Re: disc finalizing.

Not sure if this is it, but is your battery charged? Make sure you turn off your camera and try charging your battery first, they retry.

Power on the camcorder. Push the disk navigation button, then the menu button. Scroll down until you find the option to finalize disk. Follow the instructions on screen. You will need to have it hooked up to the ac adapter inorder for it to work. Good Luck!

In order to Finalize you have to plug in the power adapter.
It took me forever to figure it out.

Finalizing a dvd

THis solution follows on from ThaMP3Doctor's one which i rated 'helpful', as although it doesnt solve the problem it gave me the clue which helped me to solve the problem i posted above - so im kind of answering my own question here!

The reason THaMp3Doctor's solution was only rated helpful is becasue as far as i can find, you cant finalize the disk in your PC, you have to do it in the camcorder.

so here goes: Following ThaMp3Doctor's comment that if the disc is full it doesnt finalize i checked to see how full my disc was - it only had 25 secs of record time left. so i deleted a scene i knew i wasnt going to use and tried to finalize again = it worked! :-)

Please give this a try and rate my solution as would like to know if others have success with it. good luck!

Cannot finalize dvd-r

Have solved the finalized problem by simply looking on the Canon website and read that you have to plug the camera into the wall to do it! If only they simply put this in the manual!!! Goodluck!

Finalizing dvd

I had the same problem for about an hour. I finally got it, though not sure how. I think it had something to do with the green button on the on/off switch. I pressed it down while at the same time pushing the on/off button down to "mode". When I went back to finalize it yet again, I got the option to select "Yes". Hooray!

Problem in finalizing the disc over camcorder.

Inorder to finalize the disc you must purchase, or have a piece for the charger that looks like a battery. it plugs into the charger than into the camera. The camera will not finalize the disc without it incase the battery runs out, than all info would be lost.

A huge pain in the ***. I know, I have the same problem.
