Un finalized disc's

Big problem....I was on vacation and I recorded about 6 or 7 DVD's using my Handycam. Instead of finalizing them when I was done with the disc's, I decided to wait. The next day I dropped the camcorder and it does not work...I pretty much smashed it. Now I have 6 or 7 disc's that are not finalized. I put them in my computer to see if I could retrieve the raw data, but the drive says it is blank. What can I do? Is there a program out there that I can use on my computer to finalize the disc's?

If your discs are rewritable, you could try putting your discs in your computer. Try opening the folders and try to open all the files. Some of the files may be your videos. If it opens your video player and plays your videos, wait until it plays everything to make sure that all your data were recorded in the disc. Copy everything in your computer and remove your disc. Try playing it again and if it works, then it's already ok. When you are planning to use it again, make sure that you format everything in the disc.

Some Camcorders need you to plug the charger to enable you to finalize it. This is to avoid your disc or data be destroyed or corrupted should your camcorder ran out of battery.

I CAN NOT TRANSFER FROM THE CAM TO COMPUTER I HAVE WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL AND MY COMPUTER SAYS THAT THE FORMAT ON DVD IS NOT SUPPORTED


Hi,

There are three ways of transferring the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer. One is by using the Picture Motion Browser Software, other by using the A/V, USB cable after finalizing the disc in the Camcorder and finally using the DVD-ROM Drive in the Computer after finalizing the disc. If you're trying to transfer using the 2nd and 3rd option, the the disc in the Camcorder should be finalized.

Also make sure that the disc is formatted in DVD-Video mode instead of DVD-VR mode. VR mode recorded discs can only be played back using a VR Compatible Software/Player or in the same Camcorder. DVD-Video mode recording will help you in playing the discs in all the Players and DVD Viewing Software.

I always recommend transferring the videos to the Computer using the supplied PMB Software.

Please check transferring steps and information from the link given below:

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.

Sony Handycam says movie recording disabled. How did this happen and how do I undo it?


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.
