Will Not Finalize

Hi; I am having quite a problem with my finalizing a disc. I feel I am doing exactly what the directions say to do....I hit finalize disk and it replies that "This function is currently unavailable". I am at a loss at what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated since I am not the best at solving any computer, camera, etc. problems. I usually end up begging my husband for help. I am really trying to solve this without letting him know that I am again in trouble with my new toy.....Thank you sooo very much for any help you can give me...

It may be because it is not a "Sony" disc.  I have the same problem with the camera when I use a Maxwell disc, but not a knock off brand -

I just bought the Hitachi DZ-MV550A NTSC camcorder and I cant get it to play on dvd player on the TV Can you please help me Thank you

you need to finalize the disc. With the recorded disc in, hit the "disc navigation" button and you will see a place to hit "finalize". Move cursor to "finalize" and then click "yes". You can only finalize a disc using the AC power source, it will not do it from your battery. You should then be able to play it on your dvd player.

Finalize the disc

depends what type of disc-rw's won't highlight sometimes because they don't always need to be finalized to play-insert the disc if r in another brand and see if you can finalize-go to bb or circuit and ask them if you can stick it in display and see if it comes up-if never proably was done already-also try different dvd players
