I dropped my sony camcorder in a river and have several discs that have not been finalised is there any way to get them finalised please,


Mine was run over by our excavator. I went to Best Buy and the tech department stated that the discs have to be finalized in the camcorder. I called Sony and they said the same thing but that I could sent the discs to them and they would finalized them for $60 per side. I got on ebay and bought the exact same model for $60 and finalized all the discs.

The disc won't finalise


Here are the steps (please consider that these are the directions to the Movie Factory, so if you get the Ulead Studio Studio, expect it to vary slightly, probably not too much though)

1) First, it is best to finalize the DVD before editing. This can be done on any type (-R, RW, even RAM I believ, but I have never tried it on RAMs).
-in order to finalize, you must put the DVD into the camcorder and hook it up to its A/C adapter (the wall plug). Find the finalizing but and set your camcorder down (shaking it while finalize may disrupt the process)

2) Eject the DVD from the camcorder and put it into the E-Drive of the computer (the CD/DVD drive)

3) launch Ulead. Creating a new project

4) Once the program opens and you have your basic editing window (with a timeline and all), look for a button that says something like, "import from video DVD", which will allow you to transfer your footage from the DVD to the program, where you can edit.

5) Once you are finished editing, you'll want to export your movie, creating an .avi file, which turns the project file into a standard video file

Hope that wasn't too confusing. I know it seems like a hassel, but its not too bad. Ulead is quite a good program, and its very inexpensive. You can explore other options, but the only one I have found so far to support DVD formats is the Ulead systems.

Hope that helps

HOW TO FINALIZE THE DVD CASSETE AND CONNECT TO T.V SET?


Finalising a disc enables the disc to be played on any other compatible machine. By doing this it changes the disc format so that you can no longer record to it turning it into a Play Only disc. On your Panasonic DVD Recorder you can record to many (if not all depending on the model) of the following DVD Disc formats to the limit of their capacity over multiple occasions. The disc in question can be played back and recorded to on the DVD Recorder during this time but until it is finalised it will not work on any other machine.
DVD Formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+RW.
How do I Finalise my disc?
  1. When you have finished the initial recording stop the disc and press the ~FUNCTIONS~button.
  2. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "To Others" and press~ENTER~.
  3. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad Scroll down to "DISC MANAGEMENT" and press ~ENTER~.
  4. When the disc management screen opens you need to use the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad to scroll down to "FINALIZE" and press ~ENTER~.
  5. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "YES" and press~ENTER~.
  6. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "START" to begin finalizing the disc, please note by pressing start here you will no longer be able to record or edit the disc being finalized.
Finalizing may take up to 15 minutes.
Do not disconnect the mains power in this time. A message appears when finalizing is finished, press the enter button when this appears. It will now play on other compatible machines.

Cant transfer footage from Canon DC201 onto computer (and eventually internet) Do I need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer?


You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.

One of two things has gone wrong
1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely
2. You have not finalised the disk.

You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.

Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.

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.

Cannot Finalize my DVD


We had the same problem, and had the camera exchanged and same thing happened with that one.
I called Canon, JVC, and Memorex, because those are the discs that we used.
Everyone just blamed each other, for either, bad discs, or bad camera.
What we finally came up with was, we have a recordable DVD player that was fairly cheap, under $100. We hooked up the camera to the DVD and copied it to a full size disc. It somehow finalized the disc.
We were also told that we could bring our disc to a video place to have them do it, finalize it. I would cost us $85 per disc.
I hope this helps. I can tell you though, I am returning this camera and getting a different one. We are very disappointed in that finalization step. We almost lost everything!

Finalizing disc


You're doing the right thing and you also have the manual. You are also able to see 'finalise' in the menu, so the camcorder is ready to perform the finalise function.

There are no 'hidden' steps. With your wall adapter plugged in and switched on you should be able to finalise.

Make sure you do not move the camcorder or switch off the wall adapter during finalisation - this could cause problems.
