Question about Panasonic VDR-D100 DVD Camcorder

Disk finalization error

I have 4 or 5 disks that the camcorder would not finalize. What can I do? Does the camcorder need to be repaired? It will need to "reset" in the middle of recording something for no reason!

Dont know if youve found a solution already, but:
you cant finalzie the disc using battery power, you need to use the ac adaptor. This is something you should have got with the camcorder. its basically the charger plus another cable. so, plug in the charger to the mains as normal. then remove the battery from the camcorder, you'll notice a round hole in the camorder, this is where you plug in the cable i mentioned earlier, the other end of the cable goes into the same size hole found on the battery charger. that's it - you now have power to the camcorder from the mains. switch on the camcorder as normal and finalize the disk.

    That was very useful. I'm sure Jaycar will have the plugs to make a lead that will work. Thanks

Camera will not allow me to finalize some dvd's


If your camera finalized the same type (+R, +RW, -R, -RW) of disk previously, the problem may be the disk itself. Some 2% of the disks (no-brand and copy-brand disks even higher %-age) are faulty and either do not allow recording at all or fail at some point.

Disk wont finalize samsung sc-dx103


Samsung support just told me that there has to be some space left on the disc to finalize it. In other words if you fill the disc with too much video, the disc won't be able to write the necassary info on the disc to finalize it. Support told me you needed 10MB to finalize. He also told me to leave 7- 10 minutes of free space which is ridiculous because the disc only records 20 minutes. I have complained to Samsung about this ommission from the manual and that the camcorder should know to leave enough space to finalize the disc.>

I had the same problem the manual don't tell you in detail have to finalize the disc . I had to go to this web-site to find out how . What's the purpose of the manual? Very un-happy Canon Customer


Hi, thanks for coming to FixYa.

Here is how to finalize a disk in your camcorder.
1) Plug in the power adapter, and put in the disk you want to finalize.
2) Press the function button. If your disk was recorded in VR mode, then go to step 3. If not, go to step 4.
3) Scroll right to get to menu.
4) Scroll down to get to Disk Functions.
5) Scroll down again to get to Finalize.
6) Scroll down again to Yes.
7) Press the function button.
8) Wait until it's done, then you can play your disk in a DVD player.

Remember, (very important). Don't touch or bump it while it's finalizing a disk. If you disturb it, you can mess up your disk.
Hope that helps you. Don't forget to rate my solution, and enjoy your videos.

Won't finalize or view on computer


You have to plug in the AC adapter to finalize a disc. It won't "finalize" on the battery alone.

Finalize


to finalize the disk for enabling discs to be  played on other devices. Connect this unit to the AC adaptor. Finalization cannot be executed using a battery. Rotate the mode dial to select the arrow. Press the MENU button, then select SETUP, FINALIZE, YES and press the joystick. Select whether or not to create a top menu, then press the joystick. When the confirmation message appears, select YES then press the joystick. hope this helps you. julie
