SOURCE: Unable to Finalize Disc/Finalize Option Blacked Out

Just by plugging it into the charger it worked for me. I am guessing that it does not finalize until you plug it in just in case the battery level is low.

SOURCE: Mini-DVD playback

two things:

1) connect the camcorder to your computer using a USB cable and play it through that, by the way, what computer is it?

2) you can finalize without the ac adapter - its a built in safeguard to ensure that there is enough power to allow finalization to complete

My dvd player plays dvd discs ok. but when i use dvd burned on my computer shows no disc.the same disc plays fine on my computer


Some DVD and Blu-Ray players will not play a burned disc until it has been finalized. Finalize the disc on your computer then see if it will play. (Finaalizing a disc means it can no longer be recorded to, by the way.)

Need to know how to finalize recorded disc so that it can be played in regular dvd player


You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or

complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.

Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on

other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.

Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make

editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you

finalize it.

1



Press SYSTEM MENU. Press

; to select in the top left

corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.

2



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,

then press



:.

3



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc

appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the

Recorder.

4



Press OK.

"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may

take a few minutes.


When finalization is complete, the Index

picture screen will reappear.

You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or

edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.

A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.

Jvc dvd/vcr player records from vcr to dvd but only plays back the dvd on the jvc DR-MV79 won't play on any other dvd players


Have you finalized the DVD in question? Unfinalized discs usually won't play in other machines. Is the DVD type compatible with the other dvd players? (Some may not handle DVD+R for example; it is an acceptable disc for the jvc DR-MV79.) Try a different brand and type of DVD. Check your other players supported discs.

To Finalize the disc, Menu > Setup > Disc Setting > Finalize (if needed set Disc Protection to Off).

I hope this helps.

DVD will not finalize


I have a Zenith XBR413 that I have a problem with when I copy from VCR tapes to DVD-R discs. After I copy them, I can finalize the disc using the SETUP button on the remote and then choosing the very bottom disc icon at the bottom of the menu screen. It then leads you through the finalization procedure. But the disc will still not play on any DVD player but the XBR413

Finalizing both sides


A Dual Layered (DVD-R DL) disc has two recording layers on the same side of the disc. No recording is made on the 'other' side of the disc.

Finalising the disc will finalise both layers. Most probably your computer DVD drive cannot read both layers of the DVD-R DL disc. DVD-R DL discs can only be played back on DVD devices that are compatible with dual layered discs.

Check your computer DVD drive spec to see whether it can read DL discs.
