Sorry Char7103,

Your not going to like the answer. You cant edit a finalised (uk spelling) disc. You can only edit DVD-RW discs not R, and then only if it has NOT been finalised.

Regards,

Spare head 2.

If the disk is finalized you cannot delete any clips - hence the term "FINALize"


If it is a DVD-R, try unfinalizing and then deleting the clip.

How can I edit my video disc


I don't know if your camcorder have features to edit videos in camcorder itself, while some camcorders can. If it dosen't, you need to edit DVD videos on computer with an editor such as ArcSoft ShowBiz. And you need to check your DVD disc style at first. Some discs support rewriting so you can shoot a video, edit it, delete it, shoot a new one all on one disc. Some don't, once you finalize it, nothing can be modifyed. For those rewritable discs, ShowBiz is really a good choice, which enables you to edit disc frames, customize buttons, layers, etc. It even support blu-ray discs editing and burning.

Using DVD-RW. How do I delete clips after finalizing, downloading to computer, then re-inserting the disk. I get message saying I cannot delete after finalizing


using this type of disc even in video or vr mode recording, it is not possible to delete the clips after finalization. unfinalizing the disc may not help.the delete option is possible only when you delete the last scene immediately from the camcorder.for reference see p.14 of the manual.so clips in between the first and last recording would not be possible to delete.an option would be to use your computer.select only the movie files that you would like to put on a disc and use your burning application for that purpose.at least you get to choose the clips you want and would have the capability of compiling it on a regular dvd disc.hope this helps.tnx:)

DVD issue


The delete option is for a DVD-RW and will not be highlighted when there is a DVD-R. And once a DVD has been finalized you cannot un-finalize. If it is a DVD-R the disc can not be changed after being finalized. If it is a DVD-RW you can format the disc after it has been finalized. This process will erase everything on the disc but it can be used again.

How to finalize


You need to transfer some pictures and video clips to computer, then delete the pictures (that you have transferred to computer) on camcorder to make some room to finalize the DVD.

Disk says not enough space on disk to finilize?


Each time you execute finalization, the disc remaining space will decrease by approximately 13 MB. If you don’t have enough room, it won’t allow you to finalize the disc.
To finalize this disc, you have to delete some pictures to make enough space. But don’t worry, before you delete those pictures, you can save them to your computer.
Find out the CDs came with your camera, refer your manual page 51 - 61 to install ‘PIXELA PTP Manager’ , connect your camera and computer with USB cable, and copy some pictures to your computer, then delete the pictures on camera side. If still not enough room, copy more and delete more. make it enough to do the finalization.

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

if you are using a -r disc finalize should appear in menus-if using -rw may not appear because rw's don't always have to be finalized to play in things beside camcorder- -r can not delete anything on them either they only record exactly as you are recording
