Battery died during finalizing

We borrowed this camera from a friend and when we were finalizing the dvd-r, the battery died. Now it will not let me re-finalize and my computer will not read the disk. Help!! It is a very important video.

If you cannot finalize the cd but the camera can still play it then you will have to dupe the video to the computer using firewire or usb or video/audio.
likley part of the writing to the vtoc was done and now cannot be repeated.
if you cant play it on the camera you will need more professional help to hack the dvd.

Finalizing dvd


I had the same problem for about an hour. I finally got it, though not sure how. I think it had something to do with the green button on the on/off switch. I pressed it down while at the same time pushing the on/off button down to "mode". When I went back to finalize it yet again, I got the option to select "Yes". Hooray!

DVD-R for video cam, not working in my DVD player


Make you finalized the video before you took it our of the camera. Finalizing the DVD will work on other devices otherwise your DVD disk will not be recognized until you finalize it.

Power disconnected during finalization


There's no way you can continue the finalization of the disc, the disc has been marked as finalized already, even a single power fluctuation when you are using ac power adaptor can affect the disc finalizing process, so it is better to use battery when disc finalizing

Battery died in the middle of finalizing


Hi, If you want to edit the video, try copying the unfinalized VOB or VRO file from the mini-DVD onto your harddrive by just putting it on the dvd drive of your pc.. u can use premire or some other tolls to get the work done and finally burn it another dvd as you like. good luck my friend sreejith
