First of all - only DVD-RW discs in VIDEO mode can be unfinalised.

To unfinalise a disc

1. Place the camcorder on a table or other stable surfacebefore starting. Even slight impacts tothe camcorder ater the unfinalise process starts may mean you permanently lose your data.
2. Power the camcorder using the compact power adapter. You cannot unfinalise if the camcorder is powered only with the battery pack.
3. Press the 'FUNC.' key
4. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the botom left corner of the screen
5. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
6. Use the joystick to select 'UNFINALIZE'
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to answer the question 'do you wish to continue?'

How do i unfinalise a dvd on Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder


The answer is in the question, u cant unfinalize, finalizing ends the session, DVD-Rs need to be finalized so they can be watched, DVD-RWs can usually be watched with out finalizing, so can be wiped & used again or added to later, Rs can only be written to once RWs can be used again providing u dont finalize them.

Can you initialize a DVD-RW after you have recorded on it?


hi its geoff
yes you can. i dose say that no more recording can be done after the disc is finalized (thats true, you first have to unfinalize the cd to write more files on it.but you can initialize the disk at any time but you lose the recorded content(it frormats the disk) then you can use the disk over and over again. remember finalizing and unfinalizing requires you to plug the mains charger into the camcorder it assumes theres not enough power in the battery to do the job and will need the mains every time.but initializing only requires sufficient battery power .

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.

I have got the disk to unfinalize but I can't delete anything. I want to start over with DVD-RW but I can't.


Unless you recorded in VR mode, then you will not be able to delete single video clips. The only option left for you is to "initialize" NOT "unfinalize" the disk, (warning: this will erase your ENTIRE disk). Once you initialize, you will have an empty disk to re-record on. VR mode allows more editing and delete options but DVDs recorded in this mode are not compatible on all dvd players.

Cannot finalize dvd


Try playing the problem disks on your PC. If they wont play and the "Finalised" disks do then try recording a further brief clip on the problem disk. If that works then attempt to "Finalise" again. Can you play the problem disks in the Camera by the way?

I don't know how to delete a video clip when my disc has already been finalized. There isn't any 'delete' button that i can find. Please help me!!


If the disk is finalized you cannot delete any clips - hence the term "FINALize"


If it is a DVD-R, try unfinalizing and then deleting the clip.
