Hi: Please i have the sony handycam model:dcr-dvd602e and i had recorded a whole disc with it ( 30 min.) then i finalize and it was completly finalized but after that or at the end of finalizing a message...

oops....something happened during the finalizing process and it failed. Hope you had a back-up in your computer of the disk. It doesn't need to be finalized to have it in the computer, just in case this happens. Looks like your disc got erased.

Finalizing disc

In order to finalize the disk you must have it plugged in. So no one does it on accident. After it is finalized you will be able to open it up on the computer or on most DVD players. I had the same problem at first, I have the same camera, I love it now...

I hope this helps you, let me know..

I want the pictures and video off my DVD-RW on to my computer

Yes, you must finalize to view the dvd in a stand-alone dvd player.

No, battery doesn't have to be charged but the camera does have to be plugged in to do finalizing.

After, finalizing the disk, and you are in fact using DVD-RW (re-writable) disks, yes you can un-finalize them within the Canon camera to record more video.

I have used the same 3 rewritable disks on my Canon over and over again to record many hours of footage.

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!
