Hi there

There are three main possible causes of this problem.

You're right about the copyright. It can cause the finalization to hang.

Another possibility could simply be that your burning software is not finalizing properly. You can also try another one like ImgBurn here for free and see if it works with that. If it does, it was the software! You can also then keep ImgBurn as it is totally free to keep!

The third possibility is the the writeable DVD itself. You can try a different brand as various brands have a huge popularity of either working with one type of burn, and not another type. It could simply be the brand of DVD, and another one might just help!

HOW TO FINALIZE A DISC


Hi,

I replied you in premium post as well. here is with details...

Be sure to use the AC adapter to power the DVD Video Camera when
finalizing a DVD-R disc. Finalization cannot be executed using a battery pack. Now you will see finalize option in menu and can select it to finalize disc.

Good luck.

Finalizing DVD


If the size of the vhs recording was in 2hr mode, and the size of the recording itself is about 2 hrs, you may not have enough space to finalize. I would use your PC to finalize the disc - I use Dr. Divx, but you can find many finalizing programs out there.

Cannot finalize


Just to clarify - when you say try to finalize the disc on the DVD recorder, do you mean the DVD camcorder i.e. the VDR D100? if not and you mean an actual DVD recorder then this is where your problem lies, as the disc can only be finalized in the VDR D100 unit itself. this could be the reason behind the poor quality when you watch the clip using windows media player.

If i've got the above wrong, and you were talking about finalization problems on the unit itself all along then the following might help: how full is the disc you are finalizing? if it is pretty full then delete one or two unwanted clips and try finalizing again (this worked for me when i had this problem).
if the disc is not really full then it gets trickier. let me know if it works

Finalize


to finalize the disk for enabling discs to be  played on other devices. Connect this unit to the AC adaptor. Finalization cannot be executed using a battery. Rotate the mode dial to select the arrow. Press the MENU button, then select SETUP, FINALIZE, YES and press the joystick. Select whether or not to create a top menu, then press the joystick. When the confirmation message appears, select YES then press the joystick. hope this helps you. julie

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!

Inconsistently not transferring entire video


I use a 2.8gb Panasonic DVD ram disk on the XL quality setting. I do not finalize it when it is full. I place it in my computer drive, and use the Panasonic software that came with the camera to download it. It is stored as lossless mpeg2 in an untitled file in my Vista PC computer. From there I pick it up with either Windows movie maker or Pinnacle studio 11. I never lose a frame. I hope this helps you. I nearly lost my mind learning how to get the best quality out of this camera! It is very good for a consumer grade camera and the low price. The user manual could be written better.

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.
