I have attempted to finalize a DVD after viewing the footage.
The video was there, I went to finalize the DVD and at the end of the finalizing process, the screen came up with Data Error. Now I do not know what to do. Have I lost my video. Is there another way to finalize that will allow the raw footage to be saved as a movie?

Try to use sony discs they are already formatted for sony video cams. less likely to getting errors. try putting it in a cpu and finallize from its burner drive. if not basically you have lost all the footage.

If the video is too long , then probably you would have to wait for quite a long time,
Therefore a better way is to shoot video at specific intervals , as it would create different files for each footage , so even if you lose one file , you have the others with you.
Now , in this case , I would advice you to please wait till the time you get the disc finalized and even if it's not finalized , and the disc has been written , then there is not much to worry as you might lose only a small part of the footage towards the end or ,you might not lose any part but the DVD might not work or be detected in PCs. It might be shown up as a blank one , which you know is not.
When i have had that happen to a customer i have had to replace the dvd drive assy to take of the problem. Your videos on your disc should still be retieveable once the drive has been replaced, also ask for any firmware updates for your drive assy. I hope this helps
You can play back the disc on most of
DVD players if you finalize it.
You can edit, delete pictures, or divide
movies on your camcorder
However, the disc can be played back
only on DVD players that support VR
mode when you finalize it.
The delete option is for a DVD-RW and will not be highlighted when there is a DVD-R. And once a DVD has been finalized you cannot un-finalize. If it is a DVD-R the disc can not be changed after being finalized. If it is a DVD-RW you can format the disc after it has been finalized. This process will erase everything on the disc but it can be used again.
Hi all you need to do is have it powering with the a/c adapter plugged in and into the wall it will then finalize. It wont do it if you do not have power going to it. You would think they would put this in the instructions.
