There are a few reasons this could have happened. This is why I don't recommend or would ever invest in a dvd camcorder. It is a great concept but burning dvd's and finalizing is a complex process and prone to failure without putting in the extra variables associated with a digital video camera. If the video is important enough you can have it restored by professionals at a place like this: http://www.minidvdrepair.com/ it can be relatively cheap compared to what some places charge. If need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

How do I finalize my disk once I have finished recording from VHS tape. How do I get the finalize to light up on menu on screen?


If they are +RW discs they cant be finalized and can only be played on +RW compatible players. Use +R, -R or -RW if you need a wider compatibility (DVD-VIDEO). Finalizing is quite easy following directions in the manual.

No finalize option available. Only allows me to


Make sure you are on the mode to view the recorded videos, then make sure the camera is plugged into the power supply and the finalize option should become available

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data


I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

I cant finalize my DVD recordings on my magnavox recorder.


Try this. In your SETUP options, ensure that AUTO FINALIZE and FINALIZE AT END OF TIMER are turned OFF.

Insert DVD to be finalized. Quickly press SETUP button. Be patient while DVD loads. (You will not see the "loading" bar on your TV screen. You will instead be mesmerized by the SETUP options!)

Once DVD has loaded the DISK FINALIZE option will be available. You can then FINALIZE.

I found it cheaper to get DVD-R from Radio Shack (about $5 for 25) for VHS movies that I know I want to keep. They do record up to 6 hours, even though the packaging is unclear on this point. Picture quality is as good as the expensive DVD's.

Universal Remote


I dropped and busted my origional remote control. I bought a new one from www.newremotecontrol.com , there are many sites that sell origional remotes, so shop around. it is not a universal remote, but the actual remote for the product... a little pricy, but worth it to have all the funtions available.

See the manual, page 8:

What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW
There are two recording modes available using this
recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Video mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Note :
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by
the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience
problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players.
Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or
video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in
other players.
