Question about Canon DC100 DVD Camcorder
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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)

Tips for a great answer:
You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or
complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.
Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on
other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.
Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make
editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you
Press SYSTEM MENU. Press
; to select in the top left
corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.
9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,
9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc
appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the
"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may
take a few minutes.
When finalization is complete, the Index
picture screen will reappear.
You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or
edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.
A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.
