To finalize the disk:
Select MENU --> then select: DISC OPERATIONS
then select: FINALIZE
then select: YES ... to go back to MENU
During the disk finalization, a progress bar is displayed. Close the MENU only AFTER the screen display returns to the DISC OPERATIONS menu
It's possible that, for some reason, the disks aren't compatible. It can almost drive you crazy trying to figure out why. To find out for sure if this is the case, try some new Panasonic discs, with the same specifications as the old ones that worked, and see if they work. If they don't work, you're probably having a dvr issue with the laser lens or related parts within the camera. There are many issues with dvrs that develop over time, requiring replacement parts and service. In those cases, it's usually better to get a replacement camcorder. The new HDD camcorders are immune from a lot of problems inherent with dvr and tape recorders.
Make sure you have the correct disk. There are different types for example dvd-r or dvd+r or dvd-rw or dvd+rw etc. Look in your manual to determine which is correct for your camera. And, make sure the disk you put in is new and was not used before as a dvd-r or dvd+r can only be used one time.
i had the same problem. you may have plugged your power supply into the a/v slot near the function button..that is what i did. there is another place near the lens to plug it in. try that and then finalize should be an option.
