    Once I plugged it in then I was able to Select/Highlight it and finalize disk.

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.

Thank you all!!!

PLUGGING IN THE ADAPTER WORKED!!!

WOOHOO!

I guess they don't want to risk running out of battery during finalisation (may kill the disk)

Thanks "Guest" owe you one..

I found that I had to use the viewfinder in order to get the disk to finalize. Using the screen didn't work -- I kept pressing 'finalize' but nothing happened. Then I remembered reading somewhere that you have to close the screen and use the viewfinder, which I did. Voila! It worked (finally!).

No solution.  Same problem.  There seems to be a problem lurking with the Canon DC210 in regard to finalizing.  (It was plugged in.)

Posted on Oct 31, 2007

Remove battery, plug in elect, finalize.

Posted on May 29, 2008

In order to finalise disk first plug ur camera then put it in "P" mode if it is on auto and don't shake the camera

Posted on Jan 10, 2008

Make sure you pt it in playback mode and make sure its plugged in i had same problem it didnt give me the finalize option untill i magically put it in playback mode then presto the option comes up so make sure you put it in playback mode by pressing down on the on/off button

Hi,

Are you using the AC adapter when trying to finalize? You cannot finalize using battery power only.

Link to your manual:

Canon DC210 Manual

(What format discs are you using?)

Instructions for finalizing begin on page 61.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Is there any way to finalize a mini dvd disc from a Canon DC210 without a working camcorder?


hi, i dont think so usely it as to be made by the camera,normally when you finish recording
you press pause and then stop and let it go for few minutes and the camera should finilize
the disk by chapter,then eject.

hope that will help

Initialize the discs then record...but then it still wont play on the computer/dvd player Canon camcorder dc210


I have a Samsung recorder, and it requires you to "finalize" the disc before it will play on another unit. Check your manual for specifics, or look in your menu for the "finalize disk" option. Hope this helps...

My canon dc210 will not initialize or finalize


Check and make sure you are using - disks rather than + disks. I had that same problem when I first got mine and it was because I had + disks.

How does one transfer the video or 'still pictures' from Canon DC210 Camcorder onto their PC?


All you should have to do is finalize the disc. Put it in your DVD drive and select the scenes and photos. you need to have DVD playback software to play the disc also if its a DUAL layer disc you have to make sure the drive in your PC can play DL.
Enjoy,
Lee

I have canon dc210 and the problem is the video wont work on adobe premier


A substantial percentage of my Memorex 3.5 "CDs won't finalize, and when I subsequently try to review the photos on the camera, it tells me there are no files on it. Nothing will download to the computer via the USB either.
There is a software program that always saves me when I get careless and fill the disk to full. It''s called CD Roller. It''s called CD Roller. good luck please mark the post with a fixya
