Question about Canon DC100 DVD Camcorder

Finalzing my disc

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. Any deas? I have the same problem with my camera DC100. Please hepl us. You can give us the contact of canon camera manufactuer? We'll try to contact them. Norene

Re: Finalzing my disc

Remove battery for 8 hours, this decharges internal capacitors, remember to be in playback mode, not record mode when finalsing a disc, keep plugged in to external power supply

You can only finalize a disc in the dc100 with the power adapter on. (page 59 instruction manual)

How to finalize a disc on a hitachi dz mv550

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 before, how to finalize disc in this model.
Use ac adapter to see disc finalize option in menu. If you use battery, you will not see finalize option there.

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.

Ok, Guest @ solution #1 and #3 solved this for me.
Step 1. remove battery pack.
Step 2. Plug in to outlet.
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"
Step 7. Scroll to and select "disc options"
Step 8. Scroll to and select "Finalize"
Step 9. Scroll to and select "Yes"
Follow prompts from there.
This worked for me.
