For some reason one of the discs that i have recorded on will not let me finalise. When i put the disc in it says recording disabled and then i go to the finalise menu and the finalise selection is unhighlighted. How can i fix this so i can finalise the disc and use it on my computer?

I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

If you did make a audio CD, the toaster (CD R burner) should have finalised the CD.
But not all CD players are compatible with the CD R's. A normal CD has a metal coating as reflective coat. CD's and DVD's you make yourself only have a dye that is changed from colour, by a laser. Older CD players can't read the digital info. Newer players for that reason have a logo CD R and CD RW compatible.
If you think you did not finalise the recording, you should try to do so in the computer you made the CD in the first place. Using the same program choosing finalise.
Finalising a disc enables the disc to be played on any other compatible machine. By doing this it changes the disc format so that you can no longer record to it turning it into a Play Only disc. On your Panasonic DVD Recorder you can record to many (if not all depending on the model) of the following DVD Disc formats to the limit of their capacity over multiple occasions. The disc in question can be played back and recorded to on the DVD Recorder during this time but until it is finalised it will not work on any other machine. DVD Formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+RW. How do I Finalise my disc?
When you have finished the initial recording stop the disc and press the ~FUNCTIONS~button.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "To Others" and press~ENTER~.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad Scroll down to "DISC MANAGEMENT" and press ~ENTER~.
When the disc management screen opens you need to use the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad to scroll down to "FINALIZE" and press ~ENTER~.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "YES" and press~ENTER~.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "START" to begin finalizing the disc, please note by pressing start here you will no longer be able to record or edit the disc being finalized.
Finalizing may take up to 15 minutes. Do not disconnect the mains power in this time. A message appears when finalizing is finished, press the enter button when this appears. It will now play on other compatible machines.
The problem i think is from the Camera. But if you are a bit technical and have a T.V tuner card in your P.C what you can do is connect your camera to the pc tv tuner card with the A.V wire provided. With the software of your tuner card (if you don't have download Ulead Video studio or buy it) you can view and record your videos to your hardisk, then you can burn them to a DVD disk. if you have any questions you can e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.
One of two things has gone wrong 1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely 2. You have not finalised the disk.
You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.
Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.
