Can't Finalize a disk on Panasonic DMR-EH60 DVD Recorder

I have a Panasonic DMR-EH60 DVD Recorder. I am trying to finalize a disk to make it playable on other machines. I have tried to follow the handbook instructions and an online tutorial but the menu I see after going Functions:To Others:Disc Management does not give the options (e.g. Finalize) that the instructions say it should. What am I doing wrong? Could this have been disabled?? What do I need to do?

It sounds like you haven't selected DVD first. When dubbing to DVD, you need to do this in HDD mode. When finalizing, you need to be in DVD mode for the finalizing options to come up.

I also have an EH60 which had this problem. When finalizing it made a grating sound when running the disc up to speed. It was ok for about three months and then same problem.
What we found was that the discs drive clamp would slowly build up with a fine dust from the disc plastic and when we cleaned the drive clamping faces it was fine.
This cleaning would require a strip down of the dvd unit to gain access.
What I have since tried is to use and old dvd and stick some double sided sellotape on the clamping area around the centre hole then load into the unit as normal and the eject the disc.
This has appears to work fine by picking up the fine powder from the drive plate.

    How do i finalize a disc


    ..issues with the DMR-E55 recorder:

    http://club.cdfreaks.com/f106/problem-recording-panasonic-dmr-e55-130046/

    ..here is your manual:

    http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/DVD-Recorders/model.DMR-E55K

    ...and on page 33 of that manual they discuss how to do the finalizations.

    From my experiences on a friend's DVD recorder,
    you need to go 'step by step' and in exact order or the processor
    in the machine may not see the correct labeling codes on your disk
    at the time you finalize. The "problem issues" referenced in the first
    link should help you keep from stumbling over an 'error prone' situation
    and may/may-not apply, but IF it does please contact your original sales location with that information.

    Can't find finalize program on on screen menu


    Select DVD drive, use right navigator and look for DVD management  page under other functions. That should offer you a finalize disc choice.               Or if disc is not full, try adding one more file small enough to fit, and finalizing should be automatic. Your disc may not be able to be finalized if your EH 55 didn't create it in the first place.                   Ricardo

    Cannot finalize disc with a panasonic DMREH60D


    I also have a DMR-EH60 which after some time failed to finalize recorded dvd's. When finalizing the dvd unit was making grating noises and then would display the finalized failed note.
    The machine was sent in for servicing which worked fine for a few months and failed again.
    In dicussion with the technican we found that the rubber drive plater for the disc was getting contaminated with a dust type residue which allows the disc to slip in it's drive causing the reader to be confused, with the result of a failed finalizing function.
    If you are game disconnect from the power and open the unit up and carefully take the top off the dvd unit and clean the plater with is-propyl alcohol, this seemed to work fine.The residue problem will be an on going problem however once you have cleaned it once it's pretty straight forward.Just be careful removing and reinstalling the dvd top cover.

    We need to narrow down where the problem lies. Even without finalizing the disc, you should be able to play back the recording. Can you do this? If you can play back the recording, the problem exists in the finalization stage and we'll need to concentrate there. Please update this and we'll proceed to the next step.

    Thanks,

    The disc drive motor is burned out, its junk...if you didn't finalize the discs, they're junk too unless you buy another Panasonic DMR.
