Question about Sony DVDirect (VRDVC20) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Finalize Error I was recording a live event using the Sony DvDirect from a DV cam using no tape through a firewire cable. Before it was able to finalize i pulled the firewire cable from the DV cam. This apparently causes a problem with the burner and it gave me a finalize error. So the disk did not get finalized and wont play, let alone be recognized by a windows machine. You can see that event was burned to the disk by looking at the disk but it won't be read by windows machine or nor does the Sony burner finalize it. Now This was a live event that cannot be reproduced. Can I Still save this Disk?!!!! What hardware or software?

You can not retrive unfinalised disk because no path was put into place to read the information that was burnt. Data yeap was burnt but way of reading it was put into place.

Burn dvd from vhs


i'm assuming you have a vcr to play your vhs tapes, just plug your audio/video cord from your vcr(out), plug into the audio/video vc10(in), start playing vcr and press rec botton whenever you want to start to record. make sure you can only use dvd+r. choose the quality for the length of time, at the end press 'function' to finalize the disc, then you are done.

"Finalize Error" Sony DVDirect VRD-VC20


I had similar problem (I have same model of Sony) on my dvr trying to record some movies, in my case it would start recording for a sec and then it would stop, problem in my case is that some of channels on satelite are scrambled and id doesn't allow even that they were stored on my dvr to get them on dvd drive, you can get descrambler on ebay but I just gave up cause it's too much hassle. Maybe you have similar problem cause I don't know who is your tv provider. Does your drive work on pc??? If so probably it is protection that is messing with your finallazing! I hope you find this helpful! By the way check my problem if you have any idea how to solve it I would very appreciate it! Nick
