just go to the menu and pic the finalize option under the disc utilities feature. I have found that some ram disc's that come with these camcorders will not finalize so if you are using a ram disc and when you do go to the finalize feature you will see that the feature is grayed out and you cant select it. That is a good indication that the disc cannot be finalized. I hope this helps
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.

Step 3. Insert desired disc.
Step 4. Toggle down on the "mode" lever for "Play-back" mode.
Step 5. Press "function"
Step 6. Scroll to and select "menu"
