How to finalize a CD-R disc

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.

I want to delete a part of what I recorded on my Handycam before I finalize it

I'm confused by your ?-you state you have a HC14 Mini DV cam which is tape but your asking about dvd-if you have dvd you can only delete on rw discs-not r type-doesn't matter before or after just won't work-if not transfer to computer and edit that way and reburn new dvd

Format a cd

First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

When should I use a DVD-R / DVD-RAM / DVD-RW?

Write Once – After finalizing, a DVD-R disc can be played back in approx. 95% of home DVD players and PC DVD drives Capacity – 30-60 minutes (depending on the selected filming mode) of high quality motion video can be stored on a single of a disc. Re-writeable – DVD-RAM allows for recording and re-recording of movies and still photos up to 100,000 times per disc. DVD-RAM is like a removable hard drive. Compatibility for video playback of DVD-RAM in standard home DVD players is fairly low. DVD-RW cannot store true .jpeg digital still photo’s like DVD-RAM, however it is re-writable and has 80% compatibility with home DVD players.
