Need to unfinalize disks. I had them finalized and they will not unfinalize so that I can use the disk again.


If your mini DVD disk is a DVD-RW (or DVD+RW) and it had (previously) been finalized in the VR (or Video) mode, simply select the "unfinalize" option ... (in DISC - Camera mode, from the MENU - Disc Manager - Disc Unfinalize ) ... as in p. 82 of your manual.
If you do not want the video data on the DVD-RW disk anymore, you can simply re-format the disk again, so you can re-use the disk.

Sony camcorder 'Movie recording disabled'


You need to finalize it in the camera, the one you used.

Then you should be able to access what little data if any on it.

If you can not get it to finalize then take both the camera and disk to a photo shop. They may be able to recover it for you.

Let us know the results. Good luck

Unable to format dvd+rw or-rw


Also I had the same problem. I have solved it by computer.
(1) make image file from finalized DVD (PowerISO)
(2) burn this image to dvd
(3) use camcoder to format that DVD

And next time I didn't get that error.
It worked for me.

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.

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 want the pictures and video off my DVD-RW on to my computer


Yes, you must finalize to view the dvd in a stand-alone dvd player.

No, battery doesn't have to be charged but the camera does have to be plugged in to do finalizing.

After, finalizing the disk, and you are in fact using DVD-RW (re-writable) disks, yes you can un-finalize them within the Canon camera to record more video.

I have used the same 3 rewritable disks on my Canon over and over again to record many hours of footage.

Problems with my Canon DVD model DC 210


make sure that "plus rw" is allowed to be used (dvd+rw). My DC330 requires "minus rw" (dvd-rw).

(You'd think the gurus would differentiate their specs better, no?)

Also, I just learned today that the charger needs to be plugged into to be able to finalize a disk. Found the answer in a review on Amazon, rather than in the manual. That's an hour of my life I'd like to get back.
