Are you using the AC adapter when trying to finalize? You cannot finalize using battery power only.

Link to your manual:

Canon DC210 Manual

(What format discs are you using?)

Instructions for finalizing begin on page 61.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

It is required to finalize the recording in the Camcorder in order to play the recording in any device like DVD player or in Computer.

First finalize the recording in the Camcorder and then try playing the DVD in any DVD player.

After finalizing the DVD, a DVD player will be able to play the disk.

Refer the User Guide page # 44 of 139 for the instruction to finalize the recording in the Camcorder.

Power on the camcorder. Push the disk navigation button, then the menu button. Scroll down until you find the option to finalize disk. Follow the instructions on screen. You will need to have it hooked up to the ac adapter inorder for it to work. Good Luck!

How do I "finalize" the DVD video so it can be copied and played

Finally...was able to get to a copy of the owner's manual. I knew it would be a simple solution, just needed to get to the instructions.

Finalizing disc

Make sure that the camcorder is plugged into the dc outlet, ie- plugged into the wall you can't finalize a disc just using the battery pack for the camera

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.
